Brooke Shields’ Story: Discovering My Best Me
At 11 years old, Brooke Shields began her career with an ad for Ivory Soap. At 12 years old, she starred in the film Pretty Baby. She continued modeling into her late teens, until landing leading roles in dramas such as The Blue Lagoon and Endless Love.
After attending Princeton University, she went back to acting in NBC sitcoms Suddenly Susan and Lipstick Jungle. The list goes on and on for the number of modeling gigs, film and TV roles, and Broadway theater productions Brooke has been (and excelled) in.
Even with multiple awards and two Golden Globe nominations under her belt, Brooke still struggled with body confidence. Undoubtedly, all of the time she spent in the spotlight as a child—facing daily scrutiny in the public’s eye—has impacted her self-image.
“Growing up, I struggled with confidence. In my career, messages about what ‘body type’ I ‘didn’t have’ found a way of seeping in.”
—WarmSculpting™ Patient Brooke Shields
Brooke was the youngest guest star to ever appear on The Muppet Show. The youngest person to host ABC’s Saturday Night Live-like show Fridays. And the youngest fashion model to ever appear on the cover of Vogue. In fact, in the June 2009 Health magazine issue, she spoke of how she would’ve lost her virginity earlier than age 22, but a poor self-image is what held her back from boyfriend Dean Cain while they dated at Princeton.
As women, it’s not surprising to us that a superstar might struggle with self-esteem. Seven out of 10 girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school, and relationships with family and friends. 98% of girls feel there is an immense pressure from external sources to look a certain way. And 79% of girls are unhappy with their bodies.*
“I want my daughters, and all young women, to grow up embracing realistic views of women’s bodies, and to find confidence by loving what they were born with.”
That’s why Brooke is a spokeswoman for the Chain of Confidence SMART Girls campaign, a program that teaches young women to nurture their mental health and physical well-being. It’s also why she chose WarmSculpting body contouring. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in problem areas such as the abdomen, love handles, back, thighs, and under the chin. WarmSculpting treatments can help.
“I eat right. I work out hard. I lean on WarmSculpting body contouring treatments as part of my healthy lifestyle to help me feel sexy and confident.”
The SculpSure device is a non-invasive laser body contouring system, intended to permanently eliminate fat cells through non-invasive lipolysis of the abdomen, love handles (flanks), back, inner and outer thighs, and under the chin (submental).
