Now that I’ve moved downtown, I’ve become one of those converts. I feel like I need to put on a different wardrobe when I come uptown. —Brooke Shields

In the new issue of Haute Living New York, model and actress Brooke Shields opens up about her childhood, her marriage to writer/producer Chris Henchy and her enviable four-decade career.

After breaking into the film industry at the tender at of 12 playing a child prostitute in Louis Malle’s Pretty Baby, Shields went on to star in the 1981 smash Blue Lagoon. “I think that the reason why I was unfazed was because there was an innocence to the characters,” she explains. “In Pretty Baby the director didn’t want a little Lolita, he wanted an innocent kid and he got that.”

By the age of 16, Shields had become one of the most recognizable faces in the industry, and everyone, from Hollywood producers to New York social climbers wanted a piece. “I would get invited to Studio 54, but I’d leave before all the craziness and drugs happened. I never saw the bag passed around,” she insists.

As Shields grew older, she began to gravitate away the provocative roles that made her a household name, and instead, focus on comedy. Today, Shields lives in the West Village with her husband Chris Henchy and their two daughters. “Now that I’ve moved downtown, I’ve become one of those converts. I feel like I need to put on a different wardrobe when I come uptown,” she reveals.
