Rob Lowe Blew His Knee Out Trying for the Lead in 'Footloose' (VIDEO)

Rob Lowe, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Thanks to the movie 'Footloose,' Rob Lowe may never dance again. But, Rob Lowe was never in 'Footloose,' you say? As he stated on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), he didn't even need to be in the movie for it to end his dance career.

Granted, he also said he was a terrible dancer, which begs the question of why he was so determined to try to do it for this film. Maybe move on and stick to what you're good at.

"I actually blew my meniscus in my knee out on the 'Footloose' auditions," Lowe said. He went on to relate how that story isn't nearly as impressive when trying to use it as a young actor to pick up girls, but Jimmy Kimmel wasn't having any of it.

"Wouldn't you just kind of just wave them into your bedroom?" he said. "It's over there. I'll be in in a few minutes."

I like Rob Lowe but Kevin Bacon is Footloose.

Footloose is one of my favorite 80's movies and I am so thankful that role "got away" from Rob Lowe. Kevin Bacon made it the iconic movie it is today. Besides, Lowe was suited more for the deaf mute he played in The Stand :)
