Brooke Shields is taking aging in stride — and not sweating it!

In a new interview, the actress, 58, shared a refreshing viewpoint when it comes to growing up in Hollywood.

“You have to change the narrative. It’s an affront to people if Brooke Shields gets older. You can’t grow up, you cannot age. It’s disappointing to them that I don’t have the same face I had when I was 16," she told AARP The Magazine's April/May 2024 Issue about being in front of the camera for most of her life.

Brooke Shields got real about aging during a new interview.

The actress — who rose to fame as a baby in soap opera commercials and print ads — also got candid about having all eyes on her from such a young age. “It only became clear to me how famous I was when we went out. If we went to Studio 54 or the Cannes Film Festival, there would be hordes of people and paparazzi screaming my name and sometimes rocking the car, and I’m like, ‘This is nuts.’ It was like facing a firing squad," she shared.

The star shares two children with her husband.

“I recently turned down a project, and it was hard for me because I don’t back out of things. But it was giving me such anxiety. There were other things I needed to do — get a foot operation, write a book, get my company off the ground. I felt such relief saying no," she admitted.

Shields — who is about to become an empty nester — is also all about being a good parent to her two girls, Rowan and Grier, whom she shares with husband Chris Henchy.

“From the time my girls were little kids, I spoke to them as human beings and made my best effort to switch it back around. ‘What do you think about that, or how does that make you feel?’ They’ve never felt judged by me, whereas I felt judged all the time," she noted of her parenting tactics.
