While any woman would get flattered if she they had two men fighting over her,Brooke Shields is an exception.
The Lipstick Jungle star,who was recently at the centre of a fight between Kiefer Sutherland and designer Jack McCullough,is under stress because of the scandal.
The actress was attending the Innoncence Project gala on May 6 at Cipriani Wall Street,but before reading a monologue from Bob Balabans The Exonerated,she was spotted having some serious time alone.
Although Shields had put on a happy face in public,a witness caught her sitting with her knees pulled up to her chest,hugging herself for comfort and chatting quietly into her cell phone.
It was a very private moment, the New York Daily News quoted a source as saying.
The source added: She looked really upset,overwhelmed and stressed,the complete opposite of her outward calm in public.
On May 4,Sutherland had headbutted McCullough at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in New York,to defend Shields honour.
