Pairs Division: Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt at the Don Jon Premiere

Posted on September 12, 2013

We just can’t put our finger on why, but these two make such an odd pairing to us. The first time we saw the trailer for this film we found it a little jarring. It’s like they don’t quite occupy the same celebrity world.

What can you say about two good-looking twenty-somethings dressed nicely, if a bit on the standard side? She’s still working that post-engagement glow, which makes us wonder if she’s not something of a Liz Taylor type. Sure, that’s a bit cynical of us, but she only ever seems to come off as a happy person when she’s in love. Just sayin’, is all. But yeah, she looks sexy and happy here, if not particularly stylish. Don’t really like the hair at all. She always seems to go for these pinned up do’s, which do nothing for her facial features.

He is serving JGL. It’s kind of his schtick now. If that sounds dismissive, it’s not meant to be. He’s got such a firmly established style – and at a really young age too – that there’s little left to say about it. We’ve seen more interesting suits and ties coming from him, but we certainly can’t find fault with anything he’s doing here.

We’d say they collectively rate about a 9/10. To be honest, that feels a little generous, given the lack of interest overall, but objectively, we just can’t look at the two of them and say they really look bad in any way. Serviceable style.
