Model from ‘Blurred Lines’ video calls it the ‘bane of my existence’

Emily Ratajkowski also says it's 'weird' that 'a woman's naked body is so controversial in our culture'

Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski has discussed her appearance in Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines’ video, the role that saw her rise to prominence.

Ratajkowski appeared in the clip, which garnered much press attention, in 2013, before later appearing in David Fincher film Gone Girl last year, as well as Zac Efron’s new EDM movie We Are Your Friends.

Speaking to InStyle Magazine recently, Ratajkowski said that she “wasn’t into the idea [of the ‘Blurred Lines’ video] at all at first”, adding that she “came off as a bit annoyed in the video”.


She added, “Now, it’s the bane of my existence. When anyone comes up to me about ‘Blurred Lines’, I’m like, are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?”

Ratajkowski also spoken about the amount of nudity in the clip, saying, “It’s weird to me that the reaction to a woman’s naked body is so controversial in our culture.”

“My mum taught me to never apologise for my sexuality. My dad never made me feel embarrassed. I also don’t think I’ve ever had an awareness of my own body as being super-sexual. It was always just my body.”

Meanwhile, a judge recently rejected Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams‘ appeal for a retrial following the ruling that the pair had plagiarised Marvin Gaye while writing ‘Blurred Lines’.

In March, a US jury decided that the 2013 song had copied Gaye’s 1977 single ‘Got To Give It Up’, pointing out the “intrinsic similarity of the works”.
