She also has a bone to pick with Victoria Secrets
Don't be shy, be a star! Tyra Banks appeared on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, Aug. 5, where she dished whether former Disney darling Lindsay Lohan will join her in the upcoming Life-Size movie sequel. After a fan had asked the famed supermodel, 40, about the troubled 28-year-old actress' possible role in the film, Banks explained to Cohen: "So, Life-Size was a movie I did with Lindsay many years ago, when she was 11 years old."
In the made-for-TV movie, which was released in 2000, Banks starred as a Barbie doll accidentally brought to life by a grieving tween named Casey Stuart (Lohan), who had recently lost her mother. Hijinks, hilarity, and more ensued in the cult classic, making it one of the most endearing and memorable films Lohan made as a child star, along with The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday. "We're doing Life-Size 2," Banks went on. "This time I'm executive producing it and we're in the process of writing it."
As for whether Casey will return? "Right now, we haven't spoken to Lindsay," Banks said. "But you never know!" She then did an impression of how Lohan's character would react today: "She'd be like, 'Hey Eve doll, you used to be my Barbie and I'm over you!' She's a woman now!"
In January, Banks confirmed the highly anticipated sequel (as first hinted by another former child star, Miley Cyrus, via Twitter!) was in the works. "I don't think it'll be out until probably 2015," she told Digital Spy, "but it will be back… better than ever." The America's Next Top Model host added that the follow-up will be "very modern." Banks also addressed other hot button issues on WWHL, including whether she plans to participate in a future Victoria's Secret reunion with Heidi Klum and Gisele Bundchen. "I don't know, I don't know if I would," Banks said of her equally-successful counterparts. "Whenever I see them, I feel like we have a connection. We're like the OG original Angels. That was invented on us reports US Weekly."
While Banks still has a strong bond with her fellow former Angels, there was one person she was not too pleased with at the company. "The president of Victoria's Secret promised me a lifetime supply of Victoria's Secret products, even after I left the company," she joked. "But, once I left, he only let me have it for a year. So I have a bone to pick."
