Color us skeptical, but could Kate Moss be putting her famously well-guarded personal life to paper? The Sun–hence our skepticism–is reporting that the supermodel is writing a memoir at the urging of new hubby Jamie Hince, who is a “big reader” and apparently likes to write himself.
Can you imagine how amazing this would be if it’s actually happening? Her famous love affairs, her long tenure in the fashion industry, the addictions, her childhood. Kate’s really had an interesting life by any measure. “She’s never opened up about her parents’ divorce, having daughter Lila or her relationships with former boyfriends including Johnny Depp and Pete Doherty,” the Sun‘s source said.
But here’s the problem. Kate doesn’t talk to anyone. She famously hates interviews–very few people have actually heard her voice. She doesn’t answer personal questions. She doesn’t address rumors. Why the hell would she actually publish her deepest, darkest secrets? She has enough money, which is often a motivating factor for a book.
There have been a number of biographies written about her, as well as photography books, including one published last year featuring her work with Mario Testino (the hardcover version is going for more than $1,000 on Amazon.) And Kate has actually published a book herself. In 1997 she released Kate: The Kate Moss Book, which was essentially a series of photos chosen by the model to illustrate her rise in the modeling world. But we just don’t see this new book happening.
But we’ll be the first in line to get one if she does actually go through with it.
