Rob Lowe Opens Up About Being Sober for 30 Years, Says 'You Have To Want To Do It'

Rob Lowe is reflecting on his sobriety.

During a new interview, the 56-year-old 9-1-1: Lone Star actor opened up about being sober for over 30 years.

“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?” Rob joked during his interview with Sunday Sitdown. “But when I was done, I was done.”

Rob decided to get sober 26, and now admits he “barely” recognizes his pre-sober self.

“It is legitimately another lifetime,” Rob shared. “I’ve been sober way longer than half my life.”

After becoming so well known at such a young name, Rob admits that there is a very dangerous side to fame.

“You either come out on the other side of it way, way, way better or way, way, way worse,” Rob said.

In order to get embrace sobriety, Rob says that “you have to want to do it.”
