Timothy White/E!(NEW YORK) — Kim Kardashian’s nude photo shoot for Paper magazine took hard work and a ton of flexibility.
The reality TV star said that the photographer, Jean-Paul Goude, contorted her body into positions she didn’t realize she could be in.
“My back hurt for about a week after that shoot!” Kardashian said during an appearance on the Australian talk show, The Project. “He has an art of posing you and it was definitely not comfortable and things were falling all over the place. …We made a big mess on set!”
Kardashian, 34, shocked her fans by posing fully nude for the magazine, but she’s thrilled with the photos. Working with Goude was a dream come true, she said.
“I looked at it as, this was an art project for me. This was something that was going to make me feel confident and me feel good,” she said. “I felt really positive and really good about myself.”
However, she said that taking provocative photos aren’t for everybody.
“It taught me to do what you want to do,” she said. “Everyone should do what they’re comfortable with.”
