Paulina Porizkova (55) was one of the world’s most famous supermodels in the 80s and 90s, but not everyone likes that she shows up now.

The Czech-Swedish model veteran frequently shares photos on Instagram, where she has 334,000 followers.

But even though the 55-year-old was a popular attraction for Sports Illustrated in her time, she often gets criticized when she now chooses to post lightly dressed photos. Nor do close-ups without make-up fall into good soil with everyone.

On Good Friday, Porizkova made her clear statement on The Tamron Hall Show.

– In my 20s, I was hailed because I lined up in underwear. I got a lot of money for it, and everyone loved me, she explains.

She believes that she still looks “pretty good” in underwear.

– But I am attacked with ugly comments, of course not from everyone, but yes – it is quite a large dose of negative.

Porizkova believes that the change in people’s attitudes happens when a woman turns 40. Then suddenly there are a number of unwritten rules to comply with, she believes.

– I guess you do not look fertile anymore, and that it is a menopausal thing. And maybe it has to do with the fact that when you suddenly look like someone’s mom, then it’s not allowed to be sexy anymore. You are allowed to be beautiful, pretty, present, shocking and surprising. But not sexy.

The model also posted a post after the interview was sent on Friday, where she points out that women are both criticized if they look as old as they are, but also if they choose to fix their appearance surgically.

«Jane Fonda, I am has been absolutely honest about her way of coping with age, will be invited to a talk show to talk about a new movie, but all she is asked about is her facelifts.»

The 55-year-old often writes about this topic together with his pictures. And the majority of those who comment write praiseworthy messages. Many thanks.

During a nude photo in February, Porizkova joked – with a serious undertone – that 30 years ago she was encouraged to wear as little as possible, but that after the age of 40 she probably would not get any attention other than a fine if she walked naked round.

«And after 50 it gets uglyPorizkova explained, hearing things like “Get dressed, Grandma!”, “Are you hungry for attention?”, “A little desperate, right?” and «You are pathetic».

Porizkova, former host of the American “Top Model”, does not understand why young women get applause for being sexy, while mature women get provoked.

At the same time, she believes in knowing the cause.

«Because of men. Men are biologically programmed to spread their semen in fertile containers that advertise their potency at a young age», Wrote the model, who claims she consistently steers away from Botox and surgery.
