AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — First, he agreed to cut some of the more-graphic sex scenes. Now, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is trimming the title of his directorial debut.
The racy comedy originally called "Don Jon's Addiction" has been streamlined to "Don Jon."
At the film's screening late Monday at the South by Southwest film festival, Gordon-Levitt said he altered the name because some people mistakenly thought it was about porn addiction.
Though pornography plays a key role, Gordon-Levitt said "it's just a symbol."
He directs and stars in the story of a modern-day Don Juan, a New Jersey lady's man who prefers porn to actual sex — even though he's having no shortage of the real thing.
Gordon-Levitt also plans to remove some of the steamiest scenes to ensure the film maintains an "R'' rating.
