She continued, "You think, hold on a second, I am actually a far more interesting person than I've ever been and this is where you don't want to see me anymore? Because I've aged out of being physically appealing to you." (Source: people.com)

Added the Vogue cover model: "An older woman is allowed wisdom, humor, patience – but not sensuality. Not sexiness. This is a major societal taboo which is precisely why I post what I post." (Source: www.foxnews.com)

"When she got into her position she really started expanding the notion in Sports Illustrated -- that's where people go to see beautiful young women -- and she really started expanding the idea that it's not just models size 2 to 4 that are pretty, but hey, they could be size 10 to 20," she added.

CAR

Paulina Porizkova was born April 9, 1965, in Prostejov, Czechoslovakia. Paulina and her younger brother were left in the care of their grandmother, after their parents fled from their country. The Porizkova family was reunited after 7 years, albeit not for long, as Paulina's parents got divorced. Since Paulina's mother was busy supporting her children and funding her own medical school education, a 10-year-old Paulina was forced to tend to herself and her brother. Paulina's life was on the brink of change thanks to a chance encounter with an Elite modeling scout, who spotted her on the street while she was living in Sweden with her family for several years. The offer was extremely tempting for a teenage Paulina who was eager to get out of Sweden and support herself. Her modeling career flew into high gear after she appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in 1984, and followed up this appearance with a second cover in the 1985 issue of the coveted magazine. During her career, she has appeared in numerous magazines, including Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, US and Self, and she did a topless shot in GQ. Besides her 6-million/year contract for Estée Lauder (as Elizabeth Hurley's predecessor), Paulina has appeared in advertisements for Alma, Anne Klein Footwear, Capezio Bags, Episode, Escada, Giorgio Beverly Hills Red fragrance, Macy's, Maybelline, and Mikimoto. Paulina Porizkova had calendars in 1988 and 1989. Although she had an illustrious career, Paulina was never one to fall into the glamour associated with being a model. Despite the perks that modeling provided, she wasn't proud or happy about her job, mostly because of the connotations that are associated with modeling, so she sought other outlets in which she could express herself more creatively. With that, after appearing in a documentary about modeling called Portfolio, Paulina attempted to pursue an acting career. She was cast in Covergirl in 1984 and Anna in 1987, but it was in 1989 that she would land her biggest, and most known role to date, co-starring with Tom Selleck (hot off the trails of his Three Men and a Baby success), in the film Her Alibi. Presently semi-retired as a model, Paulina does have a full-time career as wife of The Cars' lead singer and guitarist, Ric Ocasek; mother of their two sons, Jonathan Raven and Oliver Orion; as well as stepmother to Ocasek's children from a previous marriage. She has appeared in films since the 1980's, with roles in Arizona Dream, Wedding Bell Blues, Long Time Since, Thursday, The Intern, and Partners in Crime. She turned down the role of the Bond girl in 1995's GoldenEye to spend more time with her young children. Still searching for other film roles that will allow her to develop more as an actress, Paulina delved into the publishing industry by writing a children's book, and shares her take on the fashion industry in her forthcoming novel, A Model Summer.
