Brooke Shields says she got in “trouble” with her daughters for not warning them about the dark details in her new documentary, “Pretty Baby.”
“There’s a lot in the documentary they did not know about,” the model, 57, told People Wednesday of Rowan, 19, and Grier, 16, whom she shares with her husband, Chris Henchy.
“I got in trouble with them … because they were mad that I didn’t inform them about everything,” she went on. “But needless to say, it opened up some other conversations.”
In the candid film, Shields revealed she was raped shortly after graduating from college in 1987.
The former child star recalled that she was trying to get back into Hollywood in her 20s after studying at Princeton University and had dinner with a man to discuss possible acting projects.
The man, whom she didn’t identify, allegedly convinced her to go back to his hotel, where he claimed he would call her a cab.
“I go up to the hotel room, and he disappears for a while,” Shields remembered, noting that he later returned to the room naked.
“I didn’t fight that much. I didn’t. I just absolutely froze. I thought one ‘No’ should’ve been enough, and I just thought, ‘Stay alive and get out,’ and I just shut it out,” she said.
“God knows I knew how to be disassociated from my body. I’d practiced that.”
The “Suddenly Susan” alum admitted she did not process the assault for a long time and even blamed herself at one point.
“He said to me, ‘I can trust you, and I can’t trust people.’ It’s so cliché, it’s practically pathetic,” she shared.
“I believed somehow I put out a message, and that was how the message was received. I drank wine at dinner. I went up to the room. I just was so trusting.”
Shields spoke out about her experiences because she felt it was “important that we have that dialogue.”
