Actress Emily Ratajkowski is sick of dating men who don’t know how to handle strong and independent women and sees the appeal of dating another female instead. The “Gone Girl” actress, who has been romantically linked to Brad Pitt, Pete Davidson, DJ Orazio Rispo and Jack Greer since filing for divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard in September, believes that some guys truly think they want an independent partner but ultimately don’t enjoy feeling emasculated and the relationship then goes down hill, reports Speaking to guest Olivia Ponton on her “High Low with EmRata” podcast, she said: “They’re like, ‘You’re special. You’ve done it.’”

“Then (they) slowly get emasculated, and they don’t know what to do with those feelings, and they resent you, and then they start to tear you down. And then you’re just back to square one.” The 31-year-old beauty — who has 21-month-old son Sylvester with her estranged husband — branded the situation “very bad and unfair” and can “understand dating women” instead. She said: “There might be competition but it doesn’t feel like somebody’s taking something away from someone else.

Weirdly with heteronormative relationships, I feel like that happens.” The strength and the power is associated with the masculine, and once the woman has that, the man doesn’t know what else he has. “But I’m like, ‘How about you just be better at expressing your emotions and being there emotionally? That would be great.’” The actress recently revealed she had joined a dating app but feared it was “too white” and wasn’t convinced it would result in her meeting a “lady crush”.

Meanwhile, model-actress Emily had said recently that she hasn’t ever “loved” being a model, because the work has left her “very confused” about her relationship with her own body. When it was suggested she didn’t seem to love the job, Ratajkowski said: “Absolutely not. I don’t think I ever loved it. I loved the idea and the validation, but certainly the work itself made me feel very confused about my relationship with my body and with what was important.”

The actress said she was “really excited” about modelling when she first started out in the industry aged 13, reports Quizzed on what “appealed” about modelling when she started, she added to Stylist magazine: “Initially, it just seemed that specifically girls who are considered ‘hot’ were the most powerful women. “So at 13, it felt really exciting that anyone would even want me to be a model.

It felt validating and it made me feel special and powerful too, because all the women that I looked up to were women who were famous for being strong on some level.” Ratajkowski is a foodie. She gives credits her love of food to her childhood holidays spent in Europe, as she would spend half the summer in Majorca and the other half of the summer in Ireland. Ratajkowski is a big fan of Irish food despite others calling it simple.
