Los Angeles - Joseph Gordon-Levitt thinks Hollywood movies are like porn.

The Don Jon filmmaker believes both adult movies and big budget blockbusters project "unrealistic expectations" of relationships, and wanted his new film - about a porn-addicted womaniser - to make the comparison.

Speaking of both industries, he said, "I think they're both very similar. They both create equally unrealistic expectations and desires towards the opposite sex. So, it's a comparison I very intentionally wanted to make."

While the actor - who plays the title role in the movie, which also marks his directorial debut - confesses to watching porn, he says he is more influenced by "romantic movies" in his own personal life.

He told heat magazine, "I certainly don't watch porn like the character does. I won't say I've never watched it. But, personally, I've been much more heavily influenced by romantic movies than pornography."
