"When I met her, I knew that if I could not make it with her, I definitely could not make it work with anyone else," Lowe said.
With roles in St. Elmo's Fire, The Outsiders, and Parks and Recreation to his name, Rob Lowe, 59, has had a long acting career in Hollywood. The actor, who is nearly a sexagenarian, still looks fantastic. Lowe recently shared an adorable Instagram photo with his wife Sheryl Berkoff, all dressed up for a date night on April 16, captioned, "Date night with my beautiful sweetie!"
The photo was met with adoration from fans, complimenting his fitness at 59. A user commented, "Rob Lowe, the man that never ages, yet I do lol! You were my 80s heartthrob! God bless ya and your genes!" Another user commented, "Both of you look incredible for 'our' age!"
Lowe, who has now been sober for 33 years, was an addict in his early days in Hollywood, just like many other people in the business. He has been married to makeup artist Sheryl Berkoff since 1991, and she has been Lowe's biggest supporter.
He didn't overcome his addictions and transform into the best version of himself until he met his future bride. He shares that Sheryl saved him, in an interview with ET. "Listen, she may have saved my life, really," he said of Sheryl. "I mean, she met me when I was at the end of my '80s run of wild boy craziness and she was worth changing my life for. And so I am really lucky that that happened to me. Maybe I had changed it on my own, maybe, but it's a big maybe. And just when I met her, I knew that if I could not make it with her, I definitely could not make it work with anyone else," he said.
Ahead of their 30-year wedding anniversary, the star gushed about his wife and his two kids 30-year-old Matthew and 28-year-old John. "And I always wanted that life, I really wanted kids," Lowe said. "I wanted a normal life outside of Hollywood. I wanted to insert myself in Hollywood for what I needed to do and get out like a light and live as normal of a life as I can, and we were able to do that because I think we were very well matched," he added.
To commemorate their milestone anniversary, Lowe says he will undoubtedly "purchase" something for Sheryl, but he is simply always in awe of the fact that he managed to find such a beautiful spouse. "Just the fact that I am so blessed to have found the right person, that I found a soulmate and someone who I think is so hot and smart and funny. Great mother, and a great businesswoman, I am just super, super blessed and I can't believe 30 years, that sounds insane coming out of my mouth. Really, truly," he said.
