One of the distinguishing features of Rob Lowe is the head full of dark hair he’s had since his days as a heartthrob in The Outsiders and St. Elmo’s Fire, and which he apparently will always have as long as it’s scientifically possible.

In a new interview, the star of the upcoming show Wild Bill on Britain’s ITV was asked about whether he was more vain than men across the pond. He joked that it was a “low bar” and brought up Prince William.

“Can we talk about William? I mean the future king of your country let himself lose his own hair!” Lowe told Britain’s The Telegraph newspaper. “So when I say British men set a very low bar… Honestly, one of the great traumatic experiences of my life was watching Prince William lose his hair.”

When the interviewer suggested how traumatic it must have been for the Duke of Cambridge, who’s just 36, Lowe, 55, continued, “But he’s going to be the f***ing king of England! And… there’s a pill! The first glimmer that a single hair of mine was going to fall out, I was having stuff mainlined into my f***ing veins. And that’s what I did for the next 30 years.”

Yahoo Entertainment has reached out to Lowe’s publicists for comment.

Twitter sounded off on Lowe’s words, pointing out that there are bigger issues going on right now in Britain and that Lowe is prioritizing the wrong things in life. A few mentioned the infamous 1988 sex tape of Lowe and an underage girl. (Lowe has said he assumed the girl was of age, because he met her at a nightclub.)

You get the idea.

Lowe was also a popular Twitter subject on Tuesday, because of his resemblance to another Rob, Los Angeles Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka.
