Rob Lowe on Demi Moore –
Oct. 1, 2019 – “She was a huge inspiration to me,” the actor continued. “It was the ‘80s, we were all doing our thing. I just remember thinking, ‘If that girl can get sober, anybody can.’ Everybody has that person in their life where they go, ‘That’s a great example.’ So it was very helpful.” Lowe, who has been sober for 29 years, said he “loved rehab” because it gave him “answers that I didn’t have” about life.
“It was like going to school to learn how to live your life with tools that nobody ever taught me,” he explained. “Here’s one of the great ones I learned: Never compare your insides to someone else’s outsides. I spent a lot of time thinking, ‘Should I be doing this, should I be doing that?’ It changed my life. I have great empathy for people who can just do it themselves. I needed experts. It was great, it was fantastic.”
