When she's not kissing the dirty one out of Babyshambles, Kate Moss is most famous for looking OK in nice clothes. Now that she's decided to take her clothes off, though, Kate Moss has really caused a stir.
Officially, Kate Moss has just made her acting debut starring in a series of short films for lingerie company Agent Provocateur which have made such an impression that the Agent Provocateur website crashed under the demand. Unofficially, though, Kate Moss has been filmed standing around in her bra and knickers and a bunch of overexcited 14-year-old boys' hormones leaked into their internet pipes and overheated the server. Probably – we heard that happens.
This time last year, Kate Moss was getting into all kinds of trouble after newspapers published pictures of what looked like her hoovering up loads of cocaine like there was no tomorrow. To make things worse for Kate Moss, she was the first model ever to ever even look at drugs, let alone take them. As a result, Kate Moss was dropped from many of the fashion houses that she represented and flew off into a murky spiral of shouting at photographers and giving boys her hair as a gift.
However, a year is a long time in fashion – even since you started reading this article, feathered eyelashes have come in and gone out of fashion 36 times – and now Kate Moss is back where she belongs, maybe almost getting married to Pete Doherty and having her clothes-wearing skills lauded by literally everyone that has ever lived. And now to top it off, Kate Moss has made her acting debut too.
Of course, Kate Moss is already friends with all kinds of actors – like her lesbian poledancing friend Lindsay Lohan – and she was once earmarked for a film about Dusty Springfield, so she'll have had plenty of preparation for her role as, er, a woman who sort of stands about in her underwear for a bit in a bunch of Agent Provocateur adverts. Hello reports:
The four films, which will be released over the next few weeks, last just four minutes and show the supermodel acting out a seductive dream sequence in various states of undress. Leaving Las Vegas director Mike Figgis, who shot the films over two nights in a mansion in London's Portland Place, revealed that the beauty was more nervous about her strong Croydon accent than stripping off for the cameras. "She was insecure about her voice," he said. "But she's got a nice voice." And he was clearly impressed by her acting efforts. "At the end I said to Kate, 'Listen, you're okay as an actress.' Kate, meanwhile, had jumped at the opportunity to work with Mike. "The films look amazing and I'm thrilled with the result," she says.
And we're also told that demand for the Kate Moss videos was so huge that the Agent Provocateur website crashed under the strain of
perverts film fans clamouring to see Kate Moss in her knickers. However, we're not so sure; this website has a habit of crashing even if we post a story about Jessica Simpson losing her voice, let alone a video of a skinny bird in her pants, so it's not a desperately unusual thing to happen. Plus – people, c'mom – you haven't already seen loads of pictures of Kate Moss nude? Anyone with Google Images and the ability to type knows that Kate Moss's nipples are never more than a few seconds away at any time.
Ahem, we heard.
