Hard to believe he’s 47, and gawd did I have a crush on this guy when I was a little girl. Lowe’s first film appearance was in the role of Sodapop Curtis in The Outsiders, alongside the then-unknown Tom Cruise (no comment). He went on to star in a slew of 80s films: Oxford Blues, Youngblood, About Last Night with Demi Moore, and as the never-do-well Billy Hixx in St. Elmo’s Fire (1985), for which he won the Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor. Go Rob!

The 90s ushered in a career decline for Lowe, dropping from A-list to B-list, with such forgettable films as Bad Influence, and a number of cameo, bit and uncredited roles in films like Mulholland Falls, Tommy Boy, and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.

Back on top with the role of Sam Seaborn from 1999 to 2006 in the long-running series The West Wing, Lowe is finally all grown up, married, and has two sons with his wife Sheryl. Lowe is an active supporter for breast cancer awareness. Both his grandmother and great-grandmother suffered with the disease and his mom died of it in 2003. In 2000, Lowe became the first male spokesperson for the Lee National Denim Day fundraiser, a cause which raises millions for breast cancer research.

From the Publisher
A wryly funny and surprisingly moving account of an extraordinary life lived almost entirely in the public eye

A teen idol at fifteen, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at twenty, and one of Hollywood’s top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences as a painfully misunderstood child actor in Ohio uprooted to the wild counterculture of mid-seventies Malibu, where he embarked on his unrelenting pursuit of a career in Hollywood.

The Outsiders placed Lowe at the birth of the modern youth movement in the entertainment industry. During his time on The West Wing, he witnessed the surreal nexus of show business and politics both on the set and in the actual White House. And in between are deft and humorous stories of the wild excesses that marked the eighties, leading to his quest for family and sobriety.

Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last twenty-five years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.
