Brooke Shields, a 57-year-old actress, opens up about being sexualized at just 11 years old. She was also being called “the most photographed woman in the world” in her new two-part documentary titled “Pretty Baby.”

The documentary explores her decades-long career in the spotlight, including her experience as a child model and her role in the 1978 film “Pretty Baby” where she played the role of a child sex worker. Shields discusses struggling to find her voice and agency in the industry and being shocked when she was chosen for the cover of Time Magazine at just 16 years old.

In the same documentary, Shields reveals that she was raped shortly after graduating from college in 1987. She explains how she froze and dissociated from her body during the assault. She even placed the blame on herself for some time.

The “Suddenly Susan” actress encourages others to find their own voice and agency and to speak out about their experiences.
