Paulina Porizkova gets real about 'not using filters': 'Love this perspective'
Paulina Porizkova isn't afraid to show her age.
On Thursday, the supermodel took to Instagram to share a video from "Red Table Talk," where she sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
The talk was for the promotion of Porizkova's new book, "No Filter: The Good, The Bad and the Beautiful," an essay collection that centres on beauty, aging and her life in the spotlight.
While the talk touched on her career and the death of her ex-husband, Hall of Fame rocker Ric Ocasek, Porizkova focused on the use of filters in social media, which she is firmly against.
"I make a point of not using filters ever, because that's kind of my thing. I'm trying to represent a woman my age, without filters," she revealed.
The 57-year-old went on to explain how she's hoping to inspire other aging women to embrace their wrinkles.
"I am so delighted when I see a woman my age that looks like I do. Like, 'Oh, look, you have the same wrinkles or weird wobbly bits here,' and I find it beautiful on them," she said. "So I'm hoping to do for other women what some of those women do for me."
Later in the conversation, Pinkett Smith brought up Botox and how Porizkova hasn't used injectables to make herself look younger.
When asked how she got comfortable with her wrinkles and not using anti-aging supplements or procedures, Porizkova shared that it's not an easy road.
"I am not comfortable with it. I'm still struggling with it on a daily basis," she said.
In the comments, fans thanked the supermodel for her honesty and dubbed her a "role model."
"Yes, absolutely love this perspective and thanks for being a role model," commented a follower.
"This is so beautiful to hear. I struggle with looking older also, so thank you," shared someone else.
"The very first step of accepting your natural looks is to accept your own worth regardless of how you look," wrote a fan.
"The best thing about that clip is your response about not being comfortable with it — acceptance is fluid and I think that's important to express," added another.
In a recent interview for the Summit on Reframing Aging, the mother-of-two explained that women started turning to her for support and advice on how to navigate the world as they aged.
"There were other women who felt like me and they came to me. We started building a community of women who felt likewise. I'm not ready to be dismissed, and I'm looking to you to lead me. And I thought, 'Me lead anybody anywhere? I don't know where I'm going!'" the model joked.
At the end of the interview, Porizkova said that as everyone ages, it's not fair to "end up nowhere" after a life filled with memories, family and love.
"I can say yes, it's for all of us, all of us who have raised children, had families, were nurturing and unselfish just the way a mother is supposed to be," she concluded. "To care of our homes, to care of our husbands, and then to end up no where."
