Brooke Shields's Biography

On the glossy, slick surface of things, it seems that actress and model Brooke Shields has led a life of privilege and success with few problems. Considered one of the great beauties and sex symbols of our time, Shields has consistently courted the image of herself as the girl with the “right” morality (remember how publicly Shields spoke out about virginity and cigarette smoking?) and the all-American girl next door. As an actress, Shields managed to portray a highly sexualized young girl in the film <b>Pretty Baby</b> without tarnishing her lily white, so-pure-it-floats image and more, Shields possesses that rare beauty that seems effortless; that comes of good-breeding and chance. And while anyone else with those bushy dark eyebrows may look simply under-groomed or inelegant, on Shields they became part of her signature look, even lending a sexiness that simply didn’t work on most others. And more, whatever she did, whether it was modeling or acting or being interviewed, Shields always seemed to have it all figured out: she was always poised and whatever role she happened to be playing, she played it convincingly, even in The Blue Lagoon, which would have been rather insipid in most ways were it not for Shield’s performance which made it seem almost conceivable that this beautiful, lithe long-haired girl lived a life of bliss and fist love, her long lithe (and nude) body slipping through the depths of the aqua water.

True, this was not initially a life Shields chose for herself. It was her mother who started Brooke in modeling when she was not even a year old. After that, it seemed her life was a non-stop string of advertisements and films, most of which were reasonably successful, while became cult classics, like Pretty Baby, starring Susan Sarandon as the mother and Brooke as the precocious young prostitute.. And who can forget the pubescent Brooke, reclining, back arched, her denim-clad legs out-stretched, one lifted provocatively above the other, her long hair flowing, her blue-blue eyes highlighted by those bushy, trademark eyebrows (that would have looked ridiculous on most people). It was this advertisement for Calvin Klein jeans and Brooke’s simple line – <i>Nothing comes between me and my Calvin’s</i> – that cemented Shield’s role as both sex symbol and perpetual virgin: it was a contradiction that few actresses have been able to pull off (though Natalie Portman comes to mind here as one who has proven herself more than capable in similar roles).
