NEW YORK - Reuters
British supermodel Kate Moss talks to Vanity Fair.If you hate having your picture taken, you’re in good company, British supermodel Kate Moss does as well.
“I’m terrible at a snapshot. Terrible. I blink all the time. I’ve got facial Tourette’s,” she told Vanity Fair in the December issue.
Moss, who has graced countless magazine covers and was emblematic of the waif look popular in the 1990s, added “Unless I’m working and in that zone, I’m not very good at pictures.”
Moss, 38, opened up about her years spent before the camera, including now legendary shoots that left her anxious, demoralized, and hungry.
Among her regrets is a 1992 Calvin Klein session that helped launched Moss’ career.
When she was even younger, she posed nude for The Face, another regret.
Moss, who became associated with the “heroin chic” look after her early shoots, said “I had never even taken heroin it was nothing to do with me at all.”
Now, she says, her years of partying and high living have ebbed. She married guitarist Jamie Hince in 2011 after a four-year romance.
