The acclaimed star has opened up about her first topless shoot when she was just 17, and while she found it ‘validating’ at the time, she knows she would feel very different now seeing someone go through the same experience.
‘I think that I had no sense of what was happening other than that it was validating, and felt really validating for older men who ran a magazine to say, “You’re hot,”‘ she said during the Changes with Annie Macmanus podcast.
‘It felt really good to have that. At the time, that’s all I focused on. Now looking back, I’m like, “Wow!”‘ she added.

‘I was a child, I actually can visualise that specific picture in my mind and I’m thinking about if I saw a 17-year-old in that way now, I’d be horrified because I can recognise how young I was.
‘At the time, it just felt really powerful and cool.
‘I think there were things going on under the surface of that that I didn’t even realize, was that I was learning to place a lot of value in how desirable I could be to men,’ she admitted.
