Earlier this week, Lottie Moss faced backlash after sharing her thoughts on Vulture’s nepotist baby article.
The feature looks at how many celebrities in the world of acting, music, and modeling have famous relatives who have undeniably contributed to their success in the industry.
However, Kate Moss’ sister, model Lottie, disagreed with the article, saying on her Twitter page that she was “disgusted” by the nepotism narrative.
“I’m fed up with people blaming nepotism for their lack of wealth, fame and success. Obviously it’s not fair that people from famous families get an advantage because of it. What do you think? Life isn’t fair – if you set your mind on what you can achieve,” she wrote.
This view sparked immediate criticism, and apparently after reading some of the reactions to her post, Lottie clarified her stance. 😂😂😂😂,” she wrote.
“I am so grateful to have been given the chance without being perverse,” she continued. I am privileged for many reasons, and as I say, I appreciate it, but it makes no sense to speak ill of others because it doesn’t make sense.
However, the backlash continued to grow and eventually Lottie deactivated his Twitter account.
Lottie’s comments came just weeks after she claimed Kate was not supporting her career. I understand coming from a position, but believe it or not, that person didn’t really support me.”
“Remember that everything in this world is relative and everyone has their own traumas and experiences that they choose to deal with in their own way. Please be kind,” followed by a long post.
Now, Lottie has said of her “traumatic” experience in the modeling industry that she was “incredibly lucky” not to develop an eating disorder.
Writing for Glamor UK’s new issue, Lottie recalled a body-shaming comment she faced from an agent who said she called her a ‘ham and cheese sandwich girl’.
In the article, Lottie explains how she was scouted at the age of 13 and started working in the fashion industry three years later. She also said that being Kate Moss’ younger sister meant that she received immediate media attention.
“I was instantly thrust into the spotlight and always felt like I was living in her shadow,” she wrote. It was really hard for me growing up, especially not being that close to my sister (we still don’t really have a relationship.
“I was asked about my sister a lot. I would go to a friend’s house and there was a picture of my sister on the wall. It really caused a lot of abandonment issues,” she continued. “It’s hard when you have people who are ‘close’ who do exactly the same job as you and who are already very prominent in the industry but don’t have any advice or guidance.”
Lottie says this made her feel even more “pressured” to “look a certain way”, and when she moved to London at 18, she was given a stylist who picked every outfit she wore. rice field. to the store, in case she has her picture taken.
She also revealed that her agent told her to hire a personal trainer during their first meeting, but even when she was training five times a week, her body was under scrutiny. rice field.
“As fashion week approached, I was told I had to be 23″ waist and 30″ hips if I wanted to be on the runway,” Lottie wrote. “I’m 5 foot 5. Whenever I dined on set or on a casting, my agents would laugh at me. They would say, ‘Here comes the ham and cheese sandwich girl again,’ I’m eating my sandwich!'”
“And I just laugh,” she admitted. “At the time, when I was little, I didn’t realize how traumatic it was. Everything they told me. I’m incredibly lucky that I didn’t develop an eating disorder.”
Lottie said the ensuing years were “very dark” for her. It was done,” he claimed.
She also recalled wanting to cry when she didn’t fit in the clothes provided for the shoot because they weren’t sample sizes.
“I cried on set when I felt too uncomfortable. They fixed my makeup. I couldn’t,” Lottie said.
The model then fell into a “deep depression” and found herself unwilling to work, with her agent calling her “ungrateful.”
“I completely lost myself and had a mental breakdown,” she said.
But thankfully, Lottie is in a much better place, taking a step away from modeling to focus on her OnlyFans career.
“When I think of that vulnerable 18-year-old girl who was told to get off to lose weight and was ridiculed for eating a sandwich, I wish I could tell her it’s okay to be yourself.” She concluded. I’m relieved. I wish I’d found out sooner.”
