Hollywood star Brooke Shields landed her first lead role at age 11.

Shields was adored by young men across the country throughout the 1980s.

But Brooke Shields just revealed one truth about her life that most women refuse to accept.

11-year-old Brooke Shields began her acting career in 1978 with the leading role in the film Pretty Baby.

Shields played a little girl named Violet who lived at a brothel where her mother, played by Susan Sarandon, worked.

Her career blossomed throughout the 1980s as both an actor and one of America’s most sought-after supermodels.

By the time she turned 16, Shields had one of the most recognizable faces in the entire United States.

According to TIME Magazine, her day rate as a model was $10,000, which is the equivalent of $32,189 in 2022 dollars.

Shields continues her acting career today at age 58.

In 2017, she played a recurring role in NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Last year, director Lana Wilson, who directed Taylor Swift’s documentary, produced a documentary about Shields called, Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields.

During a recent interview with AARP Magazine, Shields opened up about the difficulties of growing up as a beautiful female actor.

“Beauty, now, to me, means freedom,” she said. “Beauty isn’t as precious, in the same way, that it was when I was a kid.”

“When I was younger, it was a burden and a responsibility,” she continued. “Everything was precious.”

Shields admitted to being impacted by watching her own documentary.

“The Pretty Baby documentary definitely empowered me,” Shields said. “I had never seen my life in its entirety. It made me feel very proud of my resilience and that little girl. I would be shocked as a kid to know that there would come a time that I would feel like I was enough. I would be shocked if I knew that I would one day really be confident and like myself.”

She said the hardest part was everyone expecting her to stay young and beautiful forever.

“You can’t grow up, you cannot age,” she said. “It’s disappointing to them that I don’t have the same face I had when I was 16.”

Shields called trying to stay beautiful an exhaustive task.

“The pressure of being skinny is just so exhausting,” she said. “I like food, and I like tequila!”

Ultimately, she had to learn to accept one truth that many women have a hard time with.

“At a certain age, you have to choose between your face and your a**,” she said.
