If you were gunning for the amazing Joseph Gordon-Levitt to be single…you are about to be disappointed as f*ck.
JGL recently stopped by the Howard Stern Show this past Tuesday and confessed that he was already in a relationship with someone special:
“I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,”the Don Jon star said“She is not in show business.”
JGL would neither disclose his girlfriend’s identify or how long they had been together, but he did say that they had met through “mutual friends” (E! News). When questioned on whether he was in love or not, JGL saw fit to dodge the question:
“Oh, jeez, man! Come on! This is getting private.”
He later elaborated on why he had kept (and was still keeping) his relationship on the DL:
“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, and blah blah blah,”He commented“I want them to see the character, the story that I’m telling.”
He also appreciates the fact that the leading lady in his life doesn’t want to be in the spotlight either:
“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.”
Well, good for him for keeping the details of his relationship so ironclad and under-the-radar. Hollywood may be all glitzy and glamorous and alluring, but most celebrities can’t deny that it is hard as f*ck to maintain a stable (and functional) relationship in Tinseltown, even if it’s with a fellow celebrity who understands; talk less of someone who’s not in Tinseltown at all.
I applaud JGL for trying to preserve his privacy and I wish him the best.
