Brooke Shields was just 10 when photographer Gary Gross took photos of her posing nude in a bathtub in Wearing heavy makeup and nothing else, her body was later displayed in a series of shots published in Playboy publication Sugar and Spice. At the time she was just a little girl with her bare body splashed across the pages of a glossy magazine, but just a few years later she'd star in her first film role that would kick off her acting career. It's almost ironic that her character in that film, Pretty Baby , was a child prostitute. But the sad truth is that at just 10 years old, Brooke had no way of knowing or understanding what those nude photos meant, or how they would affect the rest of her life. Surprisingly, her mother Terri Shields was on board with the shoot, as she had long dreamed of her daughter becoming a star.

There was no hiding Brooke Shields from the frenzy surrounding the film Pretty Baby, in which she starred as year-old Violet, who lived with her prostitute mother in a Storyville brothel in New Orleans. But she was insulated from the controversy ignited by her nude scenes in the film. At the time, the precociously striking Shields had done modeling, commercials, and a couple of made-for-TV movies. Creative license aside, the film was based on a real place and inspired by the life and times of E. Bellocq, who photographed Storyville prostitutes; in the film, his character falls in love with Violet and sets up house with her. Shields previously recalled the making of Pretty Baby in her memoir, There Was a Little Girl, which chronicles her loving but fraught relationship with Teri. Despite period costumes that amplified the New Orleans heat and sometimes hour days, Shields cherished the experience—though her relationship with Sarandon wavered from frosty to supportive, according to her memoir.
