Emily Ratajkowski criticized men for letting their sexual desires cloud their judgment after photos of her kissing Harry Styles in Tokyo surfaced.
Over the weekend, the 26-year-old pop star and the 31-year-old model garnered attention when they were spotted engaging in a passionate kiss on the streets of Tokyo.
Following the public sighting with Harry Styles, Emily shared an update on her dating life after her divorce and stated that she does not envision settling down in the future.
The actress known for her role in Gone Girl criticized men for allowing their sexual desires to dictate their actions in romantic relationships, and disclosed her intention to raise a second child independently.
In an exclusive Q&A session with her subscribers, Emily implied that she doesn't anticipate a lasting relationship with Harry, as she intends to freeze her eggs and have another child when she's in her late thirties, to provide a sibling for her first child, Sylvester.
When a fan asked: 'Is it cool to raise a baby without the father?', Emily started ranting about men being dopey and sex-obsessed.
She replied: 'I thought about this a lot – a lot of my friends have gotten their eggs frozen just to buy themselves some more time, do the careers they want, meet the potential partner they want, but also I know a lot of people had IVF because they weren't able to get pregnant naturally.
'And, I'm 31, and it was really crazy – my last visit with a gaeno, and she was like, 'Ok, well in about two or three years we'll be talking about your eggs, you know, being frozen.' And it rally shocked me – not that I don't think that's reasonable, I was just like, 'Holy s**t, I have to be thinking about that?'
'My mum naturally got pregnant with me at 38 so it never crossed my mind that part of it.
'I think I definitely would like to have more children – I really love being a mom. I'm not sure I'm going to find somebody that I want to raise a child with. A friend of mine – a very famous friend with many sisters, when I told her I was getting divorced, was like, 'Don't worry, like, guys are not deterred by you having a child.'
"And guess what? She was right. I will say there are men who are more respectful of my family, which is me and Sly, and our relationship, and more cognisant of it than others. And that makes a huge difference for me."
"Like if you are appreciative of my life as a mother and my time with Sly and how he is Number 1, like, you win so many points."
"But in general, it's not like guys are like, 'Oh my God, I don't wanna be a stepdad' – that's too much pressure."
"I'm so sorry to say this – men think with their d**ks. And they're just not that advanced."
"Like a woman would be like, "I don't even know if I can go on a first date with this guy – he has two kids."
"Guys are just not there. So they'll be in love with you and they'll be like, 'Oh s**t, she has two kids – guess I'm a stepdad."
"I'm not saying like that's good, I'm just saying don't worry about that – that shouldn't be a deciding factor in whether you have a child or not on your own, because they're just not thinking like that."
"I want to be careful about how I say this because I think that having two people raise a child can be really important. I think that, you know, having a father is important, but I also just want to say that I know quite a few women who have done it on their own and they've done incredible jobs and they are fantastic mothers and they have wonderful kids, and I personally have really liked parenting on my own."
"So I personally wouldn't be afraid of getting pregnant and giving birth as a single woman."
"That doesn't mean I'm saying that's the best way to do it or the only way to do it but I very much see that for my future – deciding to do IVF in my late-30s to give Sly a sibling."
"I think marriage is really hard, partnership is really hard and when you bring kids into the mix it's 1,000 times more difficult, so in some ways it (being a single mum) can streamline it a bit."
"But it also means there is no time off. There's no shifts – there's no, "Give mummy and daddy a break," so it's a lot of work. But it definitely can be done and I think it can definitely be a beautiful thing."
"We went from flirting to attachment styles, to choosing to do IVF and do parenting solo."
Emily also mentioned that it's incredibly challenging to bring a man into her life as a single mother, and that some men are more understanding and accommodating than others.
When a fan inquired about Emily's perspective on men expecting women to act as their caretakers, she strongly denounced the notion, stating, "I hear you – I don't want to have to do any labour for anyone, or do any work for anyone I'm not willing to."
"That being said, I like it when men in particular ask me what I'm into… because I am so used to dudes thinking they are an arsenal of knowledge and there's nothing more for them to learn. I kind of like that if they're serious about it, but a lot of the time they're not."
"I dated a guy for a minute, whose name will not be disclosed, who never made it through my book – through my own damn book."
"He got halfway, and he was like, 'It's really good.' He kept saying he was a slow reader, but I was also like, 'Huh, ok – are you just not that interested in me?"
"And by the way, it's really weird to have somebody reading your book, like the most personal things about you when you are going out with them."
"I've had a couple of dudes who have asked for recommendations, and I've given them, and then don't actually follow up, so it's just this empty thing, and I definitely don't like that."
"But I think in general I appreciate when men are asking me what I'm interested in, and want to listen to the music I like, and want to know what I'm into and thinking about and enjoying because a lot of I feel like what I am – your identity can really be reflected in your taste."
"And a lot of the time, short stories and essays that I love are core to who I am and I feel like I've learned a lot about other people based on their interpretation of writing. I've been really impressed and really disappointed when I've sent them a bit of writing and then I'm like, 'Oh, s**t, that's how you see the world? Damn it'."
"I want to go and see movies with you and see what you think."
"But I'm never mad at someone expressing an interest in the things I'm interested in."
Amid rumors that Emily is attempting to reconcile with Olivia Wilde, Harry's ex-partner who separated from the singer last year, the model's remarks surfaced.
According to insiders, Emily's steamy make-out session with Harry may have resulted in the loss of her friendship with Olivia, who was allegedly heartbroken following her separation from the singer.
A source informed Page Six that the author of My Body is "begging [Wilde] for forgiveness. This is a betrayal."
In the meantime, Olivia, who was in a relationship with Harry for nearly two years, called it quits in November of 2022.
The nature of Emily's relationship with the Don't Worry Darling director is unclear, but they were filmed dancing together at Harry's Paris concert in the past and have frequently praised each other in public.
Emily even admitted to feeling extremely protective of Olivia, who faced rumors of on-set conflicts and controversy surrounding her relationship with the film's lead actor [Harry], which nearly overshadowed her recent project.
Although the video came as a surprise to many, The Sun claimed that the couple has been acquainted for some time.
A source who spoke to the publication stated: "Harry and Emily are enjoying getting to know each other."
"Getting filmed kissing in Tokyo and then that footage being shared with the world wasn't what either of them expected – but they aren't hiding anything."
"Harry and Emily have been getting to know each other for some time now. They spent some time together out of the public eye this year and are just enjoying each other's company when they can while Harry is on tour."
Harry is currently on his Love On Tour series of global performances, and is presently in Japan for a show.
Toward the end of last month, reports emerged that Harry had moved on from Olivia with an unidentified woman.
According to a source who spoke to the Mirror: "Harry is seeing someone. He's going to great lengths to keep her identity quiet after the circus surrounding his relationship with Olivia."
"But his close circles all know about the romance. Though it's early days, things seem to be going well."
In recent months, Emily was rumored to be dating serial dater Pete Davidson, and she filed for divorce from her former husband, film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, in September.
The couple first separated in July amidst allegations that Sebastian, who is 42 years old, was a "serial cheater."
Meanwhile, Harry and Olivia parted ways when they realized they had "different priorities that are keeping them apart."
Olivia was last spotted showing her support for Harry when she attended his concert at LA's Kia Forum on November 15th, with her two children in tow.
It was reported in November that Olivia was "disappointed" that her relationship with Harry Styles had not worked out.
