The 47-year-old runway beauty talks about her early modelling career, claiming she was ‘terribly uncomfortable’ for feeling pressured to strip off for the camera.
AceShowbiz –Kate Moss was made to feel “terribly uncomfortable” by photographers early in her career.
The 47-year-old beauty was just 14 when she was started modelling and despite her young age, she felt pressured to strip off which, she admitted, is still a common expectation in the industry today.
“There were many shoots in the early days where I felt terribly uncomfortable,” she told Reader’s Digest magazine. “I think everyone understands the lifespan of a model, and the fact you will be starting young.”
“That was the case with me, but even so there were some photographers who wouldn’t agree to shoot you unless there was a nude element. That was very common then and still is now. For a very young woman that could be incredibly intimidating.”
Kate – who has 18-year-old daughter Lila with former partner Jefferson Hack – also hit out at the “awful” ‘heroin chic’ label she was tagged with thanks to her slender frame and pale skin.

“In the early days I became linked with the phrase ‘heroin chic,’ which I always thought was awful,” she sighed. “There is no positive interpretation of that and I certainly never felt one.”
“At the end of the day I was always thin and small and no amount of eating would put weight on me.”
But Kate admitted she has to keep a closer eye on her diet these days than she used to.
“I see models now who are similar to me and sometimes the criticism they get is unfair because – up to a certain age at least – there are some of us who can just eat what we want without too many real consequences,” she explained.
“That definitely changes in later life though, as I found out after the birth of my daughter Lila.”
