A teaser for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s new film "Don Jon," his directorial debut, has just been released and shows a sex-crazed Scarlett Johansson and Gordon-Levitt passionately kissing.
In the film, JGL’s title character is apparently addicted to porn while Johansson’s character, Barbara, has an unrealistic expectation of love based on romance movies.
Gordon-Levitt told the Huffington Post in March: “I thought the idea of a guy, who watches too much pornography, and a young woman, who watches too many romantic Hollywood movies, was a hilarious way to ask the question: How do the different kinds of media we consume impact our lives and our love lives?'”
The Internet Movie Database added to the description: “A New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love.”

Don Jon stands there stunned as she says, “Call me!” and then slams the door in his face.
Take a look at a clip of the two making out in her apartment doorway below:
