Quarantine looks good on Rob Lowe! The actor and Literally! With Rob Lowe podcast host Zoomed with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday, July 28, and shared his lifestyle tips as well as how he gets his celeb pals to open up so much on his new podcast.
“I felt like it was a natural progression for me,” Rob shared of transitioning to the podcast world. “I was like, ‘Well, Ryan’s got every job already so I’m not going to get any of Ryan’s jobs … so what can I do in my own little home?’” he joked. “And it’s been awesome. The guests have been great; the stories have been great; it’s been as much fun just for me … I’m loving it!”
Some of the stories he’s covered already include chats with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Pratt, offering fans candid convos they can listen in from his safe space of a studio.
“Most of the people I have on the show are either people I’ve known for decades or people that I’ve wanted to meet or haven’t met yet and I just knew the conversations we would have would very much feel like private conversations that people weren’t in theory supposed to hear,” Rob shared. “Where people frankly forget they’re being interviewed.”
Rob added he doesn’t stick to the usual PR script either and doesn’t care what they’re promoting.
“And I’m a fan,” he added. “I think when you’re in the business as long as you and I both have been it's easy to get jaded. We’ve talked to everybody; we’ve seen everybody and I think the battle — and this is the same for anyone in any walk of life — is to stay curious,” he shared. “So it’s authentic. I’m legitimately interested … and I don’t ask them the same old stuff.”
Speaking of not asking the same old stuff, Ryan wanted to know what Rob’s been up to given he looks half his age.
“In all seriousness, and I’m in like my third year of working with Atkins, you’ve got to do low carbs. You’ve got to,” Rob admitted. “Carbs are great. We love them. Yum, yum, yummy! But they’re kind of the devil so high protein, low carbs … I’ve been eating that way forever.”
