Talking about her daughters Rowan, 7, and Grier, 4, Brooke revealed to Psychologies magazine, “I would never start them as young as I did.” Brooke was a controversial child star – in her first feature film role at 11, she played a catholic schoolgirl butchered during her first communion. Straight after she was cast as a 12-year-old prostitute in hit movie Pretty Baby. She then appeared naked in Blue Lagoon aged 15.

However, Brooke’s reasons for wanting a different life for her daughters are surprising – the 45-year-old reveals it’s because she hasn’t got the time!

“For a start, my life isn’t conducive to that. Selfishly, I wouldn’t give up on my career to work on theirs. But if, when they have finished their education and they want to do it, I will do whatever I can to help them.”
