Rob Lowe: No Place for Pretty People
Hey Kim Kardashian, Rob Lowe feels your pain.
The Parks and Recreation star is opening up about, what he calls, a bias toward attractive people. Rob — who’s been pretty since the Reagan era — recently gave a candid interview to New York magazine, in which he discussed the burden that can come from being one of the “beautiful ones.”
We should all be so lucky.
“There’s this unbelievable bias and prejudice against quote-unquote good-looking people, that they can’t be in pain or they can’t have rough lives or be deep or interesting.”
This pretty problem was a mayjah problem for Rob during his ’80s heyday. The Wayne’s World star believes his looks limited the roles he could play; thankfully that changed with age.
Just weeks after turning 50, Lowe is back in the news with Love Life, a second memoir filled with revealing tidbits about a missed opportunity with Madonna and the chance he passed up to play Dr. McDreamy on Grey’s Anatomy. Rob also stars in the upcoming film Sex Tape — which he promotes by poking fun at his infamous underage sex tape scandal.
“Considering I pioneered the field, it’s high time I actually made some money in it.”
