Joseph Gordon-Levitt apologizes for "pretty girls aren't funny" comment



"Well, I didn’t quite say THAT, but I did misspeak and uh I’m actually glad you asked me about that ‘cause I was embarrassed uh sometimes the words come out really wrong and um....sometimes the words come out really wrong in front of thousands of people and it’s embarrassing and I do apologize. I think what I was trying to get at was that in our culture girls do get pigeonholed and I was talking about um my co-star in the movie Looper, Emily Blunt, and um I was trying, and failing, to pay her a complement and the fact that she really uh succeeded in avoiding those traps in not getting pigeonholed, even though she is a very good looking young woman, she is so funny and plays such a badass and a strong uh woman in Looper and uh so thanks for asking me about that."
