In case you've been living under a rock, Kim Kardashian posed nude on the cover of a magazine about a month ago. But while she may embrace her infamous curves now, as a teenager, the reality star admits she was "unhappy" with her body.
The bootylicious brunette says that at the age of 13, she'd cry every night about her changing figure, and often "prayed" her boobs would stop growing. Oh how we wish we could've been a fly on the wall during those conversations.

The 34-year-old credits her father, the late Robert Kardashian Sr., for boosting her self-confidence. "He told me I had a body not many girls have," she recalls, "[and] that later it would lead to attention from men, but that the most important thing was that I was a wonderful girl and I had to understand my self worth."
We wonder if he also knew it would be seen by millions in a sex tape recorded with her ex-boyfriend? Or that it would grace the cover of 'Paper' (and, ah hem, 'Playboy') magazine?

While Kim claims she's now a "confident woman," she "didn't just arrive confident," as she so eloquently explains. "It has built over the years and that is a big part of who I am now," she says.
As for that celebrity nude photo hack that happened a few months ago, the mother-of-one — who was one of the many celebrity victims — knows she can't really complain.

"I felt violated because these are private pictures," she tells Elle U.K. of the intimate snapshots. "But, I'm also realistic, I'm on covers of magazines practically naked, so I can't go crazy about it."
