Rob credits Moore for inspiring to get sober
Los Angeles: Actor Rob Lowe is thanking Demi Moore for helping him get sober as the actor recounts her own struggles with substance abuse in her new memoir, Inside Out.
The actor, 55, spoke about Moore while on The View on September 30, saying his St. Elmo's Fire co-star "was the first person I ever knew who got sober", reports people.com.
"She was a huge inspiration to me. It was the 80s, we were all doing our thing. I just remember thinking, 'if that girl can get sober, anybody can'," he said.
Lowe, who has been sober for 29 years, said: "Everybody has that person in their life where they go, 'That's a great example'. So it was very helpful."
He also said that he "loved rehab", explaining it gave him "answers that I didn't have" about life.
"It was like going to school to learn how to live your life with tools that nobody ever taught me. Here's one of the great ones I learned: Never compare your insides to someone else's outsides'.
