Kate Moss doesn't want to be thought of as “heroin chic” any more. The supermodel, who epitomized the waif-like look that was popularized in the mid-'90s, writes in her new autobiography that she never used drugs, despite a reputation to the contrary. She claims people only thought she was on heroin, because of her appearance. "If I was anorexic or if I was on heroin, maybe I would have been a bit more 'Oh dear!'" she says. “But I wasn't any of those things that they were painting me to be.” Moss says she didn't speak out about the rumors before now simply because she didn't care what people thought of her. "It didn't have anything to do with who I was at all, so I never really thought about it,” she says. “I just thought, the people who know me know the truth.” Moss hasn't avoided drugs entirely throughout her career: British tabloids ran photos of her snorting cocaine back in 2005.
