Brooke Shields: “I’ve always believed I had a fat a**”

On why she’s always had insecurities:

‘My mother would get drunk and say, “Why don’t you move your fat a**?” So, I’ve always believed I had a fat a**. I modelled swimwear when I was 15, and even then, I didn’t think I had a swimsuit body. I was a cover girl, not a supermodel. I was neck-up – the face, the eyebrows – and I was always described as “athletic”, “not rail-thin”, “not a runway model”. Those messages, they seep into your consciousness.’

On raising two daughters:

‘[My daughters] are so much more mature than I was, so much more confident in their own bodies. They have the same stubbornness and strength that I do, but are more well-adjusted. I am jealous as all hell about that. But, of course, I created it.’

  1. So sad it’s hard enough to be a woman and then to have a mother causing even more insecurities. I don’t understand how a parent could want to make their child feel sad or insecure or harm them mentally I just do not get it.

    • methinks it stems from lack of self esteem and feeling that the child “ruined” their body… jealousy ensues at seeing the youthful body that they once had. my mom was a model in the 80s, has always had an ED (I have struggled with bulimia and anorexia), and to this day she tries to make calorie-talk with me or get on my bum about exercise/diet and such. it’s rancid the things that mothers do to children when their ego is tied up in something as trivial as a weight or dress size.
