Supermodels are human beings, too!
Kate Moss might be a supermodel, but like all of us, her feelings aren’t as “super” as her body is. In the newest issue of Vanity Fair, she opened up about the time she and Johnny Depp split. Like any other girl, of course, she was a mess for years. Yeah, you got that right: YEARS. The cover girl of Vanity’s December issue shared.
“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. 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!”
Meanwhile, she also admitted that she didn’t feel the same way for her other leading men, revealing that she had mixed emotions towards her 1992 Calvin Klein campaign that made her even more wanted as a model. She said:
“I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark and Herb Ritts. 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 weeks. I thought I was going to die.”
Kate turned down a doctor’s offer of Valium following the incident, after she was advised not to start pill-popping.
“It was just anxiety. 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. 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.”
