Elle Macpherson wears many hats. She is a supermodel, businesswoman, television host, actress, wife, mom-of-two and, as of March, an official member of the 50+ club!
But, growing older hasn't stopped the model, affectionately known as "The Body," from slowing down.

"I didn’t feel any kind of milestone pressure turning 50 at all, perhaps because I’ve been preparing for this stage of my life for a long time," Elle revealed in a new interview with 'Ocean Drive' magazine.

"In my 40s, I started to focus on health and wellness; I stopped drinking and taking any drugs — even aspirin — and I began really cleaning out my system. By the time I hit 50, I didn’t feel any sort of plateau physically, and it didn’t feel like a shock emotionally either. It wasn’t like, Oh my gosh, I’d better get myself together before I turn 50; it was more like I was reborn," she said of her milestone birthday.

At 50, Elle is also arguably in the best shape of her life! She recently took to Twitter to post a bikini-clad photo of herself while on vacation with her family, which, to her surprise, quickly went viral.

"I got an e-mail from my business partner asking, ‘Can you take a selfie while you’re on holiday, so I can post it?’ And I said, ‘Ugh, I don’t really do selfies.’ So I asked my stepdaughter to snap it. I had just gone for a swim when we did it," she said of the now infamous picture.
"I just tweeted it and didn’t really even think anything of it. It had a phenomenal response," the supermodel added.
