Kate Moss on Heroin Chic & Hating Her Boobs as a Teenager

During her career, Kate Moss was often called out for promoting "heroin chic" and anorexia, but now the legendary British model has commented on having those two tags during her earlier years, and she says that they were unfair titles because she didn't suffer from anorexia and never took heroin, so in a way she just glossed over all of it because she knew it wasn't true: 
“If I was anorexic or if I was on heroin, maybe I would have been a bit more ‘oh dear!’ But I wasn’t any of those things that they were painting me to be. It didn’t have anything to do with who I was at all, so I never really thought about it. I just thought, the people who know me know the truth. I was lucky to be with Johnny at that stage. He taught me a lot about fame. He told me ‘never complain, never explain.’ That’s why I don’t use Twitter and things like that. I don’t want people to know what is true all the time and that’s what keeps the mystery.” 

On being conscious of her body, Kate admits that during her teen years she hated her boobs and didn't want anyone to see them:

“I hated my boobs more than anything as a teenager. I’d do anything not to take my top off. I see nudity as empowering now. Before, I didn’t. I cried for years!”

Speaking on aging, Kate says she may never look as young as she once did, but she is far from over:

“Well, I am never going to be 18 again, when I could do shoots with no make-up, but it’s not as though I don’t want to have wrinkles, because I think it’s important to have your own face that you live in. There are always new ways of looking through new eyes. I still don’t feel I’m done — I’m not finished yet.”

On her life philosophy:

“I remember my mum telling me you can’t have fun all the time and I still hold my answer true today when I told her ‘But, why not”‘”
