"I was going to have to. I'm Carly Zac and I'm Danielle weissberg. Welcome to 9 to 5 ish with the skin. We've run into so many questions over the years and had so many moments where we needed advice and we got it from women who'd been there. And that's what we're bringing you at this show. Each week we're helping you get what you want out of your career by talking to the smartest leaders we know. Because we know your work life is a lot more than 9 to 5. All right, let's get into it. Today, our guest is Brooke Shields. She has been a household name almost since birth from doing her first commercial at 11 months old to a Calvin Klein genes campaign at 14. She achieved notoriety through blockbuster movies in the 1980s, like the Blue Lagoon and endless love. Since then, Brooks becoming a Broadway actress starred in sitcoms and TV dramas, written two books and raised two daughters. And now, she is starring in and producing the upcoming Netflix Christmas movie a castle for Christmas. Brooke, we are so excited to have you. Welcome. Oh, thank you. Thank you for welcoming me. So before we get into the conversation, we like to warm up. We're going to do a lightning round. Quick questions, quick answers. Let's do it. What is a secret hobby or skill that you have? My secret hobby is needlepoint. Oh, that's a really good one. I am needle pointing a backgammon board. Like I have to be on the set doing something like some kind of craft or something. Okay. What is the last show that you binge watched? Oh, I haven't seen it, but I heard I would really like it. Oh, please, Rhonda walk. Okay, my next question, you have starred in many things that are beloved shows and movies of mine. But one of my most favorite roles you've done is when you were on Broadway and you played Rizzo in Greece. Oh my goodness. How old were you? You must have been a baby. I was a child, but I remember vividly. What is your favorite line or song from Greece? There are worse things I could do. Fair. When was the last time you negotiated for yourself? About 20 minutes ago. Where did you negotiate? I negotiated someone's fee for a perspective job. How does taking time to slow down fuel you to move forward? I never slowed down in my life till more recently in the past few years. And the fuel that I get from just doing something healing for myself sometimes that can just be hanging out with a friend or watching movies or doing something where there's where the regular noise is stopped. I find that I reemerge from that even stronger and more powerful. I just it's almost like that time the energy starts and it starts building up. Okay, we're going to move into the meat of our show. You started working when you were you couldn't even walk. You were less than a year old. And then you became famous as a teenager. You've talked a lot publicly about what your family dynamic was and what a unique childhood you had. But what was your support system? How did you basically stay normal? There's a few elements that I think my mother set in motion. She never moved us out of the east coast. We never went and moved to Hollywood and pursued all of that, which is rushing to high school and basically only being educated onset. And I think that even just that element for sure gave me a perspective and a more grounded way of being in the world. And when that's all you know, regular great schools, regular high schools. I think you really do have an understanding that the world you may inhabit at certain times is not real. It's just not your real world. It's kind of crazy. It is something that you can go in and out of to a certain extent. And the other piece is my mom always made sure I had someone my own age around me. So I always had a partner in crime. You know, I never felt like I was the only kid in a sea of adults. And my parents never spoke ill of the other. I mean, they got divorced when I was 5 months old. My father's family is so the opposite of any way that I grew up with my mother or my working life. And I was talking about this today, I've got this movie coming out and it's coming out the day after Thanksgiving. And everybody in my life outside of my family, they're all going to watch it. And I know for a fact that I'm going to get to my family in Florida. And it's not even going to be mentioned. And it's funny because my feelings aren't hurt or anything, but that's how I grew up. My youngest sister grew up with not an inkling of what I did. And it wasn't until she got much older and friends of hers would say things like that's your sister. And it's so interesting that sort of power of that kind of compartmentalizing. And sometimes it's not good, but it really served me. You know, I'm going to go down to be like, no one's going to watch my movie, but it's okay. Well now because they're going to listen to this podcast. No, but it's like, you know, and I never hurt my feelings that actually just helped me understand that, you know, it's not everything. It's not the only thing. And if I sat and said my sister down and said, look, this is really important to me. Please watch it. They would watch it. You know, it's interesting. On this show, Danielle and I were cofounders and we're friends and we talk about how unique it is that ten years in, we're sorely friends and cofounders of a business. We've had people on here that also are cofounders and friends or work with family or work with spouses and just kind of the unique dynamic of bringing work home, home to work into your personal life. You and your mom in particular were infamously just this tight type duo for so much of your career where she was your manager. She was with you for all of your early success. I would love to understand how you dealt with that, both the good part and maybe the parts that you're like, I wouldn't repeat. Your advice to those who think about working with family or working with those kind of closer to them. You know, I think it's always brought no matter how you look at it and boundaries are the most important thing. On the one hand, I think family you can trust more than anybody. Friends, family. On the other hand, if money is involved, that's when it gets tricky. I think full communication has to happen. I was very enmeshed with my mom. I knew nothing other than being in this industry that I was in kind of it happened to both of us and not knowing any other way in hindsight. I think it would have been healthier to have a bit more of a delineation between my professional life and my mom, however the way she protected me in an industry that basically devours its young. You know, I never had a me too moment when all the other young people were, you know, I was she was so avaricious sleep.

"A fresh take on all things life money and what really matters featuring stories from real people and tips from real pros. We'll explain more in a bit, but first, let's get into the episode. To succeed as a black female in the world that we live in, that I needed to try to be basically the best at what I was going to do. And that I couldn't be scared of anything. I needed to be prepared as much as I could be at all times. I'm Carly Zac and I'm Danielle weissberg. Welcome to 9 to 5 ish with the skin. We've run into so many questions over the years and had so many moments where we needed advice and we got it from women who'd been there. And that's what we're bringing you at this show. Each week we're helping you get what you want out of your career by talking to the smartest leaders we know. Because we know your work life is a lot more than 9 to 5. All right, let's get into it. Hey everyone, it's Danielle. Today, my guest is Shawna Thomas. When Shauna was just 13, she won a college scholarship for promising kids in Houston. From there, she started her career in journalism, working her way from intern to senior producer at NBC. She's won multiple awards throughout her career Emmys, Howard scripts, a Gracie and a Peabody. Now she's the executive producer for CVS mornings, which millions of people watch every day. Shauna, welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. And we worked together at NBC for a brief period of time. I was going to start off by saying that my intro would not be complete without saying that when I first started at NBC News, Shauna was working there. We were in the D.C. bureau and I was in total awe of just watching her work with such confidence. And I still remember one of my biggest fails that I always tell people to do is don't be afraid to email someone. Don't be afraid to ask someone for coffee. Take them out, like, worse thing they can do is say no. And I must have written ten draft emails to send to you. That was one of the times where I was too shy to send an email. So I'm very excited to have you on today. Well, I mean, with what you've created with the skim, there was a period of time where I was like, I really should have gotten a know her. We like to start things off with a lightning round. So quick questions, quick answers. You ready? Sure. First job on your resume. NBC News is the first thing and I do still list that I was in news.

"Fidelity, a fresh take on all things life money and what really matters featuring stories from real people and tips from real pros. We'll explain more in a bit, but first, let's get into the episode. When you're younger, people say to you, like you're lucky to be even having this opportunity, but that's where people take advantage. And if they are actually somebody who's respectable, they won't have a problem with you doing your due diligence to protect yourself. I'm Carly Zac and I'm Danielle weissberg. Welcome to 9 to 5 ish with the skin. We've run into so many questions over the years and had so many moments where we needed advice and we got it from women who'd been there. And that's what we're bringing you at this show. Each week we're helping you get what you want out of your career by talking to the smartest leaders we know. Because we know your work life is a lot more than 9 to 5. All right, let's get into it. Today, our guest is Emily ratajkowski. She's a model who's been on the cover of Sports Illustrated and walked the runways in Paris and Milan. She's also acted and blockbuster hits, including gone girl. Recently, she's launched her own swimsuit line, which won her awards as a fashion designer and Emily was named on the Forbes 30 under 30 list. And last fall, she published an essay that went viral in the cut, which zoomed in on objectification and abuse of power. She's now about to release her book. My body, Emily, welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. We are going to jump in the way we like to jump at all conversations with a warmup and a quick lightning round to get to know you better. Quick answers, are you ready? Yes, let's do it. Okay, first job on your resume. Model. What is your most recent job? Writer. Any secret hobbies or skills? I'm not terrible at interior design. I'm sitting in my living room and I'm like, you know what? It looks good. It looks terrible. I'm really good at it. So I love this is totally more of a hobby floral arrangement. I also got really into that during quarantine. Really? What's the last show you binge watch? Oh God. I guess white lotus I binge watch. That's just the one that's coming to mind, but I feel like there was probably another one that was more terrible. Finish the sentence. What best describes your work day, working 9 till blank, working 9 till 9. I feel like my work kind of never stops, which is good because it's like can be on the go. So it means, you know, I'm not sitting at a desk and clocking in and out. But also it kind of means that finding true time where I'm not working is very rare. When was the last time you negotiated for yourself? I'm negotiating an hour ago. What were you negotiating? Some outlet leaked something that they weren't supposed to, and I'm trying to decide if I'm going to still talk to them or what I'm going to try to negotiate out of their mistake. To be clear, it was not the scam. It was not the skin. Thank you. No. On a bad day, what is your go to snack? What's the food that will make you happy? I love a massaman curry. When did you feel like you made it? I don't think I have ever felt that way maybe. For better and for worse. And probably our most important question of the show, what is your go to karaoke song? Okay, so it used to be doo wop that thing or in film. Which is so hard. Yeah, that's a challenge. Also the wrap. I appreciated that you put it in your book as something that was ambitious. It was a hard song. Yeah. Yeah, it's very ambitious. Okay, so let's talk about your new book, my body. It's a collection of self reflective essays. What made you want to talk about the experiences that you go into the book at this moment in your life and your career, why now? So it started out as a real personal project for me more than anything. I just, you know, was processing a lot of ideas and thoughts I had less around personal experience, but more about my political beliefs and things I believed in general about our culture and our world, or my experience as a woman. And how it had led me to these kind of systems of belief. And through that I ended up revisiting a lot of specific experiences. But I certainly I didn't sit down at any point but think I'm going to write about this thing that happened or whatever. And actually, a lot of the things that are in the book were things that I had never talked about before, or moments that I had forgotten until I was writing and thinking about these ideas and really asking myself, why do you feel that way? Or what are the experiences that have led you to think in the ways that I do? Why did you choose essays? I love essays. I've always liked reading them. I feel like in our day and age, short attention span wise, it's a really nice way to pick something up and put it down and feel like there's an idea. I also just like the liberty that you can have with an essay where you can really make big kind of stylistic choices and we four different narratives together or just kind of try something totally out there. And I don't really like reading memoirs. It's interesting because when I was reading it, you actually hit on what I didn't really put together, but that I'm used to reading memoirs or novels that are going on. And when I was reading the essays, I was like, oh, like, bam, bam, bam, and it was feeding into what I do all day, which is look at things in vignettes and pieces and moments in time. But I think it does speak to the moment that you're writing all of this in and piecing it together. Yeah, I'm happy to hear that because I'm not a musician, but I love a really good album where you're like, and then that song comes on and it's just like, what you need after the last one. So I think of books that way. And you know, it's harder to do that with a memoir. I think just nonfiction in general can be kind of constrictive.
