Say what!? Joseph Gordon-Levitt has himself a secret girlfriend! The Don Jon actor revealed the news during an interview on SiriusXM's Howard Stern Show on Tuesday, Sept. 24. This marks the first time the 32-year-old has mentioned his love life in detail in public — ever!
"I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public," he told Stern during the sit-down. "She is not in show business."
The Dark Knight Rises star further explained why he's never spoken out before about the relationship. "I get up in movies and I play other people, so when the audience is watching me in movies, I don't want them thinking about me and who I'm dating, and blah blah blah," he said. "I want them to see the character, the story that I'm telling."
The couple met through "mutual friends," he said, but the actor wouldn't go into further detail. When asked if he's in love, the Looper actor replied, "Oh, jeez, man! Come on! This is getting private."
Indeed, keeping private is something his girlfriend would like to do as well. "The girl that I'm with, she really doesn't want to be a part of it," he said of staying out of the spotlight. "You can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny."
Oddly enough, the big reveal comes just two weeks after the Hollywood A-lister discussed the ever-present rumors about his sexuality to Out magazine. "That would be really tacky —- they would win if I had to clarify," he said at the time.
