Naomi Campbell has been making the rounds to promote the next season of The Face and during her visit with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, the iconic supermodel was rocking her 'fro and discussing her thoughts on plastic surgery, maintaining her amazing physique and why she's never starved herself to stay in the game.

"You know, I have Jamaican-Chinese heritage. I love my food. And no, I've never... I came [in the industry] with a group of ladies — Linda, Cindy, Christy, Tatjana, Stephanie, and that just was not [it]. We were friends, we loved each other and we loved to go eat with each other. That was not a part of that era," she said.

Campbell also admitted that she doesn't like working out hard-core to keep fit.

"I actually studied dance since I was 3 years old. And then I have to be honest for many, many years, I did nothing… I mean, I work out now. I do like yoga and Pilates but that's it. I'm not somebody who likes 'gym-gym.'"

As for whether she'd ever go under the knife to stay forever beautiful, Campbell said absolutely not, unless it was medically necessary.

"Listen, I have a scar. I had a scar on my upper right lip since I was 3 years old. And I mean, when I first came to New York, my agent said to me at the time we have to get that done and my mother said, 'No.' And I've never had it done. And makeup will cover it and that's the way it is," Campbell said. "I think if you want to get plastic surgery for yourself personally, that's up to you and do whatever makes you feel good. But to do it for a job? No."

"I personally don't want to go under the knife unless I really need to or unless it's like some surgical emergency," she added.
