Longtime friends Rob Lowe and Charlie Sheen used to compete to see who could party the hardest and still function on set the next day. Lowe recalls sharing some hard partying nights with the embattled star while the two filmed separate movies in New York City during the '80s.
Lowe tells Vanity Fair, "We competed to see who could play harder, then show up for work and still kick a**. The verdict: Charlie by a nose."
The "West Wing" actor also reveals some other fond memories of the "one-of-a-kind" star in his autobiography, admitting he always used to look up to Sheen when he was a struggling actor in Hollywood. He writes, "At my house we are still saving money by not buying desserts. At Charlie's house, it's never-ending Haagen-Dazs (ice-cream), brand-new BMWs, a lagoon pool with underwater tunnels, and a lit, professional-grade basketball half-court."
Ironically, Lowe has been mentioned as a replacement for Sheen in TV sitcom "Two and a Half Men". The actor was fired from the show earlier March 2011 after falling out with producers.
