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.’

… says Brooke in PorterEdit.

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.


She ages so beautifully.
