Joseph-levitt

Birth Name: Joseph Leonard Gordon-Levitt

Place of Birth: Los Angeles, California, United States

Date of Birth: February 17, 1981

Ethnicity: Ashkenazi Jewish

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is an American actor, writer, director, and singer. He is known for playing Tommy on the television series 3rd Rock from the Sun, as well as for his roles in the films 10 Things I Hate About You, (500) Days of Summer, 50/50, and The Dark Knight Rises.

Joseph is the son of Jane Gordon and Dennis Levitt. His brother was photographer and fire spinner Daniel Gordon-Levitt, and his maternal grandfather was director Michael Gordon. Joseph is married to businessperson Tasha McCauley, with whom he has two children.

Joseph’s parents are both Jewish. His father’s family were Russian Jews and Polish Jews, while his mother’s family were Lithuanian Jews, Romanian Jews, and Russian Jews.

Joseph’s paternal grandfather was Milton R. Levitt (born Milton Levitz, the son of Louis Levitz and Fraudel “Fannie” Isaacson). Milton was born in Ohio, to Russian Jewish parents. Louis’s parents were Meyer Levitz and Lena Friedsohn (the daughter of Nathan Friedsohn and Rachel). Fraudel’s parents were Dave Isaacson and Irene/Lena Ida/Riva Feinstock. While census records list Fraudel as having been born in Russia, one source states that Fraudel, Joseph’s great-grandmother, was born in then-Ottoman Palestine, in 1894. At the time, known as the First Aliyah, there were residences of Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe in the area.

Joseph’s paternal grandmother was Celia Roth (the daughter of F. Charles Roth and Fanny/Fradel Mekel). Celia was born in Pennsylvania. Celia’s parents were Polish Jews. Fanny’s parents were named Boruch Mekel and Sarah.

Joseph’s maternal grandfather was film director Michael Gordon (born Irving Kunin Gordon, the son of Paul Gordon and Eva Kunen). Michael was born in Baltimore, Maryland. Paul and Eva were Jewish. Paul and Eva are listed as being born in Russia in some records, Lithuania in another record, and in yet another record, Paul is listed as having been born in Russia, while Eva is listed as having been born in Pennsylvania, to parents who were born in Russia. Paul’s parents were Leyb/Louis Gordon and Rachel Gviemer.

Joseph’s maternal grandmother was Elizabeth A. Cohn (the daughter of Isaac Cohn and Mollie Fineberg). Elizabeth was born in Ohio. Isaac was a Romanian Jewish immigrant. Mollie was a Russian Jewish immigrant.

The only odd feature is his eyes. Everything else looks cacasoid to me. Though is nose bridge is pretty low, it’s still bridged and not really wide..

neiltennant November 11, 2017 at 2:53 am

HE LOOKS afghan

there are tons of afghans with that look

Kenny Molz May 22, 2018 at 6:34 am

he look half asian to me

andrew November 29, 2015 at 12:04 pm

I don’t know if the last link is necessary, it’s not the only actor who is able to speak French: Jodie Foster, Bradley Cooper, Kristin Scott-Thomas and many others .

Capricious October 10, 2015 at 6:35 pm

I’m a full Semite myself and my eyes are kinda similar to his.

My father has big bulging eyes though, but mother’s eyes are small.

Trust me doesn’t mean I have Mongoloid roots. Lol

memphis October 13, 2015 at 5:44 pm

He’s of Russian Jewish ancestry and last time I looked most of Russia is in Asia. When someone is Semite that could mean Lebanese, Saudi or any Arab speaker or Afro Asiatic speaker. Jews originated in West Asia and some say North Africa but jumped continents thousands of years ago. Ashkenazi Jews y dna has the highest haplogroup radiation of E1b1b than other Jewish groups. Jewish people are mostly Middle Easterners that migrated out to almost every continent and in some cases mixed with other cultures including mine.

undashing October 18, 2015 at 6:52 am

Russians are White Europeans. The Native people of Siberia are Mongols.

memphis September 17, 2016 at 8:38 am

Russians that are of European decent are of Viking stock with maybe a litte Sami. Siberia is still Russia with a variety of Asian ethnic groups like the Yakuts, Intelmen, Tatars and other Turkic groups. Gordon Levitt looks very Asian but looks are deceiving but people of Jewish descent can have variety of phenotypes.

andrew November 29, 2015 at 12:07 pm

@ Capricious/Devotion/Theropod

if you claimed to be half or part Serbian you’re hardly “full Semite”.

visokozen September 27, 2015 at 12:43 pm

He looks like f****** asshole. :) End of discussion.

memphis October 13, 2015 at 5:45 pm

I agree.

athelya November 23, 2015 at 9:23 am

the opposite actually.. he looks really nice and friendly.

xoxo August 6, 2015 at 4:49 am

He was cuter when he was younger.

neiltennant July 30, 2015 at 3:09 pm

as @rekta said

he looks very mongolid

with this looks he can pass for turkish or afghan !

Rekta April 25, 2015 at 4:46 am

He looks Eurasian.

With a Turkic/Mongolian hat and a horseshoe mustache, he could pass as a Central Asian Turk.

ashash December 20, 2014 at 1:45 pm

He looks Jewish.

Shlomo Goldberg December 4, 2014 at 2:32 pm

He is an Ashkenazim Prince.

passingtime85 November 22, 2014 at 2:32 am

Jews didn’t originally keep surnames, they usually just used the designations of (insert male first name here) Ben(son of) (parent’s name) or (insert female first name here) Bat(daughter of) (parents name).

There were only 3 surnames that have been used for the last few thousand years.

Cohen, Levy, and Israel. Cohen and Levy come in many, many variations. Cohn, Cahn, Cone, Coen, Kohn, Kahn, Katz, Kain, Cain, Cane, etc. Levi, Levin, Levenson, Leven, Levine, Levitt, Levay, Levey, Lever, etc.

JGL’s original surname of Levitz seems to fit the mold.

jim May 22, 2014 at 4:06 pm

Vladimir Lenin, for example was of Ashkenazic Jewish, Yakut, and Slavic Russian ancestry

jim May 22, 2014 at 4:08 pm

(This comment is out of order, and in regards to my response several pages back)

sweetipie1985 March 28, 2014 at 5:31 pm

Yes I agree he does look like he might have some Asian in him. But still he’s handsome and very talented..

Nikki April 23, 2014 at 3:23 pm

Yeah youre right he looks as if he might have some asian ancestry

noneofyourbusiness December 3, 2014 at 2:00 pm

He does.

bobboomerang January 14, 2015 at 2:23 pm

“still”? Your comment implies that being handsome and talented is incompatible with being Asian.

H.Schlickmann February 20, 2015 at 9:55 am

Haha! True, it does!

Capricious April 3, 2015 at 4:38 am

Small hooded eyes = NOT ASIAN…

Slanted eyes with epicanthal folds = MOST LIKELY to have ASIAN roots

blahblahblah February 16, 2014 at 10:57 am

It makes sense that he’s Jewish.

Khazar February 6, 2014 at 4:01 pm

Ashkenazi Jews are the most homogeneous ethnic group according to genetic studies.

Dogg November 21, 2014 at 11:43 pm

The Khazar theory hasn’t been disproven yet but there is not much evidence to back it up.

neiltennant January 21, 2014 at 7:38 am

looks really good

i read that she has also spanish roots.

she was named after her aunt which had a spanish name.

neiltennant January 21, 2014 at 7:39 am

I’m sorry false person !

i wanted to write this about COLBIE SMULDERS

gordon levitt looks like an ugly guy

RIA KALINOWSKI January 13, 2014 at 8:10 pm

alot of jews have the name gordon and levitt

AnonymousPerson December 23, 2013 at 1:56 am

He doesn’t look 100% White. He looks sort of Eurasian to me. Like maybe 25% Asian.

michaelmichael January 8, 2014 at 10:15 am

Love JG-L. Totally agree looks like some Asian DNA in there, although 25% too high. I just googled “JG-L asian” but alas have found no proof. Here is a J-GL Asian doppleganger:

ashash October 10, 2013 at 11:51 am

I don’t understand why women find him so attractive. He is short and looks like a muppet. Not attractive.

andrew October 10, 2013 at 3:20 pm

they alwais use to be attracted by rich and famous men, no big deal

theropod October 12, 2013 at 12:47 am

You’re obviously a guy, are you not?

Funny, men always think that people (gays and women) are attracted to a man’s height (how stereotypical). He may be short, but he’s attractive in the face, and fit too. Totally out shadows his height.

andrew October 17, 2013 at 2:05 pm

he is around 176 cm, not so short. That is an average height for many actors in the showbiz

ashash October 18, 2013 at 5:08 pm

I agree.

theropod June 24, 2013 at 2:36 am

He is very Jewish looking.

Though when he was a kid I thought he had a little bit of Islander in him.

But as he grew up he does look like his actual ethnicity.

follers June 24, 2013 at 2:55 am

He has that look like Ezra Miller, Leo Howard, Gilbert Gottfried, and Roseanne Barr (who are Jewish).

theropod July 16, 2013 at 6:14 am
follers July 16, 2013 at 6:34 am

Antonio Sabato, Jr. doesn’t look like Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And besides, Sabato, Jr. has Jewish roots on his mother’s side.

andrew July 16, 2013 at 3:17 pm

The last one is Marco Borriello a famous footballer from Naples. Ethnic Italians are 55 millions (in Italy), they can be very heterogeneous in terms of look, you can find everything. I’d say many Italians ,expecially the Mediterranean looking ones, have big brown eyes, not small/squinty. Gordon-Levitt doesnt look like the average Italian

theropod July 17, 2013 at 7:36 am

I didn’t intend to put lookalikes. I intended to put Italian men that have small eyes.

Whilst Levitt’s eyes are smaller than the average Caucasian, it doesn’t that mean an Italian’s eye shape will be considered ‘big’. It’s just that Levitt has very small eyes, almost similar to an Asian.

Italians do not mainly have big brown eyes. That’s Egyptian/Northern Africa for you – They have exceptionally large eyes.

More Italian men:

I only saw one big eyed guy up there.

andrew July 17, 2013 at 4:49 pm

@theropod

is the 2nd pic blue-eyed guy the one with big eyes in your opinion?

theropod July 18, 2013 at 7:18 am

<<>>

Yes, the only guy with big eyes. Are you gonna tell me that his eyes are small? Lol….or that he’s not of Italian descent?

andrew July 18, 2013 at 2:09 pm

Yes, def. big ones. He must be Italian being a so avid Italy fan

follers July 18, 2013 at 11:02 pm

I don’t like using pictures of people who are not famous. With famous people, I can at least (usually) verify their ancestry.

kj216 October 7, 2013 at 10:17 pm

yeah me to or at least some type asian lol idk. I really thought he was some mix of white/Filipino

ethnic May 22, 2013 at 8:05 pm

Hey Follers. If you can find a good one on bigstock let me know.

ethnic May 23, 2013 at 8:23 am

Done. This photo makes him look quite racially ambiguous, even more so..

ethnic May 23, 2013 at 7:02 pm

better photo I agree.

really? Im always curious about a persons background and always have been since I was young for some reason. that’s why I made this site i guess :)

ethnic May 23, 2013 at 8:04 pm

being a man Im blind to how handsome one may look lol.

ethnic May 23, 2013 at 8:56 pm

Wow I thought you knew. :)

fuzzybear44 May 23, 2013 at 11:45 pm

@ ethnic

Well I remember when I first came to the site,they thought I was a girl to.I don’t know if you remember (Drexxx),I talked to her for a good while,thinking she was a guy.

ethnic May 24, 2013 at 1:48 am

Hey fuzzybear. Yeh I remember that. That was funny.
I think a lot of people think I’m a teenage girl. :)

nnnnn May 24, 2013 at 1:59 am

Why all those Sherlock Holmses thought you are a
teenager girl? Most of “Tomilsons” are posted
by Follers. Maybe it’s a stereotyp, but your celebrity
choise isn’t of a teenager girl.

ethnic May 24, 2013 at 2:17 am

tomilsons? whats that?

nnnnn May 24, 2013 at 2:41 am

Follers knows.

nnnnn May 24, 2013 at 2:49 am

I never thought, he’s female and younger as 20

ethnic May 24, 2013 at 8:19 pm

Follers, thanks for the photo suggestions. I actually didnt think you were a teenager as you seem quite mature.

nice suggestions for the pics.

andrew May 22, 2013 at 2:36 pm

he (she?) thinks the combo suit+papillon makes him classy

Petrarca October 28, 2012 at 8:28 pm

I think he is an anomaly, neither of his parents really look like him. It tends to happen. But some Jews tend to have the squinty, hooded “asian eyes” like David Duchovny.

BEIJINGSHOTS September 26, 2012 at 8:37 pm

he looks Chinese to me.

Troy September 26, 2012 at 3:43 pm

I always though he was a mixed Asian. I look a lot like Joe, and I’m half Chinese/Mongolian, and half Canadian-french.

Michael September 17, 2012 at 11:29 pm

He looks Jewish.

ethnic September 10, 2012 at 3:35 am

Nice find follers.

Stephanie September 9, 2012 at 10:48 am

Jews are an ethnic group and a religion.

hii August 1, 2012 at 2:10 pm

i honestly thought he was whasian half white and asain for the longest time but he said it himself that hes white and actually jewish. it really is just an honest mistake and he laugh it off and everyone has drop it. he’s still super cute though.

levangelista36 August 3, 2012 at 9:48 am

His parents do not look Asian. It happens.

levangelista36 August 3, 2012 at 9:58 am

Oh. Well, I saw his father, and he does not look the slightest bit Asian. You’re right. He does resemble his mother.

levangelista36 August 3, 2012 at 9:58 am

Oh, you’re right. His dad doesn’t look Asian at all, but his mom kind of has that look.

al April 2, 2012 at 7:34 pm

He totally looks part Oriental. But then again Mel Brooks eyes can look Oriental at times too.

Jen March 25, 2012 at 3:36 pm

I want to have sex with him!!!

but he dont want to have sex with you


because you hiding yourself

Tricia March 25, 2012 at 3:33 pm

I just saw inception and Im in love with his voice- its sexy. Good actor.

Po March 17, 2012 at 9:33 am

Being an Asian, I think he does look a bit like us, and that’s ecxact why I was grout here by google. Oh well, I learned to judge a person if he/she is asian from the eyes from americanos… Dimples are common for Asian people, too.

john February 18, 2012 at 8:17 pm

Jewish is an ethnicity and a religion.

iii April 2, 2012 at 4:14 am

ASHKENAZI JEWISH is an ethnicity.

MightyBaal April 26, 2012 at 5:32 am

Jews certainly are no Arabs. Semitic however, yes. Arabs invaded the Mideast from the Arabian Peninsula, but Semitic peoples inhabited the Mideast long before that… Jews like other non Arab Semites such as Assyrians have their origins in the Mesopotamia region. Ashkenazi Jews are a mix of the expelled Israelites and mainly Romans (Italians) whom they mixed with upon their arrival to Europe. Ashkenazi Jews are approximately 60%-65% Mideastern according to genetic studies.

Gonk February 8, 2012 at 7:40 pm

he looks half Chinese

storm January 28, 2012 at 10:53 pm

he is clearly asian.

Hi January 14, 2012 at 11:03 pm

I’ve noticed a few Ashkenazi Jews look Asian.

Meg January 1, 2012 at 5:19 am

I’ve noticed some jewish boys have an “asian-ish” look. So I doubt he is really part asian. IDGAF what he is though. The boy is fiiiiiiiiiiiiiine!!!!!! Very talented too!

Yo! December 28, 2011 at 12:24 pm

All I know, is that he is hot. Who knew that he would grow up to be such a handsome young man?

simsalah bim November 1, 2011 at 5:42 am

ashkenazi jews descended from jews living in 14/15th century spain, who then dispersed all over the world.

me November 1, 2011 at 7:13 am

this is a lot of ignorance,Is ethnicity too

chickenwing October 2, 2011 at 1:05 am

He doesn’t look Asian at all, maybe Native American and yes blahblah I know some scientists agree that NAs came from Asia but everyone came from Africa too yet no one calls whites or chinese people Africans :-)

Liz September 28, 2011 at 2:42 pm

His mother looks exactly like Roseanne Barr (who is Russian Jewish).

Actually the link specified 5-19% (near the end of the article). You do have a point about 800 years of time passing by. Besides back in those years the population of Central Asia,anthropologists surmise, to be Caucasian and with ruddy complexion, but nobody knows for sure. I am actually one of those Eurasian-looking Jews myself–had my DNA analyzed, and I am only 0.5% Asian!

jim May 22, 2014 at 3:49 am

The Chinese and Yakuts had some contact with Jews historically, and no history of Anti-Semitism!

Samantha September 27, 2011 at 9:53 pm

He’s definitely half asian.

Oh wait…

Violet July 28, 2011 at 8:03 pm

Ye.. i thought he was part Asian.. but its true a few Jewish does have Eurasian look. Anyhow i first thought he was Asian because in the show
3rd Rock from the Sun (season 1, ep 16(Dick Like me) track: 13:26)

– he joked that he didn’t know what he did wrong because he was new in being Korean.

amber berg July 29, 2011 at 5:17 am

You can also tell he’s Jewish by the last name levitt

yes he is cute :)

dee July 8, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I still think Jonah Hill is Asian

david September 2, 2011 at 1:57 pm

he’s only part. he’s mixed, he’s not full asian. i dont get why people think it has to be one or the other.

unless you meant to say that you still think he’s part asian, then that’s perfectly acceptable.

many September 2, 2011 at 3:06 pm

He’s not part or full Asian. He’s just Jewish. He’s as Asian as your beloved Jonah Hill.

Serpent September 27, 2011 at 10:16 pm

Neither Levitt nor Hill are Asian. Why is this site in the habit of claiming people as things that they are not?

Cindy December 5, 2010 at 4:28 pm

yes he is gorgeous! always have and will always be a fan!

cristina October 11, 2010 at 11:33 am

Jewish guys are so hot lmao :P

GRamos May 15, 2011 at 9:26 pm

Jewish guys like Paul Newman, David Duchovny, James Franco, and Jake Gyllenhaal?

Logan Lerman is the hottest and most JEwish of them all.

mmmm James Franco is delicious

Jim October 10, 2010 at 1:39 am

Some Ashkenazic Jews have a Eurasian look. Some famous examples include Alex Borstein, Roseanne Barr, Leonard Nimoy, and the Gabor Sisters.

Tina October 6, 2010 at 11:58 am

I could have sworn he was part asian. Sorry to hear of the passing of his brother Dan. My prayers are with Joseph and his family.

He is Jewish. However I still believe he has Asian lineage. Have you seen his brother Dan?

lexi September 3, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Yeah. He’s very good looking too. Has eccentric taste in clothing as well.

zuzanna August 11, 2010 at 12:02 pm

he looks similar to a model called Francisco Lachowski who is in 100% half Polish and Half Brazilian, he mentioned that in one interview

just look at him

haha when i first saw him i have to admit i did think he was part asian…. but either way he is still gorgeous!!!

belle sirois July 31, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Without sounding too nosy I too was very curious about his ethnicity but I don’t think it matters. Damn he’s so sexy,talented,articulate and deliriously beautiful. Plus he speaks french ‘comme moi!’
Hmm I would go on but that wouldn’t be lady like. Besides I’ve already said too much ;)
Cheers!

ethnic August 1, 2010 at 10:11 am

So many people think hes part Asian. lol

he’s adorable and sweet and sexy and he’s a promising actor!

baalll July 27, 2010 at 11:44 am

he’s so cute! and just like you guys, i too thought he was half-asian.

zoe July 24, 2010 at 7:10 pm

I really thought that he was whasian (white and asian) but I was wrong a lot of people were wrong. Hahahaha ok I think someone’s lying to him I think the mother had an affair with an asian man and never told him or the husband but maybe they have Asian heritage or background in the family and it skip a generation and showed up on him it happens sometimes or the parents are really weird looking to the point that they’re white people but looks asian cuz they’re ugly and made good looking kids that everyone assumes are asian it happens sometimes.

ethnic July 24, 2010 at 9:59 pm

I lost you in that jumbled mess.

thecutest July 26, 2010 at 10:43 am

Zoe, that was hilarious. But I get what you mean. That fool DOES look Asian. I’m watching (500) Days of Summer right now and I’d be willing to stake big bucks on the fact that he’s got some Japanese in that family line somewhere. There are Japanese Jews and maybe his mother is one…?

Dave July 26, 2010 at 4:05 pm

His mother was born in L.A. Her parents were director Michael Gordon and a woman whose last name was “Cohn”. I’d seriously doubt he has any Asian ancestry. He’s hardly the only white person who has vaguely Asian features (look at Roseanne and Gilbert Gottfried, who are also Jewish).

ethnic July 27, 2010 at 9:35 am

He’s a Japanese Jew? thats a bit of a stretch.

Kerianna July 22, 2010 at 5:05 am

He is SO CUTE!!! I just wish he were younger. (sigh) The grow up so fast…:0)

Kerianna July 22, 2010 at 5:06 am

Sorry, it’s They not The.

IamTheLight July 15, 2010 at 10:19 pm

He is soooooo attractive, on so many levels…

selvy July 16, 2010 at 8:29 am

attractive if you like those shy fragile looking guys.

ecamouse37 July 20, 2010 at 12:25 am

Agreed. Too adorable. I was able to see him in Inception O.O Gah. Amazing movie.

ethnic May 5, 2010 at 10:17 am

Thanks Dave.

Dave May 5, 2010 at 5:18 am

“Levitt” can easily be an Ashkenazi Jewish surname (as is probably the case here), rather than Anglo-French

See for example this
http://www.ancestry.com/facts/Levitt-family-history.ashx

I was expecting that he’d be part Laotian.

He does look quite Asian but some Eastern Europeans do look like that. I assume he has some East European descent too.

Yeah he does look Asianish. Is there a picture of his parents or brother somewhere to see what they look like ?

He does look quite Asian surprisingly. :) I just saw that movie 500 days of Summer. Im usually NOT the type to watch romantic comedy films but this one was different. Id recommend it.

Can you just put Jewish for his ethnicity? Because he’s only Jewish, not Anglo-Jewish… that doesn’t make any sense, and he only stated that he is of Jewish heritage….

Anonymous December 11, 2009 at 7:21 pm

Jewish is not a nationality or ethnicity. It’s a religion. Also, the article does not say that he is part French. It just says that he speaks French.

ethnic December 12, 2009 at 5:40 pm

Levitt is a Anglo-French name.

Jewish is an ethnicity and a religon…its both

Dr. Epic August 8, 2009 at 1:15 am

He’s jewish and french.

ethnic August 8, 2009 at 5:08 pm

Hey Epic, He’s able to speak French but I havent sen any site stating that he is of French origin.

He has such an interesting look. I’m really dying to know what his ethnic background is, but there seems to be no information of ethnicity on the internet.

ethnic August 2, 2009 at 6:02 pm

Angie, thanks for the comment. It says above that he is a Jewish American.
