Irina Shayk vows never to pose for Playboy
Los Angeles: Lingerie model Irina Shayk may have made a name for herself by shedding her clothes but the Russian model says she will never go naked for Playboy.
Shayk, who is dating football heartthrob Cristiano Ronaldo, said Hugh Hefner`s infamous magazine offered her `so much money` but she turned it down.
Posing topless for men`s magazine Esquire, the model said, "I would never do Playboy. Yes, I am a lingerie model, but I have class. Playboy offered me so much money last year. I was like: `No way`.
"Alright Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer did it. Bu they did it at the end of their career and it was classy. I think of myself as a cover girl. But I would never do some kind of cheesy magazine."
The model may be known for her beauty now but claims that she was an ugly duckling in her younger days.
"Boys never liked me at school. They made fun of me `cos I had dark skin (sic)."
