Brooke Shields is speaking out as she sits down with Dax Shepard during his Armchair Expert podcast.
The actor discussed her 1980 Calvin Klein jeans campaign, and got candid about how the media over-sexualised her following the infamous ads. She was just 15 years old when the ads aired.
The star recalled during the podcast one particular interview with Barabara Walters, in which she was asked a series of intimate and invasive questions about her sexual history. "It's practically criminal," she said of the conversation. "It's not journalism."
This isn't the first time the star opened up about the backlash from the campaign. Speaking to Vogue in October, she said: "I didn't think it was about underwear or sexual in nature. I was naïve. I think the assumption was that I was much more savvy than I ever really was. I was a virgin, and I was a virgin forever after that."
She continued: "The controversy backfired. The campaign was extremely successful, and then the underwear overtook the jeans. [Calvin Klein] understood how to push the envelope. It set the tone for decades."
