Rob Lowe loves his sex tape.
Though it caused a massive scandal for the former teen heartthrob when it was leaked in 1989 – primarily because one of the women featured was revealed to be just 16 years old – Lowe said he now recognizes it as a much-needed turning point in his life.
“It ends up being the greatest thing that ever happened to me,” he said on Thursday’s “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
“Because what it ends up doing is accelerating sort of my alcohol stuff to where I finally get sober,” Lowe explained, “and have been able to have the rest of my life that I’m so blessed with, which is now 20 years of sobriety.”
“I don’t think any of it happens without [the video],” he added. . .
