Rob Lowe: Shirtless for 'Vanity Fair' May 2011

Rob Lowe: Shirtless for 'Vanity Fair' May 2011

Rob Lowe leans against a surfboard and shows off his fit physique on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s May issue.

The 47-year-old actor shared an excerpt from his upcoming book, Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography, with the fashion mag and also dished on his Masquerade co-star Charlie Sheen.

“We competed to see who could play harder, then show up for work and still kick ass. The verdict: Charlie by a nose,” Rob revealed about working with the troubled actor back in 1987.

In his book, Rob also writes about first meeting Tom Cruise, who at the time was a houseguest of the Sheens, at an audition in L.A.

“He’s open, friendly, funny, and has an almost robotic, bloodless focus and an intensity that I’ve never encountered before,” he recalled.

Rob‘s Vanity Fair cover hits newsstands this Thursday in NYC and L.A., and April 5 nationwide.

    Rob’s bath robe is an inside reference to that physical transfiguration flash vision I had of seeing myself coming out of the bathroom. I don’t think he is joking.

  • FFer

    Blow up the bath robe pic to see the baptism pool in the background. This from the actor in Austin Power II’s time-machine movie about Obama’s secret volcano lair on Hawaii.

    Just an FYI: Sheen wasn’t Lowe’s co-star in Masquerade. He was, in fact, filming Wall Street at the time. Doug Savant, another hottie, was Lowe’s co-star.
