Elle MacPherson gave up drugs and alcohol to stay fit at 50

Elle reveals how to stay fit at 50

 

There's a reason they call her "The Body." And now super model Elle MacPherson is sharing her secrets on how too look fabulous at 50.

"In my 40s, I started to focus on health and wellness," she told Ocean Drive magazine. "I stopped drinking and taking any drugs - even aspirin - and I began really cleaning out my system."

When MacPherson turned the big 5-0 in March, the mom of two sons, 11 and 16, said she felt "reborn."

"'Beauty at every age' is such a boring cliché, but beauty is not just reserved for youth," she said. "There’s a big movement that supports that. 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...By the time I hit 50, I didn’t feel any sort of plateau physically... It wasn’t like, Oh my gosh, I’d better get myself together before I turn 50; it was more like I was reborn."

The model, who recently moved from London to Miami, said she lives a fairly normal life give or take a few big amenities. When asked what car she typically drives she responded, "Do you want the pretentious answer, but it is the truth? A selection."

At the end of the day, what matters the most to MacPherson is family.

"My greatest gift is my husband who I adore and our family; we have five children between us in different parts of the country, and life is rich and fulfilling and sometimes really hectic."
