We knew Brooke Shields started acting at an unfathomably young age, but this is CRAY!!
The girl who, at just 12, played a prostitute in the film Pretty Baby admits to chillin' in the club just a few years later as an underage teen!
"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. Andy Warhol and all those guys were very sweet to me. There was something about me that they wanted to protect and uphold."
Whoa! Even back in the '70s, child starlets could be exposed to drugs, sex, and danger!
Brooke, now 47, credits her mom for keeping her out of harms way.
The Blue Lagoon star continued:
“[Mom] kept so much from me. She wanted me to stay a kid for as long as possible."
Aww! She sounds like an outstanding mother!
We wish the troubled child stars of today's generation had similar parental guidance!!
