Brooke Shields ran away ‘butt naked’ after losing her virginity to Superman actor Dean Cain

Brooke Shields recalls running away “butt naked” after losing her virginity to Superman actor Dean Cain.

The Endless Love actress, 57, spoke about the meeting in her new documentary Pretty Baby, in which she also muses on her days as a child actor and being sexualized at a young age in controversial nude film scenes.

Shields attended Princeton University in the 1980s and dated Dean, now 56, for about two years during that time.

Shields was an experienced actor at the time, having been in the films Pretty Baby, in which she plays a prostitute, and The Blue Lagoon, which was also controversial.

Dean was a professional football player before being bitten by the acting bug. Later, he co-starred in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman with Teri Hatcher in 1993.

“When we finally had sex, I immediately ran out of the room, ran down the hall butt naked, just running. I didn’t know where I was going,” she recalls in the documentary.

“He ran after me with the duvet and grabbed a hold of me and said ‘Where are you going?’ He said, ‘I’m not going anywhere, I’m not leaving you, you’re the same person’ he got it immediately and I just cried.”

She also explains how she was also confused by her own reaction to sex at the time, saying that she ‘felt bad for that girl’.

Shields says: “She was old enough to own her body for real and I just couldn’t get there at that moment.”

The People’s Choice Award winner has also stated that she regrets openly discussing her virginity in 1985 when she was branded “the most famous virgin in the world.”

Last November, during an episode of her podcast Now What? Brooke Shields, the Hollywood star admitted that she regrets sharing details about her own virginity in her 1985 book On Your Own when she was 20 years old.

“I think that it was, in hindsight, a bit of a mistake for me to be so open about my virginity because it never left me alone,” she said.

“I would get a lot of fan mail from kids saying, ‘Oh, my boyfriend’s pressuring me, and I don’t want to have sex. What do I do?’ My narrative was, ‘You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to’.”

Shields said she received ‘creepy‘ questions from older men after mentioning the material in her book.

She said: “To be in the line of fire at such a young age in that way, I gained a resilience, and it set me up to be ready for anything in this industry, which can be difficult.”
