We caught up with actress/model Brooke Shields to find out more about her upcoming role in Celebrity Autobiography and what she would call her next autobiography.
Christie Brinkley and Brooke Shields attend Celebrity Autobiography at Guild Hall in East Hampton in 2013.
Brooke Shields has never stopped working—from her early years as a model/child star to iconic ads for Calvin Klein and now, managing a busy acting career while raising two daughters in New York City. The dynamo doesn't show any signs of slowing down either, and even tells us that her next autobiography will be called "I'm Still Here."
Shields, who just finished filming Daisy Winters in Georgia and celebrated the premiere of the third Flower Shop Mystery movie, Dearly Depotted, adds another chance for fans to catch her in action with Celebrity Autobiography, which has two back-to-back shows on Friday, August 26 at Guild Hall.
Here, discover who Shields would pick to play her on Celebrity Autobiography, the hardest part of penning an autobiography, and where we can catch her next.
What drew you to Celebrity Autobiography in the first place?
BROOKE SHIELDS: Working within a community of actors I respect in an un-pressured, supportive environment. Plus, I love taking the piss out of anyone who takes themselves too seriously.
Do you know which celebrity’s life story you’ll be reading?
BS: I never do until the night of the event.
Which star would you love to impersonate for the show one day?
BS: Anyone Irish.
You've written a few autobiographies. Who would you pick to impersonate you?
BS: Anyone Irish.
For you, what is the hardest part of writing an autobiographical story? The most fun?
BS: The hardest part is not re-reading what I’ve written immediately after, in an attempt to make it sound more intelligent. The most fun? Being honest.
Do you think you would write another autobiography? What would it be about, and what would you call it?
BS: Maybe down the road, a retrospective on all of the wonderful things that I’ve experienced in life, filtered though my unique perspective. The title: I’m Still Here.
With regards to this production, have you ever thought about doing stand-up comedy?
BS: I’m currently writing a one-woman show...
You just finished filming Flower Shop Mystery: Dearly Depotted, which aired recently on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel. Which of the three Flower Shop Mystery movies was your favorite to film?
BS: Hands down, the third. I got to do a helium bit. Who doesn’t love a helium bit?
Tell us a little bit about your character, Abby Knight.
BS: Tune in, and you’ll see how cool she is, even though she’s kind of a dork.
Does her personality in the show reflect your own in any ways?
BS: Actually yes. We both don’t like taking “no” for an answer, and aren’t afraid to look stupid.
What’s in store for the future? What else are you working on?
BS: I just wrapped on a wonderful film in Savannah called Daisy Winters, directed by Beth LaMure. I’m taking a brief break to enjoy some summertime with my family before we start work on the next Flower Shop Mystery movie.
