That’s the case in Don Jon, the new romantic comedy written and directed by the actor. In it, he plays Jon “Don Jon” Martello, a club-hopping gym rat who cares about “my body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls and my porn.”
That is, until he meets Barbara (a gum-chewing, leather jacket-wearing Scarlett Johansson), who’s obsessed with a different kind of guy-on-girl film – rom-coms.
