Two weeks after refusing to deny "tacky" gay rumors in Out magazine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt announced he has a girlfriend on the Howard Stern Show. Oh, her name? He can’t tell you that. “I tend not to talk about it in public,” he said, of his girlfriend. “She’s not in show business.” They met through "mutual friends." (Camp friends, who live in Canada.) “The girl that I am with, she really doesn’t want any part of it,” Gordon-Levitt continued, of the public interest in his girlfriend's identity. “You can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny.” Asked if he is in love with the woman who is his girlfriend, Gordon-Levitt said, "Oh, jeez, man! Come on! This is getting private."
