Oh, the perils of being young and beautiful.

Actress and model Emily Ratajkowski told the London Evening Standard that being regarded as a “sexy” actress has its drawbacks.

“It’s an interesting paradox. If you’re a sexy actress it’s hard to get serious roles. You get offered the same thing they’ve seen you in,” she said. “People are like sheep and they’re like ‘Oh, that’s what she does well’. What’s so dumb is that women are 50 per cent of the population and they want to spend money to see movies where they’re portrayed as three-dimensional characters.”

And Ratajkowski, who became famous for dancing naked in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video, had a thing or two to say about feminism as well.

“Every woman, whether or not they’re comfortable with the term feminist, probably wants to be equal to men and that is fundamentally what feminism is about,” she told the Evening Standard. “I think that there is a stigma attached to the word, but to me it means talking about the way we look at women and how we judge women differently than how we judge men; also it is about paid maternity leave, equal pay for women.”

In fact she still cannot get past Piers Morgan asking Kim Kardashian to stop posting nude pictures and start acting in a manner more becoming of a mother of two.

“[He was] talking about the fact that Kim is 34 and a mother and that we’re over seeing her in a sexual light, which I had a lot of problems with,” Ratajkowski said. “He also implied that her husband [Kanye West] was writing her tweets, as if she isn’t capable of writing them herself, which to me is incredibly sexist.”

She told the Evening Standard that after she defended Kardashian the reality TV star sent her flowers.

“Then we decided to do a selfie with our tops off [sticking up her middle finger at] the camera, which I think speaks for itself,” she said. “I tweeted about what the idea was behind how women need to have space to be sexual.”

Because nothing says that you are a strong woman like objectifying yourself.
