The 32-year-old model, who has a two-year-old son, admits that she always battles criticism from a harsh 'internal voice,' but she has learned to find joy in her life.

AceShowbiz - Emily Ratajkowski is in a constant battle with the "voice" of her inner critic. The 32-year-old model, actress and author, who has been accused of preaching about feminism and empowerment while flaunting her body in modelling shoots and social media posts, says she also battles criticism from a harsh "internal voice."

She made the admission while chatting to Glamour in a video question-and-answer session, and said when asked to describe her approach to "self-love", "My relationship to self-love is a complicated one. I think it's a journey and I think that there's an internal voice you have to constantly encourage in a way that it's a lot of work, and it doesn't always come."

When asked how she practices self-love, mum-of-one Emily went on to share, "I think I've gotten better at catching myself when I have this sort of opposite voice...and realizing that I'm talking down on myself."

"I think it's also sort of like a philosophy," she continued. "You need to have a wider macro philosophy around finding joy in your life and realizing that you are you, and this is the one life you have. So to realize that kind of enjoying that life that's given to you means that you have to like yourself and be nice to yourself."

In a separate chat for the magazine edition of Glamour, Emily divulged how she has changed her mind about a form of feminism used to justify women flaunting their bodies. She said, "I (now) don't agree with choice feminism. When I was in my early-20s that's something I talked about, but that's also what I correct in the book... God, I was saying that because I wanted to protect myself and believe something, because the alternative was too terrifying and too depressing."
