Brooke Shields

“Want to know what gets between me and my Calvins? Nothing.” If you hadn’t heard from Brooke Shields before, this line from her Calvin Klein jeans ad had to grab your attention. Not that she didn’t have a noteworthy resume; she starred as a child prostitute in Pretty Baby and then the equally controversial hit Blue Lagoon. Given how difficult the transition is from child star to adult actor she has done remarkably well, earning a degree from Princeton University and a People’s Choice Award for her series Suddenly Susan. But it’s been through a public feud with Tom Cruise and her battle with depression following the birth of her daughter – about which she wrote a brutally honest book – that has kept her in the headlines recently. Lipstick Jungle was one recent success – this fall she’ll be starring in a new comedy Furry Vengeance.
