Naomi Campbell Was Once Scolded for Showing Up to Work Late
Naomi Campbell one got scolded for showing up late.
Absolutely Fabulous star, Joanna Lumley, spilled some dirt about the supermodel during a recent luncheon to promote the film adaptation of the highly-popular series. The actress recalled the time a stern floor manager told Campbell (age 25 at the time) off for showing up to set three hours later.
“You’re working with a lot of very professional actresses. They all pitched up on time, and they know their lines,” Lumley, 70, recalled the manager saying, according to Page Six. “Darling, you’ll do that tomorrow, or you’re out.”
It turns out even divas get scolded. Campbell apparently showed up to work at 9 a.m. the next day. “So maybe in her past, nobody’s ever asked her to be on time — they just expected her to be a diva,” Lumley’s co-star, Jennifer Saunders, added.
Although she did not attend Monday night’s (July 18, 2016) New York premiere of the movie, Campbell was one of many model cameos appeared in the series. Kate Moss, Jourdan Dunn, and Suki Waterhouse are all featured in the film adaptation.
