Rob Lowe is letting us in on a single of his greatest regrets. 

The 55-year-old actor lately stopped by the SiriusXM Hollywood Studious to market his reside show, Stories I Only Inform My Pals: Reside! on The Jess Cagle Show. 

Through his conversation with SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle and Julia Cunningham, Lowe opened up about his sex tape and his road to recovery as a young man. 

“I speak about every little thing,” Lowe mentioned. “Here’s the point, each time you are undertaking a memoir, a book, a show about your life—job a single is authenticity and complete transparency. There cannot be that a single location you will not speak about. My entire life is there.” 

In addition to going on to star in classic films like The Outsiders and Youngblood through the 1980s, the actor had produced a property sex tape that was leaked to the press and almost ended his profession. 

Lowe jokingly told Cagle that he “invented” the sex tape and shared his greatest regret about it. 

“The issue was, I did not make any dollars off of it like everyone does,” he mentioned. “I was as well stupid.” 

But jokes aside, Lowe opened up about how the infamous sex tape produced him turn his life about through a low and chaotic point.

“It is a single of the causes I got sober. I woke up a single day and was like, ‘what am I undertaking with my life?,'” Lowe mentioned. “I am 29 years in. I honestly assume it really is the most effective point that occurred to me. I got sober. Sober got me married. I’ve been married for 29 years. I have two wonderful sons.”

The former Parks and Recreations star reflected on how he believes none of that would have been feasible had it not been for that scandal.

“It is not a wonderful recipe for results to give an 18-year-old male fame, dollars and drugs and anticipate there not to be one thing that goes incorrect,” he mentioned. “I speak a lot about recovery in the show simply because it really is very good to see the instance… I required the examples when I was attempting to alter my life. It is moving simply because it really is a serious — literal life and death issue — but it really is also seriously funny, I do a entire point about how I loved going to rehab that I’d recommend if Christmas break you are pondering about going to Cabo San Lucas or rehab, I’d choose rehab.”
