Emily Ratajkowski Criticizes ‘Blonde’ for Fetishizing Female Pain and Obsessing over Dead Women

American model, actress, and influencer Emily Ratajkowski is not amused with Andrew Dominik’s Blonde, a biographical drama film based on the life of Marylin Monroe.

Blonde was released on Netflix on September 16, 2022.

Recently, the Gone Girl actress posted a video on her TikTok and slammed the biopic of famous Monroe by saying that it ‘fetishizes female pain.’

“I’m not surprised to hear that it’s yet another movie fetishizing female pain, even in death,” the 31-year-old actress said.

“We love to fetishize female pain. Look at Amy Winehouse, look at Britney Spears, look at the way we obsess over Diana’s death, the way we obsess over dead girls and serial killers. Watch any CSI episode and it’s like this crazy fetishization of female pain and death.”

While referring to her own pain and stressful divorce procedure, Emily said that people, especially women, need to change their ways of life and stop fetishizing their pain and misery.

“As women, I mean I can say for myself for sure that I’ve learned how to fetishize my own pain and my own hurt in life, so that it feels like something that can be tended to, that’s kinda sexy, and like, you know: “I’m like this, oh, f***ed up girl, whatever.”‘

 “And I think we do that in many, many different ways, but I want that to change.”

Three weeks ago, the Welcome Home actress filed for divorce from her husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, after four years of marriage.

According to Page Six, the 31-year-old model decided to part ways with the film producer because of his infidelity.

“Court records seen by Page Six show that the Inamorata designer filed in Manhattan Supreme Court Thursday and noted it was contested, meaning there are issues to be litigated.”

In her latest video clip on TikTok, Ratajkowski further said that she has learned from her past mistakes and traumatic life-changing experiences and is now going to be in her bi*** era.

“I was thinking about it, and you know what’s kinda hard to fetishize? Anger. Anger is hard to fetishize. So I have a proposal. I think we all need to be a little more p***ed off. I’m gonna be in my B**** Era – 2022, baby, is my b**** era. This is, I think we should all be in our B**** Era.”

“So I’m gonna be p***ed off when I see this movie, I already know it, but it’s nothing new and yeah, I’m just gonna get angry.” She concluded.

Her video received 2.1 million views on the platform along with 345.6K likes and more than 3000 comments; most of them were in support of her take on the movie and other women-related issues she talks about on her TikTok account.

“You and Julia fox should have a podcast together bc y’all have the best takes on issues like this,” a user commented.

“I had never seen it that way, I always thought it was “nice” that there was “awareness” and now I’m mindblown,” said another.

“Yes!!!!!! Thank you for saying this,” a third exclaimed.

“Perfect because I’m already angry naturally so this era works great for me,” wrote someone else.
