Rob Lowe is celebrating his birthday with a trip down memory lane.
The actor, who turned 57 on Wednesday, celebrated his special day by sharing a side-by-side photo to Instagram featuring a current photo of himself, and a throwback picture from his days as a teen heartthrob.
“18th birthday on the set of The Outsiders,” he wrote, indicating when the throwback image was from. “57th on the set of 911 Lonestar. In between have been amazing gifts professionally and personally.”
Lowe starred as Sodapop Curtis in “The Outsiders” in 1983 and the movie has remained one of his best-known roles.
These days, he’s starring in the Ryan Murphy-produced “9-1-1: Lone Star” as firefighter Owen Strand. The show is a spin-off of Fox’s popular “9-1-1.”
