Emily Ratajkowski: biography
Emily Ratajkowski is the popular model and actress who was named the most desirable women of 2014. The audience noticed the young woman after she starred in the movie Gone Girl and appeared in the TV show Project Runway.
Emily was born on June 7, 1991, in London. The girl’s parents were American, but she also had Irish, Polish, German, and Jewish roots. Soon after the daughter was born, the parents moved to California where Emily spent her childhood. Emily’s mother is a popular writer and English professor. The daughter said her mother was an intellectual and feminist, although the woman herself did not agree with those definitions. Emily’s father is an artist. Thus, Ratajkowski’s strong interest in beauty was determined genetically.
From the early childhood, the would-be model traveled a lot; for some time, she lived in Ireland and Spain. Frequent resettlement and life in new countries did not prevent the girl from finishing school successfully. Later, Ratajkowski entered the University of California but quitted the next year: she made a decision to focus on the modeling career. Besides, she had already a good start.
Few beginning models are as lucky as Emily was. At the age of 14, the agency Ford Models offered her a contract. She signed it and began her professional career.
Emily collaborated with the youth brand Forever 21, Kohl, and Nordstrom. The young beauty did not mind wearing swimsuits and lingerie. In one of her interviews, she said that a naked body was normal and she was not going to hesitate to show it on condition a professional would take pictures.
The woman was fortunate to meet such professionals. Thanks to Tony Duran, editors of the erotic glossy magazine treats! noticed the model and offered her a photo session. The magazine readers liked Emily so much that Ratajkowski’s photos appeared on the magazine cover in 2012. The model’s popularity was growing. Emily became the representative of Carl’s Jr and also collaborated with Nikon.
As the model appeared naked in the music video by Robin Thicke, the whole world started speaking of the beauty.
Later on, the erotic shooting for GQ cover and Sports Illustrated calendar followed. In 2014, Emily became number four in the list of the sexiest women of the planet and was called the most desirable woman.
Emily Ratajkowski dreamed of starring in movies. When she was a teenager, she took part in several performances and realized she liked that. Emily went to auditions but kept receiving the same answer: she could play only a bitchy teen.
Emily was sure she could do more than that and did not give up. First of all, she had a minor role in the short movie Andrew's Alteration: it was necessary to have anything to start with. In 2005, the actress got an episodic role in the series A Year and a Day.
In a while, the model was offered the role of Tasha in the sitcom iCarly; Emily participated in three episodes. This series told the story of 13-year-old Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) who was creating her Internet channel where school students’ videos recorded at home were posted.
In the second half of the 2000s, Emily was busy with modeling. At that period, Project Runway came out; Emily was among the models who advertised the works of 12 designers and competed for $100 thousand for their fashion business. The globally famous model Heidi Klum organized the contest. American designers Laura Bennett, Mychael Knight, and Jeffrey Sebelia appeared in the show. Every round, one participant was leaving the competition.
The role in a 2013 short movie was insignificant. However, the next year brought the full-time thriller Gone Girl where Emily played the main character’s lover Andie Fitzgerald. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike who played the spouses Nick and Amy became her stage partners. Critics positively reviewed the movie; the box office was $370 million.
In 2015, Emily played herself in the comedy Entourage about the actor Vincent (Kevin Connolly) and his friends who challenged Hollywood. The same year, the model played in the mini-series The Spoils Before Dying, the comedy about jazz musicians in the 1950s. Later, the youth music drama We Are Your Friends came out; Emily played Sophie, the friend of DJ Cole (Zac Efron).
Emily Ratajkowski has had several affairs. In 2013, the young woman was often seen with the art director Andrew Dryden. However, at the beginning of 2014, the couple split up. No comments followed.
Emily was not upset for a long time. Soon, journalists noticed she was accompanying the musician Jeff Magid. Several months later, the model confirmed she was dating the man. It is unknown whether the young people are still together.
Emily is not going to marry in the nearest future: she enjoys her youth, fame, and life in general.
The model continues to appear in movies. In 2016, she took part in the comedy series Easy telling the story of young people’s experiments in Chicago. The same year, Emily went to Russia to star in Dima Bilan’s music video “Inseparable.”
In 2018, the thriller In Darkness was released. As the story runs, the piano player Sofia (Natalie Dormer) accidentally witnesses a murder. The melodrama Cruise and thriller Welcome Home starring the model are going to be released.
In fall 2017, Ratajkowski posted the Inamorata Swim photos on her Instagram; she was wearing several alluring swimsuits and also posed topless. Later, to promote her own swimsuit line, the model had a nude photo session in Nicaragua where she had a vacation. There was also the video where she danced a hot dance; it had more than 6 million views in the first week.
