WATCHGetting More Out of Life – 

Jan. 17, 2021 – Rob Lowe is Willie Geist’s virtual guest on this weekend’s “Sunday Sitdown” for “Today”, and he reflected on the wildness of his younger years — and how they ultimately led him to a life of sobriety.

“I was a teen idol, young movie star and an alcoholic [with] a lotta money, and it was a great mix. What could possibly go wrong?” Lowe joked. “But when I was done, I was done.”

He got sober at 26, and admitted he “barely” recognized his Brat Pack-era self. “It is legitimately another lifetime. I’ve been sober way longer than half my life,” he said. Experiencing the kind of fame and success at such a young age, he admitted, can be perilous.
