Supermodel Amber Valletta seems to have it all with the stunning looks and successful career, but she is opening up about her difficult battle with drugs and alcohol on the MindBodyGreen.com website.
The website is designed to create dialogues and conversations between people on how to live better and healthier lives. Valletta posted a 15-minute video where she explains that during her 20s, when she was at the high point in her career, she was actually struggling with addiction.
“I had a multi-million dollar deal and I showed up the first day to shoot this campaign high and drunk. I didn’t care. And that’s to just show you addiction takes you to the worst places,” Valletta told a live audience.
“My hope is that someone, somewhere, in this room, out of this room, will hear something, that will help them and perhaps get them out of the shadows and the darkness of addiction, and bring them into the light.”
Valletta was able to achieve sobriety when she was 25. Now 40, she is still modeling and acting (most recently on ABC’s Revenge), and is more beautiful than ever. You can view her candid video here.
