24 July 2014 / 2 years 3 months ago

Elle MacPherson is a 50-year-old Australian businesswoman, model, actress and television host, known best for her record of five Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers beginning in the 1980s.

Last week, she tweeted a picture of herself in a bikini which had the Internet gobsmacked -- How in the world does she look so great at 50?

According to ABC News via Elite Daily, MacPherson swears by laughing, and her diet consists mainly of ”vegetables, a little bit of fish, not much protein, no coffee, alcohol” and three liters of water a day.

MacPherson admitted she doesn’t go to the gym.

She said: "I’m Australian and I’ve always done a lot of sport, whether it be surfing or running or hiking, road biking … it’s not really just about making sure you look thin but it’s actually that you enjoy doing."
