Brooke Shields reflects on how she made it out alive after becoming the biggest child star of the 1980s. From her controlling mother who set her up to pose nude in Playboy at age 9, to her breakout role playing a child prostitute at age 11, to becoming the biggest model/actor of the decade in the 1980s to raising two daughters, becoming the first big name to de-stigmatize postpartum depression. She looks back at what has changed about the way society sexualizes women and what remains the same.
