Brooke Shields is an American actress and model. Thanks to the kind of films she took up as a child actress and her glamorous career as a model, Brooke Shields became one of Hollywood’s most iconic personalities. Her mother, who was an actress, made sure Brooke Shields became a glamorous diva during her early teens. Though she started her career as a child model and actress, she ended up landing controversial roles early in her career; her role as a child prostitute at the age of 12 garnered widespread notoriety. During her teenage years, she became one of the most sought-after models apart from appearing in films and TV series. She was often featured in many leading magazines and became part of several marketing campaigns of popular brands. After successfully transitioning from a teenage star to an adult actress, Brooke Shields went on to establish herself as a popular TV star. One of her finest performances was delivered in the television sitcom ‘Suddenly Susan’ for which she received two ‘Golden Globe Award’ nominations. She was also nominated for two ‘Satellite Awards’ for her work in ‘Suddenly Susan.’
Brooke Shields’ portrayal of a child prostitute named ‘Violet’ in the film ‘Pretty Baby’ raised a furore. The following year, she starred in another film titled ‘Wanda Nevada.’ The film, which was directed by Peter Fonda, narrates the tale of ‘Wanda,’ played by Brooke Shields, and her dreams of singing at the ‘Grand Ole Opry.’
Along with acting in movies, Brooke Shields went on to become a well-known model by the time she was a teenager. In 1980, she starred in the film ‘Blue Lagoon’ which remains the most famous movie of her career. The film made her an overnight star. Although there was some controversy regarding the nude scenes, Shields later admitted that body doubles were used
In 1981, Brooke Shields starred in a romantic film titled ‘Endless Love.’ Though the film was initially given an X-rating, the producers of the film decided to edit it so that an R-rating could be obtained. The film was successful and Shields won many awards, becoming one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood.
Shields is also a popular TV star. Her first TV appearance was at the age of 15 when she played a role on ‘The Muppet Show.’ In 1996, she was cast in a major role in the series ‘Suddenly Susan’ and her work was praised by the critics. Shields also made several guest appearances in some of the leading shows of the 1990s and early 2000s like ‘Friends,’ ‘That 70s Show,’ and ‘Two and a Half Men.’
In 2007, she made a guest appearance on the TV show ‘Hannah Montana.’ In 2008, she was cast in the show ‘Lipstick Jungle,’ but the show ended soon after.
In 2010 and 2012, she made guest appearances in the show ‘The Middle.’ In 2012, she was also featured in the American genealogy documentary series ‘Who do you think you Are?’ in which it was revealed that she is a distant cousin of King Louis XIV of France.
She has appeared in many television shows like ‘The Michael J. Fox Show,’ ‘When Calls the Heart,’ ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,’ ‘Jane the Virgin,’ and ‘Murphy Brown.’
