Blu-ray | DVD Review: Don Jon

Don Jon is a great triumph for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut.

Gordon-Levitt, who also wrote the script and stars in the film, gave an honest portrayal of relationships and the unrealistic expectations of porn.

Don Jon follows Don (Gordon-Levitt), an old-fashioned guy who goes to church every week, goes to confession and spends quality time with his family. He also goes clubbing and takes home girls with no strings attached. However, things change once he sets his eyes on Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) and realizes that his old no strings attached mantra won’t work with her.

The film boasts a terrific cast, including Julianne Moore, who plays Esther, a woman Jon meets, Tony Danza, who plays his outspoken father and Brie Larson, whose character speaks volumes without really saying anything.

Gordon-Levitt’s directing is confident and shines through the film. Don Jon is genuine, edgy and in-your-face, but in the best way.

Julianne Moore: Allure Magazine November 2010

Julianne Moore looks stunning in the November issue of Allure magazine. Here’s what the 49-year-old actress shared:

On having to stay out of the sun: ”I have what I call ‘my outfit’, I wear a long-sleeved rash guard and a pair of board shorts. It’s not so sexy, but I keep myself covered. My husband hates it. But if you ever see me at a water park, that’s what I’ll be wearing.”

On getting older: ”I’m always shocked by people who talk about not being middle-aged, I’m like, ‘How old do you think you’re going to live? Let’s double your age and see where you get.’ People are always like, ‘Thirty-five is not middle-aged.’ I’m like, ‘Double it.’”

On finding herself modeling at age 50: ”I like to call myself the hundred-year-old model.”

On plastic surgery: ”I don’t believe it makes people look better. I think it just makes them look like they had something done to their face, and I don’t think we find that instinctually appealing.”

On kissing men vs. women: ”I don’t really think it’s different kissing a woman vs. a man. I don’t think it really is. The difference is kissing someone you know versus someone you don’t.”

NYGossipGirl Exclusive Interview: Julianne Moore

NYGossipGirl recently caught up with Julianne Moore at the premiere of her new film The Kids Are All Right. Here’s what the lovely 49-year-old actress dished about:

NYGG: How was it working on this movie?

Moore: Terrific. [Director] Lisa Cholodenko is just great and is someone that I just admire and I’m excited to finally do something with her. It was a long time coming, it was 5 years, so we’re so happy to finally see it come to life.

NYGG: Do you feel like you and Annette [Bening] captured the spirit of the characters?

Moore: I certainly hope so. That was our goal. Both of us have been married for a long time, we’re parents. I mean, it was an absolute pleasure to do.

NYGG: You’ve been in so many films, but what’s it like working on a movie that’s filmed in 23 days, which this was?

[Laughs] No one really likes to work that fast, it’s not a thrill, but it’s a necessity. When you have a budget that’s limited, you have limited time. You know what, you do what ever you can. You work with whatever you have.

Julianne Moore: T Magazine Lovely

A Single Man star Julianne Moore covers the Spring 2010 issue of T Magazine. Here’s what the 49-year-old has to say:

On designer and A Single Man director Tom Ford:

I met him in 1998, right after my son was born. Tom made a dress for me for the Oscars, the first time I was nominated, for Boogie Nights. Tom was unbelievably charming and handsome and normal, not scary, which surprised me because he was one of the first designers I’d ever met. He made me a really beautiful black chiffon dress that kind of had an empire waist. Because I’d just had a baby, my boobs were really big. I didn’t feel confident enough to wear it. But Tom was incredibly gracious. He said, “I don’t care — wear it, don’t wear it — it’s just a dress,’ ” And that was the beginning of my friendship with Tom.

On nudity and if her children watch her movies:

No. My children don’t watch my movies. First of all, they’re not interested and, secondly, my movies are not for children. As an actor, you’re trying to portray the human condition and sometimes we don’t wear clothes. I made a movie called Chloe and there’s a great deal of sexual material in it. The director, Atom Egoyan, said: “You know, people do this. And when they do it, they’re usually nude.”
