Stories I Only Tell My Friends was a pleasant surprise: a genuinely moving and entertaining window into the life of the boy next door who became one of the superstars of Hollywood. In Love Life, Rob Lowe demonstrates just how he’s managed to have such staying power in a challenging industry. Simply, he’s consistently good! He somehow manages to be both dish-y and classy while dropping names like Madonna and Bill Clinton. He is charming and generous, understating his power at the helm of companies like Miramax or through politics. From his first trip to the Playboy Mansion to dropping of his son at college, we’re with him all the way. You have to wonder if Mr. Lowe will follow in the famous footsteps of Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. He has charisma and conscience and energy to spare.
