(MEDIA GENERAL) — For the first time, we’re getting a look at the new Bruce Jenner. During his much-viewed Diane Sawyer interview in late April, Jenner did not show off his new look or discuss how he’d like to be referred to since revealing he was transitioning into a female.
Now, in a Vanity Fair cover article, Jenner says, “Call me Caitlyn.”
The cover photo was taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Leibovitz shot the first pictures of Caitlyn at her Malibu house.
“I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live,” Jenner is quoted as saying to Vanity Fair.
In a Tweet Monday, Jenner said she was excited.
Jenner gave Vanity Fair access to her life as she grappled with changing from a man to a woman.
“If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life,’ ” the magazine quotes Jenner as saying during an emotional interview.
The issue hits newsstands on June 9.
