Brooke: Brendan is a little kid
Brooke Shields has said that working with Brendan Fraser on Furry Vengeance allowed her to "be a little kid again".
The actress, who has two children, stars in the children's movie which is about forest animals taking revenge on a property developer.
She said: "I don't think it was like, 'Oh I've had kids, I'm only going to do kids movies', it's just... there's a reason. I can be a little kid again, working with Brendan, he's a little kid."
She continued: "That's what he is, he's a little kid at heart. He's a genius but he's also a little kid. I think when you have kids you get to live that part of your life again or maybe for the first time."
Brooke added that she wouldn't like her children Rowan and Grier to go into showbusiness as young as she did.
She said: "I wouldn't encourage them, that all being said, it's a business that predicates itself on eating its young, it's all about disappointment and rejection and, 'pick me, pick me, pick me' so I would hope they don't want to do it, but you know what? I'm not going to deny them, I'll try and help them, they have to get an education, that's my one prerequisite."
:: Furry Vengeance is released in cinemas on May 7.
