From "The Independent" :

The real people being discriminated against, says Rob Lowe, are the good looking ones.

The actor, who last played the effeminate plastic surgeon Dr. Startz to Michael Douglas’ Liberace in Behind The Candelabra (2013), told The New York Times magazine recently that being attractive made it "much harder" to get by in the entertainment industry.

"There's this unbelievable bias and prejudice against quote-unquote good-looking people, that they can't be in pain or they can't have rough lives or be deep or interesting," he said.

"They can't be any of the things that you long to play as an actor. I'm getting to play those parts now and loving it. When I was a teen idol, I was so goddamn pretty I wouldn't have taken myself seriously."
