Campbell Denies Canadian Criticism

September 30, 1998

TORONTO (AP) _ Naomi Campbell insists she likes Canada. Really.

In town filming a movie, the supermodel was responding to a headline in Sunday’s New York Post: ``Naomi gives Canada big chill.″

``I chose to shoot here,″ she said from the set Tuesday. ``I wanted to come here.″

A column in the Post said Campbell’s ``imperious behavior _ we’re inured to it here _ while she’s been shooting her new film ... has put some Toronto noses out of joint.″ It also said: ``There were even complaints the diva was smoking in non-smoking areas″ of her hotel and throwing tantrums on the set.

Not true, said Campbell, as she puffed on a cigarette. ``I don’t pay any attention to stuff like that,″ she added.
