"Will everyone stop thinking that dude is gay? Seriously guys. How immature is it of the media to perceive this guy - it has to be because of Brokeback [Mountain], right?" he told Out magazine.
"I've known this dude forever. He's one of my oldest friends, and it's very weird that they have this - it's very immature and infantile the way they treat his whole situation. If him hanging out with his bros means he's gay, it's like further perpetuating that weird homophobia that exists in our culture, which is just stupid."
Levine added: "So, yeah, he's my buddy. I f**kin' love the guy."
The 'Brokeback Mountain' star has previously insisted that he is "happy" about his status as a gay icon.
