Tom Cruise is one subject in Rob Lowe’s new book

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: It’s hard to believe that Rob Lowe, who looks so delicious on the cover of the new ‘Vanity Fair,’ has been a star for more than 25 years.

Now one of the stars of NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ after successful runs on ‘Brothers & Sisters’ and ‘The West Wing,’ Rob came to fame in movies appearing in such hits as ‘Class,’ ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ and ‘About Last Night.’

One of his earlier films was ‘The Outsiders’ directed by Francis Ford Coppola with a cast that included Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane, Emilio Estevez, Matt Dillon and a guy named Tom Cruise.

Rob, now 46, has a memoir coming out next month called ‘Stories I Only Tell My Friends.’ A portion about Cruise during the filming of ‘Outsiders’ is in the magazine that is pretty revealing.

During the first round of auditions in Los Angeles, Lowe writes of meeting Cruise, then a houseguest of the Sheens: “He’s open, friendly, funny, and has an almost robotic, bloodless focus and an intensity that I’ve never encountered before.”

In New York for the second round of auditions, Lowe finds that Cruise is “already showing traits that will make him famous; he’s zeroed in like a laser.”

“We check into the Plaza Hotel. I am taken aback at the luxury and spectacle of the lobby…. The front desk tells us we will be sharing rooms,” Lowe writes of the actors’ arrival in the Big Apple. “In a flash, Cruise is on the phone to his agent, Paula Wagner. ‘Paula, they are making us share,’ he says…. The rest of us are staggering around like happy goofs….. ‘O.K., then. Thank you very much,’ he says like a 50-year-old businessman getting off the phone with his stockbroker. ‘Paula says it’s fine.’ ”
