Brooke Shields claims JFK Jr revealed 'true colors' after she declined sexual advances on first date
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: After she declined his advances for sexual favors on their first date, Brooke Shields said that John F Kennedy Jr. seemed "less than chivalrous" towards her. The model and actor talked about her recent Hulu documentary, 'Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields,' while she was a guest on 'The Howard Stern Show' on April 4. She also discussed her brief relationship with the eldest son of John F Kennedy and Jackie Onassis.
'Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields' explores how the actor, model, and '80s celebrity found her liberty despite being sexualized at a young age. The documentary was named after the disputed 1978 movie in which Shields portrayed a prostitute at the age of 11.

'Afraid of being really hurt'
As per INSIDER, the actress said on 'The Howard Stern Show' that she "froze" at the prospect of sex after receiving the "best kiss [she’s] ever had in [her] life" from President John F. Kennedy's son following a "real date" in Aspen, Colorado. Shields told Stern that despite having "never skied before in my life," she tried to impress Kennedy by showcasing her prowess on the slopes.
Shields, a virgin at the time, didn't believe she could "handle" the possibility of the lawyer rejecting her after doing the act. The 57-year-old remembers thinking, "I was like, ‘Oh my God, you’re falling in love and if you sleep with him, he may not talk to you again.' "
The 'Endless Love' star said, "I wasn't playing a game, I really was just so afraid of being really hurt because if I slept with him I would have given him my entire universe, my heart, my everything." She continued, saying that she had been "madly in love with him since" the age of 3.
Shields was forced to fend for herself when she turned down Kennedy Jr's sexual advances because she "kind of loved him too much." She remarked, "I had to get a cab home, which was a little less chivalrous, in my opinion."
The next day, Shields recalled how Kennedy, who later married in 1996, neglected her while they were skiing. At that point, Shields knew she had made the right decision. She concluded, "He showed his true colors in that."
