Emily Ratajkowski: My Sexy image is about survival, not self expression



Emily appeared on one of the cover of British "GQ".

-Ratajkowski:"I think, for me,the way I use my image as a model and capitalize off of it has been very much about survival,rather than a representation of who I am. modeling was an amazing way to make money and gain stability."

-Ratajkowski on perceptions."People saying you can't do all these things ,It taught me a lot about sexism and misogyny in the world,because the idea of a woman who looks a certain way or presents herself in a certain way, can't talk about politics or read books? Ridiculous. I had mentioned I liked reading in an interview , and in the piece, the journalist said his girlfriend asked "Do you really think she's read all those books'? I mean that's sexist.It just goes to show how deep our ideas about woman run"

-Ratajkowski on her own assumptions"I realized I made assumptions about Demi Moore.I definitely wrote her off a bit, as an actress because she was so sexy,because she had that body. And I'm Em Rata so that's seriously ironic.It just goes to show how deeply internalized misogyny is."
