Joseph Gordon-Levitt: 'Don Jon's Addiction is my idea of a love story'

By
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has suggested that his directorial debut Don Jon's Addiction is his version of a traditional love story.

Don Jon's Addiction stars Gordon-Levitt as a porn-addicted man whose life is turned upside down when he begins learning about love from two women (Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore).

Speaking to The AP, Gordon-Levitt opened up about how Don Jon's Addiction explores love.

"I wanted to tell a love story, and in my observations, what gets in the way of love often times is the way the people objectify each other," the actor explained.

He continued: "The story centres on a relationship between a boy and a girl, and the boy watches too much pornography, and the girl watches too many romantic Hollywood movies, and they're both sort of objectifying each other."

Don Jon's Addiction also stars Julianne Moore, Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza and Brie Larson.

The film was recently picked up by Relativity Media at the Sundance Film Festival.
