Tyra Banks recently launched her own charity named Tzone Foundation to help boost young girls' self-esteem. The model has always been a spokesperson for women of different sizes and says that she doesn't want girls to have the same weight insecurities she struggled with. She opened up on how her weight fluctuated dangerously during her early years: ''Part of my desire to help these girls is because of my own insecurities at that age. The summer I was 11 years old, I lost 30 lbs in three months. It was the 1980s, during the Ethiopian famine, and I got a lot of comments. My school thought I was ill. It was a very painful time.''

She says that while she was very thin for a while, she also went through a period where she was taunted for being fat:  ''Who would have thought that the girl who was once forced to go to hospital because she was too skinny would one day be called too fat? I lived both of those.''

Tyra believes there is just one beauty ideal which Hollywood and the fashion industry are responsible for and she thinks people's attitudes need to change: ''The skinnier a lot of actresses are, or singers are, or celebrities are, they tend to get a lot of coverage. A lot of, 'Oh, she's such a fashion darling, look at her, let's take her picture as she goes shopping, let's put her on the cover of our magazine.' The fashion industry has a very narrow definition of what beauty is - specifically now, it's a size 0 [or] 00.''
