Paulina Porizkova showed off her incredibly toned abs in a topless bikini photo on Wednesday, just one day after she announced her split from Aaron Sorkin.
The 56-year-old supermodel took to Instagram to share a snapshot of herself and her friend Liz Carey posing outside, wearing nothing but bikini bottoms, with their chests strategically covered with mask emojis.
‘We’re told we need to wear masks again. So @thelizcarey and I are obliging,’ Paulina cheekily wrote in the caption. She went on to pay tribute to those closest to her, saying they give her everything she needs.

Over: The topless post comes one day after Porizkova, 56, announced on Instagram that she and screenwriter Aaron Sokin, 60, have broken up after three months of dating
‘My friends (and family) are my true riches,’ she explained. ‘They laugh and cry with me, they feed me and water me, physically and spiritually. And allow for both sides to “bare” their souls. And yes, bodies. Thank you @thelizcarey for the photos and the fun and the food!’
The mother of two has previously credited her incredible figure to her favorite workouts — NoFar Method pilates and YouTuber Aqua Jade’s dance cardio — as well as EMSculpt NEO treatments to tighten the muscles and firm the skin.
‘At fifty-six, staying in shape takes work! I try to exercise at least 3-5 days a week. And you know what? I frickin hate it,’ she admitted in an Instagram post last month. ‘I don’t like to sweat and huff and puff and hurt. If sitting on a couch, eating cake, drinking wine and reading did the same for me as exercise, there would be no contest.
‘BUT. I have come to find out that “working out” is that perfect little pill everyone is looking for,’ she added. ‘It makes you feel good, look good, good for your brain and body — a small miracle that has to be paid [off] by a little discomfort.’
Split: In the caption, she gushed about how wonderful Sorkin is, saying ‘there truly may be no better man,’ but she alluded to them being too different
Memories: The former couple made their red carpet debut at the Academy Awards in April, which she later revealed was actually their second date
The topless post comes one day after she revealed that she and Sorkin have gone their separate ways after roughly three months together.
She shared the news of their breakup on Instagram Tuesday, posting a photo of herself and her now-ex, 60, out for a walk with a broken heart emoji over it.
In the caption, Porizkova gushed about how wonderful the Oscar-winning screenwriter is, calling him ‘witty’ and ‘sexy.’ She never explicitly revealed why their relationship came to an end, but she alluded to them being too different.
‘I’m so grateful for his presence in my life. He helped heal me and reclaim myself. There truly may be no better man, no man who’s more genuinely “good,”‘ she wrote. ‘He’s brilliant and witty and funny and sexy.
‘But it doesn’t matter how much we may wish we were birds of a feather — we’re still a duck and a goose.’
‘Thank you @dailymail for this slightly goofy paparazzi shot,’ she added.
Loss: Sorkin was the first man Porizkova has been publicly linked to since the death of her estranged husband, rocker Ric Ocasek (pictured in 2013), in September 2019
Old boyfriend: Porizkova briefly dated Men in Black writer Ed Solomon (left) in May 2019 while separated from Ocasek. They were together for several months before quietly breaking up
The photo shows Sorkin holding Porizkova’s scarf in his hand and looking at her with a smile on his face while out on a stroll.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit alum went on to note that she will not be speaking of their breakup in the future out of respect for Sorkin.
‘As unfiltered as I usually am, this involves someone else’s privacy — so this is all I’ll ever say on the subject,’ she concluded.

Divorced: Sorkin was married to Julia Bingham from 1996 to 2006 (left); they two share a daughter, Roxy (pictured right in 2017)
Supporting role: A year after he split from his ex-wife, he dated Kristen Chenoweth, who appeared in his show The West Wing
Ex: Sorkin’s most public romance before Porizkova was with Sex And The City star Kristin Davis, whom he dated on and off between 2012 and 2014 (pictured in 2012)
Prior to Sorkin’s relationship with Porizkova, his most public romance was with Sex and the City star Kristin Davis, whom he dated on and off between 2012 and 2014.
Years before, he was briefly linked to Glee star Kristen Chenoweth, who had appeared in his show The West Wing. The two reportedly began dating in 2006, one year after he divorced his wife of nine years, Julia Bingham.
The screenwriter-director and his ex-wife share one child, a 20-year-old daughter named Roxy.
Sorkin and Porizkova made their red carpet debut at the Academy Awards in April, with the model dazzling in a shimmery gold dress.
She joked on Instagram that she wanted to ‘look like a female Oscar’ so her date ‘could still take one home’ if he didn’t win his category.

Later, in a New York Times profile, she revealed that Sorkin, whom she called a ‘great kisser,’ invited her to the Oscars for their second date.
The A-list couple’s surprise pairing made a huge splash at the ceremony held at Los Angeles’ Union Station, and Porizkova said she was nervous about making things official at such a huge event.
‘This is going to kind of take me off the market for a little bit,’ she told Sorkin, who won an Oscar for his 2009 Facebook biopic The Social Network.
‘OK,’ he replied.
It’s unclear when Porizkova and Sorkin parted ways, but she has been busy jet-setting around the globe this month.
Ageless beauty: Porizkova posted a number of snapshots of herself showing off her phenomenal figure while on vacation
Great friends: Porizkova stayed at the exclusive Hermosa-Hills villas run by Beauty Pie founder Marcia Kilgore’s husband, Thierry Boué
She spent a few weeks working in Rome, where she strutted her stuff in Fendi’s runway show on July 8.
She looking every inch a supermodel in a high-collared white suit and matching pants. She appeared alongside a host of famous fashion faces on the catwalk, including Amber Valetta and Kate Moss.
Instead of a typical runway, the models walked through an intricate maze of archways before coming to a stop on a large leveled structure — a picture-perfect spot for a final photo of all the looks together.
Days later, she traveled 19 hours to Costa Rica for a tropical vacation.
Porizkova shared a photo of herself boarding a small plane on July 11, writing: ‘Goodbye Rome, hello Costa Rica! It only took me 19 hours to get here. Also — 19 hours in a mask is itchy.
Living it up: The model shared a video of herself modeling a blue bikini while standing under a waterfall early on in the trip
Long day: Porizkova traveled 19 hours from Rome to get to Costa Rica on July 11. ‘It’s vacation time thanks to my friends Thierry and Marcia,’ she wrote in the caption of this photo
‘I ended up eating Fritos (sorry, don’t like chips) just so I could not wear it for a moment,’ she admitted. ‘But here I am. It’s vacation time thanks to my friends Thierry and Marcia.’
Porizkova stayed at the exclusive Hermosa-Hills villas run by Beauty Pie founder Marcia Kilgore’s husband, Thierry Boué.
Costa Rica has become a happy place for the mother of two, who traveled there in early 2020 when she was just months into mourning her late husband.
‘I don’t know what it is about being here, but my anxiety drops to nearly undetectable, and I feel like I get to pause all the stress of life,’ she captioned a photo of herself lounging at the resort in cream bikini.
‘The minute I leave, it all comes rushing in again, but aaah, I can live for those moments of peace. I’m so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to come here,’ she added. ‘And for good friends who give me a hand when I need it.’
Porizkova seemed to have had an incredible time in Costa Rica, where she soaked up the sun, watched the wildlife from her villa, and dined on local fruit.

If you’ve got it… Porizkova flaunted her figure in a nude selfie that was posted to her Instagram earlier this month, joking that she snapped it because she was ‘bored’
She shared a number of bikini photos as well as videos of herself frolicking in the ocean and posing underneath a waterfall in the jungle.
In one clip, she can be seen running through the waves in an electric blue bikini
‘Here’s my Baywatch moment! Always wanted to do this in slow-mo, but I thought instead I post the real version, me TRYING to look like a Baywatch babe,’ she wrote.
‘It’s no secret to my friends that I hate running. I have some arthritis in my hips (so much for having the body of a thirty-year-old) and running isn’t exactly comfortable. Also, I need to run for a reason, like AWAY from a bear or TO a great sample sale.’
Before leaving Costa Rica, she posted a photo of herself waiting at the Tambor Airport. She revealed she was flying to New York City for one day and then Los Angeles.
The day before she announced her split from Sorkin, she shared a photo of herself sporting extensions at a photo shoot.
‘A brief stopover in NYC for a fun job — which, yes, required me to go this sunny blonde. Sunny blonde AND hair extensions,’ she wrote. ‘I keep thinking I look very Scandinavian here. Back to my (not-actual) roots! But I sort of like it. What do you think?’
