Brooke Shields talked for the first time about a sexual assault that took place over 30 years ago.
“I had heard there was a movie being made, and I was in consideration. It was the first time since college that any interested was sort of expressed [in me],” Brooke says in the film.
“We had a dinner. I thought it was a work meeting. I had met this person before, and he was always nice to me.” She says the mood changed and she knew she needed to leave. I said, ‘I have to get a cab,’ and he said, ‘Come back to the hotel — I’ll call you a cab.'”
She says she did go to his room and he disappeared for a short moment.
“I don’t want to go over to the phone, because it’s not my phone,” she says. “I don’t want to sit down, because I’m not staying. The door opens, and the person comes out naked. I put the binoculars back and he was right on me. It was like wrestling. I just absolutely froze. I thought: ‘My one ‘No’ should have been enough. Stay alive and get out.'”
The actress says she “disassociated” from her body.
