Emily Ratajkowski Talks “Blurred Lines”
Ratajkowski is currently making her transition from model to actress, with her first major role in a feature film in We Are Your Friends. Ratajkowski may want to be taken seriously as an actress, but there’s one modeling gig that just won’t go away — her role in Robin Thicke’s controversial “Blurred Lines” video.
While Ratajkowski has stood up for the video in the past, specifically defending the video’s use of female nudity, she recently revealed that she is sick of talking about it.
“I wasn’t into the idea at all at first. I think I came off as a bit annoyed in the video. 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 told InStyle UK.
That said, Ratajkowski is outspoken about owning the nudity she’s done onscreen in both “Blurred Lines” and Gone Girl. “It’s weird ot 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,” she added.
