In the interview Walters asked "Brooke, what are your measurements?," among other invasive questions in the aftermath of her notorious 1980 Calvin Klein commercial. “That Walters interview is maddening,” Shields told Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast, according to Mediaite. “It’s practically criminal,” Shields added. “It’s not journalism.” Shields also took exception with Tonight Show host Johnny Carson asking her what she would do if she wasn't an actress. “I looked at him and said, ‘Wow, someone really doesn’t want me to be an actress. Are you trying to tell me something?'” Shields recalled.
