We dare you to watch this video without crying. ‘Vanity Fair’ just released never-before-scene footage they filmed during Caitlyn Jenner’s cover shoot. In the video, Caitlyn broke down in tears talking about the first time she saw an image of who she really is in the mirror.
Revealing her true self on the cover of Vanity Fair will always be a moment Caitlyn Jenner, 65, holds close to her heart. On July 26, the magazine released a video documentary called “Call Me Caitlyn,” which features 10 minutes of footage and interviews from the emotional cover shoot. Speaking about the whole experience really got Caitlyn, and us, choked up — grab some tissues and watch for yourselves!
“It’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving me a “that-a-boy, Bruce” and pat on the back, this is about your life, about who you are and the last few days have been absolutely amazing I never thought that someday I would be able to do this,” Caitlyn said through tears in the video.
Still crying, she said, “It’s been great, so many good people, and love and support,” about the days on set. She then talked about the moment she first saw a reflection of herself — her true self. “I had this one time where I looked from a distance and I just thought, ‘Oh my god!’ It was the first time I’d ever really seen an image of me, who I am. Over-the-top better than I ever thought I’d ever be, especially at my age. Seeing that image was powerful to me,” she explained. “I said you know what? This is going to work, so ya, we move forward. I am so excited about the future.”
