Before Tyra Banks became one of the most famous models of her time, the host of America’s Next Top Model, or launched her own cosmetics and skincare lines, she was a major runway model with a few major obstacles to overcome: Her weight — and her feud with Naomi Campbell.
Banks (along with her Norwegian boyfriend, Erik Asla), was a guest on Norwegian/Swedish talk show Skavlan, and she was candid about about the early days in her career. After being declined by six Los Angeles modeling agencies and accepted only for runway modeling by the seventh,
Do they really gain a freckle for every soul that they steal? Perhaps not, but the ones on this list sure have one for every heart that they’ve broken. Despite growing up and being ridiculed, the so-called “albinos of the white people” – psshh, because you know, albinos don’t exist in white people (please detect the sarcasm) – seem to be taking over the world.
