Gordon-Levitt wasn’t lucky with love

There is no doubt that Gordon-Levitt has found his soulmate with McCauley. However, before meeting his current wife, Gordon-Levitt said that he had a rough time with love.

The star said that he would use writing stories, shooting videos, and singing as coping mechanisms. For Gordon-Levitt, creativity was a healing thing, and to be surrounded by fellow creatives helped get him through the rough patches that love had put him through.

One failed romance, in particular, left the Project Power star so heartbroken that he even wrote a book about how to break up and heal.

Gordon-Levitt admits that a huge aspect of the book might be humorous, but it genuinely showcases several aspects of pain and what it means to break up with someone you’ve loved for a long time. Through the book, Gordon-Levitt offers his tried-and-tested methods of overcoming heartache by helping his readers delve into their creative selves as a form of healing.
