Tyra Banks wants Julia Roberts to appear on her showMay 6th, 2009 - 11:19 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 6 (IANS) American TV host Tyra Banks has issued a public plea to Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts because she’s “obsessed” about landing the movie star as a guest on her talk show “The Tyra Banks Show”.
Emmy-award winning Banks has attracted a host of A-listers since launching her show in 2005, but has yet to chat up the “Pretty Woman” star on air and for that she even took a break from her interview with TV chef Rachael Ray Tuesday to plead Roberts for an appearance, reports contactmusic.com.
“I would love Julia Roberts to come on the talk show. I’m obsessed…She’s just real and from Savannah, Georgia and super famous and still normal and I like that,” she said turning to the camera.
Banks also admitted that she gave up her trademark supermodel looks to appear more like the glamorous actress.
“Julia, I love you so much and I wish I could smile like you…I even had a red weave (fake hair) trying to look like her one time,” she confessed.
