Tyra Banks is revealing she and Hillary Clinton are more alike than you think!

In a new interview with The New York Times, the America's Next Top Model host was asked about meeting the presidential hopeful years ago when Clinton was on Banks' talk show. "I actually like Hillary personally. She was just so free-flowing," the 41-year-old supermodel gushed.

In fact, Banks and Clinton once bonded over a body insecurity they both share. "Oh, my God, she was so relaxed and so cool," Banks said. "We talked about cellulite and she was like, ‘Yeah, I've got cellulite, and I look in the mirror, and I don't have any clothes on, and I don't like everything I see.' It was that kind of conversation."


When asked if Hillary is a victim of sexism in the media, Banks cracked, "Oh, come on. We know that. You're just getting me to say it so you can type it up."

Banks was also asked about another famous face. "One striking element of the accusations surrounding Bill Cosby is that he is said to have told a modeling agency owner that he was looking for broke, out-of-town models, basically targeting the most vulnerable people he could find. Have you ever heard of anyone ever doing anything like that?" write Ana Marie Cox asked.

"I can't comment on him specifically, but no, I haven't heard of people doing that," Banks said. "Still, there's always people who want to date models and be attached to models. When I was first in New York, I lived in a models' apartment, and one day I answered the phone, and these guys were like, ‘Hey, wanna go out, you wanna party?' And I was like, ‘Who is this?' It turned out these guys had the number to the apartment, and they would just call models to go party."
