Rob Lowe stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Tuesday, where he shared a hilarious story about legendary pop artist Andy Warhol.

“It was one of those restaurants where you could draw on the tables with crayons,” Lowe recalled. “He's like, so let's all draw in secret, so no one can look at what we're drawing, the best version we can think of a p****.”
Despite a 36-year age gap, Lowe and Warhol were good friends until the artist’s death in 1987. But that didn't stop the actor from falling for Warhol's little prank.

“I draw like a gynecological out of the "Joy of Sex" version. I show mine, the other person shows, we get to Andy, he reveals it…of course he's drawn a cat.” “A cat, yeah.” “I feel ashamed and embarrassed.”

Original Warhol art sells for millions of dollars and some images have become as iconic as the artist himself. Which is why Lowe really regretted not snatching the signed drawing after dinner.

“I was too young and wasn't bold enough,I wanted to take it,” Lowe said. “An Andy Warhol was sitting on that table and I was too young and scared and naive to take it.”

Do you think the bus boy got it?” Asked Kimmel.

“I heard, and he talks about it in "The Andy Warhol Diaries," Lowe admitted. “I heard that it sold about ten years ago for $1.5 million.”
