Emily Ratajkowski broke her silence over the viral images of her and Harry Styles kissing on the streets of Tokyo, six months after his split from her friend Olivia Wilde.
While speaking about the internet frenzy over their passionate make-out session, the supermodel, 31, admitted that she did not anticipate being accused of breaking girl code by hooking up with her friend’s ex.
‘I didn’t expect this to happen, but I think, in general, there’s a reason certain celebrities live in LA, hire security, don’t go to public restaurants,’ she told Spanish Vogue.
The mother-of-one, who filed for divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard in September after four years of marriage, went on to admit that it has been ‘very bizarre to have certain experiences’ that ‘the whole world’ finds out and comments on.
‘I’m just a person who’s gone from a three-year relationship to a four-year one,’ she said, nodding to her past marriage and relationship with Jeff Magid, between 2014 to 2018.

The best-selling author went on to note that ‘this is the first time in a long time’ that she has ‘been in a dating stage.’
Ratajkowski famously wed Bear-McClard for a matter of weeks before they tied the knot in a New York City courthouse in February 2018.
‘The interest there is in that particular area is very strange. Not that I’m surprised, but it’s a tiny slice of my life,’ she reflected to the publication.
She proceeded to allude to her strained friendship with Wilde following her steamy smooch with Styles as she said ‘that’s how it is’ and it’s ‘just an unfortunate issue.’
Still, she expressed that she felt ‘ad for Olivia [Wilde]’ for also experiencing ‘slut shaming’ on on several occasions, according to a translation from the interview.
As of now, she said her ‘life is focused’ on her two-year-old son, Sylvester, and work.
‘But, I guess these issues don’t inspire the same flashy headlines. The invasion of private aspects is very hard for me,’ the Gone Girl actress stated.
Following her kiss with Styles, an insider told DailyMail.com exclusively that feels ‘betrayed’ by her ‘friend.’
However, the source added that the House star refuses to let the ‘betrayal’ bring her down and is focusing on moving forward with her life – including getting herself back onto the dating scene.
‘Olivia does not want to be dragged into this mess and she refuses to go backwards in her life,’ the source went on. ‘She is focused on her career and her kids and not giving this any more of he energy.’

In terms of her love life, the insider tells DailyMail.com that Olivia ‘is open to dating again, but she refuses to settle for anything less than she deserves.’
After splitting with Harry in November 2022, she has been rumored to be rekindling her relationship with ex-husband Jason Sudeikis, 47, with whom she shares son Otis, eight, and daughter Daisy, six.
But, the source insists Olivia has no plans to get back together with either of her exes.
‘Olivia did not break up with Harry to get back with Jason and there is a zero per cent chance of them getting back together,’ the insider continued.
‘Jason and Olivia are friends and are in a great phase right now, but that ship has sailed a long time ago.’

In recent months, Emily has been linked to several of Hollywood’s most sought after men, including Pete Davidson – who she briefly dated after highly-publicized split from Kim Kardashian.
In September 2022, Emily filed for divorce from her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, who she married in 2018 after only dating for a few weeks.
Emily and Sabastian, who are the parents to two-year-old son Sylvester, split over accusations that Sebastian had cheated on her.
Meanwhile, Olivia and Harry went their separate ways in November 2022 after doing a major push for Olivia’s successful film Don’t Worry Darling, which grossed over $85 million at the box office.
At the time of their split, People Magazine claimed the two were ‘taking a break’ from their romance due to having ‘different priorities that are keeping them apart’.
‘He’s still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in LA. It’s a very amicable decision. They’re still very close friends,’ a source told People.

‘Right now, they have different priorities that are keeping them apart. The public pressure on them has been difficult.’
‘They’ve had ups and downs throughout the relationship,’ a friend told the publication.
Prior to their split, Olivia was seen dancing the night away with her two kids at Harry’s November 15 concert at the Kia Forum in LA.
Coincidentally, Olivia and Emily both attended Harry’s Paris gig in June of last year – and were singing along to his tunes while standing right next to each other.
