Sorry, Joseph Gordon-Levitt fans! The 32-year-old star has revealed that he has a girlfriend.
The Don Jon star and director opened up for the first time about his girlfriend in an interview on SiriusXM's "The Howard Stern Show" yesterday. Stern asked Gordon-Levitt if he was in a relationship and he confirmed that he does indeed have a girlfriend.
However, he would not reveal much about her, not giving out her name or even how long they have been together.
"I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public. She is not in show business," Gordon-Levitt said in the interview. "The girl I'm with, she really doesn't want to be part of it. You can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny."
Gordon-Levitt did tell Stern that he and his girlfriend met through “mutual friends” but he shied away from the topic once he was asked if he was in love with her.
He later spoke about the reasons why he wants to keep his personal life out of the tabloids, stating that they were also for professional reasons.
"I get up in movies and I play other people, so when the audience is watching me in movies, I don't want them thinking about me and who I'm dating," he told Stern. "I want them to see the character, the story that I'm telling, you know."
He would reveal no other details about his girlfriend for the rest of the interview out of respect for her, adding that she might not want details of their relationship made public.
Last month, Gordon-Levitt sort-of-but-not-really addressed the rumors that he might be gay in an interview with Out Magazine. He would not confirm the rumors nor would he deny.
“That would be really tacky—they would win if I had to clarify,” he told the magazine.
