Man Candy Monday: Joseph Gordon-Levitt


This week's Man Candy Monday pick is Joseph Gordon-Levitt! Let's face it, he's been cute since Angels in the Outfield and 3rd Rock From the Sun and he's continued to get more attractive with age. I think 500 Days of Summer is when people started taking note, although I think that he wasn't noticed as much as he should have been in 10 Things I Hate About You. Either way, I think we can all (most of us?) agree that he's worthy of Man Candy Status.

Great choice! That first pic in the sweater is too cute. I loved him in 3rd Rock, but I think his first great solo role was in Brick, it was such a great modern take on the classic noir mystery.

OMG! Megan is so right! I was thinking he looked familiar and couldn't place him . . . but it's totally that he looks like JP from the Bachelorette (who is also a fox).

ellie said...

He's such a great guy and actor.

Alyson said...

Cutie! So funny that I think of him still as the little kid in angels in the outfield yet I'm only one year older. He has that cute baby face!

Ashley said...

bananas. said...

this free bird said...

I so agree with this one! He is so fantastic.

Jules said...

This is a great selection and very worthy of MCM status! I've liked JGL since 10 Things I Hate About You and liked him even more when I finally saw (500) Days of Summer. He's in some independent movie that was released this summer called Hesher. I really want to find a theater that's playing it or at least get it on DVD when it comes out.

Leesh said...

Because of you, I stayed home after my trip to Vegas and watched Stop-Loss, G.I. Joe and 500 Days of Summer to get my JGL fix. Great choice.

It's so hard to believe that he is Tommy from 3rd Rock from the Sun with that gross long hair. But he was a cutie in 10 Things I Hate About You.

Oh, My Darling said...

He seems like a genuinely smart, nice guy.
