80’s Hollywood heartthrob Rob Lowe turns 60

Actor Rob Lowe was born Robert Hepler Lowe on March 17, 1964, in Charlottesville, Virginia, the son of Chuck and Barbara Lowe, a trial lawyer, and retired teacher. His younger brother Chad also became an actor, and at one point was married to actress Hilary Swank. Lowe became a Hollywood heartthrob with starring roles in “St. Elmo’s Fire” (1985) and “About Last Night” (1986). Following an incident with a female minor, he disappeared from the public eye for several years, eventually re-establishing himself on the popular drama “The West Wing”. Later successes included featured roles on “Brothers & Sisters” and “Parks and Recreation,” as well as a Golden Globe nomination for his work on “The Grinder”. Lowe married Sheryl Berkoff in 1991. They met twice, once at a speed dating session, and again on the set of Lowe’s movie, Bad Influence (1990). The couple has two sons Matthew Edward Lowe born in 1993, and John Owen Lowe born in 1995.
