Kate Moss has been hailed as the bad girl of fashion even before she coupled up with the reckless Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty. Now a mother and wife, the supermodel attempts to set the record straight
to Vanity Fair
Moss, 38, got her big break as a teenager when she posed for Calvin Klein in what is now considered an iconic ad. Looking super slim in the photos led to eating disorder rumors about the young model. "You'd get to work in the morning, there was no food. Nobody took you out for lunch when I started... but I was never anorexic. They knew it wasn't true -- otherwise I wouldn't able to work," Moss told Vanity Fair's James Fox.
She added, "I was thin, but that's because I was doing shows, working really hard."
As for the constant rumors of drug use, the supermodel claims, "I had never even taken heroin -- it was nothing to do with me at all."
Moss also recalls a story to VF of a breakdown she had while on set of a Calvin Klein shoot and says it was her then boyfriend, Johnny Depp, that was really there for her. "There's nobody that's ever really been able to take care of me," she told the magazine. "Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said... like if I said, 'What did I do?,' he'd tell me. And that's what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!" Depp and Moss dated from 1994-1998.
Now, Moss has traded in her party days for a family, her husband of more than one year, The Kills frontman Jamie Hince, and her 10-year-old daughter Lila Grace. The supermodel said of her new life, "I don’t really go to clubs anymore. I’m actually quite settled."
