Rob Lowe keeps fit to feel good

Rob Lowe has never felt physically better than he does now.

Rob Lowe gets tired if he doesn’t keep his body in peak physical condition.

The U.S. actor is back on the small screen in medical drama Code Black, playing Dr. Ethan Willis, a military doctor reassigned to an L.A. hospital. The series and Rob’s character are both inspired by real events and people, and Rob says playing Ethan has given him even more of a reason to keep fit.

“If I don’t keep myself trained in this way I get so tired. And if you saw the real guy Ethan is based on, it’s an excuse to do even more of what I already like,” he smiled to Britain’s Metro newspaper.

Rob’s been a part of the Hollywood scene since the early ‘80s, first making a name for himself as part of the Brat Pack, along with Demi Moore and Emilio Estevez.

Over the last four decades dad-of-two Rob has enjoyed success in both TV and film, and remains looking much younger than his 52 years.

“Guys ask me all the time, ‘Dude what the f**k?’ My thing is that it’s the basics women have known forever – essentials like sunscreen and moisturiser,” he listed. “It’s no big secret, it’s just men don’t do it. If you’re not going to take care of your skin, then you like s**t. It’s why I built my (skincare) line Profile For Men because I love mentoring men – it comes from mentoring my boys to men.”

And he admits thanks to his fitness regime and healthy approach to food and drink, including being teetotal for 26 years, he’s never felt better.

“I’ve never been happier or felt physically better,” he grinned. “I’ve never felt like my creative chops have been sharper or stronger. There’s that saying that it takes 10,000 hours to become a master at a craft – I’m way past that.”
