Interview

Jenner, Carter and others who worked on the Vanity Fair cover and article talk about their work in a behind-the-scenes short film. Carter:

He was at a stage in his life where he was going to make this seismic change. I thought this cover, if we got it right, with a great image from Annie Leibovitz, you’ve got this incredible cresting political issue of transgender…We brought in the security that we use for the Oscar party, for the Whitehouse Correspondents’ Dinner,” Carter explained. “We had security at the photoshoot, security at the printer.

Jenner:

I’ve basically been inside this house for three months. I haven’t really left. It’s difficult because I can’t go out and be seen by the paparazzi. It was just hell. It was really, really tough on me…It’s been great, so many good people, and love and support. 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.

Vanity Fair video

Interview

The magazine releases a video of Jenner’s photo shoot:

I was probably at the games because I was running away from a lot of things. I’m very very proud of the accomplishment. I don’t want to diminish that. The last few days in doing this shoot is about my life, and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare. It’s not about people cheering in the stadium. It’s not about going down he street and everybody giving me an ‘Attaboy Bruce’ pat on the back. This is about your life. Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day he always had a secret, from morning ’til night. Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.
