The video also included topless dancing models Elle Evans and Jessi M’Bengue.
But neither has seen their career skyrocket quite like Ratajkowski’s.
The 24-year-old British-born Californian was featured in the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. And it launched her budding movie career. Her first role was a small part in Ben Affleck’s movie “Gone Girl.”
“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,” she tells British GQ in the September issue.
“So I’m taking a long and I hope, high road of basically wanting parts that I’m most excited about, which can be really… annoying.”
So, forget about the video already. “Now it’s the bane of my existence,” she explains.
“When anyone comes up to me about ‘Blurred Lines,’ I’m like, ‘Are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?'” she told the UK edition of InStyle magazine.
Make no mistake, it’s not about the nudity. She’s totally comfortable in her own skin.
“It’s weird to me that the reaction to a woman’s naked body is so controversial in our culture,” she said.
“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.
These days, Emily is making inroads as an actress. She makes an appearance in the movie, “Entourage,” based on the hit HBO series, and stars opposite Zac Efron in “We Are Your Friends.”
Her latest picture is a Guy Ritchie film, “Knights Of the Roundtable: King Arthur.” It stars Jude Law, Charlie Hunnam and Eric Bana.
