Brooke Shields:

[On her hands on mothering style] "I don't want to farm out my children."


Brooke Shields:

[On her new show Lipstick Jungle]: "[My kids] adapt unbelievably well and I haven't had one issue yet. Rowan loves the wardrobe room because it's like dress up for her. [My character] runs a film studio and has two kids, and that creates a nice conflict. She's a good mom, she's harried all the time, and she's very smart and ambitious and struggling to balance everything."


Brooke Shields:

“I think that women can have so much more than they realize.  I feel very lucky that I’ve had the opportunity to try to grasp as much as I can in my life. So, I do have a family, and I do have a husband, and I do have a career. And not at one time do I feel that I’m 100 percent in any one [of them]. That means that every day it’s a navigation . . . I understand the desire to be the best mom you can be, but not be happy unless you have a career that fulfills you."

Brooke Shields:

"I don’t think you ever feel you’re balancing anything. My kids are great, and I have a good husband. You’ve just got to keep everything in the air." - On balancing career and family, as told to Life and Style Magazine.
