⭐️Meet a Mom Monday!!! ⭐️
Brooke Shields is one of those rare celebrities who has this innate ability to inspire women decade after decade, with her resilience, intelligence, and of course, natural beauty. Her career has endless highlights, from the 1980s hit Blue Lagoon to Suddenly Susan, which she received two Golden Globe nominations for during its 1996-2000 run. She’s conquered Broadway, in Grease, Cabaret, Wonderful Town, Chicago and, most recently, The Addams Family. But what has truly distinguished her was her courage to be one of the first celebrities to bring postpartum depression to light. Her book Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression, started a conversation about mental health that new moms so desperately needed. Then, when Tom Cruise publicly criticized her on the Today Show for taking antidepressants after the birth of her daughter, Rowan Francis, in 2003, she responded with an Op-Ed in The New York Times, calling his remarks “a disservice to mothers everywhere.”
Through her decades in show business, including a complicated childhood, she says she never wanted to be a victim. “By nature I’m a fighter. I just don’t want to be undone by something else or someone else,” she explains.
We were thrilled to chat with Brooke about her amazing outlook on life, aging and motherhood. Plus, details of her new project, Beginning is Now, an online community of women with inspiring, informative content and a digital shop, where you can find chic and comfortable athleisure wear. Don’t miss her on January 27 on Talk Shop Live at 1:30 pm!
