Do you know who Sheryl Berkoff is?
Perhaps not many people would know Sheryl Berkoff if she wasn’t married to the world famous, award-winning actor, producer and director Rob Lowe. Sheryl was born Sheryl Lynn Berkoff at 20e June 1961, under the constellation of Gemini, in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Sheryl was a makeup artist and has worked on more than 30 major films since 1985, such as “Frankie and Johnny” and “Eve of Destruction” in 1991, “Glengarry Glen Ross” in 1992 and “Ghost in the Machine” in 1993. Her last make up job was on the set of a 2012 episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” – a documentary from the TV series, which also featured her husband, Rob. Her fame has earned her numerous TV appearances in her own right, as well as those where she was accompanied by her husband.
Since 2007, Sheryl has been running a successful jewelry business, Sheryl Lowe Jewelry.
Sheryl was raised by a single mother and her grandmother and lived in Southern California. She studied Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising from 1980 to 1982.
Sheryl Berkoff’s Marriage and Family
While working as a make-up artist in the 1980s, she met Rob. At the time, she was in a relationship with his friend, the actor Emilio Estevez – Rob and Emilio were both members of what was known as the ’80s actors’ “Brat Pack.” Sheryl and Rob went on a blind date in 1983 and did not reunite until 1989 on the set of the movie “Bad Influence”, on which Sheryl worked as a makeup artist.
Rob remembers their first date, with plenty of margaritas and nachos at Lucy’s El Adobe, a Mexican restaurant across from Paramount Studios. He thought Sheryl was very beautiful and says it was a very successful date.
They married two years later at 22nd July 1991. They’re still together, and in all likelihood seem to be going strong as they approach their 30se anniversary next year – quite a milestone in Hollywood terms! Sheryl and Rob have two sons – Edward Matthew Lowe born in 1993 and John Owen Lowe born in 1995, both of whom are Stanford University graduates.
The family loves dogs and traveling. They traveled together a lot as the boys grew up, fueling Matthew’s (as he prefers to be called) passion as a photographer.
Up Instagram page, with more than 80,000 followers, he calls himself an “ocean addict” because he loves diving. The younger brother, John, who also makes music and writes, already has 165,000 Instagram followers.
Both young men have done some acting work, for example “The Lowe Files”, in which they explore the US with their father Rob, investigating mysteries and unusual phenomena. They have also been featured in several TV interviews and reality shows. John completed his studies at Duke University in 2019, plays music and writes screenplays etc. Matthew is a licensed attorney and when he graduated from Loyola Law School in 2019, John posted, ‘Two brothers, two futures. One will uphold constitutional values, the other may one day win a Teen Choice Award. Really solid stuff from both of us.”

About Sheryl Berkoff’s husband, Rob Lowe in brief
Rob Hepler Lowe is now 56 years old, born on 17e March 1964 in Charlottesville, Virginia, and later moved to Santa Monica in Southern California. His parents were Chuck (a litigator) and Barbara Lowe (a retired teacher). His younger brother Chad is also an actor and was married to actress Hilary Swank from 1997 to 2007.
Rob received a Golden Globe Award as a supporting actor in the TV movie “Thursday’s Child” in 1983, and went on to star in many films during the “Brat Pack” era, including “The Outsiders” and “St Elmo’s Fire.” . .
In 1988, Rob was involved in a sex tape scandal involving an underage woman in Georgia, followed by another segment of the tape filmed in Paris where Rob and a friend had sex with a young American model, who was then sold as one of the earliest celebrity sex tapes available.
This negatively affected his career and he retired to Santa Barbara, California. There he overcame his drug and alcohol addiction, which Sheryl says helped him through. He then cut his ties with the “Brat Pack” and focused on being a family man.
He appeared on television again as Sam Seaborn in “The West Wing”, a political drama that aired from 1999 to 2003, a role that earned him a Primetime Emmy Award nomination and two Golden Globe Awards. Since then, Rob has acted in a long list of movies and TV series, such as the movie ‘The Invention of Lying’ and the series ‘Parks and Recreation’ and ‘West Wing’. Most recently, the TV series “9-1-1 Lone Star”, launched on 19e January 2020 and the first season ends on 9e March, and for which his son John wrote part of the script.

The series is about a firefighter who strives to save lives, and as Rob tweeted at 13e April, “I can’t wait to share more stories about our heroic rescuers. Now more than ever. See you this fall!’
Not only is Rob a famous actor and producer, but he is also a published author. In 2011 his book titled “Stories I Only Tell My Friends” came out, and in 2014 another book called “Love Life”. He has also promoted several brands and bought Miramax in 2010 in collaboration with other investors, but it doesn’t stop there. In 2015, he also launched a line of skin care products for men under the banner of “Profile”. His latest venture in April 2020 is the launch of his podcast, “Literally with Rob Lowe”, which will feature candid conversations with his famous friends and other famous personalities.
The saga of the nanny trials
It seems hard for famous people to escape scandal, and the Lowes are no exception. A 25-year-old nanny who had worked for them charged Rob with 12 counts of sexual harassment and labor law violations. Another babysitter was charged with spreading “malicious lies.” Yet another had romantic intent on Rob, claiming he had been harassing her and they had been in an intimate relationship, also claiming Sheryl was an abusive boss. Rob filed separate lawsuits against all of them in April 2008, along with his claims against a former chef who had breached his employment contract by engaging in unsavory activities on their property at their expense, and because the chef had told other people that Sheryl is heartless and cold.
In June 2008, the judge dismissed two of the allegations for insufficient legal grounds, then in May 2009 all other lawsuits were dismissed at the request of both parties. When asked how Sheryl managed to stand by him through it all, Rob tells reporters that Sheryl is safe and confident.
The Lowes as philanthropists
From a more positive angle, the Lowes have always believed in paying up front. A portion of Sheryl’s jewelry income is currently donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which is dedicated to breast cancer support and research. She also participated in the “Commitment to Life IV: Los Angeles AIDS Project Benefit” in 1990. Rob is also a supporter of breast cancer organizations as he suffered a personal loss with his great-grandmother, grandmother and his mother all dying as a result of this disease.

Five percent of every product sold in its “Profile” range goes to the Wounded Warrior Project. The family lives in Santa Barbara, and Rob is also a founding member of the local Homeowner’s Defense Fund for land use control and planning.
Sheryl has one private Instagram account, and her Sheryllowe Jewelry account has almost 50,000 followers. She is less active on her Twitter account, with only 2,000 followers. Sheryl’s sons, Matthew and John, have a huge following on social media.
Rob, as famous as he is, has a huge social media presence with over 320,000 followers on it Facebook (although his last post there was March 2019), 1.4 million on Instagram and 1.6 million further Twitter. The family often compliments each other on social media.
Rob has often referred to Sheryl as his “beautiful wife,” and her sons have expressed their admiration for her and their father’s accomplishments. It can be clearly seen that both parents are very proud of their sons and vice versa.
How much is Sheryl Berkoff worth?
With the Lowes’ ever-growing fame and numerous business ventures, one can imagine that their combined net worth would run into the millions. Would the claims be true that Sheryl has a net worth of $19 million in her right? Well, we know as quoted by verified sources, which her husband Rob is worth close to the impressive sum of $60 million. The Lowes overcame the challenges they faced together, and Sheryl’s strength of character and unwavering support for her husband is what got them through it. It is remarkable to see what can be achieved and that it is possible to overcome adversity.
