Paulina Porizkova talks about aging and dating: "I am now completely invisible"

she's talking like an eldergay on Datalounge!

I mean she is at the advanced age of 56 but surely she's still pretty enough to get an attractive guy in her age group. Not all of them want a younger girl to boss around

This woman needs a good psychiatrist, not to pour out her soul and low self-esteem issues to the general public.

I guess it must be rough for any woman who based their worth on their looks, especially those whose career was based on their looks.

I guess it's also karma, I heard she wasn't very nice during the height of her modeling career.

She clearly can’t accept that she no longer looks 25. She is obsessed with her lost youth and keeps doing these stupid interviews talking about how she no longer turns heads or how men are desperate to fuck her now as they were when she was younger.

What does she expect? Did she think she would somehow be immune to the universal reality of aging? She needs to get a grip.

My mother who is 69 is constantly told she looks much younger. She eats healthy, does yoga, and has no stress. She has never had plastic surgery, has never worried about getting older, and is not vain.

Women like my mom tend to naturally age better than those like Ms. Porikova.

I don't buy Paulina's claims of invisibility. She's probably not going to have young guys falling all over her but there are plenty of men her age and older who would. She's still an attractive woman, at least until she starts whining about how she's no longer young.

Good for her for looking her age, but along with the accepting wrinkles goes accepting there's a time for everything. 56 is not the time to be whining about being invisible to men you want to date. She should do something with her life and wealth that she loves, and along the way she might meet a man who'd love her.

It's kind of rich her constantly complaining about this when she was the hottie in Sports Illustrated and then the untouchable beauty in make-up ads for years. She could at least reflect on the grand life her beauty gave her (and still could--I imagine if she had a different personality, she could be an elder influencer).

At her age you should have other priorities. I don’t know a single well-rounded and psychologically healthy person of her age who’s fretting over whether people half their age find them hot or not.

R25, she has publicly stated that her husband cut her out of his will and left her broke. She may have since challenged that, but she definitely wasn’t bringing in more than him. That is just untrue.

I always thought she was sharp because one time on letterman he was teasing her about making a list of the 20 smartest celebrities and he asked her what, exactly, was the evidence of intelligence that qualified her for the list? Instead of answering she just said, “Are you on the list?” Now I’m thinking that was scripted. She’s an idiot.

She is alienating every woman on the planet and only making her target audience think, “yeah, I can do better.” No guy looking for a trophy wife wants one who has already proclaimed that she’s been left on the shelf.

by Anonymousreply 29January 12, 2022 10:45 AM

R29: she def earned more than her husband. She did not keep her earnings separate, so the money left in the will was partially hers.

In 1988 Paulina signed a contract with Estée Lauder that paid her $6 million per year through 1995. In total, she earned $42 million before taxes from that one contract alone. Ric most def did not outearn her.

Perhaps if she cultivated her brain as much as she's obsessed over her looks, she wouldn't be whining all the time. How about she step away from social media and think about how other widows and divorced women, especially those who don't have her model looks, somehow manage to date in their 50s and 60s.

Does she ever think her constant whining and complaining is a huge turn-off, to not only men, but to possibly her friends. I bet she has few close friends.

She sounds obsessed and psychotic. She's definitely overly obsessed with her looks and her lost youth. Then again, that's how she made a living, her looks. Her entire career was about her looks. The few films I saw her in, she was terrible. She's certainly no Rhodes Scholar. She has little to fall back on.

Some of these models start out at 15-16, then they are made-up to look 25, that has to fuck with your brain. Most quit school, are sexual assaulted by the straight male photographers and the other creeps in that scene. Many get into drugs and heavy drinking. Models are nothing but human mannequins.

Not all models achieve the levels of success and wealth Paulina had. Paula had a great life, but it's clear, she has no second act. Her problem, she cannot let go.

People who live in the real world had to deal with much worse than Paulina, they've lost jobs, have loved ones die, break up with their spouses and partners while others have terrible tragedies in their lives, yet, most people can and do move on.

Who can relate to a rich former super model whining?

by Anonymousreply 33January 12, 2022 11:21 AM

She said that before they got married, Ric had told her that he thought signing a prenup was a 'bad omen' and meant that they thought their marriage wouldn't last.

Their finances were merged throughout their 28-year marriage, and they had two sons together — Jonathan, 27, and Oliver, 22. She noted that she still had access to money after they announced their separation in 2018.

However, that all changed when Ric died in their Manhattan townhouse in September 2019 at age 75. She learned he had cut her out of his will, claiming she had 'abandoned' him, leaving her without any money to live off of, including her previous earnings.

It was quite stupid of her to merge her earnings with her husband Ric Ocasek, especially as she earned much more than Ric. Money wise, The Cars weren't exactly Rolling Stones level earners.

Ric had a bad rep with women, he had affairs while married to both of his ex-wives.

Didn't he have an affair with Paulina while married to his second wife? (They met on the set of a Cars video) If that was the case, Ric left his second wife for Paulina, should she have really been surprised at being left out of his will?

Ric sounded like a real piece of work.

The reason she feels completely invisible is because she USED to get a extreme amount of attention.

This bitch is nutty. She doesn’t look her age. She looks better than most American women in their 30s. Can’t she just chill the fuck out and enjoy not having the pressure younger women feel to always look good? What she is really saying is “Men no longer find me attractive” which is sad because that means her validation comes from the male gaze. Its pathetic and someone needs to take her phone away.

Also, to punctuate her words with coquettish pictures…she has gone past embarrassing herself. I believe becoming a top model does in fact drive you batty.

The term "Trophy Wife" reminded all of us what we know deep down inside but choose to becloud by mouthing dishonest platitudes like, "It's what's on the inside that counts".

That's changing. I think more people acknowledge that looks and youth matter and are more valued than the aged. To acknowledge that doesn't mean that it's changed, or is how it should be.

The reality is that men, especially rich, entitled, heterosexual men, see their partners as a reflection of their own power, status and entitlement.

Older, plainer 1st wife? Out. In with the trophy wife that allows a man to see his own worth reflected back at him.

I'll always be grateful for my mother who told me, when I was a young woman, to make the most of my young years, and when I notice that attention has turned away from me, to accept it.

That happened in my mid-30s. Was it jarring for a day or two? Of course, but then my mother's words worked their magic.

Dignity is priceless.

If you’re born with unusual beauty, by all means take advantage of it, but be honest with at least yourself about what it will and won’t do for you. I can respect models who go after very rich guys who only care about their wife’s looks, and build up a cushion to survive after they get dumped when their looks fade, and I can respect models who decide they want a life partner, not a personal bank, and look for a guy with substance. But if you’re still trying to fish in the “rich man looking for an object” pond when you’re older, you’re not going to catch a thing.

She’s an odd duck—awkward—always has been. Plucked from Eastern European obscurity and elevated onto a unique perch—she defined beauty for a moment in about 1986, kind of like Cindy Crawford did in about 1991.

She was always more “commercial” than “runway” and had those coveted, fat cosmetic and fragrance contracts—she was never one of the girls…always set apart from the sunny—and more accessible—Kim Alexis, Carol Alt, etc.

She came across as intelligent, had a dark sense of humor, and a deadpan delivery: many people in her professional orbit just didn’t know how to take her and mistook her sardonic nature as sarcasm or making fun of them. It was not. She was mostly just bemused by her enormous success owing to no talent but something she was born with. Rolling your eyes at the ludicrousness of the industry they were all in did not make her any friends in an industry that demands self-reverence.

She was never much of a dater and latched onto Ric Ocasek early on. I’m not surprised she’s in this spot now. I agree with other posters: she goes on and on and on far too long, and it reverberates in the echo chamber of social media way more than in-person. I think she probably does want to be in a relationship but she wants a guy her age or older and, of course, rich. Most of those bachelors are not looking for someone as complex (or old) as Paulina. She reminds me of Yolanda Hadid in many ways, another odd, misunderstood model in her 50s. If Paulina just wants a boyfriend, she could easily find a younger man, but I think she still wants a daddy. She had a horrible childhood and has not spoken to her father in 40 years.

With anyone else, I would say all this social media activity was a calculated preamble to building her platform in preparation for some product launch…but not Paulina. She’s just being herself.

The fact is, most women in their 50s don't think they are old, these women are still working, have careers, some are married, others are widows, all have grown kids and grandkids.

Some of you don't have a correct definition of "old". Years ago, a 60-70 year old looked like today's version of an 80 year old, Most women today take much better care of themselves, they eat better foods, exercise, take vitamins etc. One of my grandmothers was only 70 when she died, she looked much older than her age.

The fact that Paulina hasn't cultivated having a life BEYOND modeling, is her problem, not the worlds. Her entire persona seems based solely on her looks. This 'problem' is on her, no one else.

Didn't this dizzy self-absorbed woman realize modeling has a very short life span? She was never interested in anything else? Had no other goals beyond modeling and being a trophy wife to an ugly rockstar?

One of the most famous and gorgeous former models on the planet, Jean Shrimpton, runs a B&B in England with her husband. Jean has accepted aging, her wrinkles and has moved on. In her heyday, Jean dated equally gorgeous actors (she was involved with Terrence Stamp for awhile) and was top in her field. The difference, Jean was intelligent enough to realize modeling careers are not forever and that she would age and a new crop of gorgeous young women would replace her.

The older women I know, as well as my older female relatives, don't obsesses about aging, mostly because all but two of them did not work in glamour field, One is still an art director in advertising and the other is a photographer, they've both managed to remain relevant in two very youth oriented fields. How many older women photographers work in fashion photography? Very few.

Most importantly, besides having an actual talent, my photographer relative is intelligent. This woman has also cultivated a personality, she's smart, charming and witty and has great rapport with everyone she works with. Doesn't treat people like trash and is well-liked. During her heyday, Paulina was extremely haughty and annoying, it's no surprise she's being shunned now.

There has to be more to any human being than their looks. If that's all they've got to offer, they are setting themselves up to extremely disappointed.

Looks fade, stupid is forever!

Sam Levinson is NOT "absolutely gorgeous. He looks unhinged. 😂 🤣

How about we talk about Ellen Barkin's ex husband, Ron Perlman? He seemed to date and marry his physical and financial equals, not to mention, women close to his age. Due to his immense wealth, Ron could have easily found a much younger trophy wife.

One of Rons wives, the late gossip columnist Claudia Cohen, had her own wealth, she was a Hudson News heiress.

With men the formula is you can't be broke, ugly, AND an asshole. Age isn't really a variable as long as a guy isn't all three of the foregoing. He can rich and ugly, or broke and cute, and still find women.

With women it's you can't be old. That's pretty much it. It's hard to get round this one. I'm not saying Paulina should retire to the countryside and raise chickens, but she's almost 60. For her own wellbeing she needs to develop interests other than her appearance and her fuckability. And maybe practice a little gratitude for everything she has been given thus far.

[quote][R110] I definitely recall both Porizkova and Ocasic doing some very nasty fat-shaming during a joint interview. I wish I could remember where and when. I saw this on TV.

Ironic, as Ocasek was repulsive looking, he was the proverbial pencil-necked-geek and he looked like a walking corpse. Paulina bought whatever bill of good he was selling, she doesn't seem very bright. The part about joining her assets with his proved how dumb this woman is.

This was Paulina's idea of an attractive caring man? Aside from his horrid looks, he was a terrible husband. He cheated on his wives and was a deadbeat dad, especially to his oldest son Chris Otcasek. Chris called Ric a “narcissist” who was “never present.”

Chris Otcasek (who uses the original spelling of the family name) is the product of the rock star’s first marriage to Constance Campbell.

In 1971, Ric divorced Campbell while she was six months pregnant with their second child and in the same year married second wife Suzanne. Ric and Suzanne went on to have two sons, Eron and Derek. Ric later went on to have an affair with Paulina while still married to his second wife Suzanne!

While filming the music video for The Cars’ song “Drive” in 1984, the 40-year-old Ocasek met 18-year old Czech-born supermodel Paulina Porizkova. Ric ditched his second wife in 1988 and married Porizkova. They had two sons, Jonathan and Oliver.

Chris, who had a record deal with Capitol Records in the late ’80s, said he didn’t hear from his father for most of his childhood — that is until The Cars started charting with hits like “Shake It Up” and “You Might Think.”

“There may have been a touch of guilt, but I also think he wanted to say he was becoming famous and I think that gets into one of the more universal things in that he was just simply a narcissist,” Chris told us.

“He didn’t have the sort of conscience to keep him grounded so he just kept going and always went for the next thing even if that meant abandoning or neglecting children. That was fine with him. I don’t think he thought much about it.”

Chris claimed that “my father, in essence, died the day I was born. He was never present, he was never there. Even when he was, he was never there and that’s the abandonment that I’m referring to.”

Chris said he had lived in New York but moved to Los Angeles to “get as far away geographically from him as I could. I was living a few blocks from him for a year or two and saw him once maybe and I just decided I had to get as far away as possible as I could.”

From all accounts, Ric seemed like a real piece of shit.

Because Paulina lived in a world where teens believed that if they have been blessed genetically, they can make lots of money, and even get famous, solely on their beauty. Unfortunately, that hasn't changed. Attractive people always have doors easily opened for them.

Anyone who chooses to marry someone 20 years older than them has to accept that they will eventually be left alone. So they better start preparing for that eventuality in all the relevant ways. Equally, if someone chooses to marry someone with mental problems, health problems or a bad history, they can expect it is likely to affect their marriage as well.

We all have to play the cards we're dealt. Ageing is the price we pay for not dying young. But it is truly said - ageing is not for sissies. We have to work hard on our mental resilience and learn to see the glass as half-full, because the losses are unavoidable.

But - regarding Paulina...anti-ageing techniques like laser and botox are the new normal. Botox and lunchtime peels are not invasive. Once upon a time, they didn't even have hair dye and people looked old by 50. She could still look amazing with minimal effort, expense, risk or pain. But what she needs is a good therapist as well as a good life coach, esthetician, and plastic surgeon.

Some women just cannot face fact they've gone from not being able to walk two steps from their home without being hit on, to totally invisible far as male sex is concerned.

Know both trannies and females who in their young days were beating back guys with sticks. On subway, on line as Starbucks, at gym, jogging or rollerblading in Central Park, just walking down the street... Guys always tried to make eye contact, chat them up, etc... Then they peaked, and got old....

So many of these females or whatever think life is like SATC and they are Samantha. Sorry hun, but no, the world does not have tons of young hot (or even not) men dying to hook-up with older women. Well not for free anyway.

Ocasek` sounds like one of the Trump style of narcissists. Porizkova is as dumb as a rock to have hooked up with him. Even his children hate him. These two were made for each other. He was a predator and she was a hanger-on. The most fascinating part of all this human trash is the fact that Ocasek is simply hideous looking. If he had never made it in rock, no one would have given him a second look. He was a classic pencil-necked geek.

She’s still gorgeous. I know many women in Manhattan who used to be beautiful (some former models), and most of them have Paulina’s attitude. One is twice divorced (one was rich and she did pretty well, the second was an immigrant who swindled her out of a lot of it) and I was sure she’d be able to snag one more rich guy before it was too late. She complained that all the men who were interested in her were old and gross. What did she expect?! She was banging a hot trainer dude, but he wasn’t going to marry her.

Anyway, she did nab some 50-ish preppy dude from a wealthy suburb who whisked her off during Early Covid Times. I met him once or twice and got a bad vibe from him.

The main problem is that she refused to settle, as she felt entitled to a hot rich man. They don’t marry fading beauties. The older rich men might, if she has a Pamela Harriman demeanor.

The two who who hadn’t really stuck out : Paulina and Jerry Hall. They both acted flirtatious and silly and smiled what were once captivating, irresistible smiles.

True, r143.

There are, however, always outliers, and if anybody has the extraordinary game to be one, it's Sanchez, and I write this with respect to her.

Besides, a DLer here who worked with and knew wealthy, heterosexual men, once posted here that part of their choosing a new wife or partner, besides looks and youth, is, who was she previously coupled with? If her ex(es) were of power, talent, money, fame then he sees in her a reflection of that in himself, too.

For example, If Carolyn Bessette Kennedy were still alive, she'd have long-ago left the handsome, yet boring, JFK, Jr., and, by now, be on her, say, 2nd or 3rd hedge-fund billionaire. Being the ex of JFK, Jr. would have only increased her desirability.

For a Geek like Bezos, that Sanchez's exes were a handsome NFL star and a successful, wealthy, glamour-adjacent Hollywood agent, that fills the bill.

And, I know she's mocked here, but I have no problem believing that, in person, Sanchez is a very compelling woman, both physically and personality-wise.

She complains that men only want to date women who are 20 years younger than themselves. Well, she willingly promoted this shitty hierarchy herself in 1989 when she became the trophy wife of a man old enough to be her father. When she was 24, she married a 45-year old man. It was OK then, but now it's not? Since she's no longer part of the privileged group?

Fat, bald, men in their 50s, 60s, and 70s think they deserve very attractive women in their 30s. And they often get them because women keep trading their looks for money. In this society, social/romantic currency comes from women's looks and men's money. For women, their value declines as they get older and their looks fade. For men, however, their capacity to make money increases in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, so their value increases with age. (It makes little sense, since women outlive men; this phenomenon leads to longer periods of widowhood). It's a fucked up system, but she happily went along with it when she was in your 20s.

R175: unwanted sexual attention which can turn aggressive and violent is no fun. Straight men are ugly and nasty and vindictive little bitches.

I’m a plain looking guy, but my older brother was very handsome in our youth, and always had a lot given to him because of his looks. In high school and college, he was picked first for jobs and opportunities, and he got a lot of things given to him by both men and women. Yet losing that advantage as he aged was a huge hardship for him, and he tried to hang on to it with a lot of laser treatments, Botox, and also stronger medicine for depression and mood disorders that are likely related to his loss of stature as his appearance changed. It’s sad.

Beautiful women like Paulina are devastated by the loss of attention because they are hit on by rich, famous and/or good looking men. In her case, she didn't care about looks, but she had her pick of men. Average looking young women get hit on by losers and betas. Of course, they'd be relieved not to have to deal with that anymore.

A lot of the attention beautiful women get is from assholes because other men are too intimidated to approach them. My partner was friends with an actress. She was drop-dead gorgeous and a good person but could not find a decent guy.

by Anonymousreply 180January 19, 2022 12:53 PM

^ Exactly. A decent guy doesn't have an overinflated opinion of himself. He'd probably think twice about flirting with a beautiful woman because he'd feel he wasn't on her level.

Assholes and egomaniacs don't respect boundaries. They wouldn't hesitate to hit on any attractive woman. After they hear "no, not interested," they don't back off like a decent guy would. If the asshole is superficially charming and good at manipulation, she could end up saying "yes" and experience a lousy relationship for a while.

Paulina has a very healthy ego, doesn't she...She sees herself as a high value individual due to her career in modeling and marriage to a rock star (albeit a pretty awful one). She wants another high value individual (money, well known in his career, etc) that she feels entitled to have.

Her entitlement is out there. Find a retired NYC school teacher with a good pension and second home in the HV or Bershires.

She's still a good-looking broad. Count your blessings and go with your god, Paulina - or, better yet, your psychiatrist.

R180 Yes, I have heard exactly this from many beautiful women over the years. The intimidation factor is there with these incredible looking women. So much so that they can have a difficult time finding someone to date. There the other problem is finding and keeping female friendships. No woman wants to feel like shitty leftovers. I've watched as fabulous looking women will receive attention while their friend stands by as if invisible. Backs to them and all.

I watched About Face and one thing was apparent from Paulina's interview that explains a lot of her attitude and statements - she is very eastern European. They have a certain type of emotional energy. I don't think she's arrogant and entitled.

Isabella Rosselini was of course the stand-out; she is warm, charming and very articulate. But I thought Jerry Hall was delightful and I can see why she is so well-liked.

Pat currently lives in New Jersey with her husband, former Dutch model and fashion photographer, Paul van Ravenstein, the father of her model daughter Anna Cleveland. They also have a son, Noel.

Pat's dad was of Irish-Swedish descent and her mother of African-American, Native-American and Irish-Scottish ancestry. Pat grew up in Harlem. Not sure what sort of accent she'd have. A 'New Yawk' one?!

I am in my mid 50s female - still trim and fit - but mid 50s none the less. In my teens, 20s into early 30s if I walked anywhere guys in cars who whoop, honk and whistle. It’s funny but at some point you notice - NOTHING - then you try to think back - when was the last time anyone made a fuss. …. Same with going out alone or with a girlfriend - the hokey sweet dumb banter like a strange guy saying “Boy you look prettier when you smile! ….Let me buy you a drink! ….Are you waiting for someone?” These are the same guys that now would elbow right in front of me and grab a shopping cart at Vons and not even notice they stepped in front of me. I think that it is just chemistry………. Years ago I remember Cybill Shepherd saying she was blown away the first time that she crossed the street with her teen aged daughter and she could feel the energy and eyes going to her daughter and not to her.

Isabella was never married to David Lynch. She was married to another filmmaker, Martin Scorsese, from 1979 to 1982.

After her marriage to Scorsese ended, she was married to Jon Wiedemann from 1983 to 1986. She had daughter with Wiedermann, Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann, (born 1983) and an adopted son, Roberto Rossellini (born 1993).

Elettra was modeling for awhile, she looks nothing like Isabella.

Isabella was engaged to English actor Gary Oldman from 1994 to 1996.

Old women can throw themselves into work or grandchildren, take up a hobby, or convert to Lesbyterianism. If you’re lucky and haven’t aged too badly, you might be able to lure a straight twink with a MILF complex. It’s rare, but it happens.

She's still a pretty woman at 56. As hot as she was at 20? No, but pretty nonetheless.

I have no sympathy for her. She was fine with men ignoring 50 something women to pay attention to HER but now she's 50 something and getting ignored. Like someone upthread said, she supported the hierarchy when she was young.

Now she's at the same level as a typical handsome but middle class guy. It's obvious her fortune was built on looks and looks alone because if she had something special to offer besides her looks I can see why she wouldn't want to settle for some average dude. She doesn't have anything else though, it's as simple as that.

I think that Paulina isn’t being pursued by men - NOT because of her age and beauty but because of two things - When a beautiful woman ages she must “wear it well” and be comfortable in her own shoes. She has to show interest and knowledge in something other than herself. An interesting beautiful older woman has a good chance for companionship - IF she even wants it. Paulina allows a little too much Bi Polar “Fatal Attraction” vibe show through for most men to be interested.

Even Linda Evangelista has realized she can cash in on her deformity. Also, does she really think being young and beautiful, being noticed, would make her life better?
