Yes, Tyra Banks has curves and she’s no longer the rail thin model that use to walk Paris Runway shows. And guess what? She’s okay with that. In an interview with US Weekly, the 39-year-old spoke candidly about why she’s not a fan of dieting and prefers to have more meat on her bones (my words, not hers).

To me, it’s like, I lost weight a couple of years ago and that just changed the way I ate, it changed the way I thought. I actually got too thin because I have tunnel vision. So when they said this is what you have to do, I was too strict, and I realized I needed to cheat way more because it didn’t look good. I didn’t realize I was too thin until I started seeing pictures and I thought, ‘Oh, I don’t like that. That doesn’t look good.’ I need some *ss.
I was at the height of my success when I was at my biggest. So then I go, ‘Why am I shedding weight for press when, like, I told the world to kiss my fat ass and had Emmys and Top Model was at its peak and I was on Time magazine’s top influential people two times in a row — all with a big *ss!
