‘Furry Vengeance’ fits with star’s advocacy

DALLAS — Brooke Shields, hailed as Time magazine’s "Face of the 1980s,” has been in the public eye from the time she was a child.

"Acting was the only thing that gave me a childhood,” she said at a press tour promoting her latest film, "Furry Vengeance,” with Brendan Fraser.

As an adult, she’s become an advocate for children, working for children’s literacy, writing children’s books and sometimes making family films. Why does she have an interest in helping children?

"It boils down to respect,” Shields said. "I’ve always believed that they’re pure, and they don’t deserve so much of what they have to endure.”

With two kids of her own, Shields said children can tell whether they are being patronized.

"It doesn’t have to be stupid just because it’s for kids,” Shields said. "They’re highly intelligent individuals.”

In "Furry Vengeance,” Shields plays Tammy Sanders, the wife of developer Dan Sanders (Brendan Fraser). He’s trying to develop a pristine forest into a housing division at the bequest of his smarmy boss, Neal Lyman (Ken Jeong).
