Imagine how difficult it is for him to sort through his collection of headshots and personal photos when his stunning smile framed amongst a sculpted face looks the same age in every picture.
Who could possibly tell which shots belong in the 1989 folder and which are from last week's lunch date? This is a burden that the 49-year-old Lowe and his beaming blue eyes accept as fate.

Just months before his 50th birthday, Killing Kennedy star Rob Lowe is experiencing a career renaissance – but he is most excited about his life as a family man.
"My work life is so chaotic and we live in Santa Barbara so it is a very long drive but I'm home every night and I wake up in a beautiful area with my family," Lowe tells PEOPLE. "Sometimes on days off I don't even leave the property."
And although the past few months has been a busy time for the Parks and Recreation star, he is taking extra care to savor his last few months with his youngest son, John Owen, 18, before he goes off to college, following in the footsteps of his brother Matthew, 20, who is in his second year at Duke University.
"They are both so academically advanced," says the proud papa. "They have also been a handful at times but I wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, if they had not been I would have worried where my DNA was!"

Rob Lowe took a thoughtful approach to playing one of our nation's most beloved public figures, John F. Kennedy.
"I think for known figures, the key is inhabitation, not imitation," Lowe says of his transformation into the 35th President for National Geographic Channel's Killing Kennedy, based on Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book.
It airs Nov. 10 – 12 days before the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination.
Lowe had studied the Kennedys for some time, well before he was asked to play the role.

It's true – Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins are peacing out of Pawnee.
Mike Schur, Parks and Recreation's executive producer, confirms that Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones are set to exit the series.
"The news about Rob and Rashida is true – they will be leaving the show after the 13th episode of the upcoming season six. We've been working on their storyline (on and off) for four seasons now, and heading into this year, with the two of them contemplating parenthood, it felt like a natural time to move them into the next phase," Schur said in a statement.

He already loves Parks and Recreation, and now Rob Lowe is adding "wildlife rescue" to his growing list of interests.
As part of Procter & Gamble's Dawn Saves Wildlife campaign, the Golden Globe nominee will be narrating a documentary web series called The Big Picture, highlighting the rescue efforts of the Marine Mammal Center and the International Bird Rescue, which saves wildlife from oil spills using Dawn dish soap.
You might be wondering: What does the actor have to do with animals? Actually, leading a charitable life has been on Lowe's agenda since he was 15.

The first photo from Killing Kennedy requires a double take.
Rob Lowe, 49 – who portrays John F. Kennedy in National Geographic Channel's film adaptation of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book, Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot – looks like the real deal as the iconic president who was assassinated in 1963 at age 46.
The film, set for a small-screen release in November, also stars Ginnifer Goodwin as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and Michelle Trachtenberg as Lee Harvey Oswald's wife, Marina Oswald.

As Dr. Startz, Liberace's plastic surgeon, in Behind the Candelabra, Rob Lowe revealed an astonishing physical transformation.
"I wanted him to be at once repellant and engaging, if that's possible. He reminded me of a certain genus and species of guy that you would see at Laker games during the Magic Johnson era," Lowe told EW.com.
Lowe, 49, adds that the transformation – which took an hour and 45 minutes every day – involved several makeup tests to get the look and feel of the doctor's face just right.

Director Steven Soderbergh's Behind the Candelabra (Sunday, 9 p.m. ET, on HBO) is one of the smartest, tartest examples I've ever seen of that soupy genre, the Hollywood biopic.
Michael Douglas – simply great – plays Liberace, once upon a time billed as Mr. Showmanship. Wikipedians probably know him as a closeted Vegas piano act who performed under staggering amounts of fur, jewels and sequins – with his thick toupee, he looked like Bob Mackie's idea of a snow owl – and who died of complications from AIDS in 1987.

That's one way to establish yourself as a jetsetter.
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.
