In a recent interview with OUT magazine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt refused to address the rumors that he might be gay. “That would be really tacky,” he said, when asked why he’s never set the record straight. “[The media] would win if I had to clarify.”

It’s been less than two weeks since the interview was released and it seems like JGL’s already whistling a different tune.

On a September 24 appearance on the Howard Stern Show, the Don Jon actor revealed he’s got a special lady in his life!

“I have a girlfriend, but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,” he divulged. “She is not in show business.”

The 32-year-old refused to identify his girlfriend, nor would be confirm how long they’ve been together. “The girl that I’m with, she really doesn’t want to be a part of [the spotlight]. You can imagine not wanting that kind of scrutiny.”

Joseph’s always kept quiet about his personal life and has spoken out against paparazzi following his every move. When asked why he’s uncomfortable discussing his love life, Joe explained: “I get up in movies and I play other people, so when the audience is watching me in movies, I don’t want them thinking about me and who I’m dating. I want them to see the character, the story that I’m telling.”

We certainly can’t blame the guy for wanting to keep his romance on the QT, but that doesn’t mean we’re any less heartbroken by the news!
