47 year old super model Carol Alt posed nude for a photo spread in December’s Playboy magazine. Alt said that she chose to bare all for the magazine to highlight the raw diet she adopted over 12 years ago. She said:
“I’ve done a lot of soul-searching about this and have spoken extensively with Playboy about it. They have been amazing to work with and are embracing this message that I want to get across, which is eat healthy, look healthy and be healthy. It doesn’t matter what age you are. You can look sexy and feel great, and that doesn’t have to be a gift only for the young. It can be a gift for any age, even the old (whatever that is nowadays).�?
Despite being a legendary model since the 1980s who has been a Sports Illustrated cover star, this Playboy pictorial marks Alt’s first ever nude photo spread. Alt admitted on her website that she was always self-conscious about her body and stated she had to work hard at keeping a trim figure.
Alt’s ex-husband, former New York Rangers hockey player Ron Greschner, made some disparaging remarks about her decision to pose for Playboy. He said:
“I have no interest in seeing a 50-year-old woman naked. My wife right now is 40 and hot, after five kids.�?
Does this mean he’ll dump his current wife sometime in the next 10 years? I’m not sure he knows what he’s talking about, because these pictures from her photo spread look pretty smoking hot, 50 years old or not (which she is not).
Good for you, Carol! Way to feel comfortable in your own body and want to share it with the world! (Although I can’t believe she didn’t think she was smoking hot back in the day.)
