katemoss_interviewsep08cover.jpgEarlier this week, we revealed Kate Moss's confession that she once scored a snog from Frank Sinatra, an admission she makes in the September issue of Interview magazine. Now, here are a few more interesting snippets from that piece, conducted by Glen O'Brien:

Kate doesn't have as many clothes as you might think...

"Well, I edit. I edit things down, and I've got a massive dressing room in the country, and so all the things I'm not going to wear but don't want to get rid of go there. And all the stuff I want to get rid of goes to Oxfam." *

(* If there was ever an excuse to visit Oxfam, this is it)

Her daughter is going to score a crap-load of her designer clothes...

"When she's 16. All those Pucci numbers and things that I wore when I was 17 that I won't really wear. But I'm saving them for her really. That's my blackmail. 'Don't eat your dinner, and you won't get my clothes. You won't grow, and you won't get into my clothes.' Now she's a fashion freak."

She doesn't know the difference between a model and a supermodel...

"I have no idea. I suppose if you can analyze it, you have to have a couple of Vogue covers. In England they're all supermodels in the press. Supermodel so-and-so, and they've done the new sleazy lingerie campaign or something."

When she first began modelling, she was very self-conscious...

"I would say I'm self-taught, but Corinne Day made me less conscious of myself. I was 15, and she'd make me take off my top, and I'd cry. After five years, you get used to it, and you're not self-conscious anymore. You're not conscious about your flaws. Bowlegs. Crooked teeth. That is what makes you different from everyone else. But when I was 15, I was like, 'Oh no, I don't want to be different. I want to have big tits! I want to look like Cindy Crawford!'"

On how the whole Topshop thing started with a kiss...

"My friend Bella Freud has this charity for children in Palestine, and I said I'd auction a kiss. So I was at work, and a friend of mine called up and said, " I'm bidding on your kiss." And people were texting me, " It's at 10 grand, 20 grand, 30 grand." When I finally got there it was 60 grand. It was Philip Green [ Topshop's owner] betting against Jemima Khan, and in the end he gave it to Jemima. I'm thinking, "What am I going to do for 60 grand? It's going to have to be more than a peck on the cheek." So I started talking to him, and I said, "Well, I should do something for Topshop," and he said, " All right, come and have a meeting with me," and so I did, and that was that. We really get on because we're both from Croydon. It's really weird. My mum had a fruit and veg stall in Croydon's Surrey Street Market, and his mum had two shops just around the corner from the market. I didn't know he was from Croydon, until we signed the deal and had dinner and he told me."

She has a few choice words on working with Mark Whalberg on those Calvin Klein ads...

"At the time he was such a dickhead. He wasn't very nice."

And finally, there is nothing like a bit of generalisation...

On the English: "They like to drink."
On the Americans: "They're a bit square".
On the French: "They're rude."
On the Russians: "They're sexy".
On the Italians: "Bisexual."
