Former supermodel, celebrity TV host, and author Tyra Banks isn’t one of the many celebrities against plastic surgery. In fact, the host of the reality show “America’s Next Top Model” believes that plastic surgery is a very positive thing and stated in a recent interview that cosmetic surgery is, “absolutely fantastic”.
Tyra is a former Victoria’s Secret Angel and has shared many of her own body image issues on her talk show, and even on America’s Next Top Model. She remembers being teased for her looks when she first broke in to the modeling industry at the young age of 15. She recalls, “I was very much teased as a kid for my forehead, even on the internet…My modeling agency told me that if I had a smaller forehead, I would be too commercial. And they said the big forehead made me look more like an alien. So it made me look more high fashion, and I think hearing that made me feel good.”
She says that going under the knife should always be a choice, stating, “I feel that certain people are born in certain ways…And sometimes it’s not fair that certain people are born with certain things…I think it’s fine.”
Tyra even says that she may consider plastic surgery at some point in the future. The 38-year-old star explains, “…if one day I have wrinkles and I don’t like it, I don’t know if I’ll cut myself but maybe…a little Botox, fillers?”
