Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography by Rob Lowe
Rob Lowe was swept from the painfully misunderstood life of a child actor in Ohio and cast into the wild mid-1970s Malibu scene early on. An iconic teen dream at 15 and a full-fledged member of the Brat Pack by 20, Lowe experienced the party-fueled nature of young Hollywood. In constant pursuit of success, he grew into one of the industry’s A-listers in no time.
From the youth movement of The Outsiders to the politics of show business on The West Wing, Lowe walked amongst some of the most well-known actors in Hollywood (he talks about sharing a bed with Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon’s smooth moves and more). Lowe’s recollections of these times and those people are a candid and oftentimes hilarious collection of never-before-heard stories.
From fame to family, from sorrow to sobriety, Lowe talks about everywhere he has been and what led him to the life of a content husband and father.
