Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Yes, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is officially taken, the actor himself confirmed Tuesday during an interview with Howard Stern on his radio show on SiriusXM.
Gordon-Levitt said, “I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public. She is not in show business.”
The “Don Jon” star refused to give out further details like the lucky girl’s name or how long they have been seeing each other, but he revealed that they have met through “mutual friends.”
The 32-year-old actor shied away when Stern asked if he’s in love, stressing that the conversation is “getting private.”
The “Inception” actor also said that he likes to keep his private life away from the spotlight because, since he is an actor, he wants the people to see the character and story he is telling rather than making them think about what’s happening in his life.
Furthermore, Gordon-Levitt is thankful that his anonymous girlfriend is a private person as well. He said, “The girl that I’m with, she really doesn’t want to be a part of it. You can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny.”
Meanwhile, his latest film, “Don Jon,” is a comedy depicting a modern-day Don Juan. The film, written and directed by Gordon-Levitt, who also plays the main character, Benjamin Cullen, is produced by Ram Bergman and Nicholas Carter. It is set for release on September 27.
