Paulina Porizkova , originally Pavlína Pořízková, is an American-Swedish model and actress. She was born on April 9, 1965 in Prostějov, Czechoslovakia. Her career in modeling started after her friend sent her pictures to Elite Modeling Agency in the year 1980. When the head of the said agency named John Casablancas noticed her, she was immediately called for a modeling job. During the ’80s, she became Paris’ top model, making her remarkable in the fashion world. Since then, she was highlighted in a number of magazine covers including Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Self, Glamour, and Elle. Her television appearance eventually started when she became one of the judges for the reality modeling competition America’s Next Top Model 10th cycle. She also had acting appearances soon after.
According to Paulina, she gained some weight right after she quit her smoking vice. That’s why she exerted some effort and found ways to lose extra pounds. Thanks to Dancing With the Stars, she was able to manage her weight. “I used to smoke, but when I quit, I gained some weight,” she shared. “Not a hideous amount, just six or eight pounds. It was Christmas too, so I probably would have gained it anyway, but the difference was that this time it was harder to lose that weight. Then, after I did Dancing With the Stars, which was basically six to eight hours a day of exercise, I liked the way my body looked and the way I felt and I wanted to keep it up. So I started going to the gym.”
Now what about her diet? “I eat all the salad and vegetables first, so that when it comes time to eat the good stuff I’m already getting full. I save the yummy stuff for last. Everything I hate I eat first: salad, vegetables, beans,” the model revealed.
