Rob Lowe Talks Pretty People Problems

“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. They can’t be any of the things that you long to play as an actor. I’m getting to play those parts now and loving it. When I was a teen idol, I was so goddamn pretty I wouldn’t have taken myself seriously. … [T]here’s a historical bias that good-looking people are not funny.”

Cindy Crawford isn’t the only attractive person who has suffered from the stereotype that all pretty people are dumb. The very pretty Rob Lowe opened up to The New York Times Magazine about his second memoir, in which he describes the difficulties he has faced trying to be a ‘serious actor’ because of his Neutrogena-commercial good looks. Again, it’s hard to feel bad for someone who is essentially complaining about how attractive he is … but you know, I kinda get it. It sucks to be stereotyped and put in a box, no matter what that box is. Rob Lowe happens to be a great actor: he has done everything from “The West Wing” to “Behind The Candelabra” to “Parks & Recreation” to made-for-TV movies on every channel. It’s obvious the guy has range and he’s easy on the eyes. [New York Times Magazine] [Image via WENN]

How Do We Feel About Rob Lowe As JFK In “Killing Kennedy”?

Check Out That Boston Accent

Rob Lowe isn’t happy unless he’s starring in a made-for-TV movie as Drew Peterson or so other murderer, so it’s good to see him flex his range as President John F. Kennedy in “Killing Kennedy.” The National Geographic flick will air on Sunday, November 10, and is based on the nonfiction book written by Bill O’Reilly (yes, that Bill O’Reilly). With Ginnifer Goodwin as Jackie O and Lowe breaking out his most believable Massachusetts-ian accent, I might just have to give this one a looksee.  [YouTube]

12 Celebs Who Never Seem To Age (Or Are Actively Aging In Reverse)

Watching the Emmys this weekend, I was totally blown away by how amazing Julianna Margulies looked. “She hasn’t aged a day in 10 years!” I gasped, and then I saw Edie Falco, and thought the same thing, and then Nicole Kidman showed up, and I realized a photo slideshow was in order. Click through to check out side-by-side pics of 12 celebs who, through the magic of sunscreen or Botox or the blood of virgins, look exactly the same (or younger!) as they did a decade ago…

So This Is What Rob Lowe’s Been Up To In His Spare Time

Watch Video

Little did we know while we were watching him make funnies on “Parks and Recreation”, Rob Lowe was growing a porno ‘stache and preparing to play suspected murderer Drew Peterson in what appears to be an epic Lifetime movie. “Drew Peterson: Untouchable” looks like it might surpass “Mother May I Sleep With Danger” in awesomeness. Sorry, Tori Spelling. It’s good to have something to look forward to in the New Year. [NY Mag]

GIF Of The Day: Rob Lowe Dances On “Parks & Recreation”

Rob Lowe always seemed like a stuffed shirt nowadays to me — a hot stuffed shirt, mind you — based on his buttoned up roles on “The West Wing” and “Brothers & Sisters.” It turns out the guy can bust a move and he did so Thursday night on “Parks & Recreation.” NYmag.com’s Vulture blog aptly calls it “seizure in a club”! Maybe Rob learned how to dance like this from his days hanging out with Charlie Sheen? [NYmag.com] Keep reading »

You know you’ve been wanting to see “The West Wing”‘s Sam Seaborn — I mean, actor Rob Lowe — with his shirt off ever since President Bartlett got into office. Thank you, Vanity Fair for this unearned treat. What did we do to deserve it? [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Bette Midler Is Taking On A New Role

  • Bette Midler is giving Jennifer Aniston love advice: “I think she needs somebody who cherishes her, but also somebody who’s going to give her a run for her money.” [People] — It wouldn’t hurt for Jen to stop acting so desperate.

  • Wanda Sykes, who came out last November, and her wife Alex are the proud parents of twins born in April. [Perez Hilton]

    8 Celebrity Sex Tapes Not To Miss

    I consider myself a bit of a celebrity sex tape connoisseur. Watching celebrities have sex for real, kind of reminds me that they’re human, just like the rest of us. Seeing celebrities use the toilet would probably have the same effect, but it’s not as fun. Anyway, here are the top eight you should really know about, where you might find them if they were carried in a video store, and some key tidbits in order to increase your potential to be a good dinner party guest. Because people LOVE to talk about celebrity sex tapes over tuna casserole, trust me.

    1. “One Night In Paris” starring Paris Hilton & Rick Solomon
    Where To Find It: Next to “The Blair Witch Project”, filed under “night vision goggles” and “totally overrated.”
    Best Scene: Paris literally texts away on her Sidekick while Solomon has his way with her. Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Heather Matarazzo Asks Her Girlfriend To Join Her Special People’s Club

  • Heather “Weiner Dog” Matarazzo (Welcome to the Dollhouse) is engaged to her girlfriend of a year, Carolyn Murphy (not the supermodel). Apparently because Heather and Carolyn don’t have “male” and “female” roles in their relationship, they proposed to each other. AWW! I think straight couples should take up this practice as well. Anyway, this is just such a great excuse to post the classic scene above. [DListed]
