Like grandfather, like grandson!

Bob Dylan's grandson Levi is quickly making a name for himself -- but not if he can help it. The 22-year-old opens up about fame in a new spread for VMAN magazine.

"I get labeled as a model but, if I had it my way, I would hope nobody would ever call me that," says Levi, who walked the runway during Dolce & Gabbana's Fall/Winter 2017 show at Milan Fashion Week earlier this month. "I don’t even know how I fit into the whole thing."

After following in his famous grandfather's footsteps with a short music career -- "nobody wants to listen to rock and roll anymore" -- Levi is now transitioning to a career in acting, though still maintains his grandpa's rejection of the mainstream.

"I don't have any interest in being in Warner Brothers' newest comedy if it's going to suck but still be a box office hit and make me famous," says Levi. "I want to do things that are cool and that I can be proud of."

"I don't know that I have a favorite actor, but I will say that I'm inspired by Dennis Hopper," he adds.

With a Netflix project in the works and a movie being filmed later this year, it won't be long before we find out what Levi's future holds. See more on Levi in the video below.
