    Interesting interview. I feel like Rob Lowe held a lot back. I haven't read the book but we shall see if it seems reserved or candy coated. I noticed Rob said he met his wife when she was his makeup artist on Bad Influence in 1989. However, it had always been reported that Sheryl Berkoff was a former girlfriend of Rob's dear friend Emilio Estevez in the early to mid 80's.
