Brooke Shields, 43, was snapped arriving at JFK airport on Monday with her daughter Rowan, 6.
Brooke recently shared that she wishes she had learned to “love the way” she looked “earlier.”
“I think I would have had sex a lot earlier!” Brookejoked in the June issue of Health magazine. “I think I would have lost my virginity earlier than I did at 22.
“I had the public and this pressure, and I wish I had just gotten it over with in the beginning, when it was sort of OK. I think I could have been much more in touch with myself,” Brooke continued.
If she had sex earlier, “I think I wouldn’t have had issues with weight — I carried this protective 20 pounds [in college],” she said. “It was all connected. And to me, that’s a health regret.”
Brooke also opened up about aging.
“The older I get, the younger I feel,” she shared. “Growing up, I was always the kid, but I spoke like an adult and was in adult roles. I didn’t feel like a kid.
“The older I get, I actually feel younger! Which is good,” she continued. “I always thought when you get older, you’ll want to slow down, but I want to do even more.”
She has also become easier on herself as she ages.
“As I’m getting older, I’m enjoying my vices so much more because I feel like I’ve deserved them,” said Brooke, who loves to treat herself to a “good hunk of dark Belgian chocolate.”
One thing she’s strict about: sunscreen. Brooke had a “sun scare” — a mole near her upper left lip that “keeps coming back,” she said.
“I’ve had it for awhile, but a year ago my doctor froze it off and it turned out it was precancerous. I was panicked. I thought, Of course!” she continued. “Everything’s started to be in place, and now I have to get that?
“When everything is going well, my Catholic guilt rears its ugly head and says, ‘No, you’re not allowed to be that happy, ‘We’re gonna give you cancer now!'” she moaned.
