A young Elle Macpherson.
Elle Macpherson may have, is known as “The Body” during the height of her fame, but the supermodel is grateful that she no longer has the same figure as she did in her 20s.
The 54-year-old insisted on “this morning” Wednesday, she has not gone under the knife to maintain her famous features.

“I have not yet done plastic surgery, not that I have an opinion – it is just not my choice. I love a natural looking face,” she said.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit star, who skyrocketed to fame in the ’80s, insisted she is proud of how her body has changed over the years, especially after becoming a mother of two sons.
“I try to do some exercise every day, but I have not the same body as in my 20s,” said the Australian model. “This body has brought forth two amazing boys, and lived through the great stages of fashion and fitness. There are a lot of changes and I am grateful to be able to evolve in time. I am open to change and development. These are the tangible assets in my life.”
Macpherson said the secret behind her confidence is to maintain a healthy lifestyle with the help of a plant-based diet.
“When I turned 50, I realized the things I did in my 20’s weren’t working more,” she said. “I follow a plant-based alkaline diet, focusing on healthy, whole food.
“I take the green powder and protein powder every day, and I drink three liters of water a day. That is in australia, the outdoors has always been important to me. So I like to get out, walk, walk the dogs, go for a swim and I do yoga in the evening. There is already a change not only in my body, but my well-being.”
This is not the first time Macpherson has claimed she hasn’t considered plastic surgery. Back in 2016, she told the UK Telegraph they prefer a no-nonsense diet over anything else.
“No, I didn’t have surgery; it is not in my game plan,” she said. “I have no perspective on anyone else, only for myself. I would worry, because I know that things can go wrong really easily. With a number of these procedures, you may feel that you look younger, but it doesn’t look quite right.
“So I’m really trying, of course, I can’t do laser on my skin, because I have so much time in the sun and the hyperpigmentation.”
Still, that does not mean that Macpherson has not yet dabbled in certain procedures. When asked if she has tried Botox and collagen to smooth out the signs of aging, they simply said yes.

“Yes, I’ve tried things, but most of the time they don’t work for me,” she said. “It doesn’t work for my face – some people get things done, and they look even worse. I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat and I don’t want to mess with what is. At this point, I think it’s best to leave, what I only.
“That said, I do vitamin injections, infusions and I work on my nutrition,” she added. “… I have learned that a good smile, good teeth, good hair, good skin, a good mood are more than a thousand injectables and Botox, facials and masks.”
