Calvin Klein interviewing Marc Jacobs for Harper’s Bazaar is just fabulous in itself. But the fact that they’re talking about why Jacobs likes to flash his sh*t and go nude makes it even better.
According to the interview, four years ago Jacobs was at 21 percent body fat and suffering from a severe case of ulcerative colitis. When told he would have to have his colon removed, he went under the strict supervision of a nutritionist, who promised him he would be in the best shape of his life and would not have to have his colon removed.
After seeing the pics of him and his now ex-boyfriend/fiance in teeny tiny bathing suits on holiday in St. Barths, France this past December (2009), it’s hard to believe he was ever a junk food addict.
“When I could look at myself in the mirror, and when I went from 21
percent body fat to 5 percent body fat and I had muscle, I was like, ‘This is great!’
When guys started looking at me and asking me out on dates, I felt way
better about myself. So it was hard to keep my clothes on, actually,” said Jacobs.
And since then he’s had to be overly sexual, even going so far as naming his new fragrance “Bang.”
I love sexual undertones. Yes, I die for Marc Jacobs.
