Caitlyn Jenner may have been very forthcoming about the secret she harbored for several years during her Diane Sawyer interview in April 2015, however, a recent video interview revealed her early attempt to transition from a man to a woman and how meeting Kris Jenner has affected her.
Caitlyn, previously known as Bruce, made her recent transition into a woman but a video clip obtained by Today indicated that she first started the process during the 1980s. The clip was shown during the Makers Conference held in California’s Rancho Palos Verdes Tuesday, Feb. 2. In the video, Caitlyn shared that she started taking hormones during her 30s and has even seen the changes in the body before she decided to stop the process.
“I was a good 36B. I loved them. I thought this was fabulous. My mission at that point was to transition before I was 40. Got to 39 ... I just couldn't go any further,” she said in the clip.
She also opened up about meeting former wife Kris Jenner a few months after she stopped her transition process. Caitlyn recounted how they “hit if off from day one” and that she was “very honest” with Kris about her inner struggles, apart from the fact that she had a 36B-sized chest.
Caitlyn even shared that she felt that everything was “heading in the right direction” at that time and that she decided to move on with her life together with the “Keeping It Up with the Kardashians” star. To build a family together, Caitlyn recalled how she dropped all “these gender things” and hormones and even had her breasts removed. “I never told anybody that,” she added in the clip.
The Olympian also mentioned some of Kris’s rules whenever she felt the need to tap into her inner self. “The rules with Kris and I were, 'Don't dress up, certainly around the house. If you really need to do that, when you're on the road, take stuff and do that,'" Caitlyn revealed. “So I did that for years.”
Caitlyn was just one of the stars who participated in the recently held Makers conference which celebrated women’s stories. Other celebrities include America Ferrera, Sheryl Sandberg and Halle Berry, according to Today.
Meanwhile, Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair cover, which marked her introduction to the world after her 2015 transition, was voted best cover of the year by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME), Fashionista reported. The announcement was made on Tuesday, Feb. 2, during the American Magazine Media Conference held in New York.
The “I Am Cait” star’s “Call Me Caitlyn” Vanity Fair issue was also voted as ASME’s best cover in the celebrity and entertainment category. Caitlyn’s iconic Vanity Fair shoot was photographed by Annie Leibovitz and was released on July 2015.
