Caitlyn Jenner is seen breaking down in a new documentary when discussing the love and support she received from her friends and family during the infamous Vanity Fair cover shoot that publicly revealed her transgender transformation earlier this summer.

The 10-and-a-half-minute documentary posted by Vanity Fair on its website on Sunday features interviews with Jenner, 65, as well as an interview with the magazine’s editor, Graydon Carter, in which he explains his thoughts behind the “Call Me Caitlyn” cover shoot and the extreme efforts that went into keeping Jenner’s transition under wraps until the issue’s publication.

“I've basically been inside this house for three months. I haven't really left,” Jenner said, according to Us Magazine, adding that she wore baggy sweaters whenever she went outside her home. “It’s difficult because I can't go out and be seen by the paparazzi. It was just hell. It was really, really tough on me.”

Jenner teared up when she first caught sight of her reflection in a mirror as the new “Caitlyn.”

“From a distance, I looked in the mirror and thought, 'Oh my God.' It’s the first time I really saw an image of me, who I am,” Jenner said, according to Vanity Fair. “You look at some of the people, the [transgender] pioneers who tried to get the message out. They made it easier for me. I hope, with my honesty, I can make it easier for someone else down the line.”

But Jenner’s transition from male Olympic athlete and father to a transgender woman has met both resounding praise and intense criticism — even from Jenner’s own family members.

“Khloé [Kardashian] is upset. She didn't like the Vanity Fair article,” Jenner admitted of her stepdaughter, according to E! Online. “Because of my status, everyone is looking at me as the spokesperson for the transgender community. I'm thinking about my family and I'm thinking about all this kind of stuff and I'm struggling with it.”
