Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski told Harper’s Bazaar Australia for their July issue that she's been subjected to comments about her breasts that she takes to understand that their size is preventing her from being hired for jobs.

“There’s this thing that happens to me: ‘Oh, she’s too sexy’,” she told the magazine. “It’s like an anti-woman thing, that people don’t want to work with me because my boobs are too big. What’s wrong with boobs? They’re a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue?”

Ratajkowski — perhaps best known for her role as a topless model in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" music video — is an outspoken feminist and seems to defend women's sexuality at every possible turn.

In March 2016, Ratajkowski sent out a blistering tirade on Twitter, railing against being sexualized by the "patriarchy."

“We are more than just our bodies, but that doesn’t mean we have to be shamed for them or our sexuality,” she wrote. “Even if being sexualized by society’s gaze is demeaning, there must be a space where women can still be sexual when they choose to be.”

Ratajkowski also previously claimed that her "sexy" looks prevented her from being a big star 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,” she said in a 2016 issue of ES Magazine.
