- Brooke Shields says in the Calvin Klein campaignThe star recalled during the podcast one particular interview with Barabara Walters, in which she was asked a series of intimate and invasive questions about her sexual history. "It's practically criminal," she said of the conversation."It's not journalism."
This isn't the first time the star opened up about the backlash from the campaign. Speaking toVoguein October, she said:"I didn't think it was about underwear or sexual in nature. I was naïve. I think the assumption was that I was much more savvy than I ever really was. I was a virgin, and I was a virgin forever after that." headtopics.com
She continued:"The controversy backfired. The campaign was extremely successful, and then the underwear overtook the jeans. [Calvin Klein] understood how to push the envelope. It set the tone for decades."WATCH THE AD AND HER INTERVIEW WITH VOGUE HERE:
