Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Cut Graphic Sex Scenes From ‘Don Jon’s Addiction’ To Get An R Rating, Therefore Is A Butthole

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is enjoying rave reviews for his directorial debut, Don Jon’s Addiction. But it seems that he doesn’t want to spread that joy into the universe. What I mean is, JGL also stars in DJA as a porn-addicted man who starts a relationship with two different women as a means to distant himself from those videos where it looks like the daddy is hurting the mommy. The film also stars Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, and Tupac-homey, Tony Danza.

While speaking to press at the Berlin International Film Fest, Gordon-Levitt revealed he’ll trim down the pornography viewed in the film to secure an R-rating. ā€œI think it is important that those images are in there but what precisely you see isn’t that important. What’s important is the rhythm of the film, the repetition of what the Don Jon character does, over and over.ā€ Before adding, “Porn can get pretty gross.”

Trust him. He grew up in a culture of child actors. He knows the depths that porn can go to. (THR)
