ELLE Macpherson thought turning 50 was “cool”.
The Australian supermodel – who is nicknamed ‘The Body’ – reached the milestone last March but insists she feels better than ever.
Asked if she panicked about turning 50, she said, “I just thought, how cool! I have years of experience – and hopefully wisdom.
“It’s a wonderful milestone from an emotional, spiritual and a physical point of view. I feel better than ever.”
Elle – who has sons Flynn, 16, and Aurelius, 11, from a previous relationship and is married to hotelier Jeffrey Soffer – has changed her beauty regime as she has gotten older and though her body is different to how it used to be, she is happy about the changes.
She said, “Your skin texture changes [as you get older] so I’m very diligent about massage, exfoliation and circulation to make sure the skin is nourished and moisturised.
“The shape of your body changes to some extent, especially after having children. But I embrace it.
“I don’t want to have the same body that I had when I was 20 – after all, I’m not the same person as I was then.”
And Elle found turning 40 made her look after her body more.
She explained to Britain’s OK! Magazine, “When I realised how my wellness affected the way I look, I started to focus on it – making sure my body was nourished and that I was having a healthy diet and listening to my body and dealing with ailments as they came.” – BANG!
