Brooke Shields Returns To The Blue Lagoon At 52!!
Brooke Shields has come a long way from her early days as an adolescent exploring the prohibitions of puberty on a deserted island. The star was seen flaunting her 52-year-old toned physique in a series of photographs and videos taken while the actress was on vacation with her family on Harbour Island in the Bahamas.
Urged to share photos of her fabulous 50 something body by her eldest daughter, 14-year-old Rowan Francis, Shields admits to having shied away from the cameras for some time.
“I never celebrated myself or my body. It felt indulgent or wrong, so there was a disconnect. I always wear bathing suits that cover everything, the bottoms in particular”.
Yes, we hear ya!! However, Shields’ teenage daughters convinced their mom that dressing in that specific way was unflattering, and with the help of their father they convinced her to venture out of her comfort zone and revisit her 14-year-old self by wearing daring bikinis she wouldn’t normally dare to wear.
Shields was seen posing in various locations at the Valentine’s Resort wearing nothing but a skimpy black and white Flagpole bikini and sharing captions such as “Bikini life in paradise”, or “Out of office and into vacation mode”, or more aptly “Another blue lagoon”.
It is interesting to note that almost 38 years have elapsed since the The Blue Lagoon premiered and caused a scandalous controversy in the year 1980. The film depicted 14-year-old Brooke Shields stranded on a tropical island with Christopher Atkins as adolescents growing up in a carefree environment with no restrictions whatsoever. The film was rated R as it contained a substantial amount of nudity and sexual content.
We, however, are finding it difficult to understand how the daring 14-year-old actress of the controversial Blue Lagoon could’ve turned into this camera-shy adult. Could it be the age? Motherhood? Or natural evolution??…Nonetheless, it seems that with the urging of her daughters Shields is getting her groove back and she is probably back to where she originally belongs.
