The 30-year-old beauty admits she doesn`t understand why people view her as a sex symbol and says she sometimes struggles to like what she sees in the mirror.
She said: "Being a sex symbol is definitely powerful. I don`t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I`m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I`m always so indecisive.
"It`s a process. You have to learn to accept it. You have to learn to like what you see in the mirror. There are definitely times when I don`t feel like myself, but you have to fake it until you make it."
While Kim admits she can be insecure about her body, the reality TV star still treasures the pictures she posed for in Playboy magazine in 2007.
She explained to the February edition of America`s Glamour magazine: "It was an independence thing for me. I was always `by the book,` such the straight arrow when it came to pleasing my parents and being a good daughter. I felt like this was one decision that only I could make. And I think it looks great. I`ll have those pictures forever."
The star also told of how she loves being a woman and said if she ever woke up a man she would still continue to wear her feminine outfits.
She laughed: "I love being a girl. I`m such a glamour girl. I would be a tranny. I would find a wig!"
