The former ‘3rd Rock from the Sun’ star sits down with ‘Details’ to promote his upcoming film ‘Inception,’ costarring Leonardo DiCaprio!

Child star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is all grown up and showing off his adult side in the August issue of Details! In the magazine, Joseph talks about his struggle making the segway from sitcom to film roles, and his decision to finally give up one of his biggest vices!

“When I was in high school, I loved smoking weed,” Joseph tells the mag. “I loved it. But I cut myself to once a month. That was my rule.” Seems like a move that is definitely paying off for the actor!

Joseph says of his years following the cancellation of his hit NBC sitcom, “I was scared and depressed for a while. Not that I had any reason to fucking be depressed—I mean, I was going to college and everything. It was not like I was hungry. But absolutely. I was like, ‘Shit, I don’t know if anybody’s gonna let me act. They’ll let me be in another sitcom, but I don’t want to do that.”

Less than 10 years later he is a Golden Globe nominee starring in what will most likely be this summer’s biggest film and a rumored front runner for the next Batman flick. Not too bad!
