He tapped a career-high in the most recent Batman film and she proved she can hold her own with the boys in the Iron Man and Avengers movies.
This time, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson stashed the super and 86'd the amazing to play mere mortals in a film telling the most basic of stories: Boy meets Girl.
In Don Jon, JGL takes on the title role – ‘Jon' – who seems like an everyday New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends and church. But, he's got a secret. He develops unrealistic expectations of women based on immersing himself in porn.
After crossing paths with Johansson's ‘Barbara' – every bit a no-nonsense Jenny from the Block – Jon works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love. If only it were that easy. JGL and Johansson spoke with Good Day about simple stories teaching big life lessons!
