Paulina Porizkova simply no regrets for enjoying her body. The supermodel, 57, took to Twitter with another cheeky post about the layoffs ageist haters and trolls. In the photo she posted September 9, Paulina looks away from the camera while wearing a printed bikini in a relaxed pose. She stood, leaning against a pole on the summer porch while looking up at the blue sky. “Troll bait: a 57-year-old woman in bikini,” she captioned the intriguing photo. “Who doesn’t feel #oldandugly Sorry/no sorry troll! ”

Some of the model’s 110k followers took to the comments section to react. One follower wrote: “Paulina has every right to post pictures that make her feel comfortable. “He goes @paulinaporizkov, and do what makes you happy. “Another commented, “You are amazing and always are,” along with an image of an iconic poster of Paulina in a black one-piece. “My BF in 1989 had this poster on his wall and I remember wondering how a woman could be so beautiful.”
She also posted a heartbreaking photo on her Instagram account, where she shared a much longer sentiment. “Let’s talk a little bit about celebrity narcissism – I’m as guilty as anyone,” she admitted in the post. “Are narcissists inherently drawn to a life in the limelight – or is it the limelight that creates them? Speaking from experience: if you have any inclination towards it, the spotlight will not only work for you but can support it like no other. The post goes on to make a compelling point about what she hopes to achieve with the provocative image.
But not all reactions were positive, and as to prove Paulina’s point, some of the comments were volatile. However, the sublime beauty did not seem to be shaken. Earlier this spring, she took to Instagram to express similar sentiments and call out haters. “This is a good follower comment – echoing some others,” she captioned another April 29 bikini post. “A 57-year-old woman is too ‘old’ to pose in a bikini – no matter what she looks like. Because ‘Old’ is ‘Ugly’. I get comments like this every time I post a picture of my body. This is the epochal shaming that gives me a headache. Older men are discriminating, older women are evil.”
She completed the post by pointing out, “To perceive beauty, you must be able to SEE. This is why I believe we become more beautiful with age. We’ve got our beauty, we understand what it is, and we can see it so much better. There is no such thing as ugly and old. Just short-sighted and ignorant.”
