Actress and model Brooke Shields is opening up about her experience with sexual assault in her new documentary “Pretty Baby,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
In the documentary, Shields reveals that she was raped shortly after college. Shields says that the documentary is “so much bigger” than her own experience, as it also examines her life and fame.
The documentary also looks at child sexual exploitation, which Shields bravely confronts in the film.
The documentary was met with a standing ovation at the Sundance Film Festival, and Shields took the opportunity to blast the “ridiculous” battle between her and Tom Cruise over her postpartum depression.
Shields’ documentary is an important reminder to the public that sexual assault and exploitation are serious issues that need to be addressed.
