Los Angeles: `Dark Knight Rises` star Joseph Gordon-Levitt has revealed that he is dating someone who is not in show business.

The actor said he met his girlfriend via mutual friends, reported Aceshowbiz.

"I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public. She is not in show business," the 32-year-old actor added without mentioning her name or how long they had been seeing each other.

"I get up in movies and I play other people, so when the audience is watching me in movies, I don`t want them thinking about me and who I`m dating, and blah blah blah. I want them to see the character, the story that I`m telling," he added.

Gordon-Levitt`s girlfriend apparently wants to avoid the spotlight.

"The girl that I`m with, she really doesn`t want to be a part of it and you can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny. I think I`m a pretty good person and a good boyfriend. Yeah, I just wouldn`t want to be with someone who was disrespectful to me," he added.
