Ellen: Rob Lowe Beautiful & Twisted
Rob Lowe’s Lifetime movie Beautiful & Twisted is based on a true story. He said when he first got the script, he thought it was impossible to believe the character acted the way that he did.
His character was a huge Batman fan so he got to wear Batman underwear and drive the Batmobile. His character was also involved in two really horrific murders that were in headlines for 10 years. His family built the Fontainebleau Hotel, which is why the murders were called the Fontainebleau Murders.
Ellen: Rob Lowe DirecTV Ads
Rob Lowe has been doing a DirecTV ad campaign where he plays two characters in a commercial. They’re all really funny. Ellen loves the commercials and he showed them to her when they were first made, before airing.
His characters include Paranoid Rob Lowe and Creepy Rob Lowe. Rob Lowe said that it’s a team effort to come up with the characters. The writers come up with the idea and then Rob Lowe comes up with how they behave. He said when they do costume fittings, Rob Lowe goes for the looks that make him the most embarrassed.
Beautiful & Twisted premieres January 31 on Lifetime.
