London: She is as famous for her furious temper as for her modelling career, but Naomi Campbell has revealed that she is still struggling with her anger issues and her efforts are very much a “work in progress”.
In an in-depth interview that will be broadcast on Wednesday on satellite and cable TV, the 41-year-old British supermodel is asked if she has finally ended her sporadic attacks and tantrums.
“Work in progress. I’ve apologised, accepted responsibility, I did my community service,” The Daily Mail quoted her as replying.
Campbell also spoke of her personal battle against cocaine.
“The challenge was to go back and face things I hadn’t dealt with, [it’s] scary for anyone to go and look at themselves in the mirror and deal with them, leave that baggage there and move forward,” she said.
“I didn’t feel good. I didn’t want to work. I lost many friends. I was emotionally and physically drained. I don’t look back on it in a negative way. That was my calling, my path...?everyone’s path is different,” she added.
Despite her troubled past, the Streatham-born model claims she has no regrets.
“There’s no reason for doing that. It’s more like seeing or understanding a pattern you have to break,” she added.
