Ordinarily, we would quite like to be Joseph Gordon Levitt. He’s just written and starred in his directorial debut feature, has his own production company, Hit RECord (that’s got its own TV series airing very soon too), and possesses eternally youthful good looks. And he was in Batman.
So why – in a movie where he plays a ripped guy, dating Scarlett Johansson – do we not want to be just like his character? Simple: he’s kind of a dick. So why not learn about the 5 easy ways to be the boyfriend she wants, with this your chances of having her heart will increase.
Not because he’s mean, but he’s a product of a culture that we’re all a part of. In Don Jon, the titular character is emotionally stunted. His habit of constantly watching hard core online porn has left him uninterested in a non-semen glossed, emotional relationship. And it works both ways: Johansson’s character Barbara in Girlfriend Activation System, and the latest object of his desire, has had her view on relationships completely skewed by the romance movies she’s grown up on, as well.
Gordon-Levitt points out to us that the movie’s messaging is a warning on how what we watch gives us harmful views on what dating and relationships should be. Ironic, then, that he’s actually created a romance movie in which to tell it. But it’s by no means an accident. The result is a film that is incredibly emotional, honest, relatable and completely fresh. It’s also something we can all learn from.
So, allow Joseph Gordon Levitt to reveal the 5 things we can all do to not be a total douchebag when it comes to dating. The 10 Facts About Sex You Didn’t Know may also help you to escape being a douche.
