Paulina Porizkova was one of the most beautiful women on the planet during her time in the spotlight. However, the 57-year-old model recently posted a throwback photo of herself in a bikini alongside an image of herself nowadays. An internet troll attacked Paulina Porizkova, calling her “old and ugly,” but she knew exactly how to respond to the hater to let everyone know she loved her body and looked however others may hate it online from trolls.
The throwback picture featured the supermodel posing in a string bikini. She posted the photo with the message that women become “more beautiful with age,” and her objective was to share it as a method for combating “ageist shaming” on the internet in 2022.
Last year, Porizkova was in Costa Rica in Central America when her photo with a sexy pose was taken. She’s got her hair blowing in the wind and is laughing in the middle of the picture. On the side of the image, she responded to a troll who claimed that her looks had “fell from a great height.”
“You must be in so much pain to keep posting bikini pictures at your age,” wrote a troll to the blonde supermodel. “I’ve always thought that getting old and ugly is hardest on the pretty people. The fall from grace is so much farther when you were beautiful.”
The troll added, “Ugly people were always ugly so getting old and ugly isn’t a change. In summary, I feel your pain. I pray you can come to terms with your mortality. We all get old and ugly… You just had to fall from a greater height than the rest of us. Tears times infinity!”
Despite how the individual felt, the supermodel refused to let the detractor put her down “a woman of fifty-seven is ‘too old to pose in a bikini no matter what she looks like. Because ‘old’ is ‘ugly.’”
She continued, “I get comments like these every time I post a photo of my body. This is the ageist shaming that sets my teeth on edge. Older men are distinguished. Older women are ugly.”
Porizkova was a judge for America’s Next Top Model earlier this year. She offered more comments about her troll and how individuals who believe that “people who believe prettiness equals beauty do not understand beauty.”
“We get more beautiful with age. We have earned our beauty, we understand what it is, and we can see it so much better. There is no such thing as ugly and old. Only shortsighted and ignorant,” she continued. “I’m not posting this because I feel bad and need sympathy- quite on the contrary! I’m posting this because this is a pervasive sentiment that needs to be done away with. So we can be proud of aging, as we deserve to be!”
