Tyra Banks Reveals Cellulite Has Always Been an 'Insecurity'

Tyra Banks opens up about having cellulite, and said she would get it removed if she could

Tyra Banks continues to get candid about cosmetic surgery.

The supermodel – and co-author (with her mother) of a new memoir, Perfect Is Boring – recently revealed she had a nose job early in her career. “I feel I have a responsibility to tell the truth,” she said.

Now, she’s opening up again.

When asked if she would have more work done, Banks told E! News: “You know, I would, if there was something to remove cellulite I would totally do it…It doesn’t exist though.”

The 44-year-old explained that she “always had cellulite” and it continues to be an “insecurity.”

“When I walked down the Victoria’s Secret runway, I always covered my butt. Always,” she said. “People used to think, ‘Oh, she’s one of the top angels. That’s why she has a long train or extra.’ No, I was covering up my cellulite. Thank you Victoria’s Secret for working with me, they knew why I was doing it.”

Ultimately, Banks is hoping to encourage a more honest conversation about looks.

“Fix it or flaunt it — I think women should be able to do both,” she recently told PEOPLE. “There is a boundary line, either you’re super natural or you live at the plastic surgeon. It’s okay to hop back and forth over that line. You want a hair weave? Fine. You want permanent eyebrows? Fine. We as women need to stop judging.”
