Don Jon is losing his 'addiction,' even though that may not be exactly what happens on screen. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has released a statement explaining that his Sundance drama Don Jon's Addiction -- which is about to premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival -- is dropping the word "Addiction" from its title and will now only be known as Don Jon. In explaining the trim, Gordon-Levitt (who wrote, directed and stars in the relationship dramedy) said: "I decided to change it, first of all, because Don Jon is just so short and simple, and if you know me, you know I'm a fan of brevity. Second of all, it felt to me like the old title, Don Jon's Addiction was throwing some people off a bit from the point of the movie. People were assuming it was a film about porn addiction and sex addiction, which really isn't true. »
