Summary
Teen runaway, supermodel, and actress Carré Otis found herself in the public eye from a very tender age. Millions of people saw provocative images of her in magazine and billboard ads as well as in features on the pages of Playboy and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. By the time she was twenty, they had also seen her on posters for the controversial film Wild Orchid, with Mickey Rourke. The troubled marriage to Rourke that followed soon thereafter was widely reported on, as were Carré's struggles with drugs and a particularly brutal eating disorder. But after a decade-long reflective and spiritual journey, Carré found the balance and serenity she sought and is ready to share her side of the story with the world. The result is a narrative of success, despair, and ultimate triumph over exploitation and our cultural obsession with appearance--a narrative of beauty disrupted and reclaimed through self-acceptance and the love of family.--From publisher description
