Joseph Gordon-Levitt talks Don Jon title change

Exclusive: JGL on ditching his addiction…

In issue 211 of Total Film magazine - the cool issue - we bring you a plethora of incredible exclusives from the 10 coolest movies being made right now.

We focus on the hippest movies heading your way - including David O Russell's American Hustle, Anchorman 2 and Daniel Radcliffe's devil flick Horns - taking a close look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Don Jon.

Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad, we get the lowdown from JGL on his directorial debut.

You can read the full interview with Batman's buddy inside the issue, but for now, here's a cheeky extract from what he had to say about Don Jon Addiction's new - catchier - title.

"Well, first of all, it's just shorter and simpler! When it was titled Don Jon's Addiction, I always thought of that last word as a metaphor for something larger."

"But then people were taking it literally, saying 'So you made a movie about porn addiction?' Really, I didn't mean it that way. The Maltese Falcon is called The Maltese Falcon, but it isn't a movie about a bird. It's about something else."

Don Jon opens in the UK on the 15th of November.

For much more from JGL pick up the brand-new issue 211 of Total Film magazine, which is out now!

Inside the issue, you'll find coverage of the likes of RoboCop, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Gravity
, and more, plus Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Rudd. Seriously, you’re not going to want to miss this one…

      Oh, i thought you meant it was changed from 'Don Jon' to something else. I never knew it was once called 'Don Jon's addiction'.
