Referring to one actor she dated in the early 1990s, she added: ‘For me, privacy is important to know each other, and I always worry that my job will not allow that. But I have ways. I was taught by Robert De Niro.’
Speaking on her battle with substance and alcohol abuse. she said: ‘I’m a survivor,’ Naomi declared. ‘I don’t have a squeaky-clean life, and I don’t pretend to. I was the first to say that I was an addict, and I’m so grateful to God to be a recovering addict and a recovering alcoholic.’
