Brooke Shields is a beautiful, successful actress and devoted mom. But even this former model had some issues with her body, which led to her hanging on to her virtue longer than she would’ve liked.


She admits in the new issue of Health that one regret she had is "not learning to love the way I looked earlier."


"And I think I would have had sex a lot earlier!," she laughs. "I think I would have lost my virginity earlier than I did at 22. I had the public and all this pressure, and I wish I had just gotten it over with in the beginning when it was sort of OK.

I think I would have been much more in touch with myself," she reveals. "I think I wouldn’t have had issues with weight—I carried this protective 20 pounds [in college]. It was all connected. And to me, that’s a health regret."


All’s well that ends well, it seems, as Brooke is now happily married to Chris Henchy and is a proud mother to two girls.
