Kate Moss on her ‘years of crying’ over Johnny Depp


This month's edition of Vanity Fair has a revealing interview with Kate Moss, in which the supermodel discusses her heartbreak over Johnny Depp and the spiral that led to her being pictured snorting cocaine in 2005.

Moss had a four-year relationship  with Depp in the 1990s, and said it was the first time she felt taken care of.

"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,” she said. “I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!”

Moss also discusses the rise of "heroin chic", a look she pioneered. "I had never even taken heroin."

"I was thin because I was doing shows, working really hard"

And, no surprises here, the canteens weren't up to much in the world of 90s fashion. "Nobody took you out for lunch when I started".
