Did you hear that? That was the sound of thousands of hearts breaking when actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt let it slip that he has a secret girlfriend earlier this week.
During an interview on SiriusXM, the “Don Jon” star revealed to host Howard Stern that he is in a relationship with a mystery woman, although he refused to say how long they had been dating, or even her name.
“I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,” Gordon-Levitt said. He went on to explain that he likes to keep his personal life private.
“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,” he said.
And it sounds like his sweetheart doesn’t mind being out of the spotlight. “She really doesn’t want to be a part of it. You can imagine not wanting to have that scrutiny,” Gordon-Levitt said.
Earlier this month Gordon-Levitt refused to settle gay rumors in an interview with “Out” magazine, saying “That would be really tacky – they would win if I had to clarify,” but now he seems to have done just that.
Gordon-Levitt revealed he’s not sure if he’s ready to settle down yet.
“I like to not be too committed to any one future,” he said, but added “I think I could partner up with somebody. I don’t know who that somebody is.”
