Here is what the 39-year-old model had to share with the mag:
On trying to have privacy: “I don’t want to hang my dirty laundry out for Hello! and for people to know all the ins and outs of my life… I don’t get why it would be interesting. I’m not that different. And also, now with Instagram and everything, everyone’s so on their phones that even when I’m in a restaurant like this, where you wouldn’t expect it, someone will come up and ask to get a picture with me. I’m like, ‘No!’”
On what would be in her signature cocktail: “Well, I have a friend at the Hemingway Bar at the Hotel Ritz in Paris, an English guy called Colin. I’ve been staying at the hotel since I was 17, and I’ve spent a lot of time in the Hemingway Bar. So my drink is the French 76, which is vodka, lemon juice, and sugar topped up with champagne. Love! Two of those and you’re like, ‘Oh, life is amazing!’ It’s heaven.”
On if she ever envisioned another life for herself: “No. I was, like, a child when I started. I was 14. If it hadn’t happened, I don’t know what would have happened to me. I would be in Croyden [the neighborhood south of London where she grew up], working in a bar, probably. I wanted to be at the center of things. I love working with creative people, and there was none of that where I came from. As soon as I was given a chance I took it.”
