Her paternal grandmother was the Italian princess Donna Marina Torlonia. During her early years, Shields lived at 73 W. 59th St. in Manhattan. She has two step-brothers and three half-sisters.



When Brooke was five days old, her mother openly stated she wanted her to have a career in show business, "She's the most beautiful child and I'm going to help her with her career."

Shields adopted her middle name, "Camille," for her Confirmation at the age of 10. During her high school years, Shields resided in Haworth, New Jersey.



When she was 12 years old, Shields played a child prostitute her age. At age 16, she had already worked for 16 years and had made more money than the President of the United States. Eileen Ford, founder of the Ford Modeling Agency, said of Brooke Shields: "...She is a professional child and unique. She looks like an adult and thinks like one."



She attended the all-female Lenox School until eighth grade, before graduating from The Dwight-Englewood School of Englewood, New Jersey in 1983.



Shields moved into the dorms of Princeton University to pursue her bachelor's degree in French literature, graduating in June 1987. While attending Princeton, she spoke openly about her sexuality and virginity. Shields was a member of the Princeton Triangle Club and the Cap and Gown Club. Her autobiography, On Your Own, was published in 1985. Her 1987 senior thesis was titled "The Initiation: From Innocence to Experience: The Pre-Adolescent/Adolescent Journey in the Films of Louis Malle, Pretty Baby and Lacombe Lucien."



In the op-ed page of The New York Times, her school records were made available shortly after the university graduation. The criticism emphasized that Shields did not take any courses in history, mathematics, economics, world literature or science with laboratory experience.
