Brooke Shields says Bradley Cooper came to her aid after suffering grand mal seizure: ‘odd and surreal’

Brooke Shields revealed she suffered from a grand mal seizure this year and received help from an unexpected hero.

In her Glamour 2023 Women of the Year interview, Shields shared that she experienced a grand mal seizure before a performance of her one-woman show “Previously Owned by Brooke Shields,” at New York City’s Café Carlyle. 

“I was preparing for the show, and I was drinking so much water, and I didn’t know I was low in sodium. I was waiting for an Uber. I get down to the bottom of the steps, and I start evidently looking weird, and [the people I was with] were like, ‘Are you okay?’” she recalled. 

Shields remembered she left the venue for “no reason at all. I’m like, ‘Why am I out here?’”

“So as a 58-year-old woman, I’m not limiting my salt, okay? Stop trying to make me a crazy actress or a female that doesn’t know what the f— they’re doing. I was drinking too much water because I felt dehydrated because I was singing more than I’ve ever sung in my life and doing a show and a podcast.” 

To aid in her salt intake, Shield said “they were just like, ‘Eat potato chips every day.’”
