Brooke Shield discusses underage nude picApril 22nd, 2010 - 3:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 22 (ANI): Brooke Shield is happy that the photographer who clicked her nude picture of her as a child was not able to make out profit from it, calling his financial struggles “justice”.
The ‘Pretty Baby’ star posed nude for photographer Garry Gross as a pre-teen and alleges that he tried to make money by selling the picture when she turned 16.
“Everything that happened that felt sordid (about the shoot) happened after the fact. My kids walk around naked all the time, and I was nine - I wasn’t uncomfortable doing it,” The Daily Star quoted her as telling Easy Living magazine.
“When I was 16, I wouldn’t have done it. That guy (original photographer Garry Gross) waited until I was 16 before he decided to publish it - he tried to take this famous person and sell her out.
“My favourite part about the whole story is that Richard Prince photographed that picture and made millions of dollars, and the guy that tried to screw me to begin with is a dog walker, and has no money. That’s justice in a really weird way. One day I’ll have to explain it to my kids, but I’ll figure it out,” she added. (ANI)
