Paulina Porizkova, 55, posted a nude photo of herself after fellow model Elizabeth Hurley, 55, received backlash for her own risqué photoshoot last month.
“Today, on a serious note, thoughts inspired by the brouhaha around a sexy photo of @elizabethhurley1 …,” Porizkova wrote on Tuesday alongside a nude bedroom pic. “When I was in my twenties and thirties, the less I wore – the more popular I was. In my forties, I could walk around practically naked and illicit nothing more than a ticket for public indecency.”
She continued, “At fifty, I am reviled for it. ‘Put on your clothes, grandma. Hungry for attention, are you? A little desperate here? You’re pathetic.’”
Hurley, who often posts sultry bikini pics, caused a stir recently after posing in a snowy setting wearing nothing but a string bikini bottom and an open furry coat.
While many fans praised the “Austin Powers” star, trolls also went after her for showing so much skin.
But Porizkova questioned why nudity and “sexiness” was applauded for younger women and often “reviled” for women who were more mature. “Because of men,” she stated. “Men are biologically programmed to spread their seed, inserting themselves into fertile containers which advertise their viability through youth.”
She concluded her message by saying, “The only thing that is pathetic here is allowing others to set your priorities.”
Hurley responded to Porizkova’s post, writing, “You are one of the most beautiful women to ever inhabit this planet- and I know this for sure because I studied you in immense detail when I joined the @esteelaudercompanies after you!”
She added, “You remain as ravishing as ever.”
Other celebs to applaud Porizkova’s post included Helena Christensen and Selma Blair.
