Gasp! A brand new Kate Moss editorial and interview in an American magazine? What have I done to deserve this? (Nothing, obviously. It just happened. They didn’t do it for me.) The O.G. supermodel has been keeping it more low-key than ever as of late, rarely photographed aside from candid shots of her strolling about London with husband Jamie Hince or tumbling out of a club every so often, but with a Playboy cover rumored to be on deck, it seems like Kate may just be getting a little bit better-acquainted with the press these days. The photoshoot is delightful, but as is always the case with Ms. Moss, the quotes are even better. Kate talks body image, her daughter’s fascination with “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “white bums,” after the jump…

On “heroin chic”:

“It was horrible, especially the anorexic thing. The heroin, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s just ridiculous. I don’t do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that’s smudged’ … But the anorexic thing was a lot more upsetting, to be held responsible for somebody’s illness… I wasn’t anorexic.”

On when she first began modeling:

“I didn’t like my flat chest,” she says. “I was like, ‘Oh, I’m going to have a tit job.’ Can you imagine?” Posing nude was also a challenge, she says. “I used to be so scared about ‘Oh, I don’t want to show my body.’ Now that I’ve shown it, it doesn’t bug me about my moles, or ‘This isn’t big enough’ and ‘That’s not smooth enough.’”

On tanning:

“I don’t mind a bikini bottom. My husband likes lines on the bum — men like white bums, like a frame,” she says. “Like a bull’s-eye?” someone at the shoot asks. “Exactly,” Moss replies. “I don’t do it on the boobs, though—I try not to have a white boob.”

On her daughter Lila, 11:

“She’s watched ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ ten times, and she’s got a desk in her room with a phone… She puts a little outfit on and picks up the phone: ‘Hello, Miranda Priestly’s office.’ I say, ‘Lila, do you know who Miranda Priestly is in real life?’ But she just doesn’t care. She’s like, ‘Hello, Miranda Priestly’s office. Can you hold? Patrick Demarchelier on the line!’ I died when I heard her do it. So funny. She doesn’t have a clue who she is, but it’s word for word. She wants to be Anne Hathaway.”

On maintaining her celebrity:

Never far from the gaze of a camera, Moss says she has learned to deal with fame, sometimes the hard way. “Never complain, never explain” is the advice her ex Johnny Depp once gave her, and she has put it to use through more than one scandal. She has the remarkable ability to bounce back, and remains one of the few models who can still command a magazine cover, now most often the territory of A-list actresses. “Everyone’s a celebrity. But I’m kind of a celebrity now, so even though I’m not an actress, people know my name. I’m not just a face,” Moss says matter-of-factly.
