There are some people who the camera just loves. Perhaps that's why many models make the leap to acting.
Tyra Banks first became famous as a model, appearing twice on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and working as one of Victoria's Secret's original "Angels." She began her acting career with appearances on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and jumped into movies with 1994's "Higher Learning." Her other acting credits include "Love & Basketball," "Coyote Ugly" (pictured) and "Halloween: Resurrection."
