Martha Stewart Explains Her Bombshell Pool Selfie: “Was Definitely A Thirst Trap”


Recently, Martha Stewart, who is 78 years old, got fans in a stir when she posted a certain photo to Instagram. She appeared to be in the pool, posing and looking stunning as ever. Fans called the photo a ‘thirst trap,’ which is basically just a sexy photo. She tells Entertainment Tonight that she posted the photo because she “just thought I looked great coming out of [it].”

She also further explains that the selfie was actually an accident at first. “My camera came on backwards, you know, selfie mode, and I looked so nice. The sun was on my face.” She then examined the screen and then thought to herself, “”Oh, that looks pretty,’ so I took the picture. It looked good.”

Fans just loved it!  “Martha is here for a hot girl summer,” one fan writes. Another says, “You have some nerve lookin this HOT at 78 years young 🔥🔥🔥 now lemme get that skin care routine.” The photo was such a success, even other celebrities like Chelsea Handler tried their hand at recreating the photo.

Of course, Stewart responded to this recreation! “Dear Chelsea I’m so happy that you liked my post well enough to emulate it. I do think my pool is a little bit prettier than yours and that my facial expression is a bit more relaxed,” she writes. “Nevertheless you are a beautiful girl and F—ING too young to be emulating me,” she jokes. We can’t help it, we just love thirst trap Martha!
