Designer Marc Jacobs has said that claims he was fat while he was addicted to heroin are "the stupidest thing [he] ever heard".









Marc, who spent time in rehab and who is now clean, told German magazine ‘Interview’ that he was never a fat heroin addict’.



“That was the stupidest thing I ever heard, because first of all, I was never a fat heroin addict. I was a skinny heroin addict and I got over that luckily, but I was never — I was fat when I stopped doing drugs, not fat while I was doing drugs. I don't know anyone who's fat when they're doing drugs,” he said.



Marc controversially professed his love of cigarettes. He is now proud of the way he looks – the designer is famously buff – so feels he can indulge some vices.

“Smoking's the best. Smoking and sleeping are the two best things in the world,” he said.

“I think perfection's an ideal — I don't think you can ever really achieve it. There's always something to do. I mean, I keep adding tattoos and piercings, and all of sorts of stuff, and I don't know, maybe, who knows what I'll do in the future, but I'd like to think I'm not done.”



Speaking about Victoria Beckham who starred in ads for his label posing in a bag with just her legs poking out, he said: “I said, ‘Let’s treat her like she’s a kind of product.’ Because she is, she’s created herself.”
