Rob Lowe

Actor & Activist


Born in Charlottesville, Virginia, and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Rob Lowe began his acting career at the age of eight in local television and theater. After his family relocated to Los Angeles, Lowe began his national acting career starring in the ABC television series A New Kind of Family.

A prolific television and film actor, Lowe has enjoyed starring roles on The West Wing (for which he received an Emmy nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award), Brothers & Sisters, and Parks & Recreation. His feature film debut came with Francis Ford Coppola's The Outsiders; Lowe later went on to star in such popular dramas as St. Elmo's Fire and About Last Night, and blockbuster comedies including Wayne's World, Tommy Boy, and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.

Off screen, Rob Lowe is a dedicated activist in the fight against cancer. With a family history of the disease – his grandmother and great grandmother both battled breast cancer and his father is a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor – Lowe works with such organizations as the Cancer Hope Network to raise awareness and emphasizes the importance of continued support for cancer survivors.

Lowe’s new book, Love Life, expands his scope, using stories and observations from his life in a poignant and humorous series of true tales about men and women, art and commerce, fathers and sons, addiction and recovery, and sex and love. He is the author of the memoir Stories I Only Tell My Friends, a funny, honest account of his rise to fame in Hollywood, and the fascinating people he met and situations he encountered along the way.
