Paulina Porizkova ruled the catwalks in the 1980s, but the still gorgeous model says she no longer gives young men whiplash.

"Nothing ages as poorly as a beautiful woman's ego," the 45-year-old Czech told the New York Post. "When you have used your beauty to get around, it's like having extra cash in your back pocket.

"I was so used to walking down the street and having the young guys passing by at least give me a flicker of a look. But once you're over 40, you become invisible. You're a brick in the building and it's sad. It just feels like the sun went down a little bit. It got a little cloudy outside."

The longtime wife of Cars frontman Ric Ocasek had harsh words for some of her fellow supermodels, especially Naomi Campbell.

"I have nothing kind to say about Naomi," says Porizkova. "When she was starting out, she was the most obsequious a-- kisser there was, and two years later, she was like, 'I don't know your name.'"

She doesn't have unkind things to say about reigning runway queen Gisele Bundchen, but warns that now that she's made being a mom a priority, she is "already a goner" in the fashion world.

Porizkova has resisted plastic surgery, and says other contemporary beauties should have, too.

"Nicole [Kidman] is my pet peeve, I swear," says Porizkova. "She and Madonna used to be so gorgeous and sexy."

The surgically transformed Janice Dickinson was "one of the most beautiful girls you've ever seen in your whole life," says Porizkova. "Now she looks like a transvestite."
