GQ - Emily Ratajkowski is frustrated. Recently, she went for two film roles that she coveted – and didn’t get either of them. Not that she’s short of job offers, of course: Hollywood’s queuing up to cast her as commercial “hot girl” characters, but they don’t excite her. “I have some serious criteria for what I’m looking for in a role, which has really f***ed me,” she says. “The ones that I really want have to be a really interesting script and story and usually the girl is ugly.” First there was the part of Masha (“I love her, she’s the original badass”) in a new adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull. The feedback? “Too pretty for the role.” The other was a supporting part in the upcoming film of Philip Roth’s novel American Pastoral. “Again, I think I did a great job in the audition and they were very interested, but again – not weird-looking enough.” The problem she faces, she says, is that Hollywood loves to pigeonhole. “When people google my name they see this bikini-sex-symbol kind of thing and they’re scared to cast me as anything but that. So I’m taking a long and, I hope, high road of basically waiting for the parts that I’m most excited about, which can be really… annoying.”
Oh no, poor Emily! Too hot and sexy for the movie rolls she wants. UGH! Life must be so frustrating for her. Just too attractive all the time. Man. Sucks to see such talent go to waste because her tits are so awesome. Because if there is one thing I know about Hollywood, it’s that attractive people never get ahead. They just get turned down for roles left and right for being too hot, that’s why all actors and actresses are ugly.
The good news is she likes giving head, so that’s cool.
She’s happy to clarify some particulars of her position. She disagrees, for instance, with the view of some other feminists that giving men oral sex is demeaning. “I had a male friend who said, ‘I don’t get blow jobs because I think it’s offensive [to women].’ That view is disgusting – it’s empowering! Being in love and acting sexually on it in a million different ways is empowering.”
Also in the article she bashes the Blurred Lines video, you know, the thing that made her famous to begin with. It’s a pretty funny article, her saying how she doesn’t want to be known as the hot girl, but she includes a photoshoot with all sorts of hot pics. That’s just girl logic for you.
