Known for decades as the little girl who started her modeling career at 5 days old, Brooke Shields is a iconic symbol of precocious innocence. She has taken on a variety of roles, from 'Friends' to 'Suddenly Susan' and even a few episodes as Miley Cyrus' mom on 'Hannah Montana,' and is now starring as a cool mom in the new family comedy 'Furry Vengeance.'

Shields is also a working mom in real life -- she has two kids with TV writer Chris Henchy. She has been laying low since last starring regularly on NBC's 'Lipstick Jungle' in 2008-09, save an appearance on Patricia Heaton's 'The Middle and at last summer's Michael Jackson memorial, where she eulogized her childhood friend.

Shields, who plays a teacher and Brendan Fraser's wife Tammy in the April 30 release, spoke with Moviefone recently about talking lionesses, making friends with a skunk and getting her comic timing just right on her new movie.
