Emily Ratajkowski, who just recently starred opposite Zac Efron in box office bomb “We Are Your Friends,” isn’t too happy that people are still talking about Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” music video, which put her on Hollywood’s radar in 2013.

Ratajkowski became engraved in pop culture as the stand-out topless girl in the controversial music video, which was banned from YouTube before being re-uploaded with age restrictions.

“I wasn’t into the idea at all at first,” Ratajkowski told InStyle U.K. “I think I came off as a bit annoyed in the video. Now, it’s the bane of my existence. When anyone comes up to me about ‘Blurred Lines,’ I’m like, are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?”

The actress, who also had a small role in “Gone Girl” as Ben Affleck‘s mistress, spoke to the magazine about getting naked on camera — something she doesn’t shy away from while sharing the screen with Affleck, as well.

“It’s weird to me that the reaction to a woman’s naked body is so controversial in our culture,” she said. “My mom taught me to never apologize for my sexuality. My dad never made me feel embarrassed. I also don’t think I’ve ever had an awareness of my own body as being super-sexual. It was always just my body.”

Ratajkowski is on the cover of InStyle U.K.’s issue October issue, which hit newsstands on Sept. 3.
