Naomi Campbell: "I Made Anger Management Famous"

Naomi Campbell went on a British talk show last week to promote her new reality TV program The Face, and was moved to discuss her competitive nature and anger issues.

"I think I made the name anger management famous," she says. "When that film came out with Adam Sandler I thought, I did that first. Anger is an emotion, and there are things I had to deal with, just like us all," she says while reclining on a couch and conversing with foppish host Jonathan Ross.

She also talks, in a roundabout way, about her addictions. "Whatever I've done in my life—drugs, sex, rock and roll—I've enjoyed my life. I'm happy where I am today. I don't want to go back," she said. "I came to a realization at 29 that I didn't like myself the way I was. And that was it," she says. Naomi Campbell, zen?
