  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Will Artificial Intelligence Destroy Art As We Know It?
    Jul 2 2024

    Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt spends a lot of time thinking about creativity, technology, and how the two collide. In this episode, Joseph shares his thoughts on a not-too-distant future in which AI-generated content will be able to “make people laugh, make people cry, and win all the likes and awards”. He also talks about theater programs in school, why he used to worry that Hollywood would “infect” him, which of his characters he personally identifies with, and why his toughest day as an actor came on the set of a Pop Tarts commercial.

    Joseph’s latest film is “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F”.
