Before you see him as tightrope walker Philippe Petit in the new Robert Zemeckis film, The Walk, look back on a time when we were first getting to know actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

He had shoulder-length hair and was best known as the shortest alien on the TV sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun. Oprah interviewed the intergalactic gang in 1997, and she asked young Joseph, "Do you feel your character mirrors some of your own pubescent situations?" Watch to find out how he described his nascent dating life.

The Walk opens in select cities Wednesday, September 30, followed by a wide release October 9.

Original airdate: February 28, 1997
