Emily Ratajkowski swears she’s no gym bunny… despite her killer bod

Ever since her appearance stark naked in Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines video, Emily Ratajkowski has been the ultimate girl crush for women everywhere.

With her long, lean limbs and washboard abs, you'd be forgiven for thinking the 24-year-old model spends most of her day sweating up a storm in the gym. But in a new interview with the New York Times, Emily promises she's not really into fitness, and would choose a walk with friends over a gruelling gym session any day.

"I don’t have a trainer, and I don’t really go to the gym. I go on long walks and hikes with my girlfriends," the American beauty says. "That’s about it. I’m just not a crazy fitness person. I’m definitely an outlier in the industry."

Of course a body like that can't all be down to the genetic lottery, and Emily says she she loves the LA clean eating lifestyle that so many of the city's residents subscribe to. "For me, it’s about feeling good about what you eat. I do love turmeric and beet juices. It’s so LA, you can’t avoid it," she explains.

And her exercise routine isn't the only thing she keeps low-key, as Emily says she hates the overdone look when it comes to make-up. "I have really big features, so a little makeup goes a long way. I would hate to look like a clown," she tells the magazine.

While her work on Blurred Lines and a subsequent role as Ben Affleck's mistress in Gone Girl have catapulted Emily to mainstream fame, she has been working in the modelling industry for years. 

As well as catalogue work for Kohl's, Forever 21 and Nordstrom, Emily also did a number of nude photo shoots, most notably with photographer Tony Duran in 2011 and 2012.

At 5'7" and with curves that aren't often seen on the catwalk, the GQ cover girl says she is proud of being different. 

"I want to be a model that breaks down the traditional body boundaries. You don't have to be 5'9" and an A-cup to be a successful model, and that's nice," she said in a previous interview with Into The Gloss.
