Pop me a cork, french me a fry



Lordy! Brooke Shields, child actress, model and possessor of some of the most famous eyebrows this side of the late Margaux Hemingway, "beard" to the stars (Michael Jackson, George Michael, John Travolta), is 50 years old today. News to make one feel old...

Her career in the spotlight is well documented, but who knew she sang? Here she is with a rather fab version of the classic Peel Me a Grape (an audience-shot video, I just wish someone would have told the person in front to just bloody sit down!):

  2. She's rather more talented than is generally credited - among other things, she's stepped several times as a replacement into roles on Broadway, and she's surprisingly good in broad comedy, as in her recurring turn as a trailer-trash mom on the sitcom The Middle. Brenda Starr, however, is another story...

    1. I was very surprised to read how her career had evolved since those days when she appeared to be in every gossip magazine. Jx

  3. Love her.
    I just wish she'd stop selling furniture at La Z Boy. Her eyebrows deserve better

    1. Needless to say, the reference means nothing in the UK. I looked it up, and wished I hadn't. Any company that can get her to say something as vacuous as "It used to be exciting when La-Z-Boy furniture reclined. Now it’s just as exciting when it doesn’t" deserves contempt. Jx

  4. Ok she has rather definite eyebrows !

    So did Elizabeth Taylor in her young days. They didn't do her career any harm.

    What a joy of a video. Thank you

    1. Not sure even Miss Shields would call herself an "Oscar-winning actress". Jx
