You may recognize Lio Tipton, previously known as Analeigh Tipton, from their roles in “Manhattan Love Story,” “Warm Bodies,” or “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” in which they starred alongside Steve Carell. Thanks to their success on Cycle 11 of the “America’s Next Top Model,” Tipton has been able to build their acting career and release an album and several singles, all contributing to their estimated $1.5 million net worth (via Celebrity Net Worth).
Although Tipton gained recognition from modeling on the show, they had always dreamed of pursuing acting rather than walking runways. In a 2012 interview with Complex, Tipton explained, “Modeling is like … If somebody offers you a free trip to Hawaii, you kind of take it. Modeling was my free trip to Hawaii. It was an experience that sounded like fun for a 19-year-old, and it was. It was a blast.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, you can expect to see Tipton in more on-screen roles in the future, including “The Long Home” with Josh Hutcherson, Courtney Love, and Tim Blake Nelson.
