Emily Ratajkowski Called Out For Saying She’s ‘Too Sexy’ To Work In Hollywood

Written by Kallie Provencher

Ah, what would we do without our weekly Emily Ratajkowski drama? The swimsuit model is making headlines once again as she complains about being objectified in Hollywood.

The 26-year-old recently did an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Australia in which she states she’s being discriminated against. Emily is literally quoted as saying she’s “too sexy” to land acting roles.

“There’s this thing that happens to me: ‘Oh, she’s too sexy.’ It’s like an anti-woman thing, that people don’t want to work with me because my boobs are too big.”

The model goes on to say there’s nothing wrong with breasts as they should be celebrated.

“What’s wrong with boobs? They’re a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue?”

However, there’s one thing wrong with Emily’s statement: boobs aren’t an issue in Hollywood. Women of all shapes and sizes land high-profile acting gigs all the time. Think Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, and Salma Hayek.

And the online community isn’t buying Ratajkowski’s excuse, either. Readers have left tons of comments on People magazine’s Facebook post in which they call out the model.

Apparently it seems some simply don’t believe Emily is a good actress and that’s why she doesn’t land roles.

“Hmm no honey. you just aren’t a good actress. Christina Hendricks boobs are like 10 times your size and she lands all kinds of gigs.”

“Many actresses have big boobs and everyone wants to work with them. But that’s because they are talented. On the other hand, this girl has no talent and the only way she’s staying remotely relevant is by posting naked photos.”

The last commenter went on to state Emily is constantly posing nude, only to then complain about being objectified because of her body.

“Take yourself seriously if you want other people to do the same. She objectifies herself then complains about being objectified.”

This relates back to another interview Emily did for Glamour magazine in which she states women are often criticized for displaying their sexuality.

“…but women discount one another too: Think about how many times you’ve heard a woman say about another woman, ‘Oh, she’s just doing that for attention.’ We’ve internalized this trope.”

As for the negative backlash on her comments and nude photos? Emily said she doesn’t mind as it only helps make her point.

“I have no problem with the backlash, because I feel it illustrates my point over and over.”

But the issue here isn’t whether or not Emily should pose naked all the time, it’s how she acts after she does so. If she wants to flaunt her body, that’s her prerogative, but she can’t be surprised when the public gets tired of hearing her whine about people only seeing her as big boobs.

In fact, some think it may be Ratajkowski’s attitude on the issue that is keeping her from getting acting roles.

“I’ve seen bigger boobs & they are working consistently .. maybe you need to change your attitude.”

I mean, what would Emily Ratajkowski be without her nude photos and subsequent drama? Just another average swimsuit model.
