Los Angeles: Lottie Moss, sister of supermodel Kate Moss, says she “never really wanted” to be a model.
The 18-year-old said she didn’t see herself following in her older sibling’s footsteps until she was scouted at Kate’s wedding to Jamie Hince in 2011.
“It’s quite funny actually. I never really wanted to be a model when I was younger. It was something I didn’t think I could do – until I was scouted at my sister’s wedding. I remember thinking, ‘Yeah, that actually sounds fun’,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Lottie as saying.
“I was still at school when the agency saw me, and I mostly just did test shoots for a while. When I turned 16, they smoothed me into it and signed me up properly, and the work increased gradually from there. We were careful not to let it interfere with school, but I could do school work while I was away,” she added.
Lottie also said her parents Linda Shepherd and Peter Edward Moss were never strict when she was growing up.
