‘Don Jon’ oversexed, and racist too?
|Follow j. on||and|
Apparently lots and lots of sex isn’t the most potentially offensive thing about Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s latest film, “Don Jon.”
The Italian American One Voice Coalition has accused the Jewish actor-director of promoting “racist stereotypes” in the movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
In “Don Jon,” Gordon-Levitt plays Jon Martello, a “Jersey Shore”-esque porn addict who falls for a Jewish (and also very Jersey-fied) chick named Barbara Sugarman, played by Scarlett Johansson, who really is Jewish.
In other celebrity news, a photo taken last week of “Apprentice” judge Ivanka Trump wearing a “skirted power suit” and a hat was deconstructed by the Daily Mail, in a piece about her maternity style. Guesses were made as to where Trump, who is eight months pregnant, was headed as she walked the streets of Manhattan with hubbie Jared Kushner and their 2-year-old daughter, Arabella Rose.
“The trio looked off for an important lunch or perhaps a meeting with her father, Donald Trump, who is known for dressing up daily in grey suits and pink ties,” the story said.
Perhaps, but we have another theory: The glam fam was shul-bound!
The evidence is strong. It was Shemini Atzeret, so it seems highly likely the Upper East Side dwellers were going to Kehilath Jeshurun on East 85th Street, where Trump converted prior to the couple’s wedding. Plus, it isn’t the first time the Trump-Kushners have been photographed on their way to synagogue.
If we’re correct, surely Trump’s hat, which the Daily Mail called a “’60s-era fashion statement that looks like something Holly Golightly would have worn,” is not merely a fashion statement but a hair-covering device, too. — jta
