Beautiful Survivor: Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields

Beautiful Survivor: Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields

Warning: major gushing ahead! In this episode, I'm taking a look at the new two-part documentary Pretty Baby, all about the life and career of Brooke Shields. I think it's safe to say she was my first girl crush, and I still adore her. She's had a charmed but often difficult life, full of exploitation and some abuse, and has come out on the other side with her intelligence, sense of humor and groundedness intact. She's a survivor, and for that I admire the hell out of her. CW: emotional trauma, abuse of power, alcoholism, sexual assault.

Brooke Shields tells Vogue the story behind her iconic 1980s Calvin Klein Jeans ad campaign.

Yes it's corny but I really enjoyed Suddenly Susan

How I loved and adored Lipstick Jungle and will never get over its cancellation. Never!

Brooke Shields' book, Down Came the Rain, is about her experience with postpartum depression. She has also written a memoir about her relationship with her alcoholic mother, and some children's books.

Just take a look at all of the acting roles this woman has done in her life!
