Joseph Gordon Levitt was nervous about shaving head for ‘50/50’

Will you be seeing it?

‘Inception’ star Joseph Gordon Levitt said that it was nerve racking when he had to shave his head in front of the camera for his new film ‘50/50

Levitt is playing a young man who is diagnosed with cancer in his new film and in one of the scenes his character decides to shave his head.  Joseph said that shaving his real hair off made him exceptionally nervous because if he didn’t get it right, there were no retakes.  Levitt explains;

“Normally when you’re making a movie, if something doesn’t go right, you can do it again., but when you’re shaving your head for real, you can’t just go and do that again. There was an added thrill to that but it was nerve-wracking at the same time. I was terrified of messing up.”

50/50’ stars Joseph Gordon Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick and Anjelica Houston and is due out in theaters on September 30.
