  • Shields said she doesn't love wrinkles, but feels she's "earned" hers over the course of her life.

Brooke Shields discussed her attitude towards aging in a recent TikTok video, saying she believes she has "earned" her wrinkles.

Shields made the post, which was part of a paid partnership with skincare brand True Botanicals, on April 11, in response to a fan who commented on one of her previous TikToks, asking, "I love to see that you aren't afraid to age. What's your secret?"

"I can't say I love wrinkles, because that would be, like, a lie," Shields said. "But what I will say is that I have earned them, and they're from smiling, so I don't want to eradicate everything that shows my maturity and my growth and who I am today, and I'm not trying to be like I was when I was 15."

The 57-year-old actor, who has been in the public eye since she was a child, went on to say she often hears her two daughters, Rowan and Grier, who are 19 and 16 respectively, discussing fillers and other cosmetic procedures, which she finds "frightening." She said she talks openly with them about the importance of eating and living in a healthy way to look after your skin.

Commenters under the video, which received 467,000 views, thanked Shields for her advice, and many complimented her on her appearance.


"Stay true to you. Beauty at every age!" one top comment read.

On TikTok, Shields often shares insights into her personal life, including home recipes and videos of her spending time with family, with her 642,000 followers.

More recently, she has been sharing promotional content for her new Hulu documentary, which was released on April 3, titled "Pretty Baby," a reference to the 1977 movie of the same name that Shields starred in, catapulting her to fame at 12 years old.

In the two-part documentary, Shields opened up about her upbringing as a model and child star, and spoke about being objectified from such a young age.

In a 2019 interview with Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live," the actor said she is afraid of the thought of getting plastic surgery, revealing that after she had children, she preferred to deal with the impacts that birth and aging had on her body using a non-invasive body contouring treatment known as WarmSculpting.


Shields rose to fame as a model and actor throughout the 1970s and '80s. In recent decades she has appeared in TV shows including "Friends," "The Simpsons," and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." Most recently she starred in two holiday movies released on streaming platforms: Netflix's "A Castle for Christmas" in 2021 and HBO Max's "Holiday Harmony" in 2022.
