London: Former supermodel Kate Moss says she will always be grateful to ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp for helping her cope with life in the spotlight during her initial years of fame.
The 38-year-old catwalk beauty dated the Hollywood actor between 1994 and 1998, and they were rumoured to have been engaged before their split, reported Daily Mirror.
Moss said he gave her valuable advice which she still finds useful.
"I was lucky to be with Johnny at that stage. He taught me a lot about fame. He told me `never complain, never explain`. That`s why I don`t use Twitter and things like that. I don`t want people to know what is true all the time and that`s what keeps the mystery," she wrote in her book, `Kate: The Kate Moss Book`.
Moss, Who was nicknamed `heroin chic` in the 1993, has also denied ever using the drug in her new autobiography.
