As we were also telling you earlier today, Kate Moss rarely likes to talk in detail about herself, insisting she’s a model and, as such, she can keep silent if she feels like it. Her new book is the exception, as the latest issue of Vanity Fair can confirm.
Excerpts from the book have been included in VF, tackling various topics, from her early start in fashion and how it nearly drove her to have a nervous breakdown, to rumors of drug use and eating disorders and, last but not least, her highly mediated romance with Johnny Depp.
Kate and Johnny dated for several years back in the ‘90s and, years after they broke up, there still was talk about how she could never really move on
In her book, Moss admits that the breakup was hard, if only for the reason that she no longer had somebody to trust.
“There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, ‘What do I do?,’ he’d tell me,” Kate recalls of the romance.
“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!” the model says.
From other excerpts printed in the same issue of the mag, it’s crystal clear that Kate’s life wasn’t all roses as it seemed.
She struggled to be accepted and did things she would have never done otherwise but, most importantly, she was always alone and, as she puts it, hungry.
“I was thin, but that’s because I was doing shows, working really hard. At that time, I was staying at a B and B in Milan, and you’d get home from work and there was no food. You’d get to work in the morning, there was no food,” Kate says, denying rumors that she was an anorexic back then.
“Nobody took you out for lunch when I started. Carla Bruni took me out for lunch once. She was really nice. Otherwise, you don’t get fed. But I was never anorexic. They knew it wasn’t true – otherwise I wouldn’t be able to work,” Moss adds.
