Brooke Shields

Christa Brooke Camille Shields (born May 31, 1965) is an American actress, born in New York City, New York, USA. She achieved early fame as a child actress, and by her teens was one of the most photographed and recognized models in the world. She attended Princeton University from 1983 to 1987, graduating with a degree in French literature.

Shields' career started among much ballyhoo over her appearance in French director Louis Malle's Prettychrista brooke camille shields Baby, a movie in which she played a child living in a brothel (and in which there were numerous nude scenes). Because she was only 12 when the film was released, and possibly 11 when it was filmed, questions were raised about child pornography.

After two decades of movies, her best-known films are still arguably The Blue Lagoon (1980) (which included more nude scenes, but Shields later testified before a Congressional inquiry that older body doubles were used in some of them), and Endless Love (1981), both made near the beginning of her career.

Shields, who developed a strong sense of comic timing as her acting career advanced into adulthood, has played in a number of television productions, the most successful being the series Suddenly Susan.

She was married from 1997 to 1999 to professional tennis player, Andre Agassi. Since 2001 she has been married to Christopher Thomas Henchy: they are parents of one daughter, Rowan Francis, born in 2003.

She won the People's Choice Award in the category of Favorite Young Performer in four consecutive years from 1981 to 1984 and more than a decade later she won again in the category of Favorite Female Performer in a New Television Series in 1997.

Her parents are the late Francis Alexander Shields who married Brooke´s mother, Maria Theresia Schmonin, in 1964. Her paternal grandparents are Francis Xavier Shields, (a tennis star), and Italian princess Donna Marina Torlonia di Civitella-Cessi. One interesting fact to note is that her legs are insured by Lloyd's of London.
