Paulina Porizkova Says She’s Invisible To Men Now That She’s 56
Here’s some bleak news. Supermodel Paulina Porizkova is now completely invisible to men now that she’s in her fifties. In a new interview with The Times, 56-year-old Paulina explains that she’ll gussy herself up and try to flirt with dudes at parties, but they’ll walk away from her “mid-sentence” to hit on ladies 20 years her junior. Ugh! Poor Paulina has now entered a universe many of us have looong been familiar with: the reality in which certain men look through us because they don’t consider us fuckable. As a supermodel, it must be a terrible shock. Quick, somebody get this quinquagenarian a thermal blanket!
“I am now completely invisible,” Porizkova told the publication. “I walk into a party, I try to flirt with guys and they will just walk away from me mid-sentence to pursue someone 20 years younger. I’m very single, I’m dressed up, I’ve made an effort — nothing.”
Pauline calls it a “slow fade.” She adds that her late husband, Ric Ocasek, who passed at age 75 in 2019 (and cut her out of his will), also lost interest in her as she got older:
“Like the boiled frog, you don’t know until (you’re gone). It was around the same time my marriage fell apart: my husband was no longer interested in me and, as I started looking around, I realised I was invisible to the population at large. It made me feel really terrible about myself,” she said.
Since Ric died, Paulina has been talking and writing about her experiences getting older, both good and bad. The good? Sex gets better with age. The bad? She is now reviled for the very thing that made her popular in her youth: not wearing clothes. But Paulina doesn’t care what the haters think. She posed titties-out for the cover of Vogue CZ last April, and went naked for the Times too:
Paulina has also been posting a ton of shit on her Instagram about beauty standards and aging. Last week she posted about how she doesn’t have any Botox or fillers, but that her commenters keep calling bullshit:
I think Paulina looks great. But you know what would look even better? If she injected 150ccs of collagen into her cheeks, pumped up her lips, froze her forehead, and got her eyes stapled open. They call it “The Madonna,” and once you get it, nobody, not even the most sexist and shallow of straight men, will be able to tear their eyes away from your, erm… “unique” visage. #InvisibleNoMore
