Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Transformation From Alien to Hot Heartthrob

Feb 17 2014 - 5:06pm

Today marks Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 33rd birthday and yet another year of swooning over the gorgeous actor. But it wasn't always this way — back in the '90s, when he started his career as an alien on 3rd Rock From the Sun, no one would have guessed that he would later transform into one of Hollywood's biggest heartthrobs. Through the years, JGL has donned many looks for roles and in real life, including a bulked-up New Jersey sex addict [1] and a goofy-faced lip-syncer [2], and we're rounding them all up below. Happy birthday, JGL!
