About Rob Lowe

Rob Hepler Lowe is an actor and director, whose won two Screen Actors Guild Awards during his career, and has also been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award and six Golden Globe Awards. He made his acting debut in his teens, as a part of the sitcom “A New Kind of Family” which was short lived, then had numerous television roles in the 1980s. His popularity increased significantly as a member of the Brat Pack, a group of teen actors who frequently worked together.

Some of his popular films during this time included “Oxford Blues”, “The Outsiders”, “About Last Night…” and “Square Dance” all of which helped establish him as a star. In 1988 he became involved in a sex tape scandal, and poor reception during the following year’s Academy Awards which sent his career into decline. He bounced back in 1999 through his role in the series “The West Wing” playing Sam Seaborn, which earned him several nominations. He continued to earn significant roles on television such as in “Brothers & Sisters”, “Parks and Recreation” and “Code Black”. One of his latest projects is the reality show entitled “The Lowe Files”, and he also made his directorial debut in the 2018 film entitled “The Bad Seed”.

According to Rob, Sheryl has been a great wife and an amazing mother. She has always stood beside Rob during his good and bad times. When Rob was accused of physically assaulting one of his employees, it was Sheryl who voiced against the accusation. As it turned out, the concerned employee falsely accused Rob in order to strain Rob’s relationship with his wife. But Sheryl’s immense trust on Rob didn’t allow the employee’s evil intention to affect their marriage.

Rob has recognized her efforts in making their journey a happy one. In 2016, on ‘Rachael Ray’ show, Rob made a statement which revealed the secret behind their successful marriage. He said one of the strongpoints of their marriage is their friendship. He also said that she is the reason behind their sons’ academic achievements. Sheryl also made it easier for him to reconnect with their sons after they left home for higher studies.

It was never easy for Sheryl to be an actor’s wife. Being in such a field where relationships are always insecure, Sheryl and Rob’s relation is an exception. Sheryl has never felt insecure about their relationship. She just takes pride for having a handsome hunk as her husband. In fact, she loves to see other girls and actresses drool over her husband.

In 2015, a tabloid posted a few pictures of Rob and Sheryl holidaying in Hawaii. Considering their respective age, they both looked fantastic in beachwear.

Rob Has a Cute Nickname for Sheryl

If you follow Rob on Instagram, you can see he often posts cute snaps together with his wife, and he always calls her by the sweetest nickname: "love bug." Yes, it's official. These two are approved couple goals. Here's to 30 more years of love and happiness.

The couple shares two sons together, Matthew, 28, and John, 26, Lowe. According to his Instagram bio, their eldest son Matthew is an attorney, "occasional actor," and photographer. Their younger son, John, graduated from Stanford in 2018—and likes to troll his dad from time to time. He even posted a photo of John Stamos for his Rob's birthday.

They Worked On a Movie Set Together

The movie Bad Influence was the setting for their reconnection. Berkoff was working as the film's makeup artist, and we imagine that sparks were flying when she did Rob's makeup for the film because the two fell in love and tied the knot two years later.

Lawsuit Cases

Rob and Sheryl have had their share of problems with employees they’ve hired, including several court cases. Lowe filed a lawsuit against one nanny who was engaging in a scheme to hurt the couple through spreading false information, and filed another lawsuit against a nanny who was trying to express romantic interest in him while also claiming that he sexually harassed her; she also accused Sheryl of being abusive.

The third case the couple was involved in was with a former chef who reportedly engaged in sex while the couple was out of town. The chef also stole prescription drugs, broke security cameras, and started overcharging them for food. The chef made allegations that Sheryl was an unclean, cold and heartless person. In 2008, another former nanny came forward, making 12 allegations against Lowe of sexual harassment, and labor code violations. Two of the allegations were dismissed, and the later case was called for a dismissal the following year at the request of the lawyers of both parties. Based on the reports, a settlement was reached out of court.
