In the December issue of British Vogue, Lara Stone reveals she went to rehab for alcoholism earlier this year. Drugs were never a problem because she's Dutch, experimented enough in her homeland, and "never wanted to be that model on drugs, the sort who gives head for a line of coke." Good for her, but her vice lies in the bottle. She told the magazine, according to Fashionologie:
"I am a complete alcoholic. It used to be so easy to say to someone, 'Get me a bottle of vodka,' and they'd run and get it. Going to rehab was the best decision I ever made. The last six months have been the best of my life." A week after she left rehab, she was back in the game, attending the Costume Institute Gala in early May with Alexander Wang. "I sat there all night in complete shock. I didn't say a word."
We wouldn't know what to do with ourselves, either, facing the awkwardness of so many fancy, pretty people without a drop of alcohol. There's something so human about that — a model who doesn't just air kiss her way through life.
But she does worry about her weight, as has been reported millions of times, but never gets old to read.
"If I could have the discipline to be super-skinny, I would be. I think of dieting, then I eat pizza. I'm a woman, and every woman wants to be skinnier — unfortunately."
Again — so human. She even confesses that she hasn't been on a date for six months and "started a club with a girlfriend called the We Hate Men But We Can't Be Gay Club." However, when addressing her frequent toplessness in magazines, she says:
"Everyone's seen them. My girlfriends love them — they play with them!"
Okay, we can't relate to that. But once she pushed a model down a few stairs when she had to get on the runway and the girl was in her way. So we love her.
