Brooke Shields Regrets Not Having Sex Sooner: Losing Virginity Could Have Helped With Body Image
MSNBC ^ | updated 1 hour, 35 minutes ago

Posted on 05/26/2009 8:54:37 AM PDT by lewisglad

Brooke Shields got a head start in modeling and acting, but the one thing she regrets not doing sooner? Having sex.

"I think I would have had sex a lot earlier," the actress tells Health magazine in its June issue. "I think I would have been much more in touch with myself."

In fact, Shields, 44, feels that losing her virginity sooner could have helped her with body image as a young adult.

"I think I wouldn't have had issues with weight — I carried this protective 20 pounds (in college). It was all connected," she says. "I think I would have lost my virginity earlier than I did at 22."

Though Shields reveals that she didn't learn "to love the way I looked earlier," now that she's older, she's not letting age hold her back.

"The older I get, the younger I feel," the actress says. "Growing up, I was always the kid, but I spoke like an adult and was in adult roles ... I always thought when you get older, you’ll want to slow down, but I want to do even more."

She was the most beautiful young woman, and even now, in early middle age, she is very lovely. It’s amazing how the most beautiful girls and women sometimes are made to think they’re unattractive, while plain ones can be full of self-confidence that makes them attractive. But if Ms. Shields thinks that having sex earlier would have made her feel better about herself, she’s quite wrong. That never helps. The problem is inside and can’t be fixed by the crude attentions of college boys.

This sounds like a new pick up line in the making-—

“Let me save you from low self esteem -— Brooke Shields says we should do it!”

Yes, I fail to see how being a public toilet for males who will screw anything with a pulse would have helped her "body image" or self-esteem. For most of us, growing up is what it takes.

Nothing wrong with eyebrows ;-). There’s no question that she was a beautiful girl, and she’s a well-preserved 40-odd now.

"...made to think they’re unattractive...."

By whom are they "made to think?"

No one "makes" anyone else to "think." Accepting that errant philosophy has given us so many lies in America in particular but even the rest of the world today.

The idea that anyone is "made to think" is tantamount to "made to act," etc., etc., etc. Only a person accepts or rejects the opinions of others. This statement takes me back to the term "the Devil made me do it" and that was part of a comedy routine.

Oh, I could have helped her also, but it would have taken an hour or TWO.

True, but she still could use a little trim of those eyebrows.

She asked me to help her at the time, but I turned her down. Now I sometimes question my decision and feel responsible for her bad self-image.

As I recall, she lost her virginity to George Michael. Yes, George Michael from WHAM! who turned gay and got arrested in a men's room in an L.A. park for lewd behavior.
