When Joseph Gordon-Levitt told FVM he loved Aotearoa, he really wasn't joking.

The Hollywood star has been living in Wellington since October last year while filming his AppleTV+ series, Mr Corman.

And although he's been in lockdown like the rest of us, he finally managed to get out and about in the capital in level 2.5 - and sported a very special face mask at the same time.

He shared a snap of himself in the face mask featuring the hei tiki logo for this year's Te Wiki o te Reo Māori - Māori Language Week - which takes starts on Monday.


"This is my mask," he wrote to his 7 million Facebook followers.

"Now, please show me your mask."

Kiwi fans were quick to post their face mask selfies in the comments of his post, many appreciating the design of his mask and asking where they could get their own.


Last month the Emmy Award winner chatted to Fletch, Vaughan and Megan about his move to Aotearoa and his love for our country.

"I can't say enough good things about our time here in New Zealand," he said.

In fact, Gordon-Levitt says he "hit the roof" with excitement about the possibility of moving here. He and his wife Tasha McCauley had already been discussing New Zealand's response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
