Emily Ratajkowski: Sexy? Me?

Emily Ratajkowski has revealed her body hang-ups.

The model-turned-actress has a figure envied the world over and has shown off her curves in Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines video, in which she appears topless.

Emily wasn't fazed by baring her assets in the clip and has never felt the need to defend her actions.

"It's weird to me that the reaction to a woman's naked body is so controversial in our culture," she told British magazine InStyle. "My mom 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."

Although she doesn't necessarily regret the video, despite admitting she wasn't into the idea at first, Emily wonders why people are so obsessed with it over two years after its release.

The brunette beauty still models alongside her budding acting career and often posts raunchy shots on her Instagram. But that's not to say she's without body hang-ups.

"There are a few things I don't like about my body, like that part of my thigh beneath my butt," she pointed out. "But my friends will say I'm crazy and I know it's just my perception. You can't beat up on yourself."

Emily is seen in more modest looks for the photoshoot accompanying her interview, wearing outfits such as a sequined long-sleeved leotard and a black pinafore with a white blouse underneath.

Speaking about her style, the 24-year-old describes her look as a wannabe French girl and makes an effort to incorporate retro pieces into her outfits.

However, Emily doesn't feel as confident in the beauty department.

"Hair and make-up always kill me. I have really big features and a lot of make-up artists get carried away and make me look like a drag queen," she sighed.
