Male model Andrej Pejic has one of four covers of the Out100 issue (the others are Larry Kramer, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Kathy Griffin) and, first off, how serenely gorgeous does he look?
Bits and pieces from the interview have been trickling out for a while (his homage to Richard Avedon‘s iconic snake portrait of Nastassja Kinski, claiming that male models pinch him backstage) but the latest is kind of shocking. …Or it would be in practically any industry but fashion.
Says the model:
“I have been asked to get aroused for a shot. I declined. I like to serve beauty, not porn.”
We’re glad you stuck to your guns, Andrej. Where we come from, that’s sexual harassment.
