July 6 (UPI) -- Emily Ratajakowski says she's often deemed "too sexy" to work with in Hollywood.

The 26-year-old model and actress said in the August issue of Harper's Bazaar Australia that she loses out on roles because of her appearance.

"There's this thing that happens to me: 'Oh, she's too sexy,'" Ratajkowski told the magazine. "It's like an anti-woman thing, that people don't want to work with me because my boobs are too big."

"What's wrong with boobs?" she responded. "They're a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue?"

Ratajkowski shared similar sentiments in an interview with ES Magazine published in May 2016.

"It's an interesting paradox. If you're a sexy actress it's hard to get serious roles. You get offered the same thing that they've seen you in," the actress said. "People are like sheep and they're like, 'Oh, that's what she does well.'"

"The truth of the matter is no one wants to hear me talk about this stuff. Definitely not the men who are casting films don't want to hear it, but I just can't not -- I'm angry," she confessed. "It's important to me."
