However, he quickly returned to the world of film, and in 2004 he dropped out of the studio altogether.
– I made a conscious decision to be in good movies, Gordon-Levitt has said about his decision.
The American actor is also the founder and owner of the internet platform Hitrecord.
It is a platform where users can post their art or creative projects. Then all users can edit and remix it as they wish. And if the final product is purchased, everyone who has contributed to the final product will get a bite of the pie.
“I wanted to be creative and no one let me be,” Gordon-Levitt told the American online media IndieWire in 2010.
Then he had to find a way to be creative himself, he explained about the reason why he threw himself into entrepreneurship.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt co-founded Hitrecord with his brother Dan. Originally as a website where they even posted videos so they could get feedback.
But he lost his brother a few years later when he died of an overdose in 2010. Dan turned 36 years old.
