Kate Moss Says She Felt ‘Scared’ During Topless Calvin Klein Shoot With Mark Whalberg
Kate Moss has revealed that she doesn’t remember her topless 1992 Calvin Klein photo shoot experience being a positive one.
She told BBC’s Desert Island Discs about her shoot with Mark Wahlberg, saying she had “not very good memories” from the campaign.
For the photo shoot, Moss and Wahlberg pressed against one another in black-and-white photos. Moss said Wahlberg did not make her feel welcome on set.
“He was very macho, and it was all about him,” she said of the Wahlberg. “He had a big entourage.”
“I was just this kind of model,” Moss said. She revealed she also felt objectified on set.
“Yeah, completely. And vulnerable and scared,” she said. “I think they played on my vulnerability.”
Moss was 18 years old when she did the Calvin Klein campaign, and she thinks her youth was part of her appeal.
“I was quite young and innocent, so Calvin loved that,” she said.
Moss also said she was so anxious before the shoot that a doctor prescribed her Valium to keep her calm.
“I really didn’t feel well at all before the shoot. For like a week or two, I couldn’t get out of bed, and I had severe anxiety,” she said, adding that her anxiety “would manifest as nausea.”
