Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a younger incarnation of Bruce Willis’ hitman killer in new film ‘Looper,’ the young actor has revealed receiving praise from his on-screen older self was the highlight of the shoot. ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ actor was astounded when the ‘Die Hard’ star said good things about his abilities on set. According to Contact Music, Joe said of Mr Willis: ”He’s a very understated guy, which I admire.
It means you know he’s being honest.” ”But we were doing a scene where we were yelling at each other and between takes he said, in his off-the-cuff manner, ‘Ah, you sound like me.’” ”That was a moment of glorious victory for me. I kept it cool, I didn’t want to embarrass myself, but I was grinning ear to ear on the inside.” Aw! The 31-year-old star spent three hours every day in makeup to get him looking more like Bruce, including having a prosethic nose fitted and his eyebrow ‘realligned’.
Joseph also studied Bruce’s acting tecnique meticulously by watching his films and studying his voice and body language, to ensure his portrayal was accurate: ”I watched his movies a lot, but I focused on the recent ones. I was less interested in coming off like a young Bruce – I was interested in matching him now.”
