    Tyra Banks

    Last night, supermodel (and super businesswoman) Tyra Banks appeared on the Larry King Live show and, amidst talking about Chris Brown, Oprah, and trying to teach him how to “smize,” Tyra discussed hair – again! Watch the clip below:

    Tyra talks weight and body image below:

    Larry King: Are you looking to be Oprah? Is that it?
    Tyra Banks: Am I looking to be Oprah? Oh, Lord, if I tried, I would fail.
    King: But you’re approaching it — magazines, shows, specials. …
    Banks: She is like the — the Godmama, you know? There will never be another. There never has been and never will be another. But looking to be her — no. I mean, I — I started as a model, so there’s a path that’s quite different.
    King: The last time you were on you were dealing with the “F” word, meaning fat. You were fighting back. There [was] a non-flattering tabloid photo of you — remember? In the swimsuit?
    Banks: Yes.
    King: You lost weight since then.
    Banks: Yes.
    King: Do you still feel an image pressure? Do you think — you think like a fat person?
    Banks: I don’t actually. You know, when I — when I told the world to kiss my fat — I can say “ass” right?
    King: Yes, you can.
    Banks: Yes. When I told the world to kiss my fat ass, I remained that size for two years. I maintained it with my ice cream and my salad with ranch and dressing and croutons and bacon bits. Like I — I didn’t look at myself even on television and think that I was too big or — I don’t know. I didn’t — it didn’t connect. But since I have lost a lot of weight, and it started with the — a weight loss challenge, actually at the top of this year. So I’m two years after “kiss my fat ass.”
    King: When you look in the mirror, are you happy with the way you look?
    Banks: I’ve — OK, I might be doing a little TMI — do you know what TMI is? Too much information? Video Watch Banks discuss her body image »
    King: Well, give it to me anyway.
    Banks: I always feel great when I don’t have clothes on. So at home, by myself, walking past …
    King: Oh, we’re glad you mean that now.
    Banks: Just too much information. But I always feel good that way.
    King: So you don’t look at yourself nude and say, “Oh, I don’t like this.” You like it?
    Banks: No, unless the lighting is bad in the dressing room. But, no. I always feel good. But sometimes certain clothes, when I put them on and they don’t fit the way that I would like them to, that’s when I tend to get self-conscious.
