UPI- Emily Ratajkowski can thank “Blurred Lines” for her upcoming role in Gone Girl. The 23-year-old model came to fame after she appeared in the Robin Thicke music video in March 2013. Fans and celebrities alike took notice, and her beauty and self-possession helped make her a breakout star. Ratajkowski covers the July issue of GQ, and director David Fincher also spoke to the magazine for the article. The model will appear as Andie Hardy in Gone Girl, a writing student and mistress of Ben Affleck‘s character Nick Dunne. The director reveals that Ratajkowski in “Blurred Lines” was the first thing he and Affleck thought of when they cast the part. “I was talking with Ben and what I wanted for the Andie role was someone who could be incredibly divisive among men and women in the audience,” the director says. “We needed somebody where, at the moment she appears, the women are going, ‘That is unreasonable and despicable.’ And you also have the men going, ‘Yes, but…’ And so Ben said, ‘Yeah, like the girl in the ‘Blurred Lines’ video.'” “She was just incredibly mature,” he lauds. “She wasn’t smitten with being the girl of the moment. She’s no bull[expletive]. If [Dunne’s] gonna ruin [his] life on a 21-year-old, they have to be special, and she was.” Ratajkowski has also landed a role in the Entourage movie for 2015. Gone Girl premieres in theaters October 3.

I get a kick out of the quotes from Affleck in that article.  “She was just incredibly mature” and “She wasn’t smitten with being the girl of the moment” blah blah blah.  Who do you think you’re fooling here, Ben?  Were those quotes for Jennifer Garner’s peace of mind?  Had to be.  Even if she knows what’s happening it’s good to have those quotes out there so Jennifer can at least try and believe Ben.  Anybody with more than half a brain knows exactly why Affleck handpicked Emily Ratajkwoski for this movie and that’s to have awesome movie star sex with her.  That’s all this is and I guarantee that’s what happened.  It’s the perfect plan.  You’re Ben Affleck, you’ve become one of the most powerful men in Hollywood and now you have your pick of the litter.  Good for him.  If I’m in Ben’s position and I see Blurred Lines I’m doing the exact same thing and so are you.  Emily is an awesome pick.  You shower her with compliments about how great she is and then you’re alone with her on site for a few months shooting a movie.  It’d be a travesty if they didn’t have sex but we all know they did.  Point Affleck (and really, a point for Emily too.  Nothing wrong with sleeping your way to the top.  No judgement here).
