Rob Lowe visits 'The View': Talks 9/11, sobriety, 'Stories I Only Tell My Friends'
Lowe was on to talk about his new book, "Stories I Only Tell My Friends," but when asked about his reaction to the news of Osama Bin Laden's death, Lowe shared a story about unknowingly flying on one of the 9/11 hijackers dry-run flights (he was in D.C. filming "The West Wing") just days before the attack.
"I make the flight a lot -- I didn't really think anything of it," said Lowe. "Don't remember anything in particular. Nobody looked scary. Nobody looked like a terrorist."
Knowing that a good story never gets too stale, Sherri Shepherd made sure to ask Lowe about that 1988 sex scandal. But Lowe made lemonade out of lemons and said the incident -- in which he was taped having sex with two women, one underage -- was one of the best things that ever happened to him.
"It began that process when I began questioning what the heck I was doing with my life and it led to me getting sober," said Lowe. "And I'll be sober 21 years this week."
