Tyra Banks recalls Obama interview as the best ever

Los Angeles: She has interviewed a number of people ranging from Beyonce Knowles to Miley Cyrus on her show, but model turned TV personality Tyra Banks has named the experience with US President Barack Obama as the most thrilling.

As the 36-year-old star wrapped up her `Tyra Banks Show` on Friday, she recalled her interview with the then-Senator Obama as the best one she ever had in the five years of her show, reported People magazine online.

"I was so nervous, sick to my stomach and my hands were shaking. I asked him to look into the crystal ball and said, `What do you see in your future, Senator?`

"And without hesitation he replied, `The White House.` That clip ran on CNN and every national morning show. I`ll never forget being a part of political history," said Banks.

If the episode with Obama was the best, second in line would be the one with `Twilight` star Robert Pattinson.

“I even got bitten on the neck by Twilight`s sexiest vampire, Robert Pattinson. I don`t think I`ve ever felt so envied," said Banks.

But the supermodel-turned-mogul, is hardly slowing down with the end of the talk show. With her company, Bankable Enterprises, Banks plans to branch out into film production.

She also plans to publish a series of novels, and cycle 15 of her reality staple America`s Next Top Model will feature a new partnership with Italian Vogue.

Looking back on her talk show, Banks says it was "always about my life`s mission of expanding the definition of beauty. I wanted everyone to understand that life is about accepting and loving yourself, flaws and all."
