Back in 1989, Rob Lowe sang a really weird duet with Snow White. No one ever thought his career would jump the shark that badly again, and we were wrong. Today, Discovery released a promo for Shark Week starring the St Elmo’s Fire star, and I just don’t know what to make of it. It is so bizarre that I think if it were a few seconds longer, it would be the worst thing he has done for his career since sex tape. The movie, that is.
And yet after saying all of that, I kind of like it. It’s groovy enough for me to groove to. What do you think of it?
BTW Shark Week starts on at August 10th and you don’t want to miss it. I hear they will turn you into chum meat if you do.
Rob Lowe was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and the ABC late night host asked him about the some of the Tweets he Tweeted while visiting colleges with his sons. Can you believe he has kids that are old enough to go to college? Now back to the story, Lowe told Kimmel that he realizes now that isn’t half as much fun to be a Hollywood star at 20 as it is to be in a Frat. So the actor lives vicariously through his eldest son, Matthew, and hangs at his Frat House at Duke University. Of course Matthew’s friends are into it because let’s be real even though Lowe is 49 years old, he is still highly doable. Honestly, what college girl wouldn’t want to sit next to him on the couch and play Xbox. As long as he doesn’t do what he did in Atlanta during the Democratic convention, he is OK to hang there. Wait, did he say being a 20 year old Hollywood star isn’t as much fun as being a Fraternity brother? Has he not read his own enticing book?
Rob Lowe was a guest on a The Late Show and David Letterman asked him why he is leaving Parks & Recreation. At first, he tried not say why, but then he admitted, “Amy Poehler is a prick.” To which the CBS host responded, “You’re a lying sonofabitch!” But is he?
He is literally so cute when he tries to be bad with that devilishly adorable smile!
Yesterday I posted a picture of Pony Boy and Johnny Cade together again and today the youngest member of The Outsiders ran into Sodapop at a radio show. Seriously has it been 30 years since that movie came out because time has been really good to Ralph Macchio and Rob Lowe.
Forget that the movie came out in 1983, can you believe the Karate Kid is 50 and Youngblood is 49? They are still as hot as when they made that timeless tale!
Before Rob Lowe was in charge of Pawnee’s money on Parks & Recreation, he was trying to win some on The $25,000 Pyramid. He sincerely looks the same now as he did when he was just 15 in that 1979 episode. Especially since he has the same hairdo then that he in Behind the Candelabra.
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.
