Emily Ratajkowski’s bedtime routine involves getting naked & watching ‘GoT’


Emily Ratajkowski covers the new issue of Harper, the sort of mini-Harper’s Bazaar magazine. It’s like a special issue, I guess. Emily stars in the new Zac Efron movie We Are Your Friends, which looks pretty terrible. I saw the trailer for it ahead of The Man From UNCLE and I really couldn’t believe that A) they made that story into a movie and B) that Zac Efron is still trying to convince us that he can be a lead film actor. Why do they keep trying to convince us that Efron is a thing?! Anyway, stupid rant is stupid. Emily plays “the girl” in the film and for that honor, she got to guest-edit this issue of Harper. You can see her shoot here. You can see her “day in the life” feature here. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Emily’s style icon: “I was 12 the first time I watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The sequence where Paul Newman wakes up Katharine Ross and takes her for a bike ride, set to ‘Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,’ became my cinematic dreamscape. I loved how she looked in that long white dress, contrasted with her hats and slouchy button-ups later on. Katharine has a quiet ferocity; an honest, dynamic personality rare in female characters.”

Her nighttime routine: “I chug water and take off my makeup. I don’t sleep with clothes on, so I just get naked, get under the covers, put on Game of Thrones, and relax.”

On her love of eating out: “Dinner is my time to be social and catch up with people. I love this Italian restaurant downtown called Bestia. It’s kind of fun, and they have good cocktails and wine. If I’m trying to be a little healthier, there’s Café Gratitude downtown. There’s amazing sushi at this tiny place called Mako in Little Tokyo. And I also love uni. Anything with uni in it is great for me.”

[From Harper]

Yeah, she’s not the most exciting person in the world. Is it strange that I like her more than that other model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne? First of all, Emily isn’t dumping on her modeling career – she still gets modeling work and if anything, her forays into acting have made her a more in-demand model. Also, I kind of love a woman whose bedtime routine involves a glass of water, being naked and watching Game of Thrones. That alone made me love her.

    So. Much. Try.

    • jaygee says:

      Yep. The claim that she loves to get naked and watch GoT is the essential “cool girl” answer. Even if it’s true, it’s a response that was designed to elicit male approval/attention.

      • Luna says:

        Why do you think that? Is it because she is pretty? If a “not so pretty ” women have said this, would you have made the same comment?

  2. Liberty says:

    Oh oh! Her Nighttime Routine quote may sound like a love-warble to Mister Harvey Weinstein.

    Screen your calls tonight, girl!

  3. Lilacflowers says:

    Is there any other way to watch GOT?

  4. Abbott says:

    That bedtime routine is very Cool Girl.

  5. DianaM. says:

    Pretty clothes, very 70s!

  6. Kiddo says:

    That first outfit is very 70s and Amal Clooney.

    • littlestar says:

      Yeah. I personally am really liking the 70s fashion comeback for the fall. Bell bottom jeans seem to be a big thing right now.

      Still don’t like her though.

      • Isabelle says:

        Give me the bell bottoms over the skinny pants. Have a larger bottom than top & the skinny pants, can’t wear them at all. If bell bottoms are done right most people can wear them.

  7. Mintessence (the original Minty) says:

    Emily is a one-trick pony. She’s usually nude and showing off her great rack or talking about being nude. I think her face is harsh. The resting bitch face doesn’t help.

    As irritating as Cara can be, at least she has a noticeable personality.

  8. georgia says:

    She’s pretty and she wears her big breast better than Kate Upton.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      I have been wearing mine as earmuffs, am I doing it wrong?

      Also cause someone has to do it


      • kai says:

        Lol. You need to wear them like shoulder pads, 80s style!

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        @ Kai yes! It’s what Joan Collins would want.

      • georgia says:

        LMAO!!! I meant she dresses her breast better than Kate Upton and she never looks uncomfortable with her breast. Kate Upton is always trying to fit her tits into clothes they don’t belong in. I think she should try to wear them as ear muffs. Maybe shoulder pads lol.

    • Isabelle says:

      Kate has a box shape & her boobs make her look a lot larger than she is, shes thin but the girls make her look boxy. This girl has the true curve shape

  9. Franca says:

    I find sleeping naked a bit, I don’t know, unhygienic?

    • Jen43 says:

      Haha. I have never understood sleeping naked. What if there is an earthquake in the middle of the night?

      • kai says:

        I sleep walked only ONCE in my 30+ years of existence (got up and got into my flatmate’s bed, she thought it was hilarious and didn’t mind) and ever since I only sleep fully clothed, because I don’t want to end up walking around topless…

      • Zigggy says:

        OMG, every time I try to sleep naked I wake up in a panic- scary!

  10. Kitten says:

    Sorry Kaiser but Zac Efron is still more of a “thing” than this chick is.

  11. jammypants says:

    I’m going to be a bit more positive and say that this shoot is flattering for her. I like the styling.

  12. Tacos and TV says:

    As much as I love a “Cool Girl”, I can’t stand a “Thirsty, Try Hard, Notice Me because I’m the Coolest Girl Amongst the Cool Girls, Cool Girl.” Of course she is going to say get naked, because we all know she has the body of a goddess, so to insert that is like “Yeah, I’m not trying to be sexy, but you know what I look like in clothes, so now you can pretend what it’s like when they are off.” I used to dig her and check our her insta page, but now my side eye is on you, Emily!

  13. JenniferJustice says:

    I think she’s channelling Cameron Diaz from her decades of “I’m the cool girl that every guy wants for a girlfriend.” The fishing for compliments and setting herself up for praise from the dudes is majorly tiring. I sleep in the buff, but if I were being interviewed, I would not feel the need to mention it. The only reason these predictable try-hards do mention it is for a reaction from men. It screams of needy reassurance. Reminds me of the former highschool classmate of my husband on their class website, who finds it necessary to FaceBook post every time she buys a bikini or some such attempt at garnering sexual innuendo from the male population. But you know what never fails? Right when my husband and I are saying, here we go again with the try-hard, some numbnut responds “pics please!” and there you go! That’s why they do it, because as predictable as the try-hard is, the reaction they seek is just as predictable and they get exactly what they’re hoping for. Stupid.

  14. Karen says:

    Got to keep her sex-symbol by mentioning she lives naked. It’s a pretty basice move.

    Also, I laughed so hard at harpers image. Legs spread apart, with a big line pointing up to her crotch from the “p”? Umm.

  15. lila fowler says:

    She must be trying to get Fincher’s attention with that Butch Cassidy stuff.

  16. sx55 says:

    She kind of looks like a bird. Avian-like. Like Anne Hathaway.

    • Franca says:

      Anne Hathaway is beautiful. Emily has a nice body and that’s it. Her features are very eagle-like.

      • Kitten says:

        My boyfriend thinks Anne Hathaway is “hideous”.

        EDIT: I don’t agree with him. At all.

      • Kiddo says:

        My BF doesn’t find her appealing either and he thinks Swift is odd. I think it has to do with an asexual sort of presence, maybe for hetero guys? Like there’s attractiveness, but no ‘umph’ or ‘it’ in sexual appeal or uniqueness/stand-outness in personality.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah I think a parallel could be drawn between Swift and Hathaway re: lack of sex appeal.

        But his ultimate crush is Jenifer Lawrence, who I think is pretty but not stunning at all. Then again, she does have that *it* factor.

      • perplexed says:

        I could kind of see the personalities of Anne and Taylor being a bit off-putting to people, which would then affect the perception of their looks. I thought Anne was really pretty …until she started trying so hard to be well-liked. Her need for approval from masses of people has always seemed kind of weird. And I don’t even know how to describe Taylor’s personality. (But I would never describe Taylor as ugly or unattractive ever).

        Not that I find this girl’s personality all that interesting though. To be fair, maybe the questions were really boring.

    • Zigggy says:

      Yes… Penelope Cruz.

  17. jaygee says:

    I don’t buy that she’s a GoT super fan until/unless she freely discusses Kit Harrington hair watch and/or whether that castle is Spain is going to be site where they film the Tower of Joy scenes.

    You like the show? This isn’t just a BS answer to impress dudes? Prove it.

  18. kai says:

    I want to see that DJ movie. Wes! Bentley!

  19. Pamela says:

    Also– it said her nighttime routine involves “chugging water”? I drink a lot of water every day, but I try to wind it down by bedtime. Otherwise I would be waking up to run to the bathroom all night instead of sleeping.

    Not sure why she would lie about chugging water, it just seems so odd to do that at bedtime. Is that just me?

    • S says:

      Eh. It doesn’t seem terribly odd to me. I drink a lot of water, and when I don’t for a while, I feel especially parched–like Sahara Desert, need water NOW, thirsty. I drink a bottle before bed and sleep with a bottle of water next to my bed… by morning it’s always empty. I usually half-wake up throughout the night thirsty and drink it. Granted, I do have to get up to go to the bathroom at some point, but that has been my routine for pretty much my whole life, so it’s not weird for me. But I completely acknowledge that I’m the exception, not the norm.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I also drink a bottle during the night and yes, I have to get up once, but I do even if I don’t drink the water. I just get thirsty in the night.

  20. Skyblue says:

    I love the Paul Newman/Katherine Ross bike scene too. I wanted to be Katherine Ross! That’s all I got.

  21. perplexed says:

    She looks pretty there. Like a true model. Boring personality though.

  22. Mark says:

    Isn’t Zac Efron already a thing? You might not like but people watch his movies an d he isn’t a bad person, so it’s not controversial that he’s so popular.

    • Jayna says:

      Anytime I’ve seen Zac in movies, which isn’t often but enough, I’ve always been surprised by how talented he is, making an average movie bearable watching because he’s a good actor and has charisma on screen. And I thought he was fantastic in Hairspray.

    • ummm says:

      He’s C-list at best.

      What Kaiser meant and said was that he isn’t really leading-man status, not even in his HS musical heyday. Most of his movies are ensemble casts for this very reason.

  23. Jas says:

    I like her, I like that she puts her head down and keeps working in spite of all the criticism she’s gotten since the blurred lines video. She doesn’t offend me.

    I think it’s offensive that anything a female says now that might be perceived as attractive to males has her accused of being a ‘cool girl’ from gone girl. The whole point of the ‘cool girl’ was that she would falsify her entire identity to a current boyfriend, changing movie/music tastes, feigning interest in sports etc…. We all know them and I don’t get that impression from her at all. She just does her thing.

    • jaygee says:

      It has to do with what you present to the public and how you present it. Generally when I discuss GoT with people, as I do often, it is NOT in the context of portraying myself as a naked (i.e., sexually available) woman watching the show. No. When I (or all other female fans I know) discuss the show, it’s in terms of fan theories, or predictions about what’s next, or “I can’t believe this plot point happened.” Her decision to emphasize her nudity, while not discussing the show or what she actually likes about it, is what seems suspect.

    • lila fowler says:

      Puts her head down? LOL. She’s been doing random interviews since before Gone Girl came out. She’s constantly in the press.

    • Nina says:

      Completely unnecessary to mention being naked and completely intended to elicit male attention.

  24. shewolf says:

    How else is one supposed to answer a question as lame as “whats your night time routine?” Lame question will always get a lame answer.

  25. mememe says:

    ♡♡♡uni. The last few times I went out for sushi, they had no uni and I was very disappointed.

  26. GrnMtGirl says:

    All I can think about throughout the article and reading the comments is: She chugs water just before bedtime?! I wonder why she didn’t share how many times she needs to get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Not Cool Girl enough?

  27. Fiona says:

    Ugh go away you useless porn star
