There are some celebrity birthdays that seem to hit society like a ton of sand-through-the-hourglass bricks, and Tyra Banks turning 50 next week seems to be one of them.

“I do think one secret is extra weight, because I’ve not been too skinny,” the supermodel told the DailyMail ahead of her new decade when asked to share her secret to youth.

“I think if you’re really skinny, it will age your face,” she said. “So I think a bit of juice, as it keeps the face nice and juicy naturally. I haven’t had injections.”

Banks was also quick to note that she’s not anti-surgery, and admitted to having a rhinoplasty early in her career: “The only thing I did was my nose, and that was many years ago. I’m not anti [injections]—maybe one day I will, but I haven’t done it yet.”

Also part of her overall aging philosophy: Looking up to fellow A-listers who are in the decade.

“When I was younger, 50 was old right? It was like a grandma age or something. Now, I look at Jennifer Lopez, I look at Halle Berry, I look at Jennifer Aniston, and I’m like, ‘What the hell is 50?'”
