Rob Lowe Has Barely Aged in Side-By-Side Post Comparing 2021 to 1985

by John Jamison

People go to great lengths to maintain a youthful appearance. Some get plastic surgery; others invest in expensive skin care treatments. “9-1-1: Lone Star” actor Rob Lowe, though? He simply exists. The iconic actor posted a before and after photo to Instagram, proving to everyone that he’s still got it.

Okay, we’re not suggesting that Rob Lowe does nothing to maintain his youthful appearance. He is paid to appear on camera, after all. But looking at the side-by-side photos of 1985 Lowe and 2021 Lowe is something to behold.

In 1985, the 21-year old actor was coming off of projects like “The Outsiders” and “St. Elmo’s Fire.” He was a big-time Hollywood heartthrob, and that doesn’t appear to have changed. If anything, the 2021 Rob Lowe’s age has given him a bit of edginess that his younger self lacked.

So how does he do it? How does the Lowe look just shy of 40 at 57? There’s no big secret. If you want to keep looking good, you’re going to have to make some sacrifices.

“When I was in my mid-20s it was: I’ve got to stop drinking. Then it became: I need to find a workout that I love, following by starting to eat better, and cutting out things like sugar,” Lowe told Today in 2018. “You get to that point in your life where you realize you’ve got to stop eating like you’re in college. Each year just requires a little bit more discipline and focus as I get older.”

It’s that easy, folks. No alcohol, no dessert, plenty of exercise, and you too can look like Rob Lowe. If only it were so simple.

These are the two young men who genuinely look like Rob Lowe fell out of 1985 into today—his sons. This time, the fans were in luck, as Johnny has already chimed in on his dad’s post from a few hours ago.

“Neither of you wore it better. There’s no better here,” Johnny Lowe responded to his dad’s question.

Other fans were considerably less critical of Lowe.

“Mr Lowe, there is no difference,” one admirer commented.

“This is like one of those childhood puzzles where you have to find all the differences between the pictures. But man, I’m stumped on this one,” another fan of Lowe’s joked.
