Porizkova has often talked about her modeling industry experiences, both excellent and bad. She published an Instagram earlier this month discussing how hard it was for her to cope with rejection in the previous areas of her career.

My last post about being rejected by a photographer I idolized got me thinking.( By the way, thank you all so much for the lovely comments). There were a few other photographers I adored and fervently wished to work with, who either worked with me once, or never even tried. For the ones I worked with only once – I could take responsibility – maybe I was an asshole that day. Maybe they didn’t like my personality. But the ones that refused me based on my looks, well, those are the hard ones to forget – because I could’t do anything about the way I looked. And that’s what modeling was about in a nutshell. When you got rejected, it was because of the way you looked. As a 54 year old woman, of course I can look at it and smile. There is more to me than looks, even if you don’t know that. And, I’m not here to please everyone. And I’m delighted that you think your wife or lover is way more beautiful than me. But as a teen, that stuff hurts. And that is also why modeling, as amazing as it can be, can be equally damaging to a young soul. #truth #modeling #overworkedoverpaid photo by @taylorbphoto for @si_swimsuit
