Kim Kardashian only posed for Playboy because her mother told her to.
The socialite admits she regrets baring all for the publication in December 2007, but was urged to do so by mother Kris Jenner to promote their ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ TV programme.
She said: “I’m sorry I did Playboy. I was uncomfortable. “‘Go for it,’ my mother said, ‘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.’ “
However, posing in another naked shoot for Harper’s Bazaar, the 29-year-old beauty admits she feels more comfortable this time around.
She told the magazine: “It’s definitely scary, but it’s very liberating. 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 proud of it now.’
“I might have a little bit of cellulite. I might not be toned everywhere. I might struggle in this area or that.”
Meanwhile, Kim has come under fire for posting a picture on twitter with her holding a cat by the scruff of its neck. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) issued a statement criticising her behaviour.
The statement said: “Kim Kardashian isn’t the only person who mistakenly thinks that because a mother cat picks up her kittens by the scruff of the neck that a supportive hand under the rump isn’t needed.”
However, the brunette beauty has defended her actions and insists the animal is “fine”.
She said: “I have been getting negative comments regarding the way I was holding the kitty, but rest assured, the owner and vet were on set and showed me how to pick him up.
“The cat was not harmed in any way and is perfectly fine! I love animals and would never do anything to harm any animals.”
