Rob Lowe and his sons are diving into the paranormal.
While promoting his new A&E reality docuseries, The Lowe Files, the Parks and Recreation star says in a new interview that while shooting the show -- where Lowe and his sons travel around the country investigating myths and paranormal mysteries -- he found himself up close and personal with one of the most prolific urban legends: Bigfoot.
"We had an incredible encounter with what locals call the wood ape, which is in the Ozark Mountains. I’m fully aware that I sound like a crazy, Hollywood kook right now," the 53-year-old actor confesses to EW. "A wood ape is the local vernacular for a Sasquatch or a Bigfoot."
"Based on my experiences on the show, particularly around ghosts — absolutely. We captured some incredible [footage]," he explains. "Nothing is staged, nothing is trick-cut — no B.S. I believe there are probably ghosts out there. The rest of [what we found I accepted on a] case-by-case basis."
An admitted fan of paranormal reality shows, Lowe says that what sets The Lowe Files apart is how his interest in the supernatural is not actually based in total belief, but rather, in liking the idea of a kind of spooky world.
"People always ask me what my guilty pleasure is on television, and my guilty pleasures are Ancient Aliens and Finding Bigfoot. I don’t hate-watch them, but I also don’t watch them as a total believer. I watch them hoping to believe, because a world in which Bigfoot exists and aliens exist, to me, is more interesting and fun. That’s the spirit of our show," Lowe shares. "My boys and I were going to do this on our own and film it with our little cameras for a laugh. At one point I said, I bet someone will buy this and put it on the air."
Sounds like some freaky fun!
The Lowe Files premieres on Wednesday, Aug. 2 on A&E.
