Boys that stand the test of time

One of my favorite crushes that has stood the test of time is Rob Lowe. I've loved him since 1983 and he burst onto the scene as Sodapop Curtis in The Outsiders.

Isn't he just adorable????? Okay, so there was that little sex scandal thing, and the alcoholism. But he fessed up, got help, and I think, has come back better than ever. Rob has been in so many movies and television shows it would be impossible to list them all, so I'll just give you a few of my favs.

1984- Oxford Blues, so good!

1985- St. Elmo's Fire- who could resist the irresponsible playboy, Billy Hicks???? Not me!

One of my absolute fav performances of Rob's was a skit he performed on SNL. He was Shaggy from Scooby-Doo and I'm telling you, it was the funniest thing ever. Couldn't find it on YouTube, sorry! But here's a pic.

He's currently heating up Brothers & Sisters as Senator McAllister. I found out while searching for these pics, that Rob is deaf in his right ear. Do you have a favorite Rob Lowe movie?
Enjoy the view! Happy Friday!
All that matters is what's long as your outside is wearing the tiara!

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah! Rob Lowe just keeps getting better with age. I re-discovered him on The West Wing, and now enjoy him on Brothers and Sisters. No favorite movie, per se, I just enjoy any chance I get to watch him.

Oh, Steph, you hit right on one of my soft spots! St. Elmo's Fire is one of my all time faves. He was adorable in The Outsiders too!

YAY, STEPH!!! I had a MAJOR crush on him, too. I don't have a favorite, but I liked Oxford Blues and his character in The Stand.

Who can forget About Last Night with Demi Moore? I sure can't, although Jim Belushi totally stole the show as the jerk friend. Rob Lowe was so great in that romantic movie, and it was SO realistic!
(and it was filmed in my hometown, Chicago!)

Not a movie, but my favorite Rob Lowe role is Sam Seaborn on The West Wing. *sigh* I adored Sam.

Steph, I was more of a Pony Boy girl myself. But The Outsiders wasn't hurting for eye candy at all!

Just wanted to say love the new look of the blog, ladies!

I always liked Rob Lowe. Even in Mystic Pizza, where he's the rich kid jerk who likes Julia Roberts. He is, in a word, delicious!

Yes, yes, yes! Have always hearted Rob Lowe, as well. Soda Pop in THE OUTSIDERS, right? I also loved him in CLASS, OXFORD BLUES, ST. ELMO'S and wow, just name it. And yeah, Simone! I remember seeing ABOUT LAST NIGHT in the theatre. We had to sneak in. LOL!!

When he was younger he seemed like the kind of guy who would flash-in-the-pan and then fizzle with age, but I agree that he's definitely still going strong. All time fave Rob Lowe movie has to be St. Elmo's Fire... that's just one of the best movies ever.
