Rob Lowe strapped on a jetpack to get a taste of the air up there on March 20 in Newport Beach, Calif.
Wearing a helmet as gusts of water stream by him, Lowe couldn't hide his smile as he soared through the air.
Lowe, 49, was enjoying one expensive toy – the newest model of the Jetlev water propelled jetpack he's seen wearing retails for around $68,500.
But maybe a little fun was just what the actor – who is the new curator for InsideHook.com – needed after recently starring in Lifetime's dramatic Prosecuting Casey Anthony.
