56-year-old Brooke Shields is still recovering after breaking her femur. Back in January 2021, she fell off a balance board and broke her femur. It has been a long recovery process and while Brook said that she is doing well, she is still trying to gain her strength back.
Brooke said, “The bone is all healed and everything is sort of where it should be, and I don’t walk with a limp anymore, but my strength is really compromised. I thought I had my strength back until I started to try to do certain things. And so now I have to sort of amp that up a little bit.”

She added that it has been a lot of work to recover from such a major injury and she had to change her mindset many times. However, she’s back to work and she has been partnering with a wine company called Clos du Bois. She hopes to help tackle ageism in the alcohol industry.

Brooke shared, “As far as things like alcohol advertising or just advertising in general, the 40-plus are not represented. And it really is sort of shocking to me. [Those] who are in this phase of their lives are starting the most incredible new projects and new adventures and new vocations…they’re looking towards their future.”
Brooke said that she wanted to work with the brand after seeing their campaign on alcohol ageism directed by fellow actress Courteney Cox. Great to hear that she is doing better!
