Kate Moss stays ''sane'' by surrounding herself with her close friends.

The 43-year-old supermodel has admitted she is able to cope with her celebrity status by spending quality time with her pals, who she has known for over two decades.

Asked how she deals with the pressure of the fashion industry, the catwalk icon told Selfridges.com: ''I keep sane with my friends, all of them I've known for 20 years, so they know me very well, and I know them very well.''

Although Kate is known for enjoying a night out on the town, she has curbed her partying ways and has admitted she much prefers a night in.

When asked if she would rather an evening in or out, the British star - who has 15-year-old daughter Lila with her former partner Jefferson Hack - said: ''Night in.''

And Kate's ideal thing to do is amble around London's secret gardens, or whisk her and her family off to the countryside to escape the chaos of England's capital, or a holiday to Jamaica.

She said: ''I'll go to the park secret gardens, Hampstead Heath.

''Or a weekend in the country with the family and the dogs.''

Kate was scouted at the age of 14 years old by Storm Model Management, and she has admitted in her three decades at the helm of the fashion industry her ''career highlight'' was when she graced the cover of British Vogue magazine for the first time in 1993.

Asked about her favourite moment in her career, Kate - who has since featured on the cover of the publication across all editions over 65 times - said: ''My career highlight was probably my first Vogue cover because I never thought I was going to get one.''
