Martha Stewart nearly broke the internet when she became the oldest model to ever appear
on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s annual Swimsuit edition – she turns 82 years old on August 3rd. In doing so, she surpassed Maye Musk – mother of Elon Musk – who appeared on the cover last year at the age of 74.
In the days since the cover was released, Stewart has received a lot of support from fans and friends as they celebrate her recent achievement – she might be 82 years old, but she looks 30+ years younger. Of course, her stunning appearance was also met with quite a bit of hate and criticism from internet trol
Stewart opened up about those ‘naysayers’ in a recent interview with Variety, which was published on May 16 – the day after her Swimsuit cover was released. She addressed the rumors that she underwent plastic surgery and clapped back at those suggesting her photos were retouched and/or airbrushed.
