Kate Moss suffered nervous breakdown over Calvin Klein underwear shoot

"I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn't like it."




Kate Moss has opened up about her tough rise to the top, admitting she suffered from such extreme anxiety at the start of her career, she was convinced she was "going to die".

The blonde beauty became one of the world's most famous faces after she and Mark Wahlberg posed in their underwear together for the now-legendary Calvin Klein campaign.

The steamy ads made her an international icon, but in a new magazine interview, Kate admits the job made her a nervous wreck.

She told Vanity Fair: "I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18 - when I had to go and work with Marky Mark. It didn't feel like me at all. I felt really bad about 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.'

"It was just anxiety. Nobody takes care of you mentally. There's a massive pressure to do what you have to do (and) I was really little... I didn't like it. But it was work, and I had to do it."
