Kate Moss has revealed that she lost her virginity at 14.
Moss, now 44, said she was discovered, by Storm Models' founder Sarah Doukas at JFK airport in New York, shortly afterwards.
Describing the moment which set her on the path to catwalk stardom, she told Love magazine: "I was smoking. I was 14 and I'd just lost my virginity.
"So I thought I was the bee's knees. I was in the airport, puffing away."
The model said of her attitude to stardom: "I don't believe the hype. Ever. I think to keep your feet on the ground in this business is so important."
And the mother-of-one added: "I've seen girls come and go, when they think they're suddenly more important ... it's like woah."
Doukas is said to have approached Moss as soon as the seatbelt sign was turned off on their flight back to England, after spotting her at the airport.
