Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Lincoln was no saint

Nov 16 2012, 4:03am CST | by

Joseph Gordon-Levitt appreciates the fact Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' doesn't portray the US President as a ''saint''.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is glad 'Lincoln' doesn't portray the former US President as a ''saint''.
The 'Inception' star plays Abraham Lincoln's son Robert in Steven Spielberg's upcoming biopic and is pleased the character of Lincoln, played by Daniel Day Lewis, has his ''personal flaws'' shared with the audience.
He explained: ''I like that this movie doesn't turn Lincoln into a saint. What he accomplished in abolishing slavery was a truly great thing; but this movie also shows the compromises he had to make, the things that he had to do that were questionable in order to accomplish that goal.
''History is made by human beings and I like that this story portrays Lincoln as a human being with personal flaws and hypocrisies as well as real strengths and virtues.''
Joseph, 31, thought Steven was the ''perfect'' person to take on the job since he is so passionate and praised the director's choice of focus for the film, which recounts the iconic President's final months in office rather than following him from birth to death.
He added to FlicksandBits.com: ''I think it's an incredibly profound and compelling image of this moment in history. Steven Spielberg has a unique way of diving into the American zeitgeist and reflecting it in cinematic form.
''And obviously, the story of Abraham Lincoln is a prominent story in American culture. I think he's the perfect guy to do it and he was clearly enjoying it, he was so in his element. It was fun to see a director having so much fun, it doesn't always happen that way.''
