Moss opens up about breakdown

Kate Moss has opened up about a nervous breakdown she suffered following her iconic nude Calvin Klein advert in 1992.

The supermodel posed alongside Mark Wahlberg in the shoot, which was photographed by Herb Ritts.

She told the December issue of Vanity Fair: "I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark and Herb Ritts. It didn't feel like me at all. I felt really bad straddling this buff guy. I didn't like it. I couldn't get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die. I went to the doctor and he said: 'I'll give you some Valium', and Francesca Sorrenti, thank God, said: 'You're not taking that.'"

"It was just anxiety. Nobody takes care of you mentally. There's a massive pressure to do what you have to do. I was really little, and I was going to work with Steven Meisel. It was just really weird - a stretch limo coming to pick you up from work. I didn't like it. But it was work and I had to do it."

Moss also spoke about her relationship with Johnny Depp, which lasted between 1994 to 1997, saying that he helped her feel more at ease with herself.

She said: "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. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. It was a nightmare - years and years of crying. Oh, the tears.
