Brooke Shields Got Carpal Tunnel’d

Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 1.10.09 AM

Ouch, Brooke Shields. That looks painful…

On Monday the actress took to instagram to show off some massive bandages. No, not a fashion statement: a double wrist surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome. The actress remains incredibly optimistic about the operation, saying:

“Told to wear these double arm slings. Feels like a self love exercise!”


Brooke’s been very open about having carpal tunnel syndrome, which is brought on by pinched nerves in a person’s arm or hand. But I bet Brooke’s feeling much better now that the surgery is over.

Hell, a little insta love goes a looonnnng way.

Brooke Shields is ready for more kids!

For someone who scored her first modeling gig at 11 months old, Brooke Shields sounded stunningly normal when she opened up to Life & Style about her life during New York Fashion Week. Whether she’s bumming around in sweats with her hubby, Chris Henchy, and daughters Rowan, 6, and Grier, 3, or filming Furry Vengeance with Brendan Fraser, the 44-year-old actress and model seems to have found the perfect balance.

On having more kids:

Brooke: I’d love more kids. I don’t know how much longer my clock is going to tick, so it’s going to depend on my egg age.

On balancing career and family:

Brooke: I don’t think you ever feel you’re balancing anything. My kids are great, and I have a good husband. You’ve just got to keep everything in the air.

On Valentine’s Day with the family:

Brooke: I had a Donna Karan dress all laid out because I was going to go on a date with my husband, and I looked at him and said, “I just can’t do it. Let’s just hang around with the kids.” We were all in sweat pants and made cookies all day!

Brooke Shields: Michael Jackson was “asexual” to me

Brooke Shields & Michael Jackson

Brooke Shields says she “instantly became friends” with Michael Jackson after meeting him when she was 13.

“Nothing was jaded about him. I just was so impressed by his sweetness,” Shields tells Rolling Stone’s special commemorative issue on the King of Pop, on stands Friday.

He was thoughtful, sensitive, sweet, and had a funny sense of humor,” she goes on. “If you got to talk to him about music or about the future of technology, his voice would get deeper, he would start talking, and it was as if he was this genius.”

Sexuality didn’t play a role in their relationship, she explains.

“As he grew older and the more he started to change physically, the more asexual he became to me,” Shields says. “It was easy for him to be a friend to me, because I was the most celebrated virgin ever; it’s ridiculous, but I was America’s virgin.

“You saw women who were more sexual, who wanted to throw themselves at him and feel like they were going to teach him; we just found each other, and we didn’t have to deal with our sexuality. As I grew up and started having boyfriends, I would share with him, and he was like a little kid who talked about the bases- what first base was, what second base was, and it sounded very odd to the outside, I can imagine, but to the inside, to someone who’s never really left his bubble, you can understand how he would be curious.” Shields continues.

“There were times when he would ask me to marry him, and I would say, ‘You have me for the rest of your life, you don’t need to marry me, I’m going to go on and do my own life and have my own marriage and my own kids, and you’ll always have me.’ I think it made him relax. He didn’t want to lose things that meant something to him,” she adds.

She last saw Jackson at Elizabeth Taylor’s 1991 wedding.

“He seemed like his own funny self,” she says. “We snuck in and took pictures of ourselves next to her dress. We always seemed to revert to being little kids. It was a sanctuary for him, because he knew I never wanted anything from him but his happiness.”

Brooke’s cancer scare


Brooke Shields has been known for her striking beauty for decades but her sun worshipping ways caught up with her recently when doctors found a pre-cancerous spot on her face.

Shields says she’s doing fine after having the spot removed but it served as a wake-up call to the actress who “used to think it was the best thing in the world to be baking in the sun” and who, as a teen, would indulge in hot-weather rituals like “baby oil and tinfoil and lemon in your hair.”

“All my girlfriends and I would go up on the roof in New York; we didn’t have to be at the beach,” though Brooke says she gave up active tanning over a decade ago she realizes now alot of the damage has already been done: “You think that because you’re not in the sun anymore, it’s all in the past. And then something like that crops up and you’re made aware of how dangerous it really can be.”

Brooke is now the new face of Coppertone Nutrashield which claims to protect from sun damage while promoting skin repair.
