Emily Ratajkowski QuotesEmily O'Hara Ratajkowski is an American model and actress. Born in London and raised in San Diego, Ratajkowski first appeared on the cover of the March 2012 issue of the erotic magazine treats!, which led to her appearing in two music videos – Robin Thicke’s "Blurred Lines" (the number-one song of 2013 in several countries) and Maroon 5's "Love Somebody".
That’s the one thing that’s funny about going from modeling to acting. In modeling, you’re supposed to think about what you look like all the time. When you’re in front of the camera, if you’re not considering that, God knows what the pictures will look like. With acting, you have to completely forget it.
I started modeling when I was – not older, but not 12. I have a mom who’s a feminist, she’s an English professor, an intellectual. She really gave me the equipment to understand that you can celebrate yourself without putting yourself down or needing to apologize for the way you look. I think that attitude is really crucial for a model.
