Joseph Gordon-Levitt Opens Up About His Brother

Filed under: Sad SadYoung Hollywood

Wow. Powerful stuff.

Six weeks ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was dealt a terrible blow when his brother, Dan, shockingly passed away. In the most difficult time in his life, we imagined he would take a breather from work and spend some time with his family,

But last night, Joseph showed how strong he really is by attending a HitRECord.org event at UCLA. Though the night was about his website, Joseph took a minute to talk about his bro and how he would have wanted Joe to continue helping the program.

Really sad, but also kind of sweet to hear him remember his brother so fondly.

Check out the video (above) to hear Joseph talk about Dan.

Neighbor Reveals Details On Tragic Death Of Joseph Gordon Levitt's Brother

Filed under: DrugsSad Sad


The brother of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dan, passed away suddenly on Monday and many believe it was due to drugs. He had been staying with his girlfriend in an apartment in Hollywood and their neighbor believes that he may have been getting into trouble.

The neighbor said:

"They ( Dan and his friends) had been partying, and we were woken up with the girl screaming. She came running out to the front garden of their apartment and some people went out to help her.

The paramedics were called, but he was found dead surrounded by needles and syringes. He had been living here on and off for the past few years, and he and his friends were not very popular to tell you the truth.

One time they set a car on fire infront of the building, and there was always groups of people coming and going from that apartment. I'm sorry that he died, but I'm honestly not that surprised either.

A source from the police department believe the death was drug related and the case has been closed. An autopsy was completed, but results are pending due to toxicology results."

So sad.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Brother, Dan, Passes Away

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad


This is truly devastating news.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's brother, Dan, has passed away.

The actor posted the following message on hitRECord, his new media project's website:

BURNING dAN brightly embodied that bold beastly bliss sometimes referred to as "the creative spirit." He was my chief collaborator on the foundational incarnations of hitRECord.org over the years and continues to inspire us ever the more. He would absolutely positively insist that we not let this bad news deter us on our collective mission. That said, I might not feel up to it for a little while.

Watching this community blossom into what it has become never ceased to amaze him and me. We would regularly marvel at it and high five. Thank you all for that. There he is now pouring heaping hollowed watermelons full of love over each and every one of us.

So let's celebrate him, he's fucking awesome:

See you real soon,
thanks again…

There's no news yet on what happened, but he was actively using his Twitter account until Sunday night.

So sad.

Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones during this unbelievably difficult time.

R.I.P., Dan.
