Brooke Shields was one of the most controversial breakout stars of the 80’s. Her film debut in Pretty Baby was followed up by the polarizing classic Blue Lagoon, a film that would cement Shields’ iconic status as a young, child actress. During her teenage years, she was a print and high-fashion model and in all honesty, we completely understand why. Who else could pull off a pair of eyebrows like those? In 1983, she put her modeling and acting career on hold to get her Bachelor’s Degree from Princeton University in Romance Languages but triumphantly returned to the entertainment industry before ringing in the new decade.

These days, Brooke Shields has a lot on her plate. Not only is she a successful film and tv star, she’s married to her second husband and together, they’re raising two daughters. Brooke is currently the spokeswoman for Tupperware’s Chain of Confidence SMART Girls and continues to act, although, very seldom. Her most memorable credits include Suddenly Susan, Freeway, Black and White, and The Disenchanted Forest.
