"Natural beauty is unfair," Banks told the magazine. "I get really uncomfortable when women who are these natural beauties judge anybody who does anything to themselves."
"I had bones in my nose that were itching and growing," she said of having a rhinoplasty. "I could breathe fine, but I added cosmetic surgery. I admit it! Fake hair, and I did my nose. I feel I have a responsibility to tell the truth."
Banks shared similar sentiments about plastic surgery in a previous interview with Yahoo! Singapore.
"I hate when models say, 'Oh, plastic surgery is just a wrong thing,'" the star said. "What are you talking about?"
"You won the genetic lottery... You look like this specimen that's making people everywhere feel insecure and you're going to ridicule someone for getting plastic surgery?" she explained.
Banks discusses her nose job and more in her memoir, "Perfect is Boring," which debuts April 3.
