Yesterday, September 12, 2013, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, and Tony Danza attended the New York City premiere of their movie, "Don Jon," which hits theaters Friday, September 27. The spectacular event was held at SVA Theater.
The celebrities looked mighty spiffy strutting down the red carpet. Johansson wore a Roland Mouret dress in a sea foam hue and looked radiant. She is one of the very few stars who looks even better in person than on screen. Maybe Johansson looked especially good because of her happiness about her recent engagement to Romain Duriac. The art deco style ring is huge.
Julianne Moore dazzled in a Jason Wu black cutout dress with her signature red hair done up in an updo. Her Fred Leighton jewelry sparkled almost as much as her. How fitting (pun intended) that the two A-list actresses looked glam on the last official day of Fashion Week 2013.
The men looked all kinds of hot, too. Wasn't it Billy Crystal who used to say on Saturday Night Live, "You look maaahhhvelous,"? Well, the cast of “Don Jon” sure looked marvelous.
"Don Jon" was written and directed by Gordon-Levitt, who also stars as Jon Martello. The character got the casanova nickname because he charms the ladies and dates a new one every weekend.
Pitiably, he finds his favorite women when he’s watching them on a screen showing porn. Then along comes Barbara Sugarman (Johansson) and va-va-voom, she gets his attention. The trouble is they both have ideas of how their perfect mate should be. He wants to feel about a 3D-woman the way he feels about his fantasized mate. Barbara’s obstacle is that she has seen way too many love stories on film and has an ideal that no man could ever live up to.
Gordon-Levitt gave great answers about the film at yesterday’s press conference. Check out some great pix and the accompanying quotes by clicking on the photo above.
“Don Jon” opens in New York City theaters on September 27, 2013. Comedy drama. Rated R. 90 minutes.
