Tyra Banks Interview
with Dahlia Dean
This interview was taken from Supermodel.com's Dahlia Dean...
You seem to be very passionate about children's issues, where did this interest stem from, do you have a lot of children in your family?
I have a lot of little cousins, nieces and nephews. Children and animals have always been my passion I guess because they're so innocent. They're born innocent and usually what corrupts them is society, so that's my passion. I want to have my own some day so I can direct that passion to my own.
Are you still dating Seal?
Any marriage plans?
No. We're just happy and taking things really slowly.
Did you have a good time with him in Monaco?
It was all right. A lot of paparazzi. We couldn't do anything.
A lot was made about the fact that you were the first black model on the cover of Sports Illustrated. What do you think about that?
I think it was great that I broke the barrier. I guess it will go down in history -- modeling history -- you know, so it's nice.
I know that you've been in some films in the past. Do you have any more acting aspirations?
Yes. I've gotten a lot of offers and I just haven't really found anything that I'm really happy with yet. I'm taking it slow since I do have a modeling career. I don't have to rush out and do the next thing that I'm offered.
Are you taking any acting lessons?
No. Not now.
Any interest in singing now that you're going out with Seal?
I would love to play a singer, not because I'm going out with him, but I've always had a passion to play a singer in a movie. But, no. I'll leave the singing to Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and all of them.
