*Apparently super model Naomi Campbell is an even better actress than we thought.
We say that in light of finding out that she was rather apprehensive about filming the now infamous sex scenes with Bryshere “Yazz” Gray for “Empire.”
Well dang, she had us fooled. Who knew?!
Here’s what she told “Extra’s” Tracey Edmonds about that and some other stuff:
On maintaining privacy after 29 years in the business:
I think I live my life pretty well in the sense of if I don’t want to be seen, I’m not seen, I find a way to have my privacy, so I go where I need to go to have my peace.
On the public’s reaction to her character Camilla:
People call me Camilla in the airport. And I’m like, ‘My name’s not Camilla. It’s Naomi, but thank you.’ But it gets me to the front of the line now.
On getting involved with “Empire”:
I spoke with Lee [Daniels]; we’ve been friends for a really long time. And I’ve been friends with Brian [Grazer] since I was 17. He said, ‘Do you want to do this?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah.’ It wasn’t something I really thought about for too much. I’m really happy that I’m part of such a great show. I’m honored to be working with such amazing talent like Taraji [Henson] and Terrence [Howard] and Yazz.
On those steamy love scenes:
My first day was really, um, I was like, ‘We have to get on a pool table and start making out?’ I’m shy. Modeling is my job, I know, but it’s different when you’re doing action in front of people, and people are around you and you have to get down to it. And with television, you know that you only have a certain amount of time for a scene. There’s so much to do in the day, so. I had to get to it.
