Elle Macpherson has had to eat her words, which is better than popping a pill that tastes like “fungus,” according to her earlier statement. After kind people from Australia to India—including myself—called the model out on her confession in the U.K.’s The Sunday Times that she tosses back powdered rhino horn in a vain (yes, I know) attempt to combat the march of time, Macpherson has had to issue a new statement to the effect that she was only joking about swallowing critically endangered animals’ body parts.
I’d say she owes wildlife one. Meaning, Elle, we’d better not catch you in exotic skins, please.
