Paulina isn't afraid to talk openly about the aging process. "Nothing ages as poorly as a beautiful woman's ego," she says. "Every time a guy passes by me when I've made an effort and doesn't take a second look, it hurts a little bit."
She still remembers an incident with a mail carrier that bruised her model ego. "My mailman handed me a letter and told me he wasn't sure if I was aware that there was a hot model living in my building. And he was speaking of me," she says. "It hurts a little bit."
Although aging may hurt sometimes, Paulina is grateful for the experience. "I could just go and Botox it all away, and I would be all plumped up and looking 10 years younger and reinvigorated, but then I'm just delaying the process," she says. "You forget to remember that aging is a privilege, and it's not a birthright."
