Rob Lowe On Fake Teeth & Becoming JFK

It's hard to think of anyone dreamier than Rob Lowe, but John F. Kennedy just might be the guy. Okay, sure, Rob's got the chiseled jaw and nice-guy image down pat, but it's hard to argue with that presidential mystique. So, when 20th Century Fox set out to make Killing Kennedy, a flick about the first couple's often tumultuous life, Lowe was the perfect fit.
He took on the task of playing Kennedy — alongside Ginnifer Goodwin as the legendary Jackie O. — with the fervor and determination we normally reserve for things like getting the last available ticket to a Jay Z concert. The result was practically spot-on, but Rob's portrayal didn't come without some hard work — and one crack makeup team. In addition to filling out said chiseled jaw, the actor had to sport a set of Hollywood veneers (yep, fake teeth). Of course, being Rob Lowe, he took it all in stride.
