Brooke Shields And The Pot Photo

Brooke Shields has always said she never did drugs because her mom would have let her so it made her not want to do them. That is probably not going to work with very many people. If your parents are saying yeah, go out and do a few bumps of coke on the weekend to clear your mind, you will probably do it. Anyway, the photo above was sent out on Twitter and supposedly shows and late teens Brooke Shields enjoying a pipe filled with pot and the musician H.R. of Bad Brains. Brooke has come out and said it is not her, but I don't know. Right time period. Sure looks like her. It would make me like her way more to know she was into smoking a little pot because she was so uptight back in the day, or at least presented that image to the public. Would be fun to know she was actually sitting back and enjoying something which would have caused the world to react in horror that their perfect little role model was a drug user.

Big deal Brooke, its just pot. If its you, own up to it!

dia papaya said...

Look at how happy HR is in that pic! LOL!!!

Finally a happy post :D I'm ignoring the rest of the words up there and focusing on that smiling stoned guy!

Happy PotDay! I mean happy FRIday! :)

tara17 said...

I don't think it's Brooke in the picture. However, if someone only smokes pot on rare occasions, or only did it a few times in their teens, I wouldn't think they were lying if they said they never did drugs.

Meg said...

30 years ago. Who cares.

rejectedcarebear said...

I agree Dia! Finally a nice post. Happy HIGH-day (you know I couldn't resist)

I hope to be that happy when the work day is over!

dia papaya said...

Glad I could make someone smile! Have a GREAT weekend! :D

Barton Fink said...

So not Broke Shields.

anita_mark said...

I'm with Meg. It was a long time ago, who cares? Why should she even address it? My feelings towards her remain the same, barely care.

kelgela2 said...

I looked like him the first and only time I got high. It was fun.

Renoblondee said...

Huh. Looking at that photo I thought it is SO her. Oh well.

MISCH said...

What difference does it make anyway..?

SaintsFan said...

I'm thinking it's her based on the eyebrows alone. I mean to look like her is one thing but to have the same bushy, thick eyebrows too?

Silly Girl said...

Look at the hair, eyebrows, cheekbones...it's totally her. She just needs to own it, who cares at this point any way. I hate when people continue to deny something that is SO blatantly obvious. Totally lose any credibility they had left.

Layna Day said...

Let's look at the bigger picture. Why would someone bother to bring up a 30-year-old story that doesn't matter, anyway? Looks like someone is trying to take a swipe at Brooke, but their revenge game is weak. Even if it is her, no one will care.

dia papaya said...

It's all photoshop, dammit!

*paid for by the Brooke Shields fan club*

Glitter said...

I don't like her more now that it looks like she kicked back and had some fun smoking pot!

Basil said...

Looks a bit like her, but I don't think it is her. But as other's have said, it is no big deal.

bonnie lee said...

I don't think it looks like her at all

Syd said...

It's totally her. I don't blame her for denying it though. She has kids.

deree said...

I just watched "Endless Love". This is her or her long lost twin. Who cares? It's pot,big freaking deal.

yodelay said...

I'm more surprised she's hanging out with Bad Brains than the fact that she's getting high.

Land Manatee said...

This is obviously not her. Just a look-a-like. Won't be long before the person in the photo is identified.

AKM said...

Definitely a chance that it's not her, but I'd say it's a slim one. Or a fat one. Why are a "slim chance" and a "fat chance" the same thing?

Anyway...

Yes, it's just pot. Come clean, Brooke, if it is you. Why not? Just say "I only tried it that one time" even if you'd like. No one is judging or cares at this point.

carolinec said...

Who cares! its just pot!

caralw said...

Does it matter?

hollywood dime said...

unless someone stole those bushy eyebrows...thats her! in her defense weed does make you forgetful

Amy said...

That doesn't look like her fashion sense to me at all. And this gal looks more athletic too. I don't think it's her.

Paisley said...

Everyone had thick eyebrows in the 80's.

Laura said...

I don't think it looks her. Not a big deal either way.

GrowFarmington said...

I don't think it's her and I don't care if she smoked pot then or now.

Jen said...

That is not her nose. Way too bulbous. Her features are more chiseled.

Cee Kay said...

Doesn't really look like her at all, if you bother to check.

SusanB said...

Oh geez, who cares. If this is the worst thing they have on Brooke, she has no need to worry about anything.

whocaresnow12 said...

This is going to sound horrible, but that wonam in the photo has legs that are too thick to be Brooke at 17-20 years old. If you go back and look at photos of her at that age she was much thinner than the person in this photo.

Chismosa Street said...

Nah, I don't think that's her. Eyebrows are too groomed. Brooke's brow was bushy and almost like a unibrow back then.

camembert said...

Is she wearing yellow panties?

smashbash said...

Yeeeaaahhhh dia! Happy pot- i mean Friday to you!

Can't hide those beautiful luscious eyebrows Brooke. Who gives a flying squirrel. She wasn't injecting heroin for goodness sake! Admit it and be done with it.

von said...

Jen is right, wrong nose. Brooke was incredibly beautiful back then, this woman is attractive but she's no BS. Not her. Frankly, the eyebrows aren't thick enough!

Barton Fink said...

camembert, great name! And I was all "What's with the pastel boxer/panty thing?" And the t-shirt with the sleeves bunched up all butch 'n shit? I just can't imagine her smoking pot so unelegantly, either. I imagine she would sit up to get high. I'm just not buying it.

Road said...

I guess that means I am two degrees away (or is it 1) from
Brooke-I hung out around the Bad Brains when some of my friends did a concert in SF.
Anyway--I am more surprised she hung out with HR than she got stoned.
Who cares? It should be legal anyway.

victoria has a secret said...

Looks more like modle Lynn Koester or Tatjana Patitz during that time period. Both were pretty famous during that time and had similar features. H.R. is originally from London.

Danielle said...

Sorry, that is absolutely her! Not any different from what a lot of late teens were doing. Myself included. And I also probably could have been considered "up-tight" to anyone other than my close friends. And if I were asked in public I may deny it as well. There are just some people in your life that you just know would not understand.

AnonyMrs said...

This girl looks too short and plump to be young Brooke and the face doesn't look quite right. Google Brooke Shields Blue Lagoon. She was drop dead gorgeous when she was younger, and she's 6ft tall with a tiny nose and no body fat. This isn't her.

Brenda L said...

Forget Brooke Shields! BAD BRAINS....wooooooo!!!!! I used to love them!

cinephreak said...

who TF cares, its old and its pot. Not like shes smoking meth and the pic was taken 3 days ago, COME ON PEOPLE. I think this gives her major badass-ness points in my book.
I liked Brooke already, but now I just love her, and this may just retire my crazy britney wallpaper on my iPad.

Eve said...

It's not her. Look at the eyebrows. I remember that era clearly and she looked very different from the girl in the pic.

kfg said...

C'mon ... No one could've made the movies she has made without a few bong hits.

parissucksliterally said...

oooooooooooooh, pot? OMG! How scandalous!

Road said...

She doesn't look anything like Tatjana or Lynn--but I am not 100% that it is Brooke. Oh well-here I thought maybe she hung out with the Bad Brains. I always thought she was way too uptight for that. But maybe not--who knows.
It was a long time ago.
As for her mother keeping her on the straight and narrow. I think we have all learned that her Mom is pretty wacky and not exactly a sober influence. So again-who knows....and who cares. If she did great! If not-oh well, still the same uptight beauty she always was.

dia papaya said...

Smash! You have fun, 'K. But not TOO much fun ;)

I don't think Brooke would be caught dead in the outfit. That's why it can't be her *said with sarcasm*

But if it is, like everyone else who cares?!? Do you think someone wants to trash some trash about her? Maybe her and her hubby are finally gonna split and he wants to get some dirt out there? Just speculating here.

Danielle said...

It's her. Her eye brows were never actually THAT thick. Also, this is not her at BLUE LAGOON age I wouldn't be suprised if she were in her late 20's here.

Chilie said...

Obviously I have way too much time on my hands... I spent the last 30 minutes looking though images of early Brooke and I think it's her. The hands/fingers convinced me. found a few shots of her nose where she's not facing the camera head on... Some photos where's she's looking pretty athletic. yeah, I think it's her.

That said, after her fur campaign, I still think she is a piece of shit. A *slightly* more likeable piece of caca, but she's still caca.

timebob said...

Doesn't look lik her to me.

I get why she would care, she has a wholesome mom image brand to sell now. Even if it was 30 years ago it can scare off paying advertisers.

Chilie said...

Please excuse my typos. Must learn to read over my posts before posting .

sbalb said...

I have no idea if that's Brooke in the pic or not, and if it is my response is "so what?"
But I remember watching the VH1 Behind the Music on Leif Garrett years ago... in it, they interview his mom who admits that she pretty much let him do whatever he wanted once he became famous. She compared herself to Brooke Shields' mom (both BS and LG came into their fame around the same time) and said that she used to feel sorry for Brooke because her mom was so strict- "that poor child, she never gets to do anything!" But she said that in retrospect, of course, she wished she'd been more like Brooke Shields' mom, because "Nobody messed with her kid. But they messed with mine." I don't know a lot about Brooke and her mom, but that characterization doesn't jive with what Enty's written here. Anybody know more about Brooke's mom?

skimpymist said...

While this article is about brook the obvious star in the picture is H.R. That guy is stoned out of his mind and loving every minute of it!

Chilie said...

Brooke's mom had/has mental health issues. She was also known to be extremely controlling of Brooke and every situation involving Brooke. I know she cost her kid a few gigs because of her behaviour. She also drinks heavily, or did drink heavily. I know nothing about her current situation.

Anyway, I know Brooke was estranged from her for at least a few years because Mom wouldn't back off attempting to control her..

jax said...

that looks like Rachel Weis to me.

All about Eve said...

I don't think it's her but if it is so what? It's ok Brooke, you will be forgiven

E Gee Be said...

my sister once smoked with the guys from eek-a-mouse in the late 80's....maybe I should start a twitter scandal about that today? I think all 34 of my followers will care about that story as much as they do about this non-issue!
And yes, it does make me like her more....

Road said...

Ok- too much time on this, but I am procrastinating the day. In any case, she has the same hairline (little messed up in the photo--but it appears the same to me), which is very unique to Brooke Shields. The guy who found the photo tweeted that he was 100% certain that was Brooke, just not certain it is HR. sigh.
Maybe HR will comment-ha!
In any case, Brooke's mom suffers dementia--she was not as controlling as you all want to believe. Her damage control article in the Daily Mail explains this. Brooke still denies she took advantage of this free nature her Mom had about drugs.

It should also be noted that Brooke's Mom allowed her to do highly controversial photo shoots as a little girl. They were basically a pedophile's wet dream. This is probably why they put out the image that her Mom was very controlling--meant to balance the fact that she was displaying her little girl in near nude photos.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

not sure if I would say smoking some herb qualifies one to be deemed a drug user.

adderal heads, ambien poppers = drug users/dope injectors, coke sniffers = drug users.

anita_mark said...

The good people at Lazy-Boy are not going to be happy.

When Colgate asked, 4 out of 5 doctors didn't care.

Audrey said...

I thought that was Snoop Dog when I first saw the pic. And, ya, that's definitely Brook. The hairline, the eye brows are unmistakable.

Anotheramy said...

It looks like her mid-nose up but the bottom of the face doesn't look like her. A lot of people followed her lead and left their eyebrows heavy and had that hairstyle. I find it inconclusive.

auntliddy said...

Wtf is even the point of this???? Who gvs a rats ass?

lc said...

It is Brooke! I had such a girl crush on her back in the day and studied every photo of her imaginable. This is her. Nobody has those eyebrows. And it is just weed, it gives her more street cred. Just fess up and be cool Brooke.

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

That looks nothing like Brooke.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Well, I think it looks a lot like her...the hairline, especially. Anyway, Gawker just posted that HR's camp has confirmed it is an 18-yr-old Brooke.

pilly said...

Brooke Shields has a widows peak

Chick in the photo does not

Barton Fink said...

Gawker's article also kind of mocks the idea that a publicist from 2012 knows a lot about the social events of 1983.

Selock said...

Not her but great pic!

Also, I had super permissive parents and I has zero interest in debauchery, as a teen. College, though...

Selock said...

haD

Me said...

I hope it is her. Because the mental image of Brooke Shields hanging out with H.R. is priceless. Mind. Blown.

lazyday603 said...

I was in high school & college in the 2nd half of the 70's and it was hard to find somebody who didn't smoke pot at that time. The difference was how much you smoked, not whether you did or didn't. Stoners smoked all the time. Jocks & cheerleaders only at rock concerts. In a fraternity of 80 guys there were 2 who had never used drugs. This was in Texas. Proving that "Dazed and Confused" was an exact portrait of that time and place. If Brooke Sheilds said no everytime somebody passed her a joint in that era she would have spent half her time arguing why she wouldn't partake.

Land Manatee said...

This is the only photo I could find of her when she was younger and looking down as in the Twitter pic. It's similar but I wouldn't say it's her (sorry for long link, I don't know how to make it a hot link):

TheRecklessRoute said...

She just got a lot cooler in my brain. Not because of the pot, but because she was hanging out with a member of Bad Brains.

crila16 said...

I don't know...it kinda looks like her face, but doesn't really look like her in the body. This girls arms look toned and Brooke was always super skinny at that age. This girl looks well fed.

eris hilton said...

I never liked Bad Brains all that much but this picture still makes her cooler in my book.

Jeri said...

Doesn't look like Brooke to me, her eyebrows were a lot bigger.

FrenchGirl said...

she's not Brooke Shield

goes in circles said...

I think it's Amanda Peet. But if HR is saying it is Brooke I will go for that.

It's Friday and you ain't got shit to do...

zeldafitzgerald said...

i think bad brains just lost some major cred

Amy Scott said...

That looks nothing like Brooke Shields.

N9NA said...

Doesn't look like her to me.
