Tyra Banks may be leaving "America's Got Talent" in order to fully concentrate on her directing and producing skills.


The host, which has been making NBC's talent show her home, said in an interview that she had "a really nice run with 'America's Got Talent.'"

The story was reported by Page Six, but a full statement is yet to be released by the former host of "The Tyra Banks Show" and "America's Next Top Model."

The 45-year-old will be working on her "Freeform" movie sequel, "Life Size-2: A Christmas Eve," after the success of the original, which became a cult classic.

An anonymous source claimed that Banks has been bombarded with producing and acting requests and that she wished to pursue those paths.

Although Banks had a lot of fun on "America's Got Talent," the former top model seems to be done with standing in the background and wants to get right back on the horse.

Rumors about a big 2019 project have also been popping up, especially ever since Banks commented that she wanted to do a second "Coyote Ugly" with Piper Perabo.

For that, the 45-year-old revealed that she would first have to either get the rights to the movie from Jerry Bruckheimer or work with him on the project.

But aside from a busy career, Banks still has her 2-year-old son, York, to look after. She recently said that her son believes every day is Christmas.

This led Kelly Ripa to say that that would make a great theme for her next movie, which would focus on a world where every day would be Christmas day.
