The photo was likely taken while Brooke was already modeling. She started modeling and acting at the age of 11 months. She got her first major movie role in Pretty Baby at the age of 12. You may also remember Brooke’s famous Calvin Klein ads when she was 14 years old.

While it seems that Brooke had some fun growing up in the spotlight, she doesn’t really want her daughters to do the same. She has two daughters, Rowan, 16 and Grier, 13. She once said, “Times are different. I wouldn’t let my children join the industry until they’ve graduated from college. They need a degree, and then at that point, I’ll help them do whatever they want.”
