'Damsels In Distress' Star Analeigh Tipton Is 'Going To Be Huge,' Predicts Tyra Banks
MTV News - almost 5 years
If you were able to tear your eyes away from "Crazy, Stupid, Love"'s Abs That Shall Not Be Named, you may have recognized a familiar reality T.V. face among the film's big-named leads Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell and Julianne Moore. Namely, "America's Next Top Model" cycle 11 contestant Analeigh Tipton, who played a lovesick babysitter in the romantic comedy. Analeigh isn't the first Top Model to make the jump to acting (remember CariDee English's cameo on "One Tree Hill"?), but she may be the strutter with the most star potential. The beauty is back in theaters this weekend with "Damsels in Distress," about three college girls who set out to change the mores at their college.
Analeigh's growing fame is no surprise to "ANTM" creator and judge Tyra Banks, who noticed the model's acting chops years ago.
"She was third runner-up, I think. When the judges said it was time for her to go home, I told her she had an acting gift," Tyra told MTV News last year.
