27. Brooke Shields
Brooke Shields’ father was wealthy. He was an executive at Revlon while her mother was a model who came from Italian nobility. When Shields’ mother found out that she was pregnant, her father had paid her to get an abortion, which she didn’t get, so upon discovering that she was still pregnant, he married her. The marriage didn’t last, however, and by the time Shields was five months old, her parents divorced. According to her mother, it was the gulf in their backgrounds that caused the divorce. “I am too opinionated and don’t act right in public,” she said.
