Joseph Gordon-Levitt seems like one of the most fun guys in Hollywood, so it comes as no surprise that he is dating someone. What is surprising, though, is that he’s managed to keep who that person is a secret.
During an interview on SiriusXM’s “Howard Stern Show,” the “Don Jon” actor finally, finally opened up about his love life. Not only does he reveal he has a woman to come home to, but he also admits she isn’t a part of the Hollywood scene.
“I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,” he tells Stern. “She is not in show business.”
Gordon-Levitt elaborates, “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.”
As for why he’s never spoken about the relationships he’s been in in the past, Gordon-Levitt says he wants to keep his personal persona and film characters separate. Instead, he wants viewers to “see the character” instead of “thinking about me and who I’m dating.”
He did give up some details about his mystery girl, saying that they met through “mutual friends.” But when asked whether he’s in love, Gordon-Levitt ended the conversation. “Oh jeez, man! Come on!” he says. “This is getting private.”
