3 questions for...Rob Lowe

Good-looking actor; consummate skier

1. In high school you got the award for Most School Spirit. Any advice for people who hate the holidays, given how spirited you are?

When people say they hate the holidays I get it, because I sort of hate New Year’s Eve. I hate the monkey-circus, weekend-warrior aspect, so what I like to do is have a New Year’s party with my kids, who are 11 and 13. I’ve learned to just make it my own. If you don’t like the holidays for the traditional reasons, then make it your own: make your own traditions, do something completely off-the-wall.

2. Do you ever look in the mirror and think, God I look good?

Well listen, if I have the right clothes on and I’m going out to some great event...maybe. But I just think guys aren’t so much into the aesthetics business. I’m much more apt to go, Wow, I am some hot skier. [Laughs]

3. If there were a gun to your head, who would you sleep with, Wayne or Garth?

Hilarious. Oh that’s so hilarious. I want you to note how much consideration I’m giving this before I answer. I like Wayne’s hair better, but I don’t like the hat. You know, I’ve always liked blonds, and I’m not going to change that at this point in my life. I’m going to go with Garth.—Alison Rosen
