Rob Lowe is doing his part to help the devastation in Montecito, California. The 53-year-old actor appeared on Thursday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he talked to his neighbor, DeGeneres, about the destruction in their California town.
“It’s been a really difficult week. The sadness, I can’t get beyond it,” Lowe admitted.
“I think people who live there, we kind of are holding onto each other,” DeGeneres, who has also spoken to neighbor Oprah Winfrey about the disaster on the show, said.
There are 20 dead and three still missing in Montecito with 179 homes destroyed and more than 200 homes damaged.
Lowe explained that his son, Matthew, stayed behind the night of the mudslide as they were only under voluntary evacuation.
