Emily Ratajkowski is doing things differently this time.
The model and author, who is back on the dating scene after splitting from husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, said this week that she is approaching relationships in a new way and that she considers more than ever his feelings.
“To use the phrase TikTok, I was a bit of a ‘choice girl’ in the sense that I wasn’t very good at deciding what I liked,” Ratajkowski told Harper’s Bazaar in a new interview Thursday. .
“I really wanted to be cast,” she added. “It was hard for me to go on a date with someone and think about how much I liked them or not. I would have thought about how they perceived me, what that meant, what they wanted from me, what it meant for my self-esteem.
Although the ‘Gone Girl’ actress told the magazine she didn’t want to talk about her marriage to Bear-McClard – the father of her one-year-old son – she revealed she felt “every emotion in this new chapter of his life.
“I feel anger, sadness. I feel excitement. I feel joy. I feel lightness,” she said. “Every day is different. The only good thing I know is that I feel all these things, which is good because it makes me believe that everything will be fine.
Ratajkowski and the “Uncut Gems” producer tied the knot in 2018 in a surprise courthouse ceremony, after just a few weeks of dating.
The “My Body” author and Bear-McClard then welcomed their first and only child together, Sylvester “Sly” Apollo Bear, in 2021.
After rumors that the couple’s marriage was on the rocks, Page Six reported in July that the two were going their separate ways due to Bear-McClard cheating.
Although neither party has publicly commented on the allegations, later that month Ratajkowski liked tweets about the two’s divorce and his ex’s infidelity.
