They say youth is wasted on the young and there's good reason for that.

Paulina says, “I’m now 55, and I have gone through half a lifetime only liking the way I look in retrospect. I look at old photos and realize how good I had it.” Lots of people feel that way except lots of people were not high paid runway and swimsuit models when they were young.

You have to think working in an industry where people are constantly picking your appearance apart is far from confidence building. She sure looks confident now, though.

TBT. Less than two months ago, the world was still a familiar place. And I was basking in its best incarnation, here in Costa Rica. -- Humor me, if you will, today. I’m now 55, and I have gone through half a lifetime only liking the way I look in retrospect. I look at old photos and realize how good I had it. So today, I am looking at myself, (in an admittedly flattering photo) and think, “ hey, I m a good 55 year old! ” I will feel pretty today. And endlessly grateful for all the gifts life has bestowed on me thus far. They’ve been many. Quarantine is a great time to sift through them all.

Yes, genetics helps but it's not like she doesn't also work at it.

And here's a throwback.

Paulina says she hasn't gotten anything pulled or tucked. Yet. But she has gotten a lot of positive comments from people who notice she's keeping it real and she says she's glad to know that anyone cares.
