Brooke Shields

Brooke Shields (born May 31, 1965) is an American actress, born in New York, New York, USA. She attended Princeton University.

Shields career started among much ballyhoo over her appearance in Pretty Baby[?] in which she had numerous nude scenes. Since she was only 13 at the time, it raised questions of child pornography.

After two decades of movies, the best-known film she took part in is probably still Endless Love[?] (1981), made near the beginning of her career. She played in a number of television productions, the most successful being the series Suddenly Susan[?].

She was married from 1997 to 1999 to professional tennis player, Andre Agassi. Since 2001 she has been married to Christopher Thomas Henchy[?].

She won the People's Choice Awards in the category of Favorite Young Performer in four consecutive years from 1981 to 1984 and more than a decade later she won again in the category of Favorite Female Performer in a New Television Series in 1997.

Her ancestry is traced in William Addams Reitwiesner[?]'s monograph, The Lesbian Ancestors of Prince Rainier of Monaco, Dr. Otto von Habsburg, Brooke Shields, and the Marquis de Sade.
