Actress Brooke Shields, who turned 51 today, grew up in Englewood, graduated from Princeton, and while she now lives in Southern California (you can rent her house if you have $30,000 a month to spare), she’ll always be a Jersey girl to us! In honor of her birthday, here’s a throwback to a 1985 commercial for New Jersey tourism Shields starred in. She beckons visitors to enjoy “a perfect vacation” and declares “New Jersey and you: perfect together.” How come? Shields praises the Garden State’s beaches, parks, lakes, mountains and boardwalk games!
