Victoria's Secret Angel Elsa Hosk Opens Up About Her Struggles With Alcoholism

 

Victoria's Secret Angel Elsa Hosk has revealed she once battled alcoholism in her late teens in a candid Instagram Q&A with her 5.3 million followers.
The 30-year-old model, who was given the honour of wearing the Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra in 2018, was asked by a follower whether she "smokes or drinks", and responded with a lengthy paragraph about her sobriety.
"I got sober when I was 20. It's been 10 years of no drinking," Hosk revealed.
"Being sober for me didn't mean that my life came to an end (which I thought at the time) it was the beginning of a real, beautiful, big, happy successful life. Quite the opposite of what I thought!
"It was a struggle in the beginning because I'm an alcoholic (something you have to remind yourself of for the rest of your life) but it's the best decision I ever made. It's ok not to drink or do drugs."

Hosk was also candid about her smoking habits, adding: "I quit smoking 2 years ago. I still vape, hope to quit that too one day."
It's the first time the Swedish-born model has spoken about her battle with sobriety. The revelation came as part of an 'ask me anything' session Hosk held with her Instagram followers, in which she also shared glimpses inside her impressive wardrobe, and some insight into her daily diet habits.
Hosk is not the only Victoria's Secret model who has spoken about struggles with substance abuse. Former angel Gisele Bündchen said in her autobiography that she relied on "stimulants and depressants to get me through the day" during her early days in the industry.
"Coffee to get me going in the morning. Cigarettes to punctuate the long hours and create a space for me at work without anyone—stylists, hair people, makeup people—touching me. Steak, burgers, french fries, pasta, pizza, candy, and whatever else to keep up my energy. Red wine to relax me and help me fall asleep," she said.

Good for Elsa!

Good for Elsa. I remember when I first started looking through her thread, there were sooo many pictures of her in high school/young with drinks in her hand and at parties. I just figured that was normal for kids anywhere and I've heard it's even more normal to drink in high school in Sweden, but all those pictures mustve been the beginning of her heavy drinking or already during her heavy drinking. Glad she's ok!!! I did hard drugs for about 6 years straight, so I know it's not easy to quit an addiction and I have the utmost respect for her.

New VS beauty page started following all the Angels (except Grace they followed her fan page @graceelizabethdiary probably by mistake) and there isn't Behati, Lily nor Romee on the list.. what do you think?

 

i think romee is safe. [she follows them and] she was promoting their last fragrance a few months ago ?

Okay I don't post on here often (I just really love reading what you guys have to say) but I also want to bring up Romee did press less than a month ago for the fragrance event and was the first angel actually posted on the page. It's probably safe to not use who the page is following as an answer of who's left, given there's already errors in it's follow list. (Even though I also think it's probably safe to assume Behati and Lily are out at this point. I'd be more surprised if they're still in but I'm often disappointed and surprised with VS these days so - we'll see.)

I don't tend to pay that levels of attention to Romee honestly but looking through this thread there was a BTS Instagram story from Jerome Duran with Romee where he tagged VS? Not sure if it was an old one or not but that's the last I've heard of her shooting. 

 

I really don't exactly care either way...  given how much time Romee has been spending with her family she is the weakest NA link so her contract not being renewed wouldn't surprise me but it also wouldn't surprise me if she's still an angel and whoever their social media intern is... just doesn't want to follow her.  I've always been more of a "see what occurs over the next few weeks/months" person than "pay attention to Instagram followings" person, so I'm curious to see how things go from here.

 

The combination she didn't seem to shoot for the project they even had Candice for and the fact the page doesn't follow her is interesting however, and does points in favor of Romee's contract ending though.

I really appreciate you both for showing me support, thank you. It's been about 3 years that I've been mostly clean, but have slipped up here and there. I'm 30 now with a professional job so I"ve been doing fine as long as I continue to work. thank you again Ivancica:hello:

 

 

As for Romee, I'm still conflicted on her as an Angel. She is GORGEOUS, I love her smile and her happy attitude and her vlogs are really great, but she just doesn't cut it for me in a lot of pictures anymore. If VS just had her smile and be happy and jump around, she would be great. She just doesn't do sexy/serious well. She looked great in that pink dress at the summer scent event thing and she does great at the VSFS, but she sucks at print work. 

I wish Lily and Behati weren't done. I loved those two for VS!!

yeah they are awesome in so many ways!!! i've already loved reading their posts, but the ones they sent me to were really special. 

you're awesome too because you helped me find some trippy Beatles songs so thank you to you too!

 

to keep it on topic, I used to love the VS swim videos, like especialyl from 2013 and before. I was just thinking about the one with Candice and Doutzen from that year and it was such a good video. random, but that's what I was thinking (not that anyone cares lol)

I believe it wasn't easy so you really need to be proud of yourself. :)

Agreed! :clap:

 

Keeping with the VS topic, if the powers that be would let Rome be bubbly like we know her to be, that would give VS two bubbly energetic type angels along with Alexina the Red.

Sidenote - wasn't joja instagram account made to advertise vsx? 

At least that's how I perceived it.

Yet, I noticed recently that they wear some other brands in their posts.

 

Apropo contracts - I would say that girls have diferrent types of contracts with different $$$ amounts (100 k still sounds low to me).

Some of the girls do beauty, others don't. Some do more vsx, some do swim, ... Some shoot much more than others in general. I would expect all this to be a part of their contract.

Well, that's a obvious one. Some girls get more money than others, some based on how much they shoot or how big they are (or how much you sell). Right now, I think the contracts go like this (from the biggest ones to the little ones): Candice > Taylor and Elsa > Josephine and Jasmine >  Barbara, Sara, Lais, Grace, maybe Romee > Stella, Martha, Alexina, Leomie. Not 100 % sure but I think this is as close as it gets. But IMO how much you shoot doesn't necessarily define how much you get but in how your contract is built and how the brand can profit off you.
