“I always felt like I was born in the wrong body. I felt I was supposed to be a boy… I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because my father always wanted a boy. When he passed away, I thought, ‘Since I’m a guy, now it’s my time to take care of the family. I said to myself I would never get married. Of course, later on in life I outgrew that, and I love being a woman. But I remember that feeling.” – Irina Shayk for Vogue UK.
