Joseph Gordon-Levitt On Sexuality And Pornography: There’s More To Women Than “Sex Images”
submit to reddit

On Tuesday, Season 10 of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight rolls on with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. His directorial debut is called Don Jon and it stars Joseph and Scarlett Johansson in a tale of love in the internet age.

When George asked Joseph Gordon-Levitt about themes of sexuality and pornography in Don Jon he showed a post from Joseph's mother's blog about how women are sexually objectified in advertisements. Joseph then described how he learned to think critically from his parents:

"My mom and dad are very much people who were active in the '60s and '70s in feminist movements as well as civil rights or anti-war movements," he said. "And I think they raised my brother and me to have some of those values and to think of women not just as sex images -- even though lots of images in the media are constantly saying that. Certainly not just pornography, perfectly mainstream images."

Gordon-Levitt has also been using his "open collaborative production company" hitRECord to bring filmmakers together online.

Also on the episode, The Panel features the very funny Jason Jones, a regular correspondent on The Daily Show. Watch it Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 7 pm.
