Los Angeles - Kate Moss got "Mossed" in South Africa.

In a revealing interview featured in the December issue of Vanity Fair, international supermodel Kate Moss describes a trip to South Africa where she and her friend went out partying late one evening.

Kate described a phenomenon known only to her friends as "getting Mossed".

"People that don't know me get Mossed. It means, I was gonna go home, but then I just got led astray. In the best possible way, of course. I mean, it's always fun, and a good time," Kate elaborated.

'It can be a nightmare'

Kate's friend Jess Hallett immediately countered her statement during the interview, saying: "It can be a nightmare if you're the only one there."

Hallett recalled a specific night which they spent in South Africa, and revealed how they got to their hotel after a night out. "I remember phoning downstairs, and saying, 'Can we have an alarm call for 7am, please?' They said, 'That's in five minutes, madam.'"

Hallett also recalls that the rest of their day was absolute hell after their night out.

"We had to wait for this jet, in this hangar in South Africa, in this awful heat. We hadn't been to sleep. We were literally lying with our faces on the concrete, trying to keep cool."

Nervous breakdown

The article, that gives readers an in-depth look into the topical life of Kate Moss, also reveals how she had a "nervous breakdown" at the start of her fashion career.

"I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark [Mark Wahlberg] and Herb Ritts. It didn't feel like me at all. I felt really bad straddling this buff guy. I didn't like it," Kate said.

"I couldn't get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die. I went to the doctor and he said, 'I'll give you some Valium,' and Francesca Sorrenti [Kate's friend], thank God, said, 'You're not taking that.'

"It was just anxiety. Nobody takes care of you mentally. There's a massive pressure to do what you have to do. It was just really weird - a stretch limo coming to pick you up from work. I didn't like it. But it was work and I had to do it," she told Vanity Fair.
