Sophie Anderton: Anderton attended Redland
High School for Girls in Bristol between 1988 and 1993. At the age of 11, she
sustained serious injuries in a car accident necessitating some 18 operations
from which she took four years to recover. In 1993 she briefly attended Bristol
Cathedral School before becoming a model at age 16.
She became famous in 1996 after appearing in the provocative Gossard Glossies "Girl in the grass" national advertising campaign shot by Herb Ritts, with the strapline "Who said a woman couldn't get pleasure from something soft?". The campaign attracted a record number of complaints (321) to the Advertising Standards Authority, none of which were upheld. The ASA later found out that the majority of complaints came from women who had never seen the ads, and had been encouraged to write in by an outraged newspaper columnist.
Earnings of £30,000 per week propelled her into the ranks of the it-girls and allowed her to lead a lifestyle of parties, drugs and sex. The UK tabloid press reported this in detail, even more so when she became addicted to cocaine, had a tumultuous affair with footballer and fellow addict Mark Bosnich, and became involved in prostitution.
She traces her cocaine addiction back to when she was prescribed morphine after her car accident as a child
