Shatter shields She says she was sexually assaulted in her 20s – something she says she blamed at the time…and will be discussed further in her new doc.
The 80s icon has even unlocked people mag Ahead of her new Hulu project, “Pretty Baby,” which launches next month. Having already made fun of the fact that she was assaulted in her youth, she describes it here for the first time… and says it took a back seat during her college years.
Shields says she was a recent graduate of Princeton and went out to dinner with an unnamed Hollywood executive who she thought would land her a new acting gig…that’s after her career had been fairly steady. It’s unclear where/when this happened – she didn’t say.
Shields says he invited her back to the hotel afterwards so she could make a call – and she went with him. Once there, she claims he sexually assaulted her… but she doesn’t go into too much detail. All she says is that she didn’t fight back – and felt guilty afterwards.
Of her thoughts at the time… “I kept saying, ‘I shouldn’t have done that,'” Shields says. Why did you go up with him? I shouldn’t have had this drink for dinner. “
She went on to describe her reaction this way… “It was really easy to break away because by then it was old hat,” she recalls. “And because it was a fight-or-flight type of choice. Fighting wasn’t an option, so you just have to leave your body.” You are not there. It doesn’t. “
We got Brooke earlier this week on camera, and she talked to us about the new doc too…she got emotional about it, telling us how hard her life is.
The full story will begin airing on April 3.
