With his new movie "Looper" set to hit theaters on September 28th, Joseph Gordon-Levitt scored himself a feature in the October 2012 issue of Flaunt magazine.

The 31-year-old actor looked handsome while posing for both indoor and outdoor Michael Muller shots while talking about his upcoming movie "Looper" and being an actor.

Highlights from Mr. Gordon-Levitt's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Flaunt!

On how he views himself as an actor:
"Leading man is not a term I would use to describe myself. I'm lucky enough to play parts I enjoy. Here in L.A., they like to distinguish a 'leading man' from a 'character actor,' and I don't like that. I think a leading man is someone who simply plays themselves and who also happens to be handsome. Someone like Cary Grant. And I love Carey Grant. But I'm not him."

On having a character written for him:
"That's the first time that's ever happend in my career. And obviously, it's a real honor, coming from a filmmaker I admire so much. Not long after we shot "Brick" together, Rian [Johnson] started telling me about this time travel idea he had. That was in 2003. A couple years later, he wrote the script and we took it from there."

On his character in "Looper:"
"He's a sad guy. On the surface he looks like a badass and a killer, but in reality he's not living the life he wants to love. He doesn't have anyone or anything he cares about."
