Jaime King Covers 'New York Times Magazine'

Jaime King poses in two different photographs on the cover of The New York Times Magazine‘s latest issue.

The publication featured nine individuals who had been photographed before and were recently revisited by the magazine.

Jaime, 32, was profiled back in 1995 for a piece about her life as a young model in the fashion world.

“At 16 years old, you think you know everything, and then all of a sudden you realize that you don’t know anything at all. That is the best way to explain what I was feeling at that time,” the Hart of Dixie actress, who back then went by the name James King, shared.

“I felt like some people wanted a piece of me, wanted to take something from me. I felt that they wanted to sexualize me. In hindsight, I can see that and know the truth of it, but at that time I didn’t know that’s what they were doing. I experimented with drugs; I was young and wanted to ‘fit’ ‘in.’ I quickly realized this wasn’t the path for me, and I haven’t touched any drug since I was 17,” she added.

She hasnt touched drugs since she was 17? It also looks like she hasnt touched a single drop of food since then either.

Don’t believe it. She was partying it up with Renfro and Swain while they were shooting.

Ms King’s two tall heels in those amazing 95 pix stand for my little secret 19ish hottie who works at the 1-95 number STAR BUCKS and loves Jesus. PFF: The royal coachman fly-fishing season up around the Green River creeks above Enumclaw is now just starting to get good. And should stay that way all through September and into the first half of October. Leave two pennies under my spot when you feel like going up there for the afternoon. [The catch limit is two, so if you get a FFing license for trout we can keep 4.]

[edit]Personal life

During her first job modeling, King began using heroin and had an addiction to the drug from age fourteen to nineteen. In 1997, her boyfriend, 21 year old fashion photographer Davide Sorrenti, had died from what was thought be a kidney ailment brought on by excessive heroin use.[3] Following his death, King became sober,[8] and went to rehabilitation at age nineteen for her addictions to both heroin and alcohol.[33] In 2006, she commented that her past reputation as a “party girl” is “like another lifetime,” and she now thinks of herself as a different person.[4]
Seventeen my ass! Anyone that knows her knows she didn’t become clean at 17. She was in rehab 2 times, Hazelden the first time and the second time was after she was 17! It’s not that people don’t believe she
is sober, but she is still lying about her past, which really makes you
think…
