Rob Lowe Addressed Those Rumors About His Crazy Demands For A Personal Assistant

Written by

In case you missed it, TMZ recently published an alleged job posting for a personal assistant to Rob Lowe, and it had some very specific, very odd requirements.

The alleged requirements include keeping Rob fed and caffeinated, scheduling a haircut for every episode he shoots, traveling to set to be his “body man,” and being able to lift 25 pounds as required, among other demands.

So, naturally, Jimmy Kimmel took the opportunity to grill Rob Lowe about the posting, and you know what? Rob’s a pretty good sport about the whole thing.

Jimmy brought the list to Rob’s attention…

And while he did not explicitly confirm or deny that this list came from him or his team, he’s kind of into it.

When Jimmy brought up the whole “massage” thing again, Rob set the record straight.

To be clear, the assistant does not have to perform the massage, just ORDER the massage.

But…it would be okay if you had to massage him, right? I mean, there are worse jobs…
