Actor Rob Lowe has been involved in some brilliant comedy movies and comedy series in the past, such as Wayne’s World and Parks and Rec. He has a funny story, too, about a time he seriously thinks he met bigfoot during production of a TV series a few years back.

The Lowe Files, a reality show hosted by the man himself, saw Lowe roaming America in search of various weird stories and unravelling a range of mysteries. Sounds fun, right? Well, not for Lowe, when he apparently encountered a real-life Bigfoot.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Lowe revealed all about the spooky situation and also talked a little about ghosts. Totally normal conversation coming up.

When asked if he now believes in ghosts, Lowe said: “Based on my experiences on the show, particularly around ghosts — absolutely. We captured some incredible [footage]. Our first episode is about poltergeists in one of the most notoriously haunted structures in America. Nothing is staged, nothing is trick-cut — no B.S. I believe there are probably ghosts out there.”

“The rest of [what we found I accepted on a] case-by-case basis, but we had an incredible encounter with what locals call the wood ape, which is in the Ozark Mountains. I’m fully aware that I sound like a crazy, Hollywood kook right now,” he added. “I was lying on the ground thinking I was going to be killed.”
