Demi: Naked pic was private

Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair in 1991

Demi Moore has revealed that the famous Vanity Fair cover on which she posed naked and pregnant was meant to be a private picture. The world-renowned snap, which sparked huge controversy on its release, was taken by internationally acclaimed photographer Annie Liebovitz when Moore was seven months pregnant with daughter Scout LaRue in 1991. The Ghost star recently told V magazine: ‘Annie had photographed me pregnant with all three [daughters]. The shot that ended up being on the cover of Vanity Fair wasn't even done for the magazine. It was just for me and our family. ‘Then Annie called, we kind of joked, and I said it would be amazing if they would do this on the cover.’ The actress added that she is stunned the image has achieved iconic status, saying: ‘It did seem to give a little bit more permission to feel sexy, attractive when you're pregnant... but I really didn't expect for the response to be what it was. I was pretty shocked.’
