We all fell in love with Joseph Gordon-Levitt back in the day with "10 Things I Hate About You" and then again in "500 Days of Summer" because of his geeky, boy-next-door charm. With "Inception" coming out this summer, Gordon-Levitt proves that he can hold his own next to some Hollywood heavyweights. Joseph Gordon-Levitt talks to Details about smoking pot, becoming an adult actor and how he stays creative.
On keeping any potential child-star self-sabotage in check:
"When I was in high school, I loved smoking weed. I loved it. But I cut myself to once a month. That was my rule. And so as the first of the month came closer, my friends would be like, 'All right, what's the plan this weekend?' And actually it's really cool -- when you do it that infrequently, you can really trip. I still do that sometimes; I go on little weedfests. I'm a pothead. That's my drug of choice."
