Emily Ratajkowski thinks her good looks are hindering her acting ambitions.
Emily, who is probably best known for starring in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video, claims she was told she was “too pretty” for some roles.
The “Gone Girl” star and bikini model auditioned for the part of Masha in a new film adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s ‘The Seagull’ and really wanted the part.
But she told she was ”too pretty for the role” and has had a hard time landing roles.
Honestly, she is beautiful but a bit less attractive with being so conceited.
Emily stated, “I have some serious criteria for what I’m looking for in a role, which has really f**ked me. The ones that I really want have to be a really interesting script and a story and usually the girl is ugly.”
Ratajkowski also claims the reason she wasn’t hired for the lead in the upcoming film of Philip Roth’s novel ‘American Pastoral’ is because she wasn’t ”weird-looking enough”.
Emily, 24, explained, ”Again, I think I did a great job in the audition and they were very interested, but again – not weird-looking enough.”
The 24-year-old model thinks the movie industry is scared to cast a pretty female in quirky roles.
She told GQ magazine, “When people Google my name they see this bikini sex symbol kind of thing and they’re scared to cast me as anything but that. So I’ m taking a long and, I hope, high road of basically waiting for the parts that I’m most excited about, which can be really annoying.”
Or it could be she’s just not great of an actress?
