Brooke Shields was one of the original child stars who came with an OSM (Overbearing Stage Mom). OSM Teri Shields managed to scandalize the world when she pimped out 12-year-old Shields in “Pretty Baby,” featuring her as a child prostitute, complete with adolescent nude scenes.
She followed this with lots more sex and innuendo on film in movies such as “Blue Lagoon” and “Endless Love” and in risque Calvin Klein ads that implied 15-year-old Shields went “commando” in her jeans and she wanted everyone to know it.
Shields’ OSM did draw the line somewhere though, right at her eyebrows. She deemed her overt sex symbol of a daughter too young to pluck. Seriously. Shields was also quite outspoken about her virginity until the age of 22. Because, if Hollywood is nothing else, it’s definitely hypocritical. Here she is being all articulate and charming at only 16. She is absolutely beautiful:
Despite this completely public and messed up upbringing, Shields managed to grow into a well-balanced, successful actress, business woman, and mother. Which brings us to her most famous nude scenes on film.
We debated about putting up her Pretty Baby pictures because Brooke was so young in it but thought it would not be fair. After all, we’ve already put up her co-star Susan Sarandon’s nude scenes and the film itself isn’t currently banned anywhere. The uncut version was even released on DVD in 2006. In Roger Ebert’s words:
“Pretty Baby” has been attacked in some quarters as child porn. It’s not. It’s an evocation of a time and a place and a sad chapter of Americana…And Shields really creates a character here; her subtlety and depth are astonishing. (source)
And while she was awesome in Blue Lagoon, we think Milla Jovovich did equally well in the sequel Return to Blue Lagoon. Must be the teen nudity.
