Emily Ratajkowski is sick and tired of hearing about Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video. She even goes as far to call it the “bane of my existence.”
Ratajkowski, the model and actress who is currently starring in We Are Your Friends alongside Zac Efron, starred in the video and put on quite a risque performance. Despite all the attention “Blurred Lines” received when it was released three years ago, Emily said the video is the furthest thing from her mind, and she wants everyone to simply get over it already.
“I wasn’t into the idea at all at first. I think I came off as a bit annoyed in the video,” the 24-year-old told InStyle during an exclusive interview for their October issue. “Now, it’s the bane of my existence. When anyone comes up to me about ‘Blurred Lines,’ I’m like, are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?”
Ratajkowski’s appearance in the controversial video transformed her from a barely recognizable model to an actress, who has landed a lead role in David Fincher’s film Gone Girl, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s book, alongside Ben Affleck. She also guest starred in an episode of the television show Entourage.
While she never appeared completely nude in the video, there were scenes where she had very little clothes on. And in Gone Girl, there is no denying that her scenes garnered her a lot of attention. However, Emily says being naked doesn’t bother her, and she doesn’t understand what everyone’s obsession with a woman’s naked body is. She wasn’t posing naked to gain popularity — she is just comfortable in her own body.
“It’s weird to me that the reaction to a woman’s naked body is so controversial in our culture. My mum taught me to never apologize for my sexuality. My dad never made me feel embarrassed. I also don’t think I’ve ever had an awareness of my own body as being super-sexual. It was always just my body,” she explained to the British magazine.
Emily is known for her amazing figure, but even models have their insecurities. Emily’s just happens to be her thighs.
“There are a few things I don’t like about my body, like that part of my thigh beneath my butt. But my friends will say I’m crazy and I know it’s just my perception. You can’t beat up on yourself,” she said.
