Emily Ratajkowski Says Being Sexy Makes It Hard to Get Serious Roles

Emily Ratajkowski says that being a “sexy actress” has become a disadvantage for her while trying to land serious acting roles.

The 24-year-old model and actress is known for her roles in Gone Girl, We Are your Friends, the “Blurred Lines” music video, and for playing herself in the Entourage movie.

“It’s an interesting paradox. If you’re a sexy actress it’s hard to get serious roles. You get offered the same thing that they’ve seen you in,” Emily told Es magazine. “People are like sheep and they’re like ‘Oh, that’s what she does well.’”

“What’s so dumb is that women are 50 percent of the population and they want to spend money to see movies where they’re portrayed as three-dimensional characters,” she added.

    No dear, being a sexy actress has nothing to do with you not getting roles. It’s when you take off all your clothes and spread out your p*ssy for all to continually see. Over and over again.

    oh look, another ‘hot’ actress complaining that being a self-described sex symbol is so dififcult. boohoo

    Being untalented is why you don’t get quality roles, hon.

  • Little Paper Stars

    It has nothing to do with you being a bad actress then…

    True talk… preach on it…

    Charlize Theron as Aileen Wuornos alone disproves her theory. But if she needs more proof Halle and Angelina have played a wide array of characters, both sexy and serious. It probably has more to do with her acting ability than looks.

    Maybe you just aren’t that good an actress.

    Jared steals everything from TMZ and DailyMail and calls it a day. Nice job.

    There are bunches of three-dimensional, deep roles for women.
    You just don’t get them when your acting skills begin and end at stripping down and parading around naked.

    Best to keep on auditioning for more serious roles. Who knows, you might get picked soon!

  • Rose Ryan

    When will these women get over themselves?

  • MollyBD

    Whut? If these young plastic women are serious about acting, they should shut up and work on getting good roles. Stop complaining about how they are too pretty or too sexy to get good roles. If you can act, go for it.

  • Sweet Cheeks

    She was cringe worthy in ‘Gone Girl’. Her enormous ego is the only three dimensional thing about her…smh.

  • girl93

    Or maybe because you are not a good actress…lol she thinks she is Meryl Streep

    It’s even worse when you’re sexy and untalented.
