At 32, the actor is now promoting his latest film ‘Don Jon’ which he has both written and directed. The movie is about a New jersey porn addict who struggles to make his reality meet the self-imposed expectations of his porn obsession. Of the project, in which he also stars, Gordon-Levitt noted…
“I was interested in making a movie about how people treat each other like things, and all kinds of media can contribute to that. 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.”
Over the years, as is the case with many male actors, there have been multiple rumours about his sexuality but, in the Out magazine profile, he refuses to give the gossip any credence., saying…
‘That would be really tacky—they would win if I had to clarify’
