Yesterday, the PopStopTV team reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt wasn’t happy with the way GQ wrote about his brother’s death. GQ used the words “alleged drug overdose,” which Joe says is factually incorrect. The actor also said he wished the magazine used the quote about him talking fondly of his brother.
Now, GQ is speaking up about the issue. The magazine posted its response on the GQ website. The magazine claims that, “because the writer, Amy Wallace, and her editors understood the pain of Dan’s passing caused the Gordon-Levitt family, the story sought to be respectful-and brief-in the way it described his death, which GQ felt was a relevant fact in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s biography.”
GQ stands by what it wrote about Dan Gordon-Levitt, and says the facts are all supported and confirmed by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
Joe never speaks about private matters such as his brother’s death. However, now that GQ has responded, we wonder what his next move will be?
