Brooke Shields: ‘I was always considered the athletic one, that translated into big’

Health0118CovSubs-V1-768x1024 - Brooke Shields: ‘I was always considered the athletic one, that translated into big’

On accepting her body:

Well, for years, stylists insisted on bringing me sample [sizes]. Insisted! And then finally one day I said to my publicist, “I want you to tell them that unless they want to make me feel bad or make me cry”—because it’s slightly limiting and you feel it’s your fault—”then stop bringing me sample sizes!” Then the next thing they say is, “Oh, don’t worry! We’ll leave it all open in the back, and we can cut it.” I’m like, “That makes me feel so confident, with big clamps and things sewn into it.” I’m like, maybe I can act, but I’m not a magician! I was always considered the athletic one, and that translated into big. I was the big one. Thankfully, so many more body types are accepted these days.

She doesn’t deny herself foods:

We’ve been taught, “Deny yourself pleasure.” But moderation is harder because it requires really committing to balance. I find that if I say, “I’m not gonna eat ice cream” or “I’m not gonna drink,” all I want to do is drink and eat ice cream. It’s some kind of psychological battle. When I tell my trainer I had a glass of wine, he’ll say, “Liquid bread!” And I’m like, “Ugh, but it was a nice one.”

She’s trying to avoid back surgery:

I’ve had to enter into a very sort of rigorous rehabilitation program to avoid surgery on my back. I’ve already had four surgeries on my feet and two on my knee—all from Broadway dancing injuries. On Broadway, they don’t really rehab the dancers like they do in sports. It’s, “The show must go on.“ Maybe you’ll get five minutes with a physical therapist, or they’ll get someone to come in and tape you with kinesiology tape, which is what I sort of lived on for a long time.

… says 52 year-old Brooke in Health Magazine.

Vintage Beauties: Betty Brosmer

smallest-waist - Vintage Beauties: Betty Brosmer

At request, the return of our Vintage Beauties posts!

Name: Betty Brosmer and later, Betty Weider

Also known as: ‘The girl with the impossible waist”

Height: 5’5” / 165 cm

Age today: 81

Occupation: pin-up model, author, trainer

Also known for:

  • being the co-founder of Shape Magazine
  • being the wife of famous bodybuilder Joe Weider

Before the age of photo editing, Betty stood out with her unique proportions depicting an hourglass shape with an impossible waist, measuring only 18 inches / 46 cm. But although Betty’s shape was admired by many and the beautiful blonde had a great career as a pin-up model (and later as a trainer and author), there was a lot of speculation at the time (1950s-1960s) regarding the methods Betty used in order to achieve her hourglass shape. While some say that corset training played a role in transforming her body, others say that the model opted for a waist reduction surgery, a procedure that alters the shape of the ribcage (and moves internal organs in the process).

Mindy Kaling: “I don’t want my tombstone to stay ‘She hid her imperfections well on the red carpet'”

FFN_f_51337078 - Mindy Kaling: "I don’t want my tombstone to stay ‘She hid her imperfections well on the red carpet'"

On how she dresses for according to her body shape and weight:

“I love when your clothes can help you project that you’re witty – you know, when your outfit does some of the work for you. When I’m at my thinnest, I tend to wear things that don’t show off my body. But when I’m bigger, I’ll go body-con, which comes from a place of ‘This is my perimeter, in case you were wondering if I was actually much bigger. It’s really temping to not take changes. But I don’t want to be fearful. I don’t want my tombstone to stay ‘She hid her imperfections well on the red carpet.'”

… says Mindy in Vogue.
