Paulina Porizkova has revealed that new boyfriend Aaron Sorkin has invited her to this year’s Oscars for their second date.
In a New York Times profile, Porizkova revealed her new lover Aaron Sorkin, who she called a “ great kisser, ” suggested going public at one of the biggest showbiz events of the year.
The surprising combination of the A-List pair made a huge impression at last month’s ceremony at Union Station in Los Angeles – and Porizkova revealed she was nervous about making things official at such a big event.
“This will take me off the market a little bit,” she told Sorkin, who won an Oscar for his 2009 Facebook biopic The Social Network.
“Okay,” he replied.
The much-publicized date comes less than two years after Porizkova husband Ric Ocasek, frontman of rock band The Cars, died unexpectedly months after doctors discovered lung cancer at an early stage.
Now 56, the writer and model says she’s picking up the pieces after her 30-year-old husband’s death in September 2019.
Porizkova describes the gruesome moment when she discovered his body while bringing him a cup of coffee into their house.

She said that after finding him dead, she intended to calm down and comfort her children who were downstairs, but she collapsed instead.

“Instead, my legs gave out, literally gave out,” she told the Times. I crawled down two flights of stairs on my elbows. It was the most damn thing. I just sobbed. I didn’t even say anything. I just crawled down on all fours and my son saw me and screamed and just ran upstairs. ‘
The couple went through a divorce at the time of his death and the next day she learned that she had recently been written out of his will.
Porizkova said the first sign of trouble came when Ocasek hired a notoriously tough divorce attorney, despite claiming they parted ways amicably.
She says he told her not to worry when she expressed concerns about the appointment.
Ocasek’s sons from his first marriage were also not recognized, while her sons and two other stepsons were the main beneficiaries leading to conflict within the family.
“He messed things up with the will thing,” she told the Times. ‘That was so mean to pretend to us as a family, because we are a fairly close family and that is not his job, nobody got away from it happy.
“Not the ones who were belittled, nor the ones who supposedly won the lottery. It just puts everyone in really awkward situations that we’re still trying to figure out. ‘
In his will, Ocasek wrote that his wife was not entitled to her legal marital portion of the estate “because she abandoned me.”
She is currently in litigation with Mr Ocasek’s estate, Porizkova told the Times.

Born in Czechoslovakia in the Soviet era in 1965, Porizkova fled to Sweden at the age of three to escape the Warsaw Pact, a military alliance of communist nations in Eastern Europe that make up her homeland of Czechoslovakia.
After starting modeling, she moved to New York and became a top model after gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated 1984 swimwear issue.
Since her husband’s death, she has sold the house they shared and moved into a rented two-bedroom duplex in Chelsea with a garden and a master bedroom suite that she called her “sex den.”
The suite has a piano and contains a full-length portrait of Porizkova with her face in profile and the naked body partially obscured by a draped scarf.
The mother of two is now known as an open book on social media – candid about aging, grief and mental illness.
