Celebrated actor Rob Lowe captured many hearts with his role as Chris Traeger in the 2010 NBC sitcom "Parks and Recreation." Through his posts on social media, he has consistently kept his fans updated about his whereabouts.

"#throwback to when you could never wear too many jackets," Lowe captioned the snap that already garnered more than 125,600 likes. The photograph shows the actor wearing eyeglasses, looking directly into the camera. 

In the comment section, fans quickly applauded the actor, who made a name for himself as a teen idol. One fan wrote: "My 1st crush as a kid ...that smile and adorable face...aging [like a fine] wine....still my handsome Rob Lowe."


Lowe grew up in Dayton, Ohio, and attended Oakwood Junior High School before moving to the Point Dume area of Malibu, California, with his mother and brother.


In 2018, horrible wildfires occurred in California, and in an interview, Lowe said that it had been "surreal" to discover that parts of Malibu have been ruined by the wildfires. According to the actor, his childhood home burned to the ground.

At the height of his fame, people were shocked when news broke that he had made a sex tape with two young ladies.


It was surreal and unimaginable, he added, to think of flames going over specific roads he ran around on as a little youngster. The "St. Elmo's Fire" actor went on to say that he knows many people who have lost their homes. 


Nowadays, the actor is living a settled and stable life. However, his past has been rocked by a sex tape scandal that became a life-changing event for him.


At the height of his fame, people were shocked when news broke that he had made a sex tape with two young ladies, one of whom was only 16 years old.

The underaged girl's mother sued Lowe, who received a lot of backlash over the incident. In any case, that may have been exactly what he needed to lead his life in the right direction.

Today, the actor says that the sex tape scandal was the best thing to have happened to him. Lowe explained that it forced him to stand up to his decisions and to quit drinking.

He has been sober for three decades, and his life is now completely different. Lowe is happily married to Sheryl Berkoff, whom he shares two grown-up sons with.
