The sit-down came in 1983 when Lowe was an up-and-coming 19-year-old actor, and he spoke with ET about what he felt was the secret to success.
"When you're still trying to find some sort of success, it's very important to be very serious," a teenage Lowe expounded. "But then, once you reach a certain level where you've done a few films, then it's a real trap if you start taking yourself too seriously."
Watching the footage of the decades-old interview, Lowe admitted that his younger self had some very good points.
"That kid knew what he was talking about!" Lowe said, adding that he was shocked at how closely he resembled his own sons -- Matthew, 26, and John, 24 -- when he was their age. "I'm just freaked out because it looks like it's one of my kids talking. It's freaky!"
Lowe and Pratt have remained close friends in the years since their beloved NBC sitcom came to an end, and the birthday boy couldn't have been more excited for the Jurassic World star for his recent engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger.
Lowe has been very outspoken about his adoration and affection for his sons, and the star weighed in on the recent college admissions scandal that's been rocking the nation, explaining that the drama hit a raw nerve because of how hard his kids, and kids across the country, work to go to school on their own merit.
