CATEGORIES Movie NewsCan the world possibly be more in love with Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Why, yes -- yes, they can. Just watch the trailer for his directorial debut, "Don Jon."
The ever-charming JGL himself introduces the trailer "I'm really proud of it," he says with a crinkly-cute smile. "I hope you like it."
His character, "Don Jon" Martello, declares, "There's only a few things I really care about in life: my body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, and my porn." We see cuts of him GCLing (gym, clean, laundry) and living a regular life until he meets The Girl -- Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), "the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life."
But their love story has one major complication: Jon's addiction to porn.
"Movies and porno are different, Jon. They give awards for movies!" Barbara screams after finding him "checking his email."
"They give awards for porn, too!" he replies.
"Don Jon," which received rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, also stars Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, and Brie Larson (with cameos by Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway in a movie-within-the-movie).
Fall in love with JGL all over again when the movie fist-bumps theaters October 18.
