Kate Moss is the cover girl for Vanity Fair’s December issue. Kate Moss talked about nervous breakdown at 17 and how Johnny Depp helped her cope with fame.
The British supermodel confessed in the new Vanity Fair issue that her modeling career wasn’t all smiles and good times. Kate Moss explained she had a nervous breakdown when she was 17 because of her modeling career. She goes on to say she used to lock herself in the toilet and cry then come out and take her clothes off for topless shots.
In 1992, Kate Moss took a shoot for Calvin Klein that made her famous. Now, she regrets doing that photo shoot. “I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark and Herb Ritts” the British supermodel tells Vanity Fair. “It didn’t feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn’t like it. I couldn’t get out of bed for two week. I thought I was going to die” Kate Moss recalls.
“Nobody takes care of you mentally. There’s a massive pressure to do what you have to do. I was really little, and I was going to work with Steven Meisel” Kate Moss reveals of the early times of her modeling career. “It was just really weird – a stretch limo coming to pick you up from work. I didn’t like it. But it was work, and I had to do it” she adds.
Her topless photo shoot with Corinne Day for “The Face” was not comfortable for a 16-year-old revealed Kate Moss. “I see a 16-year-old now, and to ask her to take her clothes off would feel really weird. But they were like, If you don’t do it, then we’re not going to book you again” she tells Vanity Fair. “So I’d lock myself in the toilet and cry and then come out and do it. I never felt very comfortable about it”.
Kate Moss also reveals she didn’t like her boobs when she was a teenager. “There’s a lot of boobs. I hated my boobs! Because I was flat-chested. And I had a big mole on one” she reveals.
