Where you’ve seen her:
Performing her supermodel duties on catwalks and in magazines worldwide. She made the leap to acting with appearances on TV's The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, which led to roles in the movies Higher Learning, Love Stinks, Love & Basketball, and Coyote Ugly. Her triumphant return to television came in the form of the UPN reality series America's Next Top Model. She now hosts The Tyra Banks Show.
No lookalike contest:
“Sometimes it's a mob and sometimes it's 10 people asking for an autograph. And if I'm wearing a baseball cap, people are, like, 'You look like Tyra Banks, but she's cuter than you.' And I say, 'She sure is.'”
Fast food nation:
“I'm so simple. If I don't have groceries I eat popcorn and Tang for dinner. I'm like, I think I make enough money to hire a chef.”
Reign of Tyra:
“I want an empire like Oprah's. I may do it with a little more cleavage, but I plan to get there.”
