Joseph Gordon-Levitt says wife’s friend thought he was ‘10 or 11’ in “10 Things I Hate About You”: ‘I was 17!’

That's next-level baby face.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will never escape the baby-face allegations. The actor appeared on CBS Mornings to promote his new film, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, but was also questioned on his feelings about the 25th anniversary of 10 Things I Hate About You.

"I must be old," the actor exclaimed when asked how he felt about the impressive anniversary. Levitt filmed the iconic adolescent rom-com when he was a teenager but revealed that a friend of his wife thought he was pre-pubescent in the movie. "My wife was talking to her friend who was like, ‘Oh, Joe was so cute in that movie! What was he, like 10 or 11?’ I was 17!" The actor revealed to Mornings co-hosts Gayle King, Tony Dokoupil and Nate Burleson.

Gordon-Levitt also revealed how surreal it was to be starring opposite Eddie Murphy in the Beverly Hills Cop sequel after admiring the comedian since he was a kid.

"My older brother was a huge Eddie Murphy fan," the actor said. "Everything your older sibling likes takes on a certain mystique. It’s kind of not allowed. You understand it to a degree, but maybe you don’t understand all of it. You just get wrapped up in ‘My older brother is laughing at this thing.’ That’s what Eddie Murphy was for me."

Meeting a hero like Eddie Murphy can be disappointing, but Gordon-Levitt says the Oscar nominee was a delight to work with.

"He’s so iconic. I’ll tell you though, his vibe is very down to earth," he praised. "Some folks that are as successful as him kind of need to always prove who they are and how big they are. He’s not that way, in my experience. He’s kind of just chill."

Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F arrives on Netflix on July 3.
