Swedish model and actor Paulina Porizkova took to Twitter on Friday to share a bikini photo.
In the image, she had her back to the camera as she wore a leopard print bikini.
She captioned the image: “Troll bait: a 57-year-old woman in a bikini. Who’s not at all feeling #oldandugly Sorry/not sorry trolls!”
The photo had a mixed reaction among social media users.
“You go Paulina!!! Damn the trolls and haters,” one commented on the photo.
Another said: “I’m 56 … I don’t look anything like you do in a bikini but in all fairness you are a super model.
“I’m not sure how I feel about this thread- it’s sort of like comparing apples to oranges. Felt okay about my appearance before seeing this, now feel inadequate.”
One said: “Seeing you in this shape at 57 is inspiring for me to try to keep going to the gym. Clearly, age is no excuse. Thank you for sharing.”
One added: “Live your life how you want, not how someone else wants. No regrets. We should all be able to look back and say ‘I’m glad I did that’.”
Sharing bikini snaps is nothing new to Porizkova, who shares some racy pictures of her own on Instagram from time to time in an effort to battle ageism.
