In an interview with The New Yorker magazine, Brooke Shields returned to the black anger of Andre Agassi – who was her boyfriend at the time – when discovering the scene she played in the series “Friends”.
A special memory. In 1996, the time of an episode, Brooke Shields had inherited the role of a woman obsessed with the character of Joey – embodied on screen by Matt LeBlanc – who does not manage to make the difference between him and her role of the doctor Drake Ramoray in the soap opera “Days of Our Lives”. And who, during a dinner in her company, turns out to be totally crazy. In an interview with the prestigious magazine The New Yorker, Brooke Shields returned to the impetuous reaction of Andre Agassi, her boyfriend at the time, while he attended the filming of the episode.
As she had already described in her autobiography in 2014, the actress explains that the former tennis champion hastily left the shoot, before going to their home where he began to destroy his trophies in a fit of rage. “It was petulant behavior,” she says. “In the scene, I had to suck on Joey’s fingers, because they’re the fingers of a genius, and I want to devour them, because I’m crazy,” she recalls. It was at this precise moment that Andre Agassi left the scene. Before he explains to her the reasons for his anger.
“He said to me, ‘Everyone is laughing at me. You make me look like an idiot by behaving like this. I explained to him that I was simply playing comedy. I will learn later that he was addicted to methamphetamines at that time, and that this irrational behavior was certainly due to that, ”she continues. Brooke Shields would marry Andre Agassi in May 1997, before their divorce two years later.
