Rob Lowe

Who can forget Rob Lowe's notorious 1988 sex-tape scandal? Well, most of us now that he's built his career back up from the ashes. The actor (pictured on April 25 in NYC) was a beloved playboy back in the '80s -- known for turns in Brat Pack films like "The Outsiders," "Less Than Zero" and "St. Elmo's Fire." But following that '88 set tape -- which featured Lowe having sex with two women, one of whom was only 16 -- the heartthrob found his public image tarnished and had a tough go of it in the early '90s. He turned to television instead of film to rebuild his name, and did so successfully thanks to "The West Wing," "Brothers and Sisters" and, most recently, "Parks and Recreation." Still, Lowe is proud of his Brat Pack roots. "We should all be so lucky in our lives to create things that we're still talking about 25 years later," the actor, who documented his wild younger years in the memoir "Stories I Only Tell My Friends," told Vanity Fair in March 2011.
