Brook attended the Thomas Aveling School and then studied at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. As a child she watched 'Fame," and said to her mom, "I want to go to a school like that."
Kelly Brook took a stage name because "my friends and family know me as Kelly Parsons. Kelly Brook is a stage name, so it makes a difference between the celebrity side of your life and your real life. I don't get out of bed every morning looking like I do on an FHM cover. It's good to separate the two" (metro.co.uk).
Kelly Brook began modeling at 16 after winning a beauty competition. Afterwards, she worked on a range of ad campaigns, including Foster's, Renault, Walker's crisps, Piz Buin and Bravissimo. She eventually became a Page Three girl. Kelly was once voted the sexiest woman in the world by the readers of FHM and has been described as a cross between a Vargas girl and a Disney cartoon with big, brown eyes and a wide, easy smile (guardian.co.uk).
Kelly Brook said of her "Sexiest Woman" title, "It's sweet, but a bit embarrassing" (metro.co.uk).
Kelly Brook has appeared in GQ, Loaded and FHM, as well as Playboy. She also represents Axe bodyspray. As far as television, she has appeared on "Strictly Come Dancing," and was a judge on "Britain's Got Talent."
When asked if she thinks women find her threatening, Kelly Brook said, "I hope not. I don't think so. I think maybe when I was younger but not now." Regarding her sexually alluring photos when she was a teenager, Kelly said, "When you look at those pictures from that time, I had the body of a porn star and the face of a child. That was probably the appeal and why I was successful. That's the sad truth of it for me."
Kelly Brook added in a later interview, "I love my body. The curvier I am, the happier I am. I think that's true of most girls. The heavier I am, the more I like my boobs and bum, and the happier I look.I'd rather eat and have boobs, a bum and a bit of overhang than be really skinny and sad, saggy boobs and a flat bum. You have to make a choice and then love yourself" (skinnyvscurvy.com).
Kelly Brook was expecting a baby with rugby player Thom Evans, but she had a miscarriage. She was also once engaged to actor Billy Zane.
Kelly Brook spends her time between Los Angeles and London.
