Kate Moss has admitted she has ‘not very good memories’ of her famous Calvin Klein photoshoot with Mark Wahlberg in 1992.

The pair posed for a memorable campaign together when she was at the beginning of her modeling career and he was a famous rapper known as Marky Mark.

Speaking on Desert Island Discs with Lauren Laverne, Kate said Mark made the photoshoot ‘all about him’ and she also felt ‘objective’ by the crew.

Asked if she had good memories of the shoot, Kate said: ‘Not very good memories. He was very macho and it was all about him. He had a big entourage. I was this model.

Lauren asked: ‘You felt objectified?’ to which Kate said: ‘Yeah completely and vulnerable and scared. I think they played on my vulnerability.’

She added: ‘I was quite young and innocent, Calvin loved that. I really didn’t feel well at all before the shoot, I couldn’t get out of bed and had severe anxiety.’

It’s not the first time Kate has spoken about her bad experience on the shoot, previously describing Mark as ‘such ad***head’ and ‘wasn’t very nice’ in an interview with Vanity Fair.

She said: ‘I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark and Herb Ritts. It didn’t feel like me at all.

‘I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn’t like it. I couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks.’

Mark doesn’t have very fond memories of the photoshoot either and has since admitted his behavior on the set was ‘not very worldly’.

He told The Guardian: ‘I think I was probably a little rough around the edges. Kind of doing my thing. I wasn’t very… worldly, let’s say that.

‘But I’ve seen her and said hello. I think we saw each other at a concert here and there, we said hi and exchanged pleasantries.’

In another past interview with The Mail on Sunday, Mark also described the photoshoot as his ‘most embarassing moment’.

He said: ‘The underwear modeling I did for Calvin Klein with Kate Moss was not good in retrospect, but at the time it got me a lot of attention from the ladies!

‘Explaining that – along with the rap career – to my kids is going to be embarrassing when they are old enough to ask.’
