Emily Ratajkowski is speaking out about her famous figure and the 26-year-old model believes that her acting career is inhibited because of how large her breasts are.

The Gone Girl star opened up during an interview with Harper's Bazaar Australia in which she said that Hollywood higher-ups have snubbed her for parts due to her hourglass shape.

“There’s this thing that happens to me: ‘Oh, she’s too sexy,'” she said. “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?”

Emily rose to fame in Robin Thicke's racy music video for "Blurred Lines," in which she appeared completely topless. She says that a woman's figure is something to be "celebrated," and not to be made an "issue".

“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?”

In the past, Emily has put her curvy figure on full display in a number of scantily-clad pictures on social media. Most famously, she posed beside Kim Kardashian for a topless selfie that went viral on the Internet.

Because of the photos, Emily has cultivated an image as the object of sexual desire for many of her fans. However, the brunette beauty says that women can be both feminists and sex symbols. She also says that her boyfriend, Jeff Magid, understands the situation.

“My boyfriend is super confident and was raised by his mum, so he also genuinely loves and admires women. Not just ‘Oh yeah, women are cool.’ He deeply loves and respects women, so he loves what I’m all about.”

Ratajkowski is well aware of the way some people think of her when she posts skin-filled snaps. During an interview with Glamour, the Vogue cover girl addressed the backlash.

"I've been called an attention w**** so often that I had almost gotten used to it," she wrote. "And as women we are accused of seeking attention more than men are, whether for speaking out politically, as I did, for dressing a certain way, or for even posting a selfie."

She continued by saying: "Our culture has a double standard that runs so deep, many women have actually built up an automatic defense - attempting to be a step ahead of potential critics by making sure we have 'real' reasons for anything we say or do. Often it's men propelling these acts of sexism, but women discount one another too: Think about how many times you've heard a woman say about another woman: 'Oh, she's just doing that for attention.'"
