Update: GQ released a statement Wednesday in response to Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s claims that the mag hadn’t fact-checked his brother’s cause of death: “The magazine stands by its reporting, the facts of which are fully supported—and have been confirmed in detail—by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is furious with GQ magazine, on whose cover he appears this month.
