According to Emily Ratajkowski herself, she’s very cognizant of the fact that her beauty has opened doors for her that otherwise would’ve remained closed. These days, although she still portrays the look of the confident model on social media and on the catwalk Ratajkowski is a bit ashamed of her profession and overall upbringing. At least that’s what she’s claiming in her new book which is titled “My Body”. The book features a collection of essays written by Emily Ratajkowski herself. It contains shocking revelations, like the time that she was allegedly groped on the set of “Blurred Lines”. Also, it features essays on empowerment and body shaming. Essentially Ratajkowski poured out all of her childhood trauma in the book. Perhaps most shocking of all is the way she paints her mom in the book. They’ve certainly had their differences over the years.
Emily Ratajkowski Describes Her Existence As Glue For Her Parent’s Relationship
We forgot to mention love & relationships as another theme that Ratajkowski covers in the book.

As she mentioned that she felt from an early age that she was the “glue” that held her parent’s marriage together. From what she writes it can be implied that she felt her mom got pregnant to tie down her dad. Emily writes,

From what we are able to gather the model isn’t exactly super happy about the fact that her beauty has taken her places. Saying that she feels real empowerment has really come her way through these essays and not necessarily through what she’s done in her career. In continuing to air out some of her mom issues, she mentions in the book that it really bothers her essentially how proud her own mother is of her beauty. Especially since her mom sees Emily’s beauty as a reflection of herself. This is how Ratajkowsi puts it,
“My mother seems to hold the way my beauty is affirmed by the world like a mirror, reflecting back to her a measure of her own worth,” She then goes on to tell a story to justify what she’s saying writing,
“A friend of mine from college wrote on Facebook that he’d seen your recent magazine cover, he said, ‘No surprise Kathleen’s daughter is beautiful! But she’s not as gorgeous as you, Kathy. No one compares to you.’ “
