Playing Caitlyn Jenner Cries In Behind-the-Scenes 'Vanity Fair' Video, Talks the ‘Difficulty of Hiding’

Caitlyn Jenner can't help but get emotional when talking about her now iconic Vanity Fair cover.

In a new behind-the-scenes video released by the magazine, the 65-year-old Olympian talks about finally coming out as a woman.

"It's not about the fanfare," Caitlyn says, fighting back tears. "It's not about people cheering in the stadium, it's not about going down the street and everyone giving me a, 'That a boy, Bruce' and a pat on the back, OK? This is about your life, and about who you are, and the last few days have been absolutely amazing ... I never thought that someday I'd be able to do this. So it's been great -- so many good people and love and support."

She also talks about the difficulty of living in hiding while making her transition to a woman.

"It was just hell," she says candidly. "These people [paparazzi] are just bloodsuckers, bottom feeders. It was really, really tough on me."

But it's safe to say those days are definitely behind her.

"To be honest with you, now I really don't care," Caitlyn stresses.

"Caitlyn has been so comfortable with herself," she adds. "That is a wonderful feeling to have -- to be able to wake up in the morning, be yourself, get dressed, get ready to go out and just be, like, a normal person. I've never been able to do that."
