Actress Emily Ratajkowski, who recently starred in the films We Are Your Friends and Gone Girl, is perhaps still most recognized for her revealing appearance in the music video for Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," and it's starting to annoy her.
Speaking with InStyle UK, Emily revealed that her association with dancing naked in the popular music video is "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?" Emily shared.
The 24-year-old model and actress said that she didn't really want to perform topless in the video, telling the magazine, "I wasn’t into the idea at all at first."
According to Emily, it was because of her reticence that she "came off as a bit annoyed in the video."
However, Emily doesn't seem to be opposed to appearing naked all together. She opened up about nudity, and how she doesn't understand why "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," Emily explained. "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."
Beyond her breakout role in the "Blurred Lines" video, Emily has begun to focus her career on acting, as opposed to modeling, where she got her start. Similarly, Cara Delevingne recently announced that she was going to stop modeling all together and focus on her acting career more intently.
Cara's decision was one Emily could relate to, as she explained to ET in August. "I feel like acting is much more creatively fulfilling and I think Cara is very creative person, as am I, and so, we want more," Emily explained.
