Lottie Moss 'never re­ally wanted' to be a model

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 18-year-old star - who is the sis­ter of su­per­model Kate Moss - has con­fessed she didn't see her­self fol­low­ing in her older sib­ling's foot­steps un­til she was scouted at Kate's wed­ding to Jamie Hince back in 2011. She said: "It's quite funny ac­tu­ally. I never re­ally wanted to be a model when I was younger. It was some­thing I didn't think I could do - un­til I was scouted at my sis­ter's wed­ding. I re­mem­ber think­ing, 'Yeah, that ac­tu­ally sounds fun.' "I was still at school when the agency saw me, and I mostly just did test shoots for a while. When I turned 16 they smoothed me into it and signed me up prop­erly, and the work in­creased grad­u­ally from there. We were care­ful not to let it in­ter­fere with school, but I could do school­work while I was away." And Lottie - who is the daugh­ter of Linda Shep­herd and Peter Ed­ward Moss - in­sists her par­ents were never strict when she was grow­ing up. She added to The Telegraph news­pa­per: "My par­ents weren't strict at all. Mum's method has al­ways been, 'Do what you want, but don't come cry­ing to me when it goes wrong.' "So if I wanted a pierc­ing or what­ever, she told me she'd not be there when I was cry­ing about it, and that worked." Mean­while, the blonde model pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted she finds it "weird" get­ting her hair and make up done all at once. She said: "It's re­ally nice to be pam­pered but it's quite weird when ev­ery­thing - hair, make-up, man­i­cure and pedi­cure - is be­ing done at once. It's your 10 min­utes to re­lax be­fore the mad­ness be­gins. Be­ing on the red car­pet is such an un­usual and sur­real ex­pe­ri­ence. I try to stay as calm as I can, but I do get awk­ward. I don't know how some celebri­ties stay so com­posed."
