Who's that girl? Right now, you might recognize Emily Ratajkowski mostly as one of the nearly-naked women in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video, but that will soon change. Following her role in the ultra-popular video, Ratajkowski, a former catalog model and the star of a couple commercials, is apparently on her way to the big leagues. She was voted Esquire's first Woman of the Year, got some bigger modeling gigs, and landed a supporting role in the much-anticipated movie adaptation of Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck.

And now she has her first New York Times profile, which amusingly relates that despite suffering from a cold and sipping chamomile tea during the interview, the 22-year-old "showed plenty of skin in leather short shorts and a black low-cut top." Ratajkowski says she's always wanted to be an actress, and says she's already received "a lot of great offers" for TV and movie roles. But her manager wants her to hold out for something big. "You have to wait for the better one," Ratajkowski says. (More Emily Ratajkowski stories.)
