Joseph Gordon-Levitt has appeared in drag as a teenage girl for a new MTV show.

The 500 Days of Summer actor appears in a promo clip for ‘Todrick’, alongside out singer Todrick Hall.

The clip video shows Gordon-Levitt learning a routine and getting into character to make a campy drag music video with Hall.

The pair drag up to film the video which features teenage girls about their ex-boyfriends who unfollowed them on social media.

It includes the lyrics: “You think you’re cooler than us? You should do less think. You might be smarter but you’re balding and your breath stinks!

The clip also features a minor disaster – when the bed the Dark Knight star is standing on falls apart in the middle of a take.

Todrick says: “I cannot believe that this thing has broken… I’m literally freaking out that Joe is going to walk off set.

“But he doesn’t. He just gets back on the bed and starts jumping again.”

Gordon-Levitt welcomed a son with wife Tasha McCauley in August.

In 2013, the actor previously spoke about rumours about his sexuality, saying “it would be really tacky” for him to give gossip any attention.

He said: “That would be really tacky — they [paparazzi] would win if I had to clarify.”

He added: “I’ve been working as an actor since I was a little kid, and I’ve always been fascinated, and a little horrified, by the way people relate to images they see on screen.

“Sometimes I feel I am seen as a thing more than a person, and I don’t think that’s unique to actors. I think everyone is subject to that kind of pigeonholing.”
