I’m so grateful I have modelling and so many other things that I’m doing – because if I didn’t have other ways of making money, I’d be like, ‘OK, I guess I’m doing the bathing-suit-girl role.’ You really have to prove yourself in this industry and I’m very much up for the challenge. It takes a really long time to not only prove yourself, but also prove that you’re more dynamic than just this one part of you that they see.”
The issue seems to be personal to Ratajkowski as while on the cover of the August issue of Harper’s Baazar she mentioned issues with people dismissing her because her boobs were ‘too big.’
Although she rose to public prominence as a model and ‘girl in Blurred Lines video’ she actually enjoyed some success as a teen actress including a stint on iCarly as Tasha, Gibby’s girlfriend.
But after a slew of smaller roles in ‘We are Your Friends’ and ‘The Spoils before Dying’ Ratajkowski looks to be taking over the silver screen in the next year with starring roles in ‘In Darkness’ ‘I Feel Pretty’ and ‘Cruise’ alongside a host famous actors Emily Ratajkowski looks well on her way to the acting A-List.
