Caitlyn Jenner’s Full ‘Vanity Fair’ Interview Released: 9 Important Quotes

Caitlyn Jenner’s complete Vanity Fair interview was just released online and we have the nine most important quotes from the article.


While parts of Jenner’s interview were released in early June, the entire article was just posted online on Thursday, (June 25, 2015).

Take a look at the nine most important quotes from the article:

1. Caitlyn’s son Burt Jenner: “I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that.”

2. Caitlyn on her transition: “You wonder if you are making all the right decisions. I wish I were kind of normal. It would be so much more simple. The uncomfortableness of being me never leaves all day long. I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live. I’m not doing this so I can hit it off the women’s tee.”

3. Caitlyn talks about revealing her secret: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.‘You never dealt with yourself,’ and I don’t want that to happen.”

4. Cassandra Jenner on Caitlyn’s journey: “Love has nothing to do with gender. There’s no way to separate what he’s going through, the trap he’s been in for the past 60 years and how that has affected his choices around love and relationships. It’s impossible.”

5. Linda Thompson on what she said to Brandon Jenner years ago when his dad didn’t show up to his high school graduation: “If he had emotional legs he’d get up and walk to you. But he doesn’t. He just doesn’t have that capability.”

6. Caitlyn on giving speeches in the past. “Underneath my suit I have a bra and panty hose and this and that and thinking to myself, They know nothing about me. I walk off the stage and I’d feel like a liar. And I would say, ‘Fuck, I can’t tell my story. There’s so much more to me than those 48 hours in the stadium, and I can’t talk about it.’ It was frustrating. You get mad at yourself…. Little did they know I was totally empty inside. Totally empty inside.”

7. Caitlyn on parenting: “I have made a lot of mistakes raising the four Jenner kids. I had times not only dealing with my own issues but exes. [It was] very traumatic and there was a lot of turmoil in my life, and I wasn’t as close to my kids as I should have been.”

8. Kris Jenner on the end of her marriage: “At the end of my relationship with Bruce he definitely had a lot of social anxiety. That was one of the reasons we were in a struggle at the end. We fought a lot because we would go out together and before we got to the end of the block we were in a fight because he started saying, ‘When can we go home?’”

9. Brandon Jenner on his relationship with Caitlyn: “This is the fourth quarter of [her] life. But within our relationship this is the first quarter, the relationship that [she] has with the kids. Regardless of the show and all that stuff, there will be a fourth quarter of the relationship. And I envision the fourth quarter as having a 15- or 16-year-old daughter who knows her grandparent as ‘Mapa’ or whatever Dad wants to be, and loves that grandparent for who she is.”
