Rob Lowe has spoken out after being slammed for poking fun at Prince William and his receding hairline in an interview with the Daily Telegraph.
Lowe, 55, insisted “British men set a low bar” as he spoke to the newspaper about his own hair loss.
The actor said, “Can we talk about William? The future king of your country let himself lose his hair!”
“Honestly, one of the great traumatic experiences of my life was watching Prince William lose his hair. He’s going to be the f**king king of England!” he added, according to the Daily Mail.
Lowe, who is currently starring in the ITV drama “Wild Bill”, continued to say of his own experience: “And there’s a pill! The first glimmer that a single hair of mine was going to fall out, I was having that stuff mainlined into my veins. And that’s what I did for the next 30 years.”
Social media users were quick to criticize Lowe for making the remarks. See some of the response below.
Lowe then appeared on Wednesday’s “Good Morning Britain”, telling Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan of the remarks: “This is my thing. I saw the hubbub it caused on your side of the pond. I think it’s a case of two countries divided by a common language. Because that was literally me slagging my own insecurity and narcissism.
“He’s a stud, I love him. He’s awesome.”
His latest interview comes after he spoke to Men’s Health magazine about his desire to look good at all times.
He shared, “Men deny having vanity — that’s the greatest vanity. Not me. I’m vain as f**k.”
