Naomi Campbell: "I Thought I Wouldn't Survive..."
The supermodel talks about her time in the fashion industry...
40-year-old British supermodel Naomi Campbellhas recently admitted that she pushed herself too hard and had to sit down and evaluate what she wanted out of life. The fashion model claimed that she didn’t think that she would’ve survived this long in the industry.
She told In Touch Magazine: "To be honest, there were times I thought I wouldn't survive. The time between 1998 and 2005 was especially bad. During that time I avoided looking in the mirror, because I didn't like the person who was looking back at me. So I had to find out what I wanted and what I didn't want. The thing is, as a model you're used to being on the go, so just the thought of sitting down and thinking about something drives you crazy.
"I used to have a lot of problems. Amongst others I drank too much so I joined Alcoholics Anonymous to get and stay sober. I've grown up. I've stopped driving myself to exhaustion. I want to lead a calm life. I'm done with partying. When you get older things that seemed important to you when you were 20 suddenly lose significance."
Naomi Campbell is currently dating Russian billionaire, Vladislav Doronin.
