Brooke Shields Calls Barbara Walters Interview “Practically Criminal”

Old Brooke Shields interviews don’t exactly glow in the modern light. 

Four decades after she starred in those infamous Calvin Klein commercials and ads, the 56-year-old actress is calling out the treatment she faced from the press, particularly when it came time to sitting down with journalists and talk show hosts. During a chat with Dax Shepard and Monica Padman for their Armchair Expert podcast, the actor referred to an interview Barbara Walters did with the young supermodel, calling it “maddening.” Brooke was in agreement. 

“It’s practically criminal,” she said on the Dec. 6 episode. “It is not journalism.” While the two did not specify when the interview took place, a clip online of one sit-down between Brooke and Barbara shows the journalist asking for the star’s measurements and posing the questions, “Would you be a mother like your mother?” and “But what about the people who say she had no childhood—and accuse you [points to mom Teri Shields]. You took away her childhood.”

Reflecting generally on how interviews with her were conducted at that time, Brooke realized her answers would never be enough. “They never wanted my answer,” she said. “They wanted their point of view.”
