Joseph Gordon-Levitt Flexes Muscles in ‘Don Jon’ Trailer
Joseph Gordon-Levitt embodies the guido in his directorial debut, ‘Don Jon’.
In ‘Don Jon’, now playing in theaters, Gordon-Levitt casts himself in the title role — a p0rn-addicted muscle boy. When he meets the woman of his dreams (Scarlett Johansson), she catches him watching p0rn in his computer and is so disgusted she walks out of his life.
What spawned the project was Gordon-Levitt’s interest in telling a story about how people objectify each other. He spent months in the gym shaping his body into a lean, mean, loving machine.
“When I started writing the script, I was trying to think of who is a contemporary of Don Juan. That would be an East Coast womanizer who spends most of his time creating this perfect gym body,” Gordon-Levitt says.
