In an interview with BBC Radio 4’s “Desert Island Discs,” Kate Moss said she couldn’t help but feel a little scared when she first met Mark Wahlberg for a Calvin Klein shoot back in 1992. The British-born model was about 18 years old at the time and admitted that she felt intimated, if not also vulnerable around Wahlberg and his entourage. To make things even more awkward, she had to sit on his lap while topless. When asked about it, Moss said (via Us Weekly), “Not very good memories. He was very macho, and it was all about him. He had a big entourage. I was just this model.” When Moss was asked whether she felt objectified during the shoot, she answered, “Yeah, completely. And vulnerable and scared … I think they played on my vulnerability. I was quite young and innocent, Calvin loved that.”
If that weren’t enough, Moss told Vanity Fair in 2012 that the entire photoshoot caused her to have a breakdown and that Wahlberg was “such a d***head.” While speaking to The Guardian about the matter, Wahlberg certainly didn’t deny it. He said, “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.” Well, at least both Wahlberg and Moss were on the same page about that.
