The Voice coach recently split up with his girlfriend, model Anne Vyalitsyna, and Love Hewitt later revealed that she would like to date him as they would be "cute" together.
Love Hewitt then joked: "Let's see if he comes a-knocking" but has also admitted that she is embarrassed by the attention her comments received.
Levine has now responded to the remarks, telling Access Hollywood that they were "very, very flattering".
"It's very flattering and very sweet and it was lovely to hear," he said. "But I'm not going to let it get to my head!"
Recent reports have suggested that Levine is "heartbroken" about his split from Vyalitsyna.
