Emily Ratajkowski gets radical for the June 2018 issue of Marie Claire US, on newsstands May 17th. From mastering social media to calling for social change, the outspoken actress and model has always been guided by what felt true to her. And she’s inspiring young women to claim ownership of their own bodies, sexuality, and agency.
On being taken seriously in Hollywood: “It’s actually something I’ve thought about a lot without ever saying seriousness in my head. I care a lot. I think I freak people out sometimes going into meeting with Hollywood producers…with f*cking guns blazing. I had something to prove, and it had very little to do with my acting ability or the way I looked. It was about the Take me seriously. Look me in the eye.”
On body confidence: “Boobs are funny. They hurt sometimes, and sometimes they’re the thing that makes me feel most powerful. They’re a key to my sexuality. They’re all those things.”
On marriage and making her own decisions: “People came after my marriage, like, ‘Wow. I give it three weeks.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ No one can take women seriously on any choices that they make, especially if they’re unique to them and they don’t play into the way we think women should get married. It’s a constant writing-off.”
