Brooke Shields' mirror phobia

Brooke Shields hates looking in the mirror.

The 'Lipstick Jungle' star is so paranoid about her looks she avoids looking at her reflection at all costs.

She said: "I just came from a spinning class and the teacher pushed me into the front row. I never do that. I hate looking at myself. When I took dance classes, I'd fall over because I wouldn't look at myself in the mirror. I'm always the one wearing baggy pants and a long-sleeved shirt to exercise in, drenched in sweat."

The 42-year-old actress, a former child star, also admits she is struggling to come to terms with getting older.

The mother-of-two told Parade magazine: "I keep thinking I'm younger than I am. The other day, I was working with a photographer to recreate an image we had done years ago. When I saw my face, I kind of went, 'What is that?' I assumed I was going to look the same, and I didn't. It was a shock to my system."
