Rob Lowe: 'My Son Going Off to College ... I Was Like a Spastic Mess'

Rob Lowe is a household name.

You know him for his many films, the TV series “Parks & Rec,” and of course “The West Wing.”

Now the actor is sharing his life, his story, and his Hollywood experience in his second book – “Love Life.”

"I felt the confidence, frankly, to tell some of the stuff I wanted to tell but didn’t really have the wherewithal to do with the first one," he says.

The book allows Lowe's fans to get a full portrait of the actor, from his wilder times at the Playboy Mansion to his sentimental moments being a father.

"My son going off to college... really painful for me.  Didn’t see it coming.  I was like a spastic mess," he shares.

Watch the full interview above to hear Lowe talk about his experience as someone  "too good looking to be taken seriously."
