Joseph Gordon Levitt plays guy obsessed with naked ladies

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a guy obsessed with naked ladies in Don Jon, which he also wrote and directed.

A Jersey boy who cruises the clubs and also the Internet in search of sexual satisfaction, he's eventually torn between the perfect girl (Scarlett Johansson) and an older woman (Julianne Moore).

The 32-year-old US actor himself has a much more thoughtful and respectful approach to the fairer sex, as he reveals here...

ON CO-STAR SCARLETT JOHANSSON

"Look, Scarlett is a gorgeous, gorgeous woman, but if you just compare purely physical features, plenty of girls are just as gorgeous.

"But she creates this extra something. It's in her walk, her eye contact. The total package is just off the charts."

ON DON JON'S OBJECTIFICATION OF WOMEN

"It's about a guy that objectifies everything, especially women, but even his own body, his car, his apartment, his friends, his family, his church. Everything is an object at a distance, and has to live up to certain standards that he has."

ON WHAT HE HIMSELF LOOKS FOR IN A WOMAN

"I do my very best to not have any rigid expectations. I think the best, juiciest, mind-blowing love comes as a surprise. If you're already looking for the items on your wish list, you're doomed."

ON HIS REAL-LIFE MYSTERY GIRLFRIEND

"I have a girlfriend, but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public. She is not in show business.

"The girl that I'm with, she really doesn't want to be a part of that. You can imagine not wanting to have that scrutiny."
