Joseph Gordon-Levitt On Zooey Deschanel: Dating Would Be 'Awkward'

It's no secret Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanal are close pals -- remember their adorable homemade singing video? While some fans would love nothing more than to see these "(500) Days of Summer" co-stars get together in real life, the "Dark Knight Rises" actor told Playboy he thinks the idea is just...weird.

It’s awkward when people say that. Whatever. Zooey and I just think it’s funny. It is funny. We’ve been friends for 10 years. She loves movies, music and art, and she’s incredibly knowledgeable about that stuff. She’s turned me on to so many good movies and so much good music. It’s fun just to have conversations, watch movies with her and stuff like that.

We guess we shouldn't be so surprised, considering Deschanel -- who split from husband Ben Gibbard last fall -- has recently been spotted kissing new boyfriend Jamie Linden.

So there you have it -- no JGL/Deschanel real-life romance is in the works. If you need us, we'll be watching "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here" and "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" on repeat.
