Rob Lowe shirtless is best advertisement the state of California could hope for

The Insider and Entertainment Tonight have a series of segments which are basically paid advertisements for the California Tourism board, but that’s ok because they’re kind of brilliant. Here’s one of their latest (above) featuring the preternaturally young looking Rob Lowe. Lowe explains about how awesome California is for outdoor enthusiasts with activities like skiing, surfing and bicycle riding. Judging from how hot he is it also seems to do wonders for one’s complexion. Unlike a lot of other wealthy famous Californians who attempt to achieve youth through chemistry, Lowe genuinely looks about 15 years younger than his age (47). In a recent interview with In Touch, Lowe said that he’s not about to get any plastic surgery either. I thought that was a Californian’s birth right. That and medicinal pot.

With his sparkling blue eyes and boyish charm, Hollywood veteran Rob Lowe is still a heartthrob. But as he nears 50, the father of two doesn’t fear losing the looks that helped make him a household name three decades ago. “I’m not worried about chronological years,” Rob, the director of the web video Butterfinger the 13th, available on Facebook, tells In Touch in an exclusive interview, adding that he has never even considered plastic surgery or Botox. “I don’t think guys should be monkeying around with that stuff.”

So without a quick fix, how does the actor plan on staying so hot? Rob credits his sons, Edward, 18, and John, 16, with keeping him fit. “I’m outside surfing, diving, you name it,” he says. “I’m very cool with my teenagers.”

If that’s the result of living in that climate sign me up. At least get me there on vacation if there are more guys like Lowe around. I’m more of a city girl and am not the outdoorsy type, but given how hot those type of guys are I should at least go buy a pair of hiking boots. I’ll ride my bike and try to surf. There’s no way in hell you’re ever going to get me to go white water rafting or mountain climbing though. I have to draw the line somewhere.

These are just gratuitous shirtless photos of Rob Lowe, plus some event photos where he’s looking dapper. The photo of him in the casual-type suit is from 10-12-11, but it looks like it could have been taken in the 80s! He’s also shown in a tux on 5-16-11 with his wife. Credit: Fame

    He looks amazing! Does he have a monsterous portrait in his attic? lol

  2. Girl says:

    That man sold his soul to the devil. Ouch! 47? Damn!

  3. Happymom says:

    I’m not a huge arm pit/hair fan, so that picture kind of skeeves me out. But he looks damn good for his age. I live in SoCal and there are a ton of “older “guys who have similar attractive looks-must be the sun and the surfing.

  4. JaneWonderfalls says:

    He’s okay, I’m more of a Patrick Dempsey kind of girl, Never cared for the Brat Pack anyway…

  5. Nev says:

    Top 10. definitely amazing for 47.

  6. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Dude looks DAMN fine for 47.

  7. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Woah. Just feel like HGF came a couple of days early this week. Thank you.

    Also, it just isn’t fair how most men get sexier with age. (While we women struggle to keep up!)

  8. ShanKat says:

    Hell to the yeah. A classic!

  9. Nan says:

    I never particularly liked him but I love him in Parks and Recs. He is just hilarious.

    Is showing his age a little in the mouth. He’s getting the puckered thin lips but he’s still good looking (And I think I like him now because he’s letting that show).

  10. MJ says:

    No surgery maybe, but plenty of botox. He can hardly move his upper lip and forehead.

  11. DorothyZbornak says:

    Not only is he still smoking hot, but he’s also hilarious. He is amazing on Parks & Rec.

  12. Chatcat says:

    Very nice indeed. Kudos to him for keeping his fine features untouched by the botox and surgery and for his workouts that obviously have his bod as hot as any 35 year old. Yum!

  13. Jayna says:

    Rob is gorgeous, and love his chest and arms. But I don’t tend to go for pretty boy older celebs like Bon Jovi, Rob, Brad Pitt. They don’t do it for me…The older celebs I find attractive have strong features and character in their face but still great arms and chest and flat stomachs, NO pot bellies, like Roland Orzabal (Tears for Fears), Javier Bardiem, Liam Neeson.

  14. Nina says:

    Something about Rob reminds me of a guy I had a huge crush on in university. Sexy sexy man!

  15. j says:

    I have always heard he is an asshole.. especially to the people who work at his house.. freind told me.. that is all i will say

  16. whatevs says:

    he does look good for his age. shame that he’s such an a-hole

  17. Brooke says:

    i have always been fond of Rob Lowe, but really my comment is to tell you that white water rafting is fun and easy, so give it a chance! just went for the first time this summer in Costa Rica and can’t wait to go again. we were grinning ear to ear the entire time.

  18. Denise says:

    Hold that thought Rob, I am on my way to the airport!

  19. Criss says:

    Listen, if we all grew up with millions of dollars, it wouldn’t be too hard to keep fit at 47 or 57. Give me a break. We all don’t live next to the beach to go surfing etc.. he makes his living off of his looks. Good for him, but let’s hear how concerned he is about the state of California.

  20. Happy21 says:

    That is the sexiest man alive right there! DAMN!!

  21. Reece says:

    We do have some good stuff in the water out here don’t we? :-D

  22. Chelsey says:

    Is it just me, or does his wife have some serious Botox going on? Like, the lower half of her face is taut and weird…

    Nothing bad to say about him though, yum.

  23. dahlia1947 says:

    He looks great. I had such a crush on him in his rat Pack days! Yummy! We drove all around southern California a couple of years ago and the climate was just divine!

  24. LuvHotGuyFri says:

    Rob Lowe is my biggest celebrity crush. He is so sexy with pretty eyes and smile, AND an amazing body, especially for his age. I just love him. I think Matt Dillon is a close second-he radiates confidence and sex appeal.
    Thank you for this post.
    Can you please fix the link for the top picture? It says page not found on mobile-I can only see the little version of the picture on the home page-thank you!

    “I don’t think guys should be monkeying around with that stuff.”

    Ugh, Rob Lowe! This comment really irritated me. Way to enforce double standards.

  26. AM says:

    OMFG he looks goooood for his age and has a 20+year marriage – good for him :)

  27. Amy says:

    Gorgeous *and* he’s freaking hilarious on Parks and Rec.

  28. Laura says:

    YAY Rob Lowe, thank you very much ;) He is my number one crush, and still so damn sexy.
    Also, isn’t his oldest son named Matthew? Edward perhaps is middle name.
