Tyra Banks says her America's Next Top Model persona is far removed from who she really is.

Featured on Larry King's CNN special Dinner With the Kings, the supermodel said: "When I'm sitting there and have all this makeup on and I'm like, 'Your picture is not fierce,' that is a character. In real life I'm passive aggressive, I'm anti-confrontational, I'm even in coaching to learn how to be confrontational."

Other celebs who joined Banks at the dinner, which aired on CNN Sunday were Conan O'Brien, Seth MacFarlane, Shaquille O'Neal, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Quincy Jones and Russell Brand.
