In her new documentary, “Pretty Baby,” Brooke Shields reveals she was sexually raped shortly after graduating from college in 1987.
Shields reveals in the documentary that she was attempting to return to Hollywood after attending Princeton and had dinner with a man she knew to discuss potential projects, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.
The mysterious man allegedly persuaded her to return to his hotel, where he would then call her a cab.
“I go up to the hotel room, and he disappears for a while,” she added, adding that he had a pair of binoculars and was observing volleyball players out the window before he returned naked to the room.
“I lowered the binoculars and he was immediately upon me. Similar to wrestling, she explained that she never fought out of fear. I was terrified I might be strangled or something.
The actress from “Blue Lagoon” said, “So I didn’t fight that much. I didn’t. I just utterly froze. I believed that one “No” should have been plenty, and I simply thought, “Stay alive and get out,” so I ignored it.
“God knows I knew how to separate myself from my body. I had rehearsed that.”
Shields, 57, said she took the elevator down, hailed a cab, and “cried all the way to my friend’s apartment”
Shields, who apparently took some time to comprehend that she had been raped, stated that she held herself responsible for the incident.
“He told me, ‘I can trust you, but I cannot trust others,'” It is so trite that it is virtually pitiful,” she added. “I assumed I somehow transmitted a message, and that’s how it was received. I drank wine at supper. I ascended to the room. I was simply so naive.”
Years later, the “Endless Love” actor claims she addressed her assailant a letter addressing him about his actions, but it was disregarded.
She stated, “I just threw up my hands and said, ‘You know what, I refuse to be a victim because this is something that happens regardless of who you are and whether you believe you’re prepared or not.'”
“I desired to wipe the entire experience from my mind and body and continue on my current route. Never once had the system helped me. Therefore, I had to become stronger on my own.”
Shields, who has two daughters with husband Chris Henchy, has long discussed being sexualized in Hollywood since appearing nude in the 1987 film “Pretty Baby” alongside Keith Carradine at the age of 11.
Shields has previously discussed how Hollywood sexualized her at an early
After Shields appeared in steamy sequences in “Blue Lagoon” and “Endless Love” when she was 15 years old, Barbara Walters asked her controversially for her measurements and instructed her to stand.
Shields told Drew Barrymore in an interview last year, “I just smiled and behaved,” adding that she “felt so taken advantage of in so many ways.”
The Sundance Film Festival premiere of “Pretty Baby” occurred on Friday, and it will be available on Hulu later this year.
