Model Irina Shayk bares it all for VMan's 10th anniversary issue, and we're not just talking about her feelings! 

The 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl, ditched her top and slipped into a thong for the publication's racy photo shoot, which sees the Russian beauty posing in an idyllic natural setting.

Other revealing shots show the supermodel showing off her curves in a drenched mesh top and a lacy lingerie number.

But the 27-year-old reveals more than just her fabulous figure.

In an interview with Derek Blasberg, the model opens up about having been bullied as a child while growing up in a small village in Russia.

"Sure, kids made fun of me because I was so skinny and I always had these free haircuts from my sister," she said when asked if she was ever teased growing up.  "I remember when I was 14, I wanted high heel boots and they cost $25, but we couldn't afford them. So I worked in a hospital for 20 days painting the walls to make the $25. I remember the other kids making fun of me for that: ‘Who is this weird, skinny girl in those high heel boots?' But I didn't care."

And it seems the teasing followed her Paris, where she launched her modeling career.

"I lived in the models' apartment, and the other girls would laugh at me because I was different than them," she confessed. "They were very pale, very skinny editorial girls, and I had curves and a tan."

Looks like the voluptuous Shayk had the last laugh, having landed the coveted Sports Illustrated cover, a Beach Bunny campaign and the oh-so-hot Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo as a boyfriend.

Shayk was less open about discussing her relationship with Ronaldo, guarding the details of her private life.

“The day I made the decision I was going to be a successful model, I knew I would deal with people wanting to know about my personal life,” she said. “So it didn’t come as a shock. And if you love someone and you are in a great relationship, you don’t feel the pressure. People can try and disturb that, but if you’re happy you build a wall around you. What’s important to me stays behind that wall.”
