Emily RentACatSuit, from the Blurred Lines video and Gone Girl, recently opened up to The Evening Standard’s ES Magazine about what it’s like being a sexy woman who also has a functioning brain in Hollywood. And she’s not happy. She says “I’m mad,” in the interview, so you know she’s serious.
She dives right in with the shocking experience of what she, a sexy actress, is offered in Hollywood:
“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 per cent of the population and they want to spend money to see movies where they’re portrayed as three-dimensional characters. The truth of the matter is no one wants to hear me talk about this stuff. Definitely the men who are casting films don’t want to hear it, but I just can’t not — I’m angry. It’s important to me.”
Emily should really get together with Charlize Theron and start a foundation for the long-suffering gorgeous, sexy people of Hollywood.
Emily went on to say that when she was younger, everyone told her mother that she’d become a model. Emily’s mom didn’t want that for her:
My mum said “no, she’ll be a brain surgeon,” because she didn’t like the idea that I would think that [my appearance] was the only thing that I was going to be valued for.’ At the same time, ‘She always told me never to feel sorry or apologetic or embarrassed by my body, to never apologise for my sexuality.
Both her parents were teachers – her father taught art and her mother taught English, so it’s natural she should follow in their footsteps. Like all kids do, she totally listened to her parents and took to heart the brain surgeon thing by signing to Ford Models at age 14.
Emily also makes sure to remind us all of her incredibly important work and involvement in celebrated feminist icon Kim Kardashian’s Twitter Nudegate. If you’ll remember correctly, jealous, hateful anti-women types like Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz said very mean and not feminist things about Kim simply celebrating her body and right as a woman to show it off and Emily was there to support her. Even going so far as to pose topless with Kim in another tweet. Of this landmark union, she says:
Then we decided to do a selfie with our tops off, flipping off [sticking up her middle finger at] the camera, which I think speaks for itself. I tweeted about what the idea was behind how women need to have a space to be sexual.
And with that, here are pictures of the human version of that Right Said Fred song.
