You go girl. Emily Ratajkowski is hitting back at her haters. The model defends herself in a new interview with 'Vogue' in which she insists that she can be attractive AND intelligent — at the same time. The model has been branching out into acting, and she seems to be working hard at giving her new career the best shot she can. Though her performances have been largely forgettable, she seems to be getting better at her craft.
There's a lot more to her, and to any attractive person, beyond just their looks, she says in a new Vogue Australia interview. "Everyone reacts to everyone else's physical appearance, and I think that happens more with women," Emily told Vogue Australia. "It's a constant thing where you're proving yourself."
"I think it's sexism," Emily said. "I think in general people don't really want to hear women talk about these kinds of things, and especially women who make money on how they look: they especially resent them using their voice."
Emily acknowledges in the Vogue Australia interview that she has been accused of a more surface-level feminism. "The only argument that I think is sort of interesting is the conversation that somehow I'm playing into a patriarchal society by looking the way I look and capitalising [sic] on my sexiness," the model told Vogue Australia. "But I don't really care if me wearing a crop top is somehow playing into some patriarchy, because it makes me feel good about myself, and I shouldn't be limited on that. Making rules as to what a feminist should look like or wear is insane to me."
Emily seems to be standing her ground against all the haters and the critics that have dismissed her as nothing more than a pretty face and we have to say again, you go girl. Emily Ratajkowski's latest thriller, "Welcome Home" with Aaron Paul is out now.
