If you’re world famous, how do you make sure that the inevitable documentary that’s made about you is up to scratch?
Kate Moss has the answer: she’s doing it herself.
On Thursday, Variety reported that the British supermodel will be executive producing her own biopic.
Titled Moss & Freud, it will be a deep dive into Moss’s relationship with painter Lucian Freud, who died in 2011.
Best known for his portrait work – including of fellow artists Francis Bacon and Frank Auerbach – Freud also painted a nearly life-size nude portrait of Moss over the course of 2002, when she was pregnant with daughter Lila.
Sitting for the painting was an experience that Moss considered to be one of her most formative. As a rare celebrity subject for the painter, the work went on to sell for £3.9m at American auction house Christie’s.
Moss explained that she had hired James Lucas to direct, after watching his Oscar-winning short film The Phone Call.
“I knew that James would convey the emotion in the storytelling in a fitting way, one this memoir deserves,” she said.
“Having been involved in the project and script development from the beginning I am now very excited to see the film come to life.” (Standard)
