Carré Otis seemed to have it all. With her memorable face and perfect figure, she had been signed as a teenager to Elite Modeling by John Casablancas himself and in rapid succession, she had appeared on the covers of French Elle, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Allure, and Mirabella, to skim just the top of her credits. Beneath that frothy surface, however, things were festering. Everything came to a head during her brief (1992-1998) marriage with actor Mickey Rourke. During their volatile relationship, she battled not only anorexia and heroin addiction, but also her abuse of alcohol, antidepressants, uppers, downers, and diet pills. In Beauty, Disrupted, she describes how she finally banished the monsters lurking inside.
