Emily Ratajkowski, who recently announced she's pregnant with her first child, has hit out at the "gross" descriptions of her in a old interview with French Marie Claire from 2018 that resurfaced this week.

The 29-year-old took to Twitter to reveal she'd never seen the article before and wasn't happy to see it now.

The translated article written by journalist Thomas Chatterton Williams was shared on Twitter by writer David Klion, who pointed out its more objectifying paragraphs, which Emily retweeted.

"[I've] never read this before but I really hope this will be the last of my 'she has breasts AND claims to read' profiles/interviews," she said.

"Lots of levels of gross/embarrassing aspects to this but the attempt at a feminist critique at the end is maybe the worst part."

The article heavily focused on Emily's appearance with the author left in "shock" that she was a well-read and intelligent person. He wrote, "The day I read that she was a fan of Chilean novelist Roberto Bolaño, my brain shorted."

"No matter how much she really took the time to read the 1,300 pages of 2666, the mere fact that she knew his name already seemed unbelievable to me, as if we were definitely meant to get along."

In one passage he calls her "the sexiest version of a creature right on our side of humanity", adding she was "admittedly blessed with the most perfect breasts of her generation".

In another tweet, Emily poked fun at the fact Thomas was somehow confused by her outfit.

"I must add here that while articulating a completely intelligent thought, she is wearing an extraordinarily low-cut neckline, without a bra, while seemingly knowing, deep down, that her outfit is at once absurd and confusing, or even outright in contradiction with her words," he wrote.

"'Confusing' outfit lol," Emily wrote.

Thomas hit out at David Klion for bringing the article to everyone's attention and wrote, "Let me just get this straight. I got paid. To go to the Cap d'Antibes [hotel in Cannes] and talk to Emily Ratajkowski, in a hotel overlooking the Mediterranean, because my wife got the assignment and figured I'd enjoy it more. And in your world, this is somehow wack for me? What's your life like?"

In one post, Emily responded to a tweet that read, "Hey @emrata what did you think of the interview by this dumb guy with terrible politics?"

She said, "I remember this interview well actually – told my husband about it because I felt gross afterward. Not shocked to see this is what he came up with."

Interestingly enough, this all comes as news Emily is releasing a book called My Body, which are a collection of essays about "'what it means to be a woman and a commodity,' how men treat women and why women permit it," according to AP.
