'I Never Wanted To Shock People'
Austin, Texas — First, he agreed to cut some of the graphic sex scenes. Now, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is trimming the title of his directorial debut.

His racy comedy, originally called "Don Jon's Addiction," has been streamlined to just "Don Jon."

Outside its screening at the South by Southwest film festival Monday night, Gordon-Levitt said he altered the name because some people mistakenly believed the film is about sex or porn addiction.

"I called it `Don Jon's Addiction' because there's this central symbol in the movie of this rut and this habit that Jon is in," said Gordon-Levitt, who also stars in the film. "It's about a guy getting out of this rut, learning to be present and have more engaged and realistic relationships."
