Rob Lowe Turns 60: See His Son’s Hilarious Birthday Shout-Out Featuring John Stamos

Rob Lowe Turns 60: See His Son’s Hilarious Birthday Shout-Out Featuring John Stamos

Although it’s somewhat hard to believe given his general chiseled handsomeness, Rob Lowe turned 60 on Sunday, and the star was feeling the love from his friends and family. However, his son John Lowe poked some fun at his dad on the occasion, sharing a family photo that included himself, his brother Matthew, their mom Sheryl, and their dad. However, Rob’s face had been crudely photoshopped, and replaced with John Stamos’ head. “If you could all be so kind, please send some birthday love my Dad’s way,” John captioned the doctored snapshot. “HE’S SIXTY TODAY!!!! Love you forever, pops.” The joke post is likely in reference to the frequency with which Rob and John are often mistaken for one another by excited fans — or comments John made last year in which he jokingly referred to himself as a more handsome version of Rob. Meanwhile, the birthday boy took to Instagram as well to commemorate the milestone, and posted a snapshot of himself wearing a T-shirt with a throwback photo of himself from his teens, …

Ireland on course for Six Nations Grand Slam as Sheehan, Lowe and Frawley tries sink Wales

Ireland on course for Six Nations Grand Slam as Sheehan, Lowe and Frawley tries sink Wales

After beating Italy by six tries to nil last time out, Andy Farrell described Ireland’s performance as “a bit clunky”. After this four-try bonus point win over Wales, which keeps their bid to become the first team in the Six Nations era to win back-to-back Grand Slams right on track, he called his men “a bit passive”. There is a theme developing here. Ireland are performing at a different level to every other team in this Six Nations. Even when they are not at their best – and Farrell was right, they never really got out of third gear against a limited, albeit spirited Wales team – they are simply too good, too well-oiled, and have too much strength in depth. Warren Gatland spent the build-up to this match promising his Wales team would target callow full-back Ciaran Frawley, with Hugo Keenan – arguably the world’s best full-back – out injured. But just as Jack Crowley stepped into the boots of Johnny Sexton in Marseille without missing a beat, so Frawley, on his first Six …

Rob Lowe Reads Out Brutal Text He Accidentally Sent Bradley Cooper

Rob Lowe sent a heartfelt congratulatory text to a friend who did not win a Golden Globe. The Parks and Recreation actor said he recently texted Bradley Cooper a message intended for Robert Downey Jr. after the latter won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his performance in Oppenheimer. Cooper was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture ― Drama and Best Director of a Motion Picture for his work in Maestro. He did not win either category. “So Downey does this amazing acceptance speech at the Golden Globes,” Lowe said on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday. “And I’m so excited for him. So I text him: ‘So glad you won. That is the most beautiful acceptance speech I’ve heard in a long time. Boy, do you deserve it.’ I hit it. And I realised, oh shit, I just sent that to Bradley Cooper.” He added, “Who did not win.” He continued, “So then I was like, ‘Oh, I gotta make it better.’ And I said, ‘No, no, …

Rupert Lowe will stand for Reform UK in by-election after ‘selfish’ Tory quit | Politics | News

The former football chairman and businessman will on Wednesday officially declare he is standing for election in Kingswood, South Gloucestershire. A by-election is being held in the little-known seat on February 15 after ex-Conservative MP Chris Skidmore quit. It is the same day as a vote in Wellingborough after veteran Tory Peter Bone faced a recall petition for breaching the MPs’ code of conduct. The seismic judgment day is a barometer ahead of the general election, set to be held in November. Reform UK leader Richard Tice described the Kingswood by-election as “a scandal of selfishness, of hypocrisy, and of grotesque abuse of taxpayers’ cash” and initially refused to put up a candidate. But Mr Lowe, 66, who stood as a Referendum Party general election candidate in The Cotswolds in 1997, finishing fourth, told the Daily Express of his intention to stand with the full support of his boss. He said: “If you’re happy with the way you are being governed, that’s fine, please vote as you always have. But I see this as an …

Rob Lowe Is Still Upset About How His Footloose Audition Played Out

Rob Lowe Is Still Upset About How His Footloose Audition Played Out

Four decades have passed since one of Rob Lowe’s biggest Hollywood rejections – but he’s admitted he’s still not over it. In the early 80s, Rob was in the running to play the lead in the big-screen musical Footloose, only to lose out on the role to Kevin Bacon. “The thing that’s awful about it was, I was the guy. I was going to get this part, I just had to do the dance, which was to a Styx song, by the way. Not helpful,” he recalled to USA Today. “But it ended with that drop-to-your-knees slide across the floor. My knee just exploded. They took me out on a stretcher.” Rob continued: “As they were wheeling me out, the producers were like, ‘We’re going have to get a real professional dancer.’ A week into my rehab, I read they cast Kevin Bacon. That’s when I learned what Hollywood was about.” Kevin Bacon in 1984’s Footloose Paramount/Kobal/Shutterstock He added: “There are two ways I’ve been very helpful to other actors’ careers.
