Brooke Shields did not regret none of her past – but she might reconsider publicly revealing she was a virgin.

On Tuesday’s episode of his iHeart podcast, Now what? With Brooke Shieldsthe veteran actress and model answered her friend Ali Wentworth’s question about whether Shields had a lot of “bad choices” as a youngster.

“I mean, I think it was, in hindsight, a little mistake on my part to be so open about my virginity, because it never left me alone,” Shields said.

She said the subject was covered in a 1985 book which, although credited to her, was actually written by someone else. All alone is an orientation book for college-aged women, published while Shields herself was attending Princeton University. The pretty baby The star said she wrote an in-depth first chapter, but the editor didn’t want it.

“They wanted a simple, silly book,” Shields said. “Like, ‘I like leggings.'”

Shields addressed her sex life because she wanted to help others.

“In there was part of a chapter, where I discuss — not abstinence per se — but possession of your choice,” she said. “I was getting a lot of fan mail from kids saying, ‘Oh, my boyfriend is pressuring me, and I don’t want to have sex. What should I do? My story was, ‘You you don’t have to do anything, you don’t want to.'”

She recalled that it was “very scary” that she then had to go on talk shows and talk to older men about the subject.

“I became the most famous virgin in the world,” she said. “To be in the line of fire at such a young age in this way has given me resilience and it has prepared me to be ready for anything in this industry which can be tough.”

Shields also regrets waiting to have sex for the first time when she finally did with her Princeton boyfriend Dean Cain at 22.

“I have regrets around [waiting]because there was a sense of joy and freedom that I should have felt in such a beautiful and beautiful and sweet relationship,” Shields said.

In November 2014, Shields noted in an interview with People that she had in fact included a chapter on being a virgin in an earlier book credited to her, in 1975 Brooke’s Book. It was the brainchild of her late mother/manager, Teri, who Shields has long said she had a complicated relationship with, largely due to Teri’s alcoholism.

Later in Shields’ new podcast episode, during a game of Never Have I Ever, Shields was asked if she’s ever caught an ex cheating.

“I didn’t run into an ex cheating, but I was dating an actor,” Shields said. “He said he had to go to LA, because his house had been flooded. And three days later when I called him – we were engaged – and three days later when I called him, a girl answered the phone. And then the inspector called me and said he was seen in a restaurant with another actress.”

While Shields declined to name the actor, she wrote in another 2014 book. there was a little girlthis former fiancé Liam Neeson had used the flooded house excuse when he left it while they were celebrating Christmas together.
