Naomi Campbell Still A 'Work In Progress'
The British supermodel underwent anger management classes following a 1998 attack on her former assistant, and she also carried out a 200-hour community service sentence in 2008 for assaulting two police officers at London's Heathrow Airport.
Campbell is adamant she is now a changed woman, but she is still working on controlling her temper.
In an interview with U.S. TV show Cnbc Meets, due to air on Wednesday (28Sep11), she says, "(I am a) work in progress. I've apologised, accepted responsibility, I did my community service... It's more like seeing or understanding a pattern you have to break."
The 41-year-old catwalk star also opens up about her crippling battle with drug addiction, revealing she is glad to have put her troubled past behind her, adding, "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.
"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."
