Brooke Shields opened up to Health Magazine about her biggest health regret and that is waiting to lose her virginity.
Q: What’s your biggest health regret?
A: Not learning to love the way I looked earlier. And I think I would have had sex a lot earlier! [Laughs.] I think I would have lost my virginity earlier than I did at 22. I had the public and all this pressure, and I wish I had just gotten it over with in the beginning when it was sort of OK. I think I would have been much more in touch with myself. I think I wouldn’t have had issues with weight—I carried this protective 20 pounds [in college]. It was all connected. And to me, that’s a health regret.
If Brooke Shields, looking the way she did, had problems with way she looked, teen girls should look up to her and say none of us like how we look but we should get over it!I am not saying teen girls should lose their virginity at a younger age (they should do that when they are ready) but they should feel more comfortable in their skin.
She also talked about the day Tom Cruise and her made up after he went off on her for taking medicine to get through her postpardum depression.
Q: What happened the day Tom Cruise came over to apologize?
A: [Tom] called an hour ahead and said, “Can I?” And I was like, “Uhhh … am I being Punk’d?” I called my husband, I called my publicist, I was like, “What do I do?” I did think, Do we use the front door? because we always use the kitchen door. It’s one of those weird things where I was like, “We need to use the front door!” I had to lock the other door and pull the shade down. I was so relieved when my husband came home and started cooking. And when Katie brought the baby over, it just got defused and we looked at these two babies born on the same day in the same hospital. The irony is insane. But just to look at these babies, [I thought] Really? Life’s short. Let’s just eat an omelet, and we’ll all live our lives and be thankful we have these little people.
