Kim Kardashian has admitted she used to be "super desperate" to be famous and would do almost anything to get her picture taken.

She got her first taste of stardom working as Paris Hilton 's personal assistant, and mum-of-four Kim says she used to go out of her way to be snapped by paparazzi.

Talking to host Andy Cohen on the KUWTK reunion show, the 40-year-old explained she used to go to great lengths to make sure she got her picture taken and would purposely frequent celeb hot spots.

Kim even went as far as to admit she would do "anything" to draw attention to herself.

Discussing the era in which she would seek out paparazzi, the star said: "I knew exactly where they were, if you wanted to be seen."

While Kim is adamant she has never called photographers herself, she did admit to some desperate behaviour to hit the headlines while filming KUWTK in the early days.

"Anytime I got hair and makeup for the show, there was no way I was going home and washing it off"' she confessed.

"I would stop off at Robertson. I would stop off at The Ivy and would pick up some something to go – even if it was just some bread to go. Anything! An empty bag!

"I would run in and pretend like I left something, like 'Hi, did I leave my glasses here?'" she laughed while reminiscing about her past-self.

She added: "I think I can talk about it because it's so funny. I think people need to be more honest about those moments in life when you're just super desperate and want that."

Kim once didn't reach the crazy levels of fame she enjoys now until the late 00s.

Prior to that, she was best known for appearing on a few episodes of The Simple Life alongside friend Paris and Nicole Richie – organising the wardrobe of hotel heiress.

When her infamous sex tape was leaked ahead of the first season of KUWTK in 2007, Kim admits it was probably responsible for her meteoric rise to global stardom.

When grilled on the reunion about if she believes the show would have succeeded without the publicity of her adult video, the estranged wife of Kanye West replied: "Looking back, probably not."

She went on to add: "I try not to have any regrets, but it's probably the one thing I wish didn't exist. If I could erase any of the stupid things that I've done in life, that's probably it."

"That is something that I have to live with for the rest of my life. That is something that is being held over my head."
