Supermodel Kate Moss may have been the poster child for the early 90s era, known around the world for her "heroin chic" look, but she says she never even touched the drug.

The 38-year-old put the drug rumors to rest, also maintaining that she never had an eating disorder, reported Variety.

Moss, who appeared in several famous magazine spreads looking super skinny and strung out, often shot by iconic photographer Corinne Day, explains that the shoots were just styled to make her look like she was on drugs.

"I had never even taken heroin — it was nothing to do with me at all. I think Corinne — she wasn't on heroin but always loved that Lou Reed song, that whole glamorizing the squat, white-and-black and sparse and thin, and girls with dark eyes. She loved that look," she said.

As for her weight, Moss explains that she was skinny because she didn't really have time to eat.

"I was thin, but that's because I was doing shows, working really hard. At that time, I was staying at a B and B in Milan, and you'd get home from work and there was no food. You'd get to work in the morning, there was no food. Nobody took you out for lunch when I started."
