On November 22, 1963 President John F Kennedy was assassinated, and 50 years later Rob Lowe will be playing 35th President in NatGeo’s Killing Kennedy. The first photo of him in the role of a lifetime was released today, and he looks the part. So much so that if his friend JFK, Jr. was alive today, he would be proud of Lowe.
The two hour movie, that’s set to air in November, is based on Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s book Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot.
Rob Lowe Tweeted this “Selfie at sea” and finally someone got it right. The ageless actor looks so sexy lying their in that hammock and that is what a selfie should be. Not standing there in your bathroom doing a duck face.
Rob Lowe is a guest on The Late Late Show tonight at 12:37a and Craig Ferguson realized that he actually had seen the Youngblood star before, like way before. Back in the ’80s the CBS host was working as a doorman at a late night club in Manhattan called Save the Robots, and Lowe came to check out the club. The Brat Pack leader was so intrigued by Ferguson’s old job that he had to know more. So Lowe asked, “Who was the biggest a$$hole to ever come into Save the Robots?” Craig said he couldn’t tell him, but Lowe insisted before he realized that he was the person he so wanted to know about. And boy was Rob literally embarrassed, but I think Craig was just playing with him because I doubt a man with those eyes could ever be an a-hole!
Molly Ringwald sat down with Vulture to talk about her new jazz album and they asked her about two of projects that dealt with teen pregnancy. She admitted she doesn’t like that the final products for For Keeps and The Secret Life of American Teenager are glamorizing teen pregnancy.
It’s funny, last night I did a story for the organization the Moth in Santa Barbara — I got home at 3:30 in the morning, so I’m a little foggy today [laughs] — but I actually talked about the movie that I did, For Keeps, in that, because I feel like it glamorized teen pregnancy. And the original script that I’d agreed to do did not. But whenever you do a movie, whenever you do anything, it’s a collaborative effort, and sometimes the script that you agree to do turns into something else. And I was pretty much a teenager at the time, and it was this runaway train that I didn’t know how to stop. And so I was very unhappy about that, and I felt like the movie was, I won’t say unfairly criticized, because I agreed. I really did feel like it glamorized teen pregnancy. And then I did this series, and in the beginning I didn’t feel like the series glamorized teen pregnancy, but then I felt like it ended up doing the same thing. So I feel like I have yet to be involved in a project that shows what it’s really like. They always seem to end up glamorizing it. And I guess when you have a movie star playing the teenager, it’s a temptation to make them look like a young movie star — I did it, and then Shailene [Woodley]. But, yeah, I feel like, unfortunately, both of them do kind of glamorize teen pregnancy.
I have to say that I so agree with her about Secret Life, but I don’t think For Keeps glamorized it. I fell that film showed the struggles of being a teen mom more realistically than most. When it comes to Secret Life, the show makes it seem like teens can live as an adults and yet still have their teenage lives. It started out as positive, but became a show full of bad messaging on all fronts. I wonder if this why we have barely seen Ringwald on the ABC Family in recent years. If it is, I wouldn’t blame her.
Judd Nelson was seen at LAX and the 52 year Brat Packer was looking a little different than he did when we got to know him in the ’80s. Not that he looks bad, but his hair is a little fuller and he is sporting a goatee. A little haircut and a shave and we will have our John Bender back!
Imagine a world where one of the worst students in movie history became the principal of another school in a film. Well that world is a reality because Judd Nelson is playing a principal in the movie Bad Kids Go To Hell that looks a lot like a horror version of The Breakfast Club. I am not sure what this movie is really about, but for some reason I really want to see it.
Andrew McCarthy Tweeted the above picture and said, “Holy sh*t, my high school prom date just sent me this photo from the big night. Let’s see yours.” And all I could think is 6 years before Blane took Andie to the prom in Pretty In Pink, his real life prom date was also pretty in pink.
Well that and what is up with his hair? Seriously even as teenager he was so freaking cute. Seriously don’t you wish the boys you went to high school looked as good as he did?
Tonight at 8p on The Sundance Channel’s The Mortified Sessions two of the ’80s biggest teen movies stars Anthony Michael Hall and Lea Thompson are going to share mortifying stories from their teenage years when the cameras weren’t rolling. We all went through our awkward teenage years, but did you ever wonder if celebrities also did. Well they did and they are telling their tales and showing pictures of it on this Sundance Channel show. Each week two celebrities like Sixteen Candle’s Geek and Howard the Duck’s rocker will share intimate stories from their youth. For example did you know that Eric Stonestreet has been dressing up as Fizbo the Clown since he was in high school? It is interesting tidbits like that one that make this show a must add to your weekly lineup, so start watching the show tonight at 8p.
The Simpsons is in its 23rd season and the show still makes me laugh! On Sunday’s (yes I am behind on my viewing) Superintendent Chalmers was in charge of The Breakfast Club and he went into the wrong room. That brilliant little flashback gives new meaning to “Just me. Just you and me. Two hits. Me hitting you. You hitting the floor. Anytime you’re ready, pal” and I am OK with that! C’mon admit you can’t stop watching it, just like you can’t watch stop watching the coming of age John Hughes movie we all aspired to be at least one of the characters! Who did you want to be?
In 1989 we watched as Rob Lowe found his Snow White at the Oscars, now we can see him as he finds his Cinderella! Well technically he found his wife Sheryl long before these sweet pictures of him putting that glass slipper on his princess. But since I know I am not the only lady who wishes he was putting that shoe on her foot, I had to share those pictures with you?
Seriously Sheryl is a very lucky woman!!! And I am sure that their hunky sons Matthew Edward, 18 and John Owen, 15 will make their future princesses as happy as Rob makes their mom!
