Consider yourself alerted to Rob Lowe’s cover story in the new GQ. It’s about reinvention, that most American quality which Lowe has uniquely embodied, and contains such jewels as:
“If you are in a transitional period, a rebuilding period, a fallow period, go to the opposite end of your range. For me, that was comedy.”
This fall, let’s all heed Lowe’s words. Diversify our bonds and remember all that other stuff we’re good at.

And if you’ll be in/around L.A. October 2, don’t miss the chance to physically, actually, literally meet Rob Lowe at Nordstrom at The Grove, where he’ll be chilling in men’s fragrance on floor one from noon-1 p.m.
