Book Description

Jan. 1 2020
Sadie Frost's tell-all covers her anarchic childhood, her two high-profile marriages, and finally growing up

 

Sadie Frost has had an extraordinary life, from her humble roots in 1960s Britain to her middle-class adult life, via her two high-profile marriages and living out her life in the media spotlight. In this candid book, Sadie tells her life story in her own style. She discloses the details of her absolutely unique childhood and teenage years; she tells all the behind-the-scenes stories from the films she has worked on, including staying at Francis Ford Coppola's Hollywood home; and she reveals the story of her marriage to Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, and how she left her idyllic family life with him when she met Jude Law on the set of the film Shopping, later marrying him. She also discusses, at length, her life with Law, including her struggles with crippling postnatal depression. This is the story of a woman finding herself again—against all the odds—and finally growing up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Coming of Age Meets Middle Age Sept. 15 2011
By Ria Darling - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Unlike other reviews, I don't really know the scoop on her relationship with Jude Law. Nor did I buy the book for that, I really bought it becuase she was a bit of an It girl for the late 80's-90's with her relationship with Gary Kemp (Spandau Ballet) and in Coppola's Dracula. The book is good and full of little nuggets about other celebs (Kate Moss, Gavin Rossdale,Carl Barat from the Libertines) but it's not very reflective. She tells the story of her hippie/artist parents (with 9+ step-siblings), being on her own since 16 and it's easy to see how her upbringing has played a role in her adult relationships. However, she rarely attributes insight or emotion or explains her behaviour. It would be a more interesting book if she did. It's a quick read and enjoyable and made me like her (rather than envy her).

4.0 out of 5 stars A sad but honest story May 3 2013
By John F. Mollard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My introduction to Sadie Frost was Bram Stoker's Dracula in November 1992. Upon seeing the movie I was instantly smitten with her beauty in the role of the doomed Lucy Westenra. I bought the Making Of book, the expensive Criterion laserdisc, soundtrack, novels, etc. I even had a poster of Sadie in her vamped out form on my bedroom wall. I've been a fan of hers ever since. My fave roles of hers are Dracula (hard to watch the film now without cringing at the awful dialogue and subpar performances by Keanu and Winona. Only the British actors are good.), The Cisco Kid, and Pyromaniac's Love Story (got the poster too). Up until this book's publication, I knew very little about Sadie's early life. And, now that I've read her autobiography, I can't help but feel sorry for her. Such a terrible childhood. I know exactly what it's like to have a chronically angry father. Mine was pretty bad too. It's amazing to read Sadie still found the ability to still love such a monster after witnessing such anger and abuse to her family. I also had no idea she had a bad lung. And her manic depression? I know what that's like too. I've struggled with it all my life. I hope and pray I don't turn into my father either.

Yes, I quite enjoyed this autobiography. I read a lot of celebrity bios, but this one seemed one of the more honest. Letting everything out on the line can be truly painful, but also very therapeutic at the same time. My only complaint would be: I wish she wrote more about her various films. Barely mentions them at all. Only the pivotal ones that helped her breakthrough. I like the stuff on how she got the Dracula role, especially the "shaving" bit. Hilarious.

As a movie geek, I enjoyed this book. Not a masterpiece, but I certainly found it enlightening. You think you know everything about someone from all the headlines, but that's not always true. How little I knew about this one.

"Nighty night. Sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite."

From one author (I wrote the forthcoming LA noir novel MACGUFFIN) to another (Sadie Frost)... chin up, stand tall, keep moving forward, and never look back.

"When things are at their darkest, pal, it's a brave man who can kick back and party."

Cheers...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my - nor Sadie's - cup of tea. Sept. 9 2012
By Tony Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sadie Frost has, so far, led an unconventional life. That much is true. What I'm not so sure about is the remainder of the content of this autobiography. I'm really having a hard time believing that she can remember verbatim conversations she had with her father as a 2 year old. That really just doesn't ever happen. Also, the book is partly written in a style that read like she's the age she was during the events described. That is, her descriptions of anything from recreational drugs to the band Oasis come over as hackneyed and forced. It's 'Mummy' this and 'a band called the Gallaghers' that; only later on does she revert to conventional storytelling.

Also irritating, her missing out the 'drugs on the floor at birthday party' incident, claiming that 'legal reasons' prevented her from spilling the beans. Not surprisingly, I came away knowing almost nothing of Jude Law, only slightly more about Gary Kemp and, I have to say, less about Sadie than before I picked up the book.

She's an artist? Artiste? Songwriter? Actress? Down-to-earth-mom-of-four? None of these maybe? While these days do read as crazy, one cannot help thinking that most of the craziness has been self-inflicted. Sadie's looks have given her more chances in life than you or me, but even with that, she's gone a long way to screwing a lot of them up.
3.0 out of 5 stars good to read on the plane April 27 2014
By Kayenne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have paid attention to Sadie Frost every since I started reading the Daily Mail, which has been about five years now. Over the course of the years, she seems to be a lightweight woman. This book doesn't stray far from that impression. Yes, she is honest about her life. ( At least, about what she is legally able to reveal. Jude Law went to court and had sordid details about their marriage and children removed.) But somehow, there is something very trite about Sadie Frost. She even admits to being as common as they come after noting she was being cast as elegant women for music videos. This is a very simple memoir, no uncommon insights were seen in my opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars A train wreck of her own making... June 15 2011
By RobertsLadyDove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This woman really needs to get a life, a real job, and stop leeching off of her ex-husband by writing a tell-all with lurid descriptions of her sordid, messed-up life. Cracks me up how the publisher ends the review of the book as "the story of a woman...finding herself and....finally growing up." Are you serious? She's forty-something going on fifteen, and STILL harboring a huge teenage crush on Jude Law. More like the story of a woman who CAN'T grow up, CAN'T let go of her ex husband, Jude Law, and still insists that the majority of her marital problems, postpartum depression, suicidal tendencies, etc., all stemmed mainly from his "inattentiveness". The fact that Sadie preferred to have sex with her best friend & bed buddy Kate Moss over her own husband makes one wonder how, if at all, one could blame Jude for his lack of interest in her after some point, since she's the one who ignored HIM to be with another WOMAN. Not to mention cutting herself intentionally and also proceeding to blame him for this as well, along with her postpartum depression, other self-destructive behavior, and even though I didn't find it in the book, probably the Kennedy assassination as well... She's not exactly mother of the year, either; she allows her boy toys, who are all roughly 24-25 years old (the age of her oldest son) live in the basement of her home, plus she allowed her 2 year-old daughter eat an Ecstasy pill off of the floor of a nightclub that she was at while attending a CHILD'S birthday party while she & her drugged out friends partied obliviously. If exploiting her & Jude's marital relationship & her own children (thankfully Jude managed to get an injunction preventing Sadie from printing some pics of his kids in this trite, nonsensical book) by trying to make a sorry buck off of this so-called "autobiography" constitutes "finally growing up", I think something's gotten lost in the translation of that phrase. Fortunately I borrowed this book from a friend; I would never waste the money on this "tell-all" exploit to help this loser try and leech any further money off her relationship with her celebrity ex; if she truly HAD grown up, she wouldn't still feel the need to continue travelling with Jude for every holiday he takes with his children. It's time for Ms. Frost to get over Jude & move on with her life, find a new boyfriend/girlfriend/whatever and once for all get a grip on reality. Only THEN would I even begin to consider that this woman has "grown up".
