Kim Kardashian was delighted to pose nude in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar but the reality star was less happy stripping off for a 2007 Playboy pictorial, admitting that she was “uncomfortable” doing the shoot.
“I’m sorry I did Playboy. I was uncomfortable,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star says of the feature in which she showed off her famous curves, reports Access Hollywood.
Kim said she remembers her mother, Kris Jenner, encouraging her to go through with it. “‘Go for it,’” Kim said her mother told her. “‘They might never ask you again. Our show isn’t on the air yet. No one knows who you are. Do it and you’ll have these beautiful pictures to look at when you’re my age.’”
In the latest shoot in which Kim appears unclothed and without any retouching, the newly-single beauty said, “it’s definitely scary, but it’s very liberating,” she said.
“I think the message is embrace your curves and who you are. I feel proud if young girls look up to me and say, ‘I’m curvy, and I’m proud of it now.’”
