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.

p~~~ is so normalized, they can even take a sporty picture of a mature a$$ woman without exposing her open crotch. WTF

Pussy is normal.Sexualizing human body in every possible way while it is a lot more than just sexuality is not.

Female body, not “human body”. Objectification is NOT a “sexuality”.

Male or female.Genitalias are part of human body just like arms and legs.There is nothing abnormal about them.

weird to think she was considered larger. She was always tall – 6ft before 6 ft was common for models as it is today, but you know her body in “Blue Lagoon” – is very slim. Hard to think of the disconnect

She’s so beautiful and coherent, I love it. Absolutely agree that forbidding yourself from eating or drinking something is only going to make you want it more. I gave up gluten a few months ago but I always said that if one day I find myself craving some pastry or something I’m just going to go ahead and have it. So far I only did that once, while I’m sure that had I gone into it with a “I absolutely can’t” mindset I would be stuffing my face less than 24h later.

No, that’s a bulimic/anorexic mindset, nothing else.
