Kate Moss On Her Weirdest Modeling Gig & Twitter Aversion

Kate Moss has settled down quite a bit since the fashion world met her. Not only is she a married lady with a daughter, but her latest modeling gigs have been of the tamer variety (i.e. less of this). Most recently, she jumped from Topshop to Mango, modeling the wearable high street fashions as the brand's new face.

But Moss opened up about some stranger jobs she's held, including some most unpleasant encounters with animals. Speaking to the UK's The Times, Moss revealed her weirdest modeling experience:

"The snakes. I don't mind snakes, but sometimes they've been quite ... you know, snakes going up legs and snakes everywhere... Like giant white albino pythons and... really, yeah, lots of snakes. And I don't mind them, so it's all right. But yeah, if you didn't, I mean...

[...]

I don't mind them. I quite like them."

We definitely didn't realize that enjoying snakes all over your body was a requirement of being a top model. But Kate would know, as one of the most experienced -- and most scrutinized -- models in the business.

Moss told The Times that all the media attention, particularly to her appearance as she ages (Kate just turned 38 last week), can be exhausting:

"Just to go into a shop without getting stared at would be nice. I mean, I don't walk around like, 'Oh, I'm famous' -- I try to live as normal a life as possible -- but sometimes it's a bit annoying. It's fine; it's not a massive problem, but sometimes it's just a bit uncomfortable."

It's the reason, she says, that she stays far away from Twitter. "I couldn't think of anything worse than people knowing what I'm doing all the time. I just don't understand it. I don't get it at all. Why would anybody want to know?" she wonders.

Well, Kate, because you live the sort of life where people make statues of you, put your wedding pictures in Vogue and choose you for their biggest runway moments.

Seriously, can you imagine the tweets?
