Paulina Porizkova has no time for ageist critics.

The supermodel, 55, addressed the hate she’s received for her lingerie-clad and nude Instagram posts on “The Tamron Hall Show” Friday.

“In my 20s, I was celebrated for showing up in lingerie. I was getting a lot of money for it and everybody loved me,” Porizkova said, per People.

“In my 50s, I still think I look pretty good in lingerie, but the reaction is reviled, obviously not by everybody, but yeah, there’s a fair amount of backlash.”

The model is known for showing off her ageless beauty and speaking up about societal standards on social media, frequently employing the hashtag “#betweenjloandbettywhite.”

“I think it’s that when you get older when there’s a certain sort of invisible boundary that happens in maybe your mid 40s where you, I guess you don’t look fertile anymore, it’s a menopausal thing,” she added.

The Czech-born beauty remarked that it seems “sexy is not allowed” at a certain age, perhaps “because you’re starting to look a little like people’s mom.”

“You’re allowed to be beautiful, you’re allowed to be handsome, you’re allowed to be present, you’re allowed to be shocking or eye-opening, but you are not allowed to be sexy,” she told Hall.

It’s not the first time Porizkova has addressed the subject of ageism, as she shared her own nude photo following “the brouhaha” surrounding 55-year-old Elizabeth Hurley’s topless post in January.

In her caption, she included some of the negative comments she regularly receives for posting scantily-clad photos, such as, “Put on your clothes, grandma,” and, “A little desperate here? You’re pathetic.”

“Why is sexiness and nudity applauded in a woman’s youth and reviled in her maturity? Because of men,” she wrote. “The only thing that is pathetic here is allowing others to set your priorities.”
