Rob Lowe Denies Getting Plastic Surgery, Talks Friendship with Charlie Sheen

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Rob Lowe turned 50 earlier this year and seemingly hasn't aged a bit since launching his career in the late 1970s, but that doesn't mean the actor has gone under the knife.

"I’d like to think that, if I had work done -- which I haven’t -- I wouldn’t be coy about it," he admits in the July issue of Cigar Aficionado. "I’m just a product of good genetics and taking care of myself."

Lowe says he's enjoying getting older. "The key in the middle of life is to become more and more curious about life, instead of less," he explained. "Because it’s a slippery slope: If you don’t engage, the next thing you know, you’re the guy saying, ‘Get off my lawn!’”

In his wide-ranging interview with Cigar Aficionado, which hits newsstands June 24, Lowe also spoke about his friendship with reported neighbor, Charlie Sheen.

"I love him, even though he hates sobriety," Lowe said. "We spar over all kinds of things. There’s no funnier, smarter, more enjoyable raconteur than Charlie."

Lowe has overcome his own struggles with sobriety, cleaning up in 1990. Still, he doesn't mind that Sheen has his own opinions. "I love him when he rants about why people in AA are idiots. I admire him living the life of his choosing."

Lowe said turning to cigars helped him in his road to recovery. "You’re looking for new ways to bond, to be social, to be out amongst people. For me, in the early days, that meant playing golf and smoking cigars," Lowe explained.
