Gwyneth Paltrow joined her longtime friend Rob Lowe on his Literally! With Rob Lowe in July 2020. The goop entrepreneur revealed that Rob Lowe’s wife, makeup artist Sheryl Berkoff, taught her “how to give a blow job” when she was a teenager.

“I met Sheryl when I was 15 or 16,” the 47-year-old Politician actress said. “She was doing my mom’s makeup on this TV movie, and I went down to visit. It was in Florida. I met Sheryl, and I was like immediately obsessed with her.”

“First of all, she was dating Keanu Reeves, who was my celebrity crush. And she was so cool,” Paltrow added.

“And she knew that I was sneaking cigarettes, and she would come smoke with me behind the trailer, and she taught me how to give a blow job, and you know, all the classic Sheryl stuff.”

“I just worshipped her. I thought she was literally the coolest chick of all time,” she said. Gwyneth clearly appreciated how Berkoff treated her like an adult.

“She was so awesome to me. And I was a high school kid. Like, the fact that she’s loved me that much before I was anyone or anything, you know?”

“It was less about remembering the technique — although I’m sure that I implemented it the first chance I got,” Paltrow said without sharing any specifics.

“It was so cool to have someone treat me like an adult and see me as like a young woman and someone who is sexual. She just made me feel so free,” Paltrow explained.

When growing up, she didn’t have conversations about sex with her parents, actress Blythe Danner and film producer-director Bruce Paltrow.

“I had met my now wife, Sheryl, and was attempting my first try at monogamy — which was not really in my nature at the time — and I wasn’t able to do it. It made me examine how I was living my life. That led me to getting sober, which led me to changing my life — giving me everything I now have,” Rob Lowe told Haute Living in September 2014.

She was a make-up artist at the time and now runs her own business called Sheryl Lowe Jewelry️. Rob and Sheryl have two sons named Matthew Edward Lowe (b. 1993) and John Owen Lowe (b. 1995).

“Well, listen, we would never have been drawn to each other if she wasn’t a great sport and didn’t have amazing perspective, and she continues to have that to this day. She’s very secure with herself, and that makes it easy for me to go about and do what I do, and sometimes my work calls me to hop into a bed and kiss a pretty girl,” Rob Lowe told The Guardian in 2009.
