Washington: Rob Lowe has revealed to talk show host Oprah Winfrey that having the first ‘celebrity sex tape’ actually was a positive thing for him.

Lowe, 47, who is promoting his new autobiography ‘Stories I Only Tell My Friends’, said that the scandalous tape that surfaced in 1989 changed his life for the better.

"It ends up being the greatest thing that ever happened to me," Radar Online quoted him as telling Oprah.

"What it ends up doing is accelerating my alcohol stuff to where I finally get sober.

"I have been able to have the rest of my life, that I’m so blessed with, which has now been 20 years of sobriety," he added.

The book, which Lowe said he wrote in long hand by himself, is a "handbook for his children", revealing his personal struggles, rise to fame and inside details of his Hollywood lifestyle.
