Kate Moss doesn’t remember her topless Calvin Klein photo shoot fondly, as she revealed in a new radio interview.
On Sunday, Moss, 48, appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, hosted by Lauren Laverne.
During the interview, Moss discussed her 1992 Calvin Klein photo shoot with Mark Wahlberg, when he was best known as Marky Mark, in which she posed topless, telling Laverne she had “not very good memories” from the underwear campaign.
Representatives for Calvin Klein and Mark Wahlberg did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
For the shoot, shirtless Moss and Wahlberg were pressed together in black-and-white photos. Moss was only 18 years old at the time.
Speaking to Laverne, Moss said that Wahlberg did not make her feel welcome or valued on set.
“He was very macho, and it was all about him,” she said of the movie star. “He had a big entourage.”
“I was just this kind of model,” she said.
“I think they played on my vulnerability,” Moss went on to say, adding that she thinks part of her appeal to Calvin Klein was her youth.
“I was quite young and innocent, so Calvin loved that,” she
Moss, who runs the Kate Moss Agency today and represents models like her daughter Lila, also told Laverne she was so anxious before the photo shoot that a doctor ended up prescribing her Valium.
“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.”
Moss’ Desert Island Discs appearance did not mark the first time she has shared that she did not have a fun experience on set with Wahlberg. She told Vanity Fair she had a “nervous breakdown” ahead of the shoot in 2012.
In 2020, Wahlberg told The Guardian he “never really had a problem with Kate” and that the two have said hello at events they have both attended over the years.
“I think I was probably a little rough around the edges,” he told The Guardian when asked about Moss’ statements to Vanity Fair.
