What did Julianne Moore think of her Don Jon director/costar Joseph Gordon-Levitt the first time she met him? The answer may surprise you. I sat down with Moore to discuss what it was like working with the "very muscular" Gordon-Levitt on his film about a man whose porn addiction is interfering with his relationship with a new girlfriend (Scarlett Johansson). Moore, who plays Don Jon's quirky classmate, spilled on his directing style, how much porn is actually in the movie, and whether her kids will ever see Don Jon.
POPSUGAR: How did you get involved in the project?
Julianne Moore: I was reading the scripts that were submitted to me while on a plane, and I read it and it really surprised me. I didn't know where it was going and it was very, very funny and ultimately extremely touching. Then I spoke to [Gordon-Levitt] on the phone and decided to do it.
PS: Had you met him before?
JM: No, we didn't know each other. It was a Skype; that was the first time we met.
PS: Were you surprised when you saw him in full Don Jon mode?
JM: He came to my house to do a little rehearsal and he was very muscular and I was really surprised. He was like, "This is not my normal state of being," and I was like, "OK!"
