Obnoxiously Objectifying Thursdays XIII: Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a love-you-longtime crush for me - as in, since before he got hot. While everyone else was considering emigrating to Australia for Heath Ledger's accent in 10 Things I Hate About You, I was just pining for the cute, accessible, nice-guy JGL.

(500) Days of Summer, and particularly his "just had sex" Hall & Oates musical scene, reignited the flame. I was reminded of such salient facts as: "he has dimples" and "he raises his eyebrows cutely" (Is cutely a word? For Joseph, it should be.)

And then...some time around Inception he got all "sexy" and I had to share him with people who liked their men manly - sharp suits, muscles and smouldering eyes - you know, the usual.

"OK FINE," I sighed. "I suppoooose I can handle this new Joseph. But that's because it's True Love™. My loyalty conquers superficial changes, because I know the real him."

And then he did this, and now I guess I just have to share him with everyone. Including, like, all the gay men ever. Transition from cute teen flick nice guy to super studly pillar of machismo: complete.
