On her intense 3-year romance with Johnny Depp Moss told Vanity Fair: “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 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!”

Moss opened up admitting that in hindsight she may have been too young to begin modelling – especially when remembering how uncomfortable she felt when posing nude. “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. There’s a lot of boobs. I hated my boobs! Because I was flat-chested. And I had a big mole on one. That picture of me running down the beach – I’ll never forget doing that, because I made the hairdresser, who was the only man on the shoot turn his back.”

With her early days of being branded the poster girl for “heroin chic” behind her Moss feels settled and stable: “I don’t really go to clubs anymore. I’m actually quite settled. Living in Highgate with my dog and my husband and my daughter! I’m not a hell-raiser. But don’t burst the bubble. Behind closed doors, for sure I’m a hell-raiser.”
