The 26-year-old model and actress believes her large chest has been holding her back when it comes to nabbing acting jobs.


Emily Ratajkowski has spent much of her professional life as a model, appearing in magazines like treats! and Sports Illustrated, as well as participating in numerous fashion shows. However, following her appearance in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" music video back in 2013, Ratajkowski has been acting in more projects, including the upcoming Cruise.

“There’s this thing that happens to me: ‘Oh, she’s too sexy.’ It’s like an anti-woman thing, that people don’t want to work with me because my boobs are too big,” Ratajkowski, 26, tells Harper’s Bazaar Australia for their August issue.

She added, “They’re a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue?”

Ratajkowski, who, since she brought it up, wears a size 32C bra, according to a report, said she believes women can be both feminist and the object of sexual desire.

But people in the workplace and critics on social media just don’t understand her special breed of “feminism,” she said.

The model's reveal came in reference to a 2016 photo she posted with Kim Kardashian. After they posed nude together in a bathroom and shared the photo on social media, the pair faced backlash, prompting Ratajkowski to defend herself.

"However sexual our bodies may be, we need to have the freedom as women to choose when & how we express our sexuality," she wrote on Twitter at the time.

A few months later, she posed nude while straddling a white horse for a racy Harper’s Bazaar article titled, “Emily Ratajkowski’s Naked Ambition.”

“A woman can be seeking attention and also make a statement.They don’t need to be mutually exclusive,” she said at the time.

You can see Emily Ratajkowski back on the big screen when Cruise is released sometime later this year, and her other upcoming projects include In Darkness and Welcome Home.
