Joseph Gordon-Levitt agrees to take porn out of porno film

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has agreed to cut most of the graphic sex scenes out of “Don Jon’s Addiction,” his film about a porn addict that just premiered at Sundance and will hit theaters this summer.

Gordon-Levitt’s film contains a lot of porn scenes, but he has agreed to cut most of them out to have the film qualify for an R rating, SlashFilm.com reports.

“Yes, we expect we have to do that and I’ll be getting started on it as soon as I get back,” Gordon-Levitt said at a press conference at the Berlin International Film Festival. “I think it is important that those images are in there but what precisely you see isn’t that important. What’s important is the rhythm of the film, the repetition of what the Don Jon character does, over and over.”

The film, Gordon-Levitt, stars himself as well as Scarlett Johansson, and although the film is primarily about porn, he stressed that it about an “actual love story.”
