Christie Brinkley - Brinkley Froze For Topless Vacation Pool Scene Shoot
Model-turned-actress Christie Brinkley still shivers at the thought of recreating her iconic National Lampoon's Vacation swimming pool scene - because she did it recently on one of Los Angeles' coldest nights on record.
The sexy star agreed to re-do the topless scene she shot with Chevy Chase for a TV commercial and found herself freezing in icy water.
She explains, "It was, like, one in the morning... and the swimming pool was steaming and they couldn't have the steam, so they had to make the water as cold as the temperature outside, so they had huge blocks of ice going in and they had drained everything and put in the coldest water.
"I'm down in the pool in nothing but a G-string... My lips would freeze, so they would have to get me out the pool to put me in a bathtub to thaw me out. I had to, like, go up the pool ladder with nothing much on."
