Tyra Banks doesn’t care how Janet Jackson lost all that weight. The former supermodel – and current talk show host – doesn’t want women to feel pressure about their body anymore.

The beauty plans to ask editors not to digitally enhance her appearance when she appears on magazine covers in the future.

Her reasoning? The message being sent out to young girls when they see flawless women in magazines is misguided, the 32-year old, former Sports Illustrated cover gal says; and she wants the world to see her without the benefit of computer technology.

A member of the star’s company, Bankable Productions, said:

“Modeling is an unreal business, but Tyra wants to make it more real. She always tried to get heavier women to take part in America’s Next Top Model – although the industry continues to reject them and the few that get through are magically transformed into waifs by magazines.”
