According to reports, Lowe said, "I got a phone call from the president of ABC who said, 'You're getting too dark. Seriously, stay out of the sun.' I go, 'I'm not tanning. I'm active. I surf and I kayak.'"

"If you stand next to Calista Flockhart, anybody's going to look like (singer) Harry Belafonte. I wear (sunscreen) over my entire face and a hat that has a chin strap. I look like the biggest idiot."

If only we all had these problems...
