American actress and model Brooke Shields stepped into showbiz with modelling in 1966 as a toddler of just 11 months. She became famous as child model and gradually forayed into acting. She garnered critical acclaim playing Violet, a 12-year-old prostitute, in the 1978 film ‘Pretty Baby.’ This was followed by films like ‘The Blue Lagoon’ (1980) and ‘Endless Love’ (1981), before she took hiatus from acting. She returned in the 1990s and went on to feature in starring roles in TV series like ‘Suddenly Susan’ (also producer, 1996–2000) and films like ‘The Midnight Meat Train’ (2008) and ‘Under Wraps’ (voice role, 2014).
Although Brooke had achieved success as a child artist and model, but she struggled to get substantial roles after making her comeback in the 1990s. She has proved her acting mettle in several films, but some of her works have also been rebuffed by critics as her worst performances.
List of Brooke Shields works includes popular TV series ‘Suddenly Susan,’ ‘Lipstick Jungle’ (2008–2009), and ‘Mr. Pickles’ (2014–present) and top-grossing films like ‘Pretty Baby,’ ‘The Blue Lagoon’ and ‘Endless Love.’ The film ‘Black and White’ (1999) is counted among her box-office failures.
