Way to ruin it! Padma Lakshmi shared a gorgeous photo of herself looking stunningly perfect while running on the beach on Thursday, Jan. 29 — but then went ahead and directed all eyes towards her bikini bottoms.

“My friend claims it looks like I have a penis in this pic,” she captioned the throwback snap. “One guess to whether he's gay or not… #onhismind #tbt.”

Although her bikini bottoms did look a bit odd, her fans didn’t seem to mind. One follower commented, “Who cares?! You're freakin hot!!!!” while another wrote, “@padmalakshmi YOU are a goddess!!! Penis or not lol Love it.”

During an interview with Fitness magazine, the Top Chef host — who is constantly surrounded by food for her job and admits to going up two sizes each season — revealed she works hard for her bod.

Her other healthy habits? “I drink a homemade cleanse of two ounces of pure cranberry juice, six ounces of either green tea or plain water, one Emergen-C Vitamin C packet, and a teaspoon of fiber powder three times a day,” she dished. “I also drink two to three liters of water a day.”
