Kate Moss: Mark Wahlberg Gave Me a Nervous Breakdown
In the December issue of Vanity Fair, supermodel Kate Moss talks. Yes, talks. For the contradictorily shy public figure, Kate Moss just talking in general is grounds enough to make the interview noteworthy, and we’ve plucked some of the great gems found within the attic of Kate’s thoughts.

Kate, who also appears on the cover in a blonde bob and light make-up and baby pink nails shot, opens up about vices we’ve associated with her like Mark Wahlberg, Johnny Depp, anorexia, and heroin use. In the Kate Moss biopic that will be greenlit decades from now, probably directed by Sofia Coppola with one of Brad and Angelina’s kids in the title role, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of this make their way into the script.

“I don’t want to be myself, ever. I’m terrible at a snapshot. Terrible. I blink all the time. I’ve got facial Tourette’s. Unless I’m working and in that zone, I’m not very good at pictures, really.”

“On my wedding day, I’m like freaking out, obviously. ‘You’ve got to give me a character.’ And [Galliano] said, ‘You have a secret—you are the last of the English roses. Hide under that veil. When he lifts it, he’s going to see your wanton past!’”

“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.”

“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.’ So I’d lock myself in the toilet and cry and then come out and do it. I never felt very comfortable about it.”

“I had never even taken heroin—it was nothing to do with me at all. I think Corinne—she wasn’t on heroin but always loved that Lou Reed song, that whole glamorizing the squat, white-and-black and sparse and thin, and girls with dark eyes. She loved that look.”

“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. 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.”

“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!”
