Brooke Shields seems to be acknowledging her lack of understanding about monetary values and financial concepts. In the quote, she admits being “naive about finances” and not comprehending when her mother mentioned a specific dollar amount.

However, when her mother reframed the sum by comparing it to something more tangible and relatable – “That’s like three Mercedes” – it helped Shields grasp the scale and significance of the money being discussed.

The quote suggests that for those unfamiliar with finances, relating monetary figures to everyday expensive products or experiences one is familiar with can make large sums of money feel more real and comprehensible.

In essence, Shields is humorously pointing out how reframing dollar amounts in terms of luxury items she could envision helped a financially inexperienced person like herself finally “understand.”
