47-year-old Carol Alt is finally comfortable in her own skin, and she's baring it all in the December issue of Playboy.
The legendary supermodel chose to pose nude to spotlight the raw food lifestyle she credits for her physique.
“I’ve done a lot of soul-searching about this and have spoken extensively with Playboy about it. They have been amazing to work with and are embracing this message that I want to get across, which is eat healthy, look healthy and be healthy,” Alt said in an article for her Web site. “It doesn’t matter what age you are. You can look sexy and feel great, and that doesn’t have to be a gift only for the young. It can be a gift for any age, even the old (whatever that is nowadays).”
Alt, who has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue and on NBC's TV show "Celebrity Apprentice," with Donald Trump, is suing ex-husband Ron Greschner, a former hockey player for the New York Rangers, over disputed earnings from the sale of a company they invested in.
Alt brought the $1 million suit against Greschner after seeing him in January 2007 at a Rangers game and inquiring about their joint investment in a water filtration business.
In court, Alt said she had completely trusted Greschner, who handled her finances until 1999, to be fair in their divorce settlement.
"I loved Ronnie always," Alt testified. "He was lovely with me. I had no reason to worry. He was the most important person in my adult life."
Alt returned to the courtroom teary-eyed after her testimony and commented, "It was just very emotional."
"I trusted this man. I loved him and revered him, and it's like a death," she said.
Greschner, 53, chuckled softly when told of Alt's comments.
"I'm past it," he said. "I've got kids and things I'm doing. I wish her all the best with what she's doing in life."
When asked what he thought of his ex-wife posing nude for Playboy, Greschner coldly remarked "I have no interest in seeing a 50-year-old woman naked," adding, "My wife right now is 40 and hot, after five kids."
