Supermodel Naomi Campbell has been doing her thing on the modelling scene for many years now and, like a number of models over the years, Naomi has also turned her hand to the acting industry. Campbell plays Camilla Marks in the new series Empire but, while her character is considered a cougar, Naomi insists that she is far from one.
Campbell was chatting to The Sun newspaper, when she explained, "(Camilla) is in her 40s, she likes young guys. I don't date younger men so it's not natural to me. Hakeem is younger than my brother. I don't like that word (cougar). It's not that big a deal, it's just a word. But I'm from London and it's not a word we associate with and say very often is it?"
It is fair to say that Naomi Campbell is one of the most beautiful, successful and confident models in the business and she really owns the runway when modelling in fashion shows. However, Naomi has admitted that she felt nervous when she had to make out with her Empire co-star Bryshere Y. Gray on her first day of shooting on the set of the new show.
Campbell added, "It is nerve racking to have people around you on your first day, on a pool table making out. But you have to do it, you have to get on with it, you have to get over it. I am shy at times in certain things and that was something I was shy about. But I did have fun."
Empire season one aired on Fox earlier in the year and has already been confirmed for a second season.
