Joseph Gordon-Levitt: That's why he took a Hollywood break


US star Joseph Gordon-Levitt withdrew from Hollywood for a good two years. He now explains the reason for this in a new interview.

From the 1990s, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (39) gradually earned a name in Hollywood. He got numerous supporting and leading roles, including in the romantic comedy "500 Days of Summer", in Christopher Nolans (49) "The Dark Knight Rises" or alongside Natalie Portman (39) in "Hesher". In a new interview with the US newspaper "The Hollywood Reporter", the actor now explains why he decided to take a break in Hollywood.

Not because he was tired of acting

Gordon-Levitt was "extremely grateful" for all the projects he was allowed to implement, "but I didn't stop because I wanted to quit acting or working. It was because I wanted to spend time with my children." His first son was born in August 2015, followed in June 2017 by another son with his wife Tasha McCauley, with whom he has been married since 2014.

Now he has found a certain balance and take it slow. At that time he started three films a year, after which he realized one project every year. He worked on "7500" in 2017, on "Project Power" in 2018 and on "The Trial of the Chicago 7" 2019. "All three films are coming out in the second half of this year. But yes, it was a great two year Break – and it was the longest break I've ever taken from acting since I was six years old. " The break meant a lot to him and he was very grateful that he could take it.
