Mental Illness Gets the Celebrity Treatment. That's a Good Thing
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Actress and Girls creator Lena Dunham has been one of the more tireless celebrity advocates for openness around the subject of mental illness, frequently talking about her own struggles with anxiety, depression and obsessive compulsive disorder in the press and on social media. Most recently, she posted to Instagram a widely-circulated shot of her open mouth, prescription meds on her tongue, with the caption "Can I live?" It's not the first time she's talked about how medication, in particular, has saved her life. On her website, Dunham writes that she hopes she can send "hopeful dispatches from the frontlines of [the] struggle" with mental illness, and dispatch she does. Back in 2014, Dunham's memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, included a list of things that keep her up at night, including but not limited to: "appendicitis, typhoid, leprosy, unclean meat, foods I haven't seen emerge from their packaging, foods my mother hasn't tasted first so that if we die we die together, homeless pe ...

Why You Should Travel To Lake Como During The Off Season
Huffington Post - over 1 year
It is like being at the center of the world with its villas reminiscent of One Thousand and One Nights, golf and windsurfing, the Campione and Lugano casinos from just beyond the mountains, Milan’s shopping and nightlife only an hour away, and a wealth of Hollywood A-listers (obviously like George Clooney, but many others as well). Welcome to Lario Lake. Or rather, Lake Como and its 109-mile perimeter, shaped like an upside-down Y, vaunting an unrivalled draw for tourists. A place where it is not uncommon to chance upon young newlyweds with friends and relatives. In fact, Villa Balbaniello is one of the most sought- after wedding venues in the world (with 120 “yeses” just last year alone). It is surely appealing also because of the idea that this is the lake of the stars. Julia Roberts and Brooke Shields were seen there this year and Brangelina and the Beckhams make regular visits, as do Tom Cruise and Elton John. Yet it goes without saying – a major part of this new wave ...

    More Details Hide Details

    More Details Hide Details Shields accepted Cruise's apology, which she said was "heartfelt."
  • THIRTIES
  • 2005
    Age 39
    The actress responded to a further attack by Cruise in an essay "War of Words" published in The New York Times on July 1, 2005, in which she made an individual case for the medication and said, "In a strange way, it was comforting to me when my obstetrician told me that my feelings of extreme despair and my suicidal thoughts were directly tied to a biochemical shift in my body.
    More Details Hide Details Once we admit that postpartum is a serious medical condition, then the treatment becomes more available and socially acceptable. With a doctor's care, I have since tapered off the medication but, without it, I wouldn't have become the loving parent I am today."
    Between April and May 2005, Shields spoke to magazines (such as Guideposts) and appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show to publicize her battle with postpartum depression, an experience that included depression, thoughts of suicide, an inability to respond to her baby's needs and delayed maternal bonding.
    More Details Hide Details The illness may have been triggered by a traumatic childbirth, the death of her father three weeks earlier, stress from in vitro fertilization, a miscarriage and a family history of depression, as well as the hormones and life changes which were brought on by childbirth. Her book, Down Came the Rain, discusses her experience, contributing to a greater public awareness of postpartum depression. In May 2005, Tom Cruise, an actor and scientologist whose beliefs frown upon psychiatry, condemned Brooke, both personally and professionally, for both using and speaking in favor of the antidepressant drug Paxil. As Cruise said, "Here is a woman and I care about Brooke Shields, because I think she is an incredibly talented woman, you look at think, where has her career gone?" Shields responded that Cruise's statements about anti-depressants were "irresponsible" and "dangerous." She said that he should "stick to fighting aliens" (a reference to Cruise's starring role in War of the Worlds as well as some of the more exotic aspects of Scientology doctrine and teachings), "and let mothers decide the best way to treat postpartum depression."
  • 2001
    Age 35

  • 1989

    Shields is also a well-known vegan and an animal rights activist. However, despite coming out against the fur industry in 1989, Shields later went on to create her own mink fur coat at Kopenhagen Fur.
    More Details Hide Details She came under the scrutiny of animal rights organizations such as PETA for this visit, which prompted media attention.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1981
    Age 15
    She was also the youngest person to host ABC's Fridays, a Saturday Night Live-like sketch comedy show, in 1981.
    More Details Hide Details In one episode of the popular comedy sitcom Friends, Shields played Joey's stalker. This role led directly to her being cast in the NBC sitcom Suddenly Susan, in which she starred from 1996 until 2000, and which earned a People's Choice Award in the category of Favorite Female Performer in a New Television Series for her, in 1997, and two Golden Globe nominations. In the early 1980s, she starred in the USPHS PSA sponsored by the American Lung Association as an initiative that VIPs should become examples and advocates of non-smoking. In the mid-1980s, Brooke began her support of the USO by touring with Bob Hope. Shields made a couple of guest appearances on That '70s Show. She played Pam Burkhart, Jackie's (Mila Kunis) mother, who later was briefly involved with Donna's (Laura Prepon) father (played by Don Stark). Shields left That '70s Show when her character was written out. Shields recorded the narration for the Sony/BMG recording of The Runaway Bunny, a concerto for violin, orchestra, and reader, by Glen Roven. It was performed by the Royal Philharmonic and Ittai Shapira.
    She won the People's Choice Award in the category of Favorite Young Performer in four consecutive years from 1981 to 1984.
    More Details Hide Details In 1998, she played a lesbian, Lily, in The Misadventures of Margaret.

    From 1981 to 1983, Shields, her mother, photographer Garry Gross, Playboy Press and the New York City Courts were involved in litigation over the rights to some photographs her mother had signed away to the photographer (when dealing with models who are also minors, a parent or legal guardian must sign such a release form while other agreements are subject to negotiation) which were originally intended to appear in a book titled Sugar and Spice to be published by Playboy Press.
    More Details Hide Details The courts ruled in favor of the photographer, but due to a strange twist in New York law, it would have been otherwise had Brooke Shields been considered a child "performer" rather than a model. By the age of 16, Shields had become one of the most recognizable faces in the United States, because of her dual career as a provocative fashion model and controversial child actress.
