80s Heartthrobs: Where Are They Now?

Rob Lowe Youngblood

Rob Lowe shot to fame in films such as "The Outsiders," "St. Elmo's Fire," "Youngblood" and "About Last Night." He was one of the infamous members of the "Brat Pack," which also included Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson, Demi Moore, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy.

In 1988, Lowe made headlines after a videotape surfaced showing him engaged in sexual activities with two women at an Atlanta hotel during the Democratic National Convention.  One of those women turned out to be just 16. Lowe's reputation was ruined and after entering rehab for drug and sex addiction he laid low for a little while.

Lowe appeared in several films over the 90s and made his comeback on TV's critically acclaimed "The West Wing" in 1996. He left in 2003, starred in a couple of failed series, and joined "Parks and Recreation" in 2010, becoming one of the show's most popular characters.

He played JFK in 2013's TV movie "Killing Kennedy" and, coming full circle, appeared in the comedy "Sex Tape" alongside Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel in 2014.

He celebrated 25 years of sobriety in May 2015.

Lowe has been married to his wife, Sheryl Berkoff, for 24 years. They have two sons.
