Kate Moss felt ''pressured'' into posing topless as a young model.

The 44-year-old beauty admitted she ''did not like it at all'' when photographers asked her to take her shirt off for pictures when she was a teenager.

Asked by NBC's Megyn Kelly if she ever felt pressured into posing topless, she said: ''Yes, there was pressure..

''I worked with a woman photographer called Corinne Day, and she always liked me with no top on, and I did not like it at all when I first started.''

One photographer who also took photos of Kate topless was Mario Sorrenti, her former boyfriend and the man behind her famous 1993 Calvin Klein Obsession campaign, but she was ''used to it'' with him and just got on with the work.

She added: ''Mario was my boyfriend, so I was kind of used to it, but I was still always like, 'Can I just put some clothes on?'

''But that was the job, so I kind of just did it.''

And Kate admitted the thought of it now is ''crazy'' and there is no way she'd allow her own daughter, 15-year-old Lila Grace - who she has with former partner Jefferson Hack - to pose topless.

Questioned about advice she'd give younger models, she said: ''They don't have to do it if they don't want to do it.

''I wouldn't let my daughter do it. I look at her now, and she's 15, and to think that I was going topless at her age is crazy.''

However, she would support the teenager if she expressed an ambition to follow in her famous footsteps.

She said: ''''It's up to her. I am leaving it up to her. I will support her obviously. I will be her momager! She can, if she wants to. I will support her in anything she wants to do.''
