Shields recently described how she was left red-faced, when her friend discovered her fake eyelashes in her car. “I was driving once with my best friend - this was when I was in my 20s," the New York Daily News quoted her as saying. She added: “I remember ripping my faux eyelashes off because they were driving me crazy, and sticking them under her dashboard."
But what looked like a good idea, turned out to be an embarrassment of a lifetime, when Shields got a call from her pal.
“She said, 'Um, Brooke? I found your fake eyelashes stuck under my dashboard - why the hell did you put them there?" I was so embarrassed!" said Shields. She added: “'And then I decided to put them on, so I"m wearing them today!" I was hysterical. How gross, right? I used to use so much glue to keep those things on."
