Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend, gorgeous Russian model Irina Shayk has obviously rejected to pose for Playboy, as she is not interested in posing nude. As a lingerie model, Irina is never shy to bare plenty of flesh and show off her impeccable figure, however Playboy is something she would never do, as she thinks she has too much class to pose naked for such an infamous magazine. And now Irina bares a lot for Esquire UK February 2012, sporting raunchy black lingerie and revealing the reasons why she’d never do Playboy.

The 26-year-old super hottie beauty tells Esquire that she has class, despite the fact that she is a lingerie model. Irina said that: “I would never do Playboy. Yes, I am a lingerie model, but I have class. Playboy offered me so much money last year. I was like: ‘No. Way. Alright Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer did it. But they did it at the end of their career and it was classy. I think of myself as a cover girl. But I would never do some kind of cheesy magazine.”
Although it may seem much strange to you, Irina poses for the same magazine that interviewed her, topless and wearing just some sexy panties, covering her upper body with her hands.
In the interview with Esquire, Irina Shayk also reveals that it’s not only the pretty face that helps you create a fruitful career. She states: “No one wants to work with a stupid girl. You have to be beautiful on the inside, then people will want to continue to work with you.”

She also tells the magazine that growing up wasn’t that easy for her, as she was disliked by boys, when she was young. Her darker skin coloration, skinny figure and love for heels always triggered negative comments from boys. She tells Esquire that: “I love high heels from the age of 10! Short skirts and then high heels. My classmates used to make fun of me. Like, ‘Ooh, she’s so skinny and she’s wearing high heels’. But I just wore what I like and I didn’t care about people’s opinions, the same as I don’t care now. Boys never liked me at school. They made fun of me because I had dark skin.”
