Brooke Shields (1978) When she was 12, Brooke Shields appeared in Louis Malle's film "Pretty Baby," playing a child living in a New Orleans brothel. The film caused a huge uproar and some called it child pornography. When she was 14, Shields starred in Blue Lagoon, appearing topless, but not nude. But despite the controversies, her modeling career flourished, and Shields wasnt at a loss for work. Shields appeared in an infamous Calvin Klein jeans ad (You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins?), and continued to grace magazine covers. She later attended Princeton University, and more recently has appeared as a guest on Miley Cyrus Hannah Montana.
