Brooke Shields

Brooke Shields has recently commented that she would not have plastic surgery due to her "claustrophobia." She stated, "I tried, like, Botox in my forehead... I got so claustrophobic. I would get claustrophobia if I had breast implants. I'd be like, 'Get them out, get them out.' My husband's very upset about that though. "It's a very foreign, man-made object in your body... I'm also attached to my face. It's been around in the public eye for so long."
Now, I get claustrophobic myself when lying in the bottom bunk of a bunkbed or trying to sleep in "couchettes" when riding the trains in Europe, but I've never had a patient complain about claustrophobia with plastic surgery.

Maybe she was afraid that Santa would give her plastic surgery for Christmas and she meant to say that she was "Claus-trophobic."

Or, maybe she just doesn't know what the term really means...

(Apologies for the bad pun!)

Exactly, I really dont get the connection. Plastic surgery and claustrophobia just dont match.

Why......why..............why would claustrophobia even be an issue?

Me thinks Brook may have already had some very well done plastic surgery --- her eyes perhaps?? Me thinks this may be case of the lady doth protest too much.

My best,

I think I understand where she's coming from - for example, I had my lip pierced, and went through a few weeks where I felt anxious about something being in my body that I couldn't take out (I didn't know at the time, that I could take the ring out with reverse pliers).

It felt kind of like I wanted to rip the ring out of my lip; even though I had wanted it pierced for so long, I had to work not to feel 'trapped' by the ring.

Sound crazy? I hope not. But I do understand what Brooke was talking about.

I get the same thing, if I have my teeth fixed in the very back molars, I have an anxiety attack. I've had times where I felt like pulling out my crowns.

And to think Brook went to college.

Seriously though, I've often thought that in recent years Brooke has really lost her beauty. Now she looks a little hard and haunted if you know what I mean. I attribute that to the post-natal depression. Nothing ages more than illness.
