Paulina Porizkova Making News Again....

This time talking about her unhappy marriage to late Ric Ocasek

Don't know why it is so, but Eastern European women (and good number of men) just hit the wall early and hard.

Paulina Porizkova in her day was stunningly gorgeous. Now she looks like someone's well used grandmother.

Major love for her since she gave one of the greatest film performances ever from a model. Wish shed done more but motherhood beckoned (and she hated her next costar)

Sadly, ANNA is pretty much a forgotten film despite the amazing performances of Sally Kirkland and Paulina. I’m glad I bought the dvd when it was first released but it deserves a Criterion edition.

by Anonymousreply 7November 5, 2021 4:12 AM

Agreed. I vote for Criterion too, quick before Sally leave s us. Worst thing is the DVD -- but not the VHS so must be intentional -- has no subtitles so newbies can't understand any of the Czech and there's a lot of it.

Anna's "It hurts" bit hit close to home at the time. But Paulina's arc from rotten toothed immigrant to semi Eve Harrington was impressive too.

She had a very weird childhood

This is from Wikipedia

Born near Prostějov, Czechoslovakia to Anna Pořízková and Jiří Pořízka, Porizkova was three years old when her anti-Soviet dissident parents fled Czechoslovakia to Lund, Sweden, to escape the 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion. She was left in the care of her grandmother. Czechoslovak authorities would not allow her parents to reclaim her, and the ensuing battle was widely publicized in the Swedish press, making Porizkova a cause célèbre.

After a failed rescue attempt when Porizkova was seven, in which her pregnant mother returned to Czechoslovakia and was shortly detained by the national police and then placed under house arrest, international political pressure led by Olof Palme caused the communist government to allow the Pořízek family to be reunited after seven years. Porizkova acquired Swedish citizenship.[6] The reunion was soon ended when Porizkova's father left the family, her parents filed for divorce, and her father refused to pay child support for Paulina and her younger brother. Porizkova and her father have been estranged since her youth. Her mother, a midwife, remarried at least twice and as of 2010 was reported to be serving in the Peace Corps in Uganda

He was extremely unattractive: not only physically but sounds like internally as well. Vindictive in his will....if this exemplified what he was like to live with: how repulsive.

Looks as though we are seeing Paulina play out much publicly.

Have empathy for what she has experienced. Hope she can work through some obvious issues.

She still looks great, though, and is to be admired for not taking on the plasticine effect that so many in the public eye chose to adopt.

I do feel bad for her. It's hard to let go when you can't confront the person who hurt you and get some closure if that's what you need to do.

She's just stuck in the past, reliving the hurt, over and over again.

She looks so sad and haunted. After the way he treated her, she's only looking for validation of her worth and honestly, I can understand why.

I sincerely wish her well and hope that she can heal. And if it helps her to air the dirty laundry, then so be it.

Alluring to who exactly? Those older women might be an "inspiration" to other women and admired by gay men but I guarantee you straight men look right past them. Which is fine if you're a woman who doesn't want attention like that. Clearly Paulina does though.

Those are a small minority.

You ask any female or even an older trans passing as one about how invisible older women become.

Woman who their whole lives once couldn't make it walking down a street without catcalls, eye contact and other filtration soon find themselves rarely bothered.

Miss is replaced by "Ma'am" or "Dear" and so it goes..

What it all boils down to is males of any age no longer finding said older female sexually attractive. Once that bit sinks in it is one crazy day.

This is a better picture of Ms. Porizkova, she's still got a little bit left, but still off the highs of her supermodel days.

Middle age is a tough time for females, especially those who once were the hottest things in shoe leather.

Well, it’s not just women, men absolutely notice that men/women aren’t looking at them any more as they age. It’s like that for everyone and how you deal with it, shows what you’re made of. I think her attitude is off putting and she doesn’t seem to be able to offer much more than how to work out and put on makeup.

by Anonymousreply 37November 6, 2021 8:31 PM

R35 head on she's actually quite pretty, old or not. Beauty still trumps age but she's sliding into the abyss, as it were. And I'm sorry but the average Eastern European woman does not look that good at that age, not even close. Nothing wrong with that, someone has to be plain for others to be gorgeous and it's not an attack on anyone's character to be plain.

That might be true, but it really does depend upon the man.

DL has many posts of men >40 or even >50 who are still hot as fuck.

With females large part of their aging process is tied to their biology.

When young and flush with youth a firm attractive female holds promise of fecundity. That is what men respond to on some level regardless if they are conscious of fact. It simply is how nature hard wired human males, at least straight ones anyway.

If you examine various products aimed at middle aged and older females you see same claims over and over. It's all about "restoring youthful radiance" and "reversing signs of aging...".

Don't know about USA but in France there is an entire arsenal of such products with many aimed at particular parts of a woman's body. There are creams, lotions, potions, etc.. for face, neck, bosom, hands, thighs, derrière, eyes, lower legs (including varicose veins); some French women have enough products in their boudoir to create one or maybe two entire new females.

R34, what you said is probably a real shocker for women renowned for their looks. I've always liked Heather Locklear, but believe part of her spin-out happened after she stopped being the hot young babe. It's gotta be a huge turning point even for well-rounded, mentally healthy people. For those with underlying mental problems or deep insecurities, the change in the way others treat them can be devastating.

It's fine for her to work on herself, understanding her marriage, her delayed emotional/intellectual development, aging, menopause, whatever. Her children don't have to be intimately involved in that and it would be a kindness to them to keep her personal exploration within the confines of therapy sessions.

It would also be a kindness to the rest of us. Oversharing is not a good look.

If PP isn't in therapy, she should be, and should have started ages ago. There is likely more going on here than she's letting on, or maybe one has missed a few things.

Ric Ocasek basically preyed upon, then used Paulina Porizkova for her (then) youth, beauty and IIRC money. Why she married the bastard world may never know, but she should have bolted long before finally doing so, and got what was hers then.

But no, she waited, then like a fool went back to nurse Ric Ocasek through what turned out to be his last bit of time on earth. And look what that got her....

Methinks PP has many issues she's never worked through that made her ripe for that sort of abusive relationship and marriage.

Bog ugly Ric Ocasek got his rocks off and substantial bragging rights by nailing a (then) top supermodel. That was him sorted, and obviously all that mattered.

What's left of PP is an emotionally fragile woman who is basically almost an empty shell. People are sympathetic about bad relationships up to a point, then it's "oh shut up about it...."

If PP thinks taking up permanent residence in Pity Me Pines Hotel is going to win her accolades and or all sorts of offers (including romance) , she'd better think on. Give it a year or so and no one will want to hear her (by then) oft repeated sad tale of woe and misery. It will be "if she calls again tell her I'm out...".

by Anonymousreply 51November 7, 2021 12:23 AM

Part of what is making PP seem drab in these later photos is her hair color. She was a natural brunette and her blue yes and dark hair were pretty together. She'd look better with darker hair, maybe shoulder length and wavy. She still has her lovely cheekbones and that counts for a lot.

He always cheated on his kids moms, he hit his jackpot when he made a video with a young stunning model in it who had daddy issues (Paulina). He has 3 ex wives and 6 kids , 2 from each. He was a shit parent to 4 of them. Paulina clearly has craved a stable family and dad hence her attachment to that elder freak. She was unhappy but it’s her own doing. She was a top model for fucks sake, find a therapist and work on your issues then date around while you’re in the best years of your life and career. She looks amazing for her age and isn’t Madonna , having her saggy fake tits and huge bought ass hanging out with a child for a boyfriend. Paulina needs to get herself into a different mindset.

Jesus, the pics r61 posted, ugh. She looks very attractive in them until you see she's sitting with her legs open and lingerie exposed. Why? Yes, we get it, you're trying to suggest women are still sexy and 'fuckable' at that age, but do you need to have your snatch (sort of) exposed to convey that? It shows that you've learned nothing about what is truly attractive and sexy about anyone, male or female, by that stage in life, and that is largely why you are not considered appealing, not because you have some wrinkles and grey hair. She didn't have to learn to be a whole person because she coasted on her looks her entire life. It's not too late though, she can learn that now, if she is smart enough.

I don’t really expect much insight from models. Paulina was paid an inordinate amount of money for something completely out of her control— she had a beautiful symmetrical face and a tall lean body. Neither of these is an achievement, and neither turns out to be very useful in helping her navigate the wilderness of aging. I would hope that she was at least smart enough to educate herself along the way with all the resources at her disposal and developed into a decent human being in addition to being something nice to look at.

why does this woman refuse to go away?

by Anonymousreply 75November 8, 2021 6:00 AM

PP wants the world to bear witness to her suffering, and thus validate her feelings.

We've all seen this act before, it is one that goes back ages. If you're lucky experience has only been of some random person you don't know. OtOH those unlucky enough to be sucked into this hot mess via someone they know (family member, friend, co-worker....) know what it's like.

Again at some point you just want to take a croquet mallet and bash them about the head. This or scream "shut the fuck up about it already...".

One tries to be supportive and kind, but quite honestly after several months no one wants to hear it any longer. You've been dumped, done wrong, or whatever. You're not the first nor last, so get the fuck over it.

There are scores of middle aged fraus in NYC alone going through same thing who would kill for sort of coverage PP is getting. They weren't supermodels, married rock stars, maybe aren't particularly wealthy, so one one wants to know.

Even strongest swimmers have been taken down by someone who is drowning. Thus you want to give people like this a very wide berth. If you validate their misery by your support you'll be taken down with the tide as well.

Beautiful people can have horrible lives. Never judge a person merely by their outward appearance.

Karen Mulder claimed she was raped and or abused by a long list of men including her father, Prince Albert of Monaco, and Gérald Marie (then head of Elite modeling agency) among others. M. Marie was caught on recorded video offering an underage model money for sex, but that's another scandal.

I guess being an ugly duckling in my youth had it's perks because I'm able to readjust to being overlooked after many years of being looked over. It was nice while it lasted but who the fuck wants to worry "am I the prettiest girl in the room?" everywhere they go. There's so much more to life than worrying if a guy thinks you're hot enough to fuck

Her face looks fine . But she would be wise to stop doing things like the open leg poses for the New York Times. Posing in a playboy pose for NYT would be tacky at 25. Odd that her and Ocasek didn't divorce years earlier.

I wish Paulina had insisted on being listened to and being considered an equal partner and human worth listening to, throughout her marriage. It's disgusting to me that an ugly inside and out, albeit talented musician like Ocasek treated her like that. He would NEVER had stood a chance on his looks and talent with her if he wasn't also rich and famous. Why treat her like dirt? She stood by him checking on him even after their separation. He seemed like he was truly a monster.

I don't get all the public airing of laundry and lingerie but hey, if she needs to do this to empower herself, why not. I hope she finds a new love and gets somewhat of a career back. She's still gorgeous. He stopped thinking SHE was attractive? Get real, ghost of Ric.

Whatever respect I had for her is out the window. Does she know how many women grew their dyed hair out during the pandemic and didn't expect a round of applause? Also, she could shave her head, and apart from a one-day story, no one would care. That's how insignificant she is to the scheme of things.

I think her attempt to be the model was a brain is failing.

The problem, as many have noted, is the lack of dignity combined with desperation. She's essentially putting herself out there the same way a trafficked sex worker would for online sex ads, yet she's supposed to be an intelligent woman who had all the advantages in life--wealth, adoration, fame, winning the genetic lottery, etc. And yet, she has come to this. She's not thinking right.

Ric was so unbelievably ugly and from what she is saying, a total dickhead, too. I don’t understand why she married him. Her sons are funny looking, too. Catherine Deneuve who was much more beautiful than Porizkova said when asked about aging, “I don’t like it but it is not a problem.”

I think Paulina is emotionally and intellectually stunted.

I look at Brigitte Bardot, who eschewed any plastic surgery.. just going on with the natural aging process. No nips, tucks or tweaks... She was stunning back in the day, very famous as a sex symbol and beautiful... and now shows every bit of her age. She seems to have taken a mature (no pun intended) attitude towards aging. I think that's pretty rare with great beauties of the past.

If Paulina wants to be a spokesperson for aging women everywhere, she needs to stop posting pictures of herself on a permanent vacation at all these exotic and fabulous resorts soaking up the sun and frolicking poolside.

Most women her age are grey and frumpy because they can't afford monthly hair stylists and are sitting at home watching TV with their fat husbands while listening to him fart all night.

French women in general tend to view aging far differently than say American or even British women.

On average they seem to embrace what is going to happen anyway, but that isn't to say they just give up. Rather than struggle to look like their daughters (like American or British women), Frenchwomen will realize what worked for her say at 25 isn't at 45 or 55, and make appropriate changes in say dress, hair, etc...

Then of course there is fact Frenchmen continue to find women attractive as they age. The desirability of older Frenchwomen has been a part of French culture going back centuries.

La Marquise de Merteuil seduces and beds young The Chevalier Danceny book ‎Les Liaisons Dangereuses. That bit of fiction was rather a common occurrence in French society then in real life and still goes on.

They are not acting out through the media daily. Have some dignity or just set up an OnlyFans.

What all these comments about how PP looks good for "56" years old is just that, the woman is nearly 60, so whatever she's trying to prove can compete against is moot.

Someone looking for a twenty-something young woman for whatever reason, doesn't want her mother or even grandmother, this no matter how preserved either of latter happen to be.

Forty may not be fatal, but fifty pushing on sixty is another matter.

The photo was taken by a fashion photographer and was professionally airbrushed, filtered and edited. We've seen what she looks like when she takes a selfie and she doesn't look anything like that. She works hard on her body and it shows, but she's a bit on the scrawny side. Her face, while still pretty, shows her age. In that professional photo, none of that is evident. If she wants to be honest and authentic and represent older women, this is not the way to do it.

She was born in Czechoslovakia then moved to Sweden. Somehow, she got separated from her parents. When she first came on the modeling scene, her teeth were janky. I think she has low self-esteem. Ocasek was not attractive at all and apparently wasn't that great with money, either.

She's probably just kind of dumb, caught a 2nd wave of fame with Ocasek died, and enjoys the attention, again.

Either it was a PR stunt, or Aaron Sorkin legged it away from this hot mess fast as he could. That should tell people something.

PP just too thirsty and there has to be reasons behind this madness, such as a touch of mental instability. Whether that condition is temporary or has been an ongoing issue remains the larger question.

Why Daily Fail and others are dogging PP and documenting her story is another question that wants answers as well. Again either it is part of a well oiled PR machine, or someone somewhere (perhaps in great names of inclusion and equality) believes this is a saga worth covering... Complete with a nearly 60 year old woman stripping down to her undergarments, posing nude and other questionable images.

This is not going to end well, you mark my words. My guess is we won't hear entire story until after PP dies and one of the sons comes forward with entire backstory. PP remained with her husband for all those years for reasons only she knows. Worse the daft cow went back to take care of him during his final illness when she could have been well out of it.

More fodder for analysts is fact PP's new apartment is in same building where she lived when first arrived in NYC. There's something up with this woman that simply gives off cray cray vibes.

No sane and reasonable man is going to go anywhere near, and why should they? Sure PP looks "great" for a nearly sixty year old woman, but she's just that. Even an old geezer like Aaron Sorkin can pull young women half PP's age (if only for sex), that don't come with her emotional and or mental baggage.

Younger man might find PP interesting or whatever else goes into running around with an old woman. But they likely would have even less patience than an older man for what apparently is PP's very thirsty neediness.
