Rob Lowe Claims He Saw Bigfoot, Thought He Was Going to Die

Rob Lowe has a new reality series with his sons Matthew and John Owen called The Lowe Files, in which they explore modern myths.

In one upcoming episode, they search for Bigfoot and Rob claims they actually had an encounter with the “wood ape.”

“We had an incredible encounter with what locals call the wood ape, which is in the Ozark Mountains. I’m fully aware that I sound like a crazy, Hollywood kook right now,” Rob told EW. “I was lying on the ground thinking I was going to be killed.”

“A wood ape is the local vernacular for a Sasquatch or a Bigfoot,” he added. “This is what I love about our show. We have fun with all of this. We hit the bullseye between true believer and skeptic in a fun way. [The locals] talk to you about the wood ape in all seriousness. If you call it a Bigfoot or a Sasquatch, they roll their eyes… as if that makes it less outrageous.”

The Lowe Files premieres on Wednesday, August 2 on A&E.
