Joseph Gordon-levitt - Joseph Gordon-levitt Hates Fame

Joseph Gordon-Levitt hates being recognised.

The 'Looper' actor says he doesn't feel comfortable with people coming up to him just because he's famous although he is starting to accept it a bit more.

He said: ''I never liked the recognition. It always made me feel uncomfortable that just because someone is on TV, they're in another class. It's unhealthy and fascist. I still don't like it, but I've learned that there's a distinction between someone saying, 'I saw 'Inception' and it really meant something', and 'Ooh, you're famous, do you know that celebrity person?' ''

Joseph wants to be known for his work and recently revealed he aspires to be as good a director as his 'The Dark Knight Rises' director Christopher Nolan, after makinghis directorial debut with 'Don Jon's Addiction'.

He said: ''I've been a fan of his since 'Mememto', which was a Sundance [indie] movie. He brings that same independence to these huge movies.

'''The Dark Knight Rises' hasn't been made by a corporate committee. Nobody at Warner Bros. is telling Chris what to do.''
