Robe Lowe empathizes with “Twilight’s” Taylor Lautner
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Rob Lowe knew how Taylor Lautner felt when hoardes of screaming young girls accosted their shared box at the Indianapolis Colts game. Both actors had been personally invited by team owner Jim Irsay to watch a playoffs game.
But former teen heartthrob Lowe got more than he bargained for by sitting next to current teen heartthrob Lautner. Per his comments to the UK Telegraph, the scene brought back memories for former Brat Pack star Lowe, who remembers being on the receiving end of the same frenzied treatment.
“They were coming up to the box and literally staring at him. Some were screaming. Others took his picture…It actually made me really emotional, seeing him struggle with it. He’s such a lovely kid; he’s even younger than I was,” Lowe mused.
“[The fame] has nothing to do with you,” the middle aged star observed, some thirty years after having been frequently accosted himself. “Every generation there’s That Guy. And sometimes there’s three in a generation, or four, but somebody’s got to be That Guy. I was That Guy.”
