Brooke Shields Biography
Brooke Shields was born in New York City in May of 1965. Her parents divorced when she was only 5 months old. Her mother often stated that she intended from the very beginning that her daughter be a star. She was 11 months old when she became the face of Ivory Soap. She began taking ballet, piano, and riding lessons when she was still quite young. Shields graduated from Dwight Englewood High School, then attended Princeton University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in French literature in 1987.
Shields was a successful child model for most of her life, so it only makes sense that she quickly made the transition to movies. She was 12 when played the part of a child prostitute in the movie Pretty Baby. Shields was the youngest model ever to appear on the cover of Vogue at only 14. Her most famous modeling gig is her ad for Calvin Klein jeans. Her most famous films are The Blue Lagoon (1980) and Endless Love (1981). The nude love scenes caused a scandal as Shields was still only 14. She later stated that the film used adult body doubles for those scenes. Shields has appeared in numerous television shows, commercials, and Broadway productions. She has made guest appearances on That 70’s Show, Two and a Half Men, and Nip/Tuck. She also appeared on Hannah Montana, then the television drama Lipstick Jungle.
Shields is also well-known for her personal life as well, dating John Travolta, Dodi Fayed, and Adnan Khashoggi. She was friends with singer Michael Jackson, who asked her to marry him several times. She married tennis star Andre Agassi but divorced in 1999, and married television writer Chris Henchy later that same year. The couple has two children and resides in a luxury estate in Manhattan, New York. Shields has talked publicly and written a book about her problems dealing with post-partum depression.
