Emily Ratajkowski explains the dark side of why she left the acting industry so soon
People who don’t realize how pervasive harassment against women is often don’t get that Emily Ratajkowski is one of the most beautiful women in the world. There’s no need to treat the supermodel any differently than you would any other human person. And she knew the Hollywood industry’s perception of her the moment she stepped foot in there. Studio executives and casting directors often see Emily Ratajkowski for nothing more than her good looks and refuse to look past them.
However, because of her public persona in the entertainment sector, Ratajkowski’s situation has received extra attention. Those befuddled viewers saw her topless and dancing in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video, and they immediately found her sexually desirable. The world of Hollywood is revealed to be one that is both shallow and resistant to change. This has been the case since the beginning of the Hollywood industry, and it doesn’t look like it will alter significantly over the next few years. No one can be themselves in terms of their sexuality without fear of ridicule. Because of this, Emily decided to leave her job.
To quote Ratajkowski’s interview with the Los Angeles Times: “I didn’t feel like, ‘Oh, I’m an artist performing and this is my outlet.’ I felt like a piece of meat who people were judging, saying, ‘Does she have anything else other than her [breasts]?’ 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. 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.”
