Amber Valletta came out as an addict in 2014, and things have been going up ever since. The model admitted that she had started sniffing things at age eight, before eventually landing in an industry where drugs and alcohol are widely accepted. At age 25, she started to get help because she feared death.
Amber joined the bevy of encouraging women at the 2016 ELLE “Women in Hollywood” Awards in Los Angeles, at one point showing her gratitude for the women who push each other up.
