Brooke Shields and Oprah

1 of 9
Two years ago the world was charmed by this beautiful new movie-star mother and her newborn baby daughter. But behind closed doors, Brooke Shields was falling apart, descending into a downward spiral of misery and despair—a depression so strong, she says, she even considered taking her own life.

Brooke is talking for the first time about her mental collapse, the disturbing voices she heard in her head and how she managed to survive the darkest period of her life. Her new book is called Down Came The Rain.
