If there was a time to not love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, now isn't it. The 500 Days of Summer actor has made us love him even more because all he wants to talk about is the 'F' word. Yes, feminism. 

After expressing to the public that he is a proud male feminist, the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For actor has encouraged his fans and followers to submit their own views on the label to his collaborative production company, hitRECord.

There aren't many male celebrities that touch on the taboo subject of feminism, and we're glad that JGL took a stance to understand the meaning behind the word and encourage the public to debate the topic. "It's complicated, and I grant that it's complicated," the actor admitted, "but I think it's a really great thing for us all to be talking about."

Your mother has raised you well, Joseph.
