Should Naomi Campbell ever have a movie made about her life, the model has specific requirements for who takes on the lead role.
Naomi, 52, has explained that she wants ‘someone from south London’ to play her on the big screen.
The fashionista would love for someone to make a film about her life and career, and she’d also be rooting for an ‘unknown’ actress to portray her.
Naomi – who was born in the UK capital – said: ‘I would like it to be someone, who is unknown and preferably someone from south London.’
The catwalk star has experienced plenty of ups and downs in her life, including battling drug addiction and alcohol addiction, which would certainly make for powerful viewing on the silver screen.
Now, Naomi is determined to support the stars of the future.

She told the Daily Mail newspaper: ‘I’ve had my success, and I want to see the success of the next generation.
In 2021, meanwhile, Naomi pledged to do everything she can to ‘uplift the next generation’.
The model was named as a global ambassador for the Commonwealth Trust and promised to help to ‘create a better future’ for young people.
She explained: ‘This is something very close to my heart, and I will continue to do everything I can to uplift the next generation, so they can create a better future for their communities.’

As for her personal life, we wonder whether Naomi would also be keen to share an insight into her family in a biopic.
