It's clear Joseph is following in his dad's footsteps, keeping up with his fitness and even starting an acting career just like Arnold. But one thing is for sure, he isn't letting outside noise hold any weight.

"I think with anyone that's had a high-succeeding parent, it's just going to be difficult," Joseph told E! News in April. "People always discredit them, say, 'You only got that because of your parents, you only got that because of X, Y and Z.' It's hard, but it's just something that you have to live with. Know within yourself that if you're putting in the work and you're actually doing it, then none of that should matter."

Every now and then, Joseph, whose mom is Mildred Baena, can't help but catch a hateful comment on social media—something he admits can get under his skin.

"It was really bothering me that anytime I would get any kind of role or press, or I would post a physique picture on Instagram, I would always get comments of, 'You're only there because of your dad' or whatever," he recalled. "It bothered me at the time."

But Joseph has Arnold to turn to when it comes to navigating the waters of fame.

"For me, he's the smartest man alive," he gushed about The Expendables star, "and I look up to him so much, he's one of my greatest inspirations. But I love figuring things out on my ownคำพูดจาก สล็อต888. And, thankfully, I am mentally strong enough to not let the scrutiny get to me. It's always been a thing that I've heard, 'Don't pay attention to the comments, don't pay attention to what people are saying.' Most things are out of context."
