Shatter shields Says Barbara Walters He put her in an uncomfortable position during an interview 41 years ago — when Brooke was still a minor — and it still remains to this day.
The actress and model recalled a 1981 interview she did with Walters… when Shields was fresh from the famous Calvin Klein ad campaign. On Tuesday, she told her story on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” saying BW improperly interrogated her.
Brooke, who was 15 at the time, remembers Walters fishing for a vocal bite by immediately asking for her measurements and standing up… which made Brooke feel like Walters was comparing herself to a teen idol.
In hindsight, Brooke says she felt like it wasn’t right at the time — but says she just played along and did what she was told. Since then, she said, she has learned how to say no and stand up for herself.
Walters and Shields seem to have made peace in recent years — they’ve posed in tons of photos together, and they always seemed happy. Shields also said she holds nothing against Walters now, and respects her career and her legacy.
Walters isn’t the only old anchor who has come under scrutiny lately for old sit-ups… Britney Spears Out-of-service Diane Sawyer not long ago to Interview in the 2000s Which felt off limits, too.
