Lara Stone’s wild past included boozing, fighting and a stint in rehab

Friday, October 29, 2010

LONDON - Lara Stone, hailed as one of the most in-demand models on the planet, has boasted about her wild past, which included boozing, fighting and stint in rehab.

With her curvy, sensual figure and gap-toothed smile, it’s easy to see why top designers overlook her debauched past - and why comedian David Walliams wasted no time in asking for her hand in marriage.

“I’ve started many of them, but no one ever hits me back. I used to love slapping people in the face when I was drunk. I thought it was really funny, so I did a lot of that. I’d pick fights with doormen and bouncers a lot. Ex-boyfriends. But nobody ever punched me back,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.

It’s quite an admission and she confessed further that why she pushed one hapless model down the stairs.

“I kept saying ‘Excuse me, excuse me,’ because I had to get to the catwalk, but she just kept posing. So I pushed her. It was only a few stairs,” she said.

The Dutch model used to hit the party scene with gusto, normally clutching a vodka and soda.

“It used to be whiskey for a very long time but I kept having blackouts so I switched,” she says.

The supermodel also talked about her stint in rehab.

“I Googled a bunch of places and I found this one in Cape Town, South Africa, called Stepping Stones. I stayed there for a month. It was really difficult, lots of talking and crying,” she said.

Recently, Lara has won damages from a magazine and a US photographer and decided to donate all the money to Great Ormond Street children’s hospital. (ANI)
