Asked who she admired, the 43-year-old beauty told E! News: "I have to say Jennifer Lopez because she's so beautiful and so stunning. I'm a huge fan. Great friend and a huge fan."
Naomi was on hand to help Jennifer, 44, celebrate after she received the prestigious Vanguard Award for being a LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) rights advocate at the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday night (04.12.14).
And 'The Face' star admitted she was extremely proud of her friend.
She said: "She deserves it. I love Jennifer. I think she's an amazing singer, actress, designer, mother."
Accepting her award, the 'American Idol' judge opened up about her special relationship with her aunt Marisa, who is gay.
She said: "I've always felt a tremendous love from the LGBT community and the LGBT community has always supported me and returned that love. Marisa was my cool aunt. She was my mom's older sister and she lived in New York City. I lived in the Bronx and she lived in Manhattan, it was like worlds away! She wanted to be an actress and I always wanted to be like her. Marisa grew up gay in a time when it meant life could be very difficult and that her struggles were mostly kept to herself."
