40th Aniversary The Blue Lagoon movie
The movie "The Blue Lagoon" was released in 1980. It is now 40 years old. It was a huge commercial success of the early 1980s. It stars two teenagers just beginning their professional careers. We are talking about Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins (55 and 59 years old respectively today).
Nobody in the world of cinema (neither producer, nor cinema, not even the protagonists) could imagine the commercial success they were going to have. Almost all adolescents of that time idolized the two protagonists. In almost every part they had photos or posters of Brooke and Christopher: student folders, their bedroom walls, different souvenirs (pens, cups, glasses, etc). In almost all of this there were photos or something he did about that romantic movie par excellence. Their professional lives differ somewhat since then.
Brooke Shields was for quite some time very successful in her filmography. She married tennis player Andrea Agassi from whom she later divorced and remarried her current husband Chris Henchy, having two daughters. She is still in the world of Entertainment (film and TV). He has several houses in different states and lives in Manhattan. It is estimated that he has a net worth of around € 35,000,000. ($ 40,000,000).
Regarding Christopher, he made several movies and TV movies, but nothing like the success he obtained in "The Blue Lagoon" He has also worked in Europe. He left acting and created a company, Rocky RiverOutdoorProducts, dedicated to outdoor sports. Asimosmo, has managed to patent a fishing lure. He currently lives in the San Fernando Valley (California). He has a partner, a Swedish woman named Sandra Ankarbjörk, and he has two children. Her assets are estimated at about € 1,700,000 ($ 2,000,000), much less than her co-star in "Blue Lagoon."
