Ever since getting media attention in 2013, American model and actress Emily Ratajkowski has always been in the spotlight.

Without further ado, here is everything you need to know about Emily Ratajkowski’s net worth, personal life, and career.
Emily Ratajkowski’s Family and Early Beginnings
Emily O’Hara Ratajkowski was born on June 7, 1991 in Westminster, London. She is the only child of her Polish-American parents, John David Ratajkowski and Kathleen Ane Balgley.
Her mother and father met each other at San Dieguito Academy in Encinitas, California, where they both taught. Emily is of Polish, Polish Jewish, Irish, and German descent. Her mother was raised Jewish, while her father was raised Catholic.
The family lived in West Kensington and Bloomsbury, London before moving to San Diego, California when Emily was five years old. At the time when the family left for the U.S., Emily already had a great interest in theater.
She started acting when she was just a child. She also had an interest in ballet and soccer.
Growing up, Emily visited nude beaches in Europe. This, as well as exposure to nude female photography, prepared Emily for nude work. As a self-identified feminist, she was never offended by nude art.
Emily Ratajkowski – Rising to Fame
What can be considered to have propelled Emily Ratajkowski to fame was her topless appearance in the music video of “Blurred Lines”, performed by Robin Thicke. The song became the song of the year in 2013 in several countries.

When she turned 15, she pursued her passion for acting by auditioning for iCarly and Disney roles. However, whenever she was cast, she would be stereotyped to “bitchy” and cheerleader roles.
While modeling and acting, she was attending San Dieguito Academy in San Diego. From 2009 to 2010, she appeared in some episodes of Nickelodeon’s iCarly, but her manager discouraged her from taking any more acting engagements until she can be more selective of roles.
She attended UCLA in 2009, but quit after a year to do modeling full-time.
After doing several editorials and campaigns with photographer Tony Duran, Emily began posing for the erotica magazine treats!, including the cover of the third issue in March 2012.
According to Emily, it was because of that cover that she was asked to do the music video for “Blurred Lines”. Later on, she did commercials for Carl’s Jr. and Nikon.

In February 2014, Sports Illustrated named her as one of the 12 swimsuit rookies for the 50th-anniversary edition. In April 2014, she was ranked by FHM as the fourth sexiest woman in the world. Maxim also has her on its Hot 100 list in 2014.
