Joseph Gordon Levitt
He is the epitome of the intelligent, well read, high school outsider looking through at the everyday frivolities. The boy everyone secretly crushed on or wanted to be. Still embodying that I‑don’t-care-attitude actor and director Joseph Gordon Levitt even parties and sweats in his glasses.
