Sex Scenes Of Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon Levitt Almost Made ‘Don Jon’ Classified As Porn

Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have steamy scenes in the sexually themed "Don Jon." The movie was on a list of "porniest" movies this fall.

A list of films that narrowly avoided the NC-17 rating (prohibits anyone below 17 from entering theater) shows "Don Jon" at the top. "Don Jon" escaped with an R rating meaning Under 17 viewers need to be accompanied by an adult. The list released by The Hollywood Reporter describes the movies as "porniest."

"Don Jon" was previously titles "Don Jon's Addiction" in the Sundance Film Festival. It was tamed down for its theatrical release. Yet, the theme is still sexual, so there are love scenes between the lead actors Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. They chat about it with Uinterview.com

" What was the secret to shooting the steamy love scenes in this film?  SJ: Well, you know, the scenes are are really choreographed, like pretty heavily choreographed, because it's important how Barbara uses her body and how these two characters connect and then they kind of disconnect and the sort of dance between them. There were very specific points that had to be hit so that can take the magic out of it a little bit. But, you know, we kept it pretty steamy. You got to kind of, you got to commit to it. After the first couple of takes, it was like, 'Okay, this is going to be good, I think. We got something here. We've got something here.' Just ignore the 70 crew members eating pastrami sandwiches standing around you and try to stay in the moment, keep it fresh."

 "What was the most memorable moment on set for both of you? SJ: I think it's hard to pinpoint a specific moment, but I think really from the very first conversation that Joe and I had about this project, we were talking about the film's themes and led in to this conversation about relationships and how we are in relationships and what we expect from our partner and our experiences. It was a very intimate conversation right off the bat, and I felt that there was this kind of groundwork for this kind of trust between us. That's just a fond memory that I have, is really the first time that we met. I was so intrigued about what this project would be that he hadn't left the house before I started reading the script. I think I emailed him 20 minutes later practically, after I finished it."
