As Brooke Shields considers why her mother permitted her to participate in intimate scenes when she was just 11 years old, she breaks down.
Since she appeared in an Ivory Soap commercial when she was just 11 months old, the 57-year-old actress has been in the spotlight almost since birth.
She later went on to start modeling as a child before switching to a career in film.
Shields has since remembered one of her earlier roles, though.

Shields has long disavowed responsibility for her mother’s actions in permitting Shields to pose in a playboy magazine at the age of 10.
Shields didn’t feel comfortable talking about how uncomfortable she was until her mother passed away in 2012.

Shields appeared in the movies Blue Lagoon and Endless Love shortly after Pretty Baby, which contained intimate and nude sequences.
She was the youngest cover model of Vogue when she adorned its cover at the age of 14.
Then, at age 15, she appeared as a model in a contentious Calvin Klein Jeans advertisement with the provocative tagline: “You want to know what comes between me and my Calvin’s? Nothing.”
