Brooke Shields took the pole jump a little early this year.
The actress and model celebrated Thanksgiving by posting a video of herself in a red swimsuit as she took a dip in a cold pool.
In the Instagram video captioned “The #thanksgiving traditioncontinues,” accompanied by a turkey emoji and an emoji of a blue icy face, Shields can be heard panting with every step she takes deeper into the shallow pool. She manages to get her entire body, up to her shoulders, submerged for a few seconds before quickly heading outside to warm up.
Shields started this tradition last year, posting a video of her stepping into the same small pool in the same red swimsuit.
Shields’ icy swim comes just a few days after she spoke up during her interview with Barbara Walters when she was 15 years old.
During a recent appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” the 57-year-old shared how uncomfortable she felt during the 1981 interview when Walters began questioning her about her body.
Of the interview, which took place after her infamous Calvin Klein commercial sparked controversy, Shields said Walters “asked me what my measurements were and asked me to stand up, and I stand up, and she compares herself to this little girl. , and I thought, “This isn’t right. I don’t understand what this is.”
“But I was just behaving, smiling and feeling so abused in so many ways.”
Shields has previously spoken about Walters’ line of questioning, calling the way she was interviewed “practically criminal” and “not journalism” during an episode of the “Armchair Expert” podcast with Dax Shepard last year.
After Barrymore opened up about her own negative experiences when interviewed by Walters, they both made it clear that they harbor no ill will towards the journalist and still have the utmost respect for her.
Shields has also been candid about her regret telling the world she was a virgin in her early twenties. She wrote about it in her 1985 book On Your Own, which was about leaving home for the first time.
Earlier this month, on the “Now What?” podcast with Ali WentworthShields said, “I think in hindsight it was a bit of a mistake on my part to be so open about my virginity, because it never left me alone,” adding that she became the “most famous virgin in the world.” “
This admission was followed by Shields being asked about her virginity by “strange older men” during interviews, something she told Wentworth that was “very creepy” in retrospect.
“But there was something, being in the line of fire at such a young age, that gave me resilience. It kind of prepared me for everything in this industry, which can be tough,” she said.
