Kelly Ripa: Brooke Shields Interview

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos welcomed actress Brooke Shields from the musical The Addams Family on Broadway. Brooke Shields towered over the couple. They started by talking about her time at Princeton, where Brooke says, “People avoided me.”

Kelly Ripa suggested it might be because people were intimidated by her beauty. Brooke Shields said she thought her notoriety from her work in films like Blue Lagoon might have been to blame. She confessed that she used a body double for her iconic role in Blue Lagoon.

Brooke Shields said that this is her first time doing eight Broadway performances a week, with two daughters. She doesn’t get to sleep till 2 a.m., but she loves that it inspires her children, who want to be Morticia and Wednesday Addams for Halloween. Her husband is very supportive of encouraging their children’s interest in theatre.


She said that it’s hard to spot people in the audience, but that it could be distracting for the actors. They do usually hear about the presence of celebrities in the audience. Sometimes notable stars are taken backstage during intermission so that they are not bothered by other patrons who recognize them.

Brooke Shields suggested that they would bring Mark Consuelos & Kelly Ripa backstage if they came to see the show. But Kelly Ripa said that they are not famous enough to be recognized out in public and don’t have throngs of fans who would mob them.

The Addams Family is at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre through December 31, 2011.
