Where is she from? Manhattan
What’s she done? Shields has been in the business since the tender age of 11 months when she first appeared in an Ivory Soap ad. She modeled extensively throughout her childhood and teen years, including the controversial spot for Calvin Klein. She made her acting debut in 1978 in Pretty Baby, in which she played a child prostitute.
Why is she an icon? Shields may have started out as a child star, but her trajectory has not followed the typical child-star-turned-troubled-adult route. She’s managed to have a very successful and long career appearing in films, TV shows, and on Broadway.
Quote: “I am a city girl I think, at heart.”
