Rob Lowe talks about Taylor Lautner’s fame

Rob Lowe recently spoke with The Telegraph about Taylor Lautner and his fame. Here is what he had to say!

Rob Lowe recently found himself at an American football game with Taylor Lautner, the 19-year-old star of the Twilight films.

Both actors are fans of the Indianapolis Colts and were invited by the Colts’ owner, Jim Irsay, to attend one of the play-offs.

Sitting together in an open box, with a group of people, they soon found themselves surrounded by a mob of teenage girls. ‘They were coming up to the box and literally staring at him,’ Lowe recalls. ‘Some were screaming. Others took his picture. Others were like this…’

Lowe gets up, walks over and plants his face a few inches from mine, his fists clenched, his eyes boring into me, like a Maori doing the Haka.

‘It was all I could bear to watch,’ he says, retaking his seat. ‘It actually made me really emotional, seeing him struggle with it. He’s such a lovely kid, he’s even younger than I was. It has nothing to do with you. Every generation there’s That Guy. And sometimes there’s three in a generation, or four, but somebody’s got to be That Guy. I was That Guy.’
