Since then, the brunette beauty has graced the silver screen with her sex appeal — playing Ben Affleck‘s insatiable mistress in Gone Girl and Zac Efron‘s love interest in the disappointing DJ movie We Are Your Friends.
But according to the 24-year-old, her sexiness is a double edged sword!
In an interview with Evening Standard, Ratajkowski revealed she would love to play more three-dimensional characters, but her sexiness makes it “hard” for her to snag serious roles! She explained:
“It’s an interesting paradox. If you’re a sexy actress it’s hard to get serious roles. You get offered the same thing that they’ve seen you in. People are like sheep and they’re like ├óΓé¼╦£Oh, that’s what she does well.'”
Despite being a total knockout, the actress asserts it’s “important” to her to fight for smarter roles and play characters with substance.
“What’s so dumb is that women are 50 per cent of the population and they want to spend money to see movies where they’re portrayed as three-dimensional characters.”
Though the self-described feminist acknowledges her plight is pretty esoteric, she isn’t staying silent on the subject, adding:
“The truth of the matter is no one wants to hear me talk about this stuff. Definitely the men who are casting films don’t want to hear it, but I just can’t not ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I’m angry.”
Well, we gotta give her props for speaking her mind — which apparently is just as well developed as the rest of her body!
But doesn’t EVERYONE get typecast as what they’ve already done? And not everyone has “looking good naked” to get their foot in the door…
Do U agree with Emily’s remarks?
