Money Q&A with Rob Lowe

Rob Lowe's new memoir, "Stories I Only Tell My Friends," is most impressive for its account of Lowe's prestigious lifelong cadre of friends. Over the course of a career that has taken him from the Brat Pack to "The West Wing," and now to one of the funniest shows on television, NBC's "Parks and Recreation," Lowe has partied with stars from Andy Warhol to Charlie Sheen, and his memoir spares none of the dirty details.

How did you support yourself back in your struggling actor days?

Oh, gosh. I was fired from every job I ever had other than anything in the entertainment industry. When you can't keep a job as a busboy at the Nantucket Light in Malibu, (Calif.), or as the projectionist at the Malibu Cinema, you know you have some issues.

At the Malibu Cinema, I threaded the projector backward. At Nantucket Light, they didn't like that I was eating mud pie out of the walk-in freezer. So I had some issues in the real job market.
