Don Jon is losing his “addiction,” even though that may not be exactly what happens on screen.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has released a statement explaining that his Sundance drama Don Jon’s Addiction -- which is about to premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival – is dropping the word "Addiction" from its title and will now only be known as Don Jon. In explaining the trim, Gordon-Levitt (who wrote, directed and stars in the relationship dramedy) said:
This actually isn’t the first change that Gordon-Levitt has made for the film. He admitted earlier that he will have to trim out some of the more explicit on-screen sex to land an R-rating before the movie hits theaters - whenever that may be. We’ll continue to cover Don Jon as it works through the festival circuit, but above is a new still with JGL in character and his on-screen father, played by Tony Danza.
