Billed as “The Bombshell of Summer,” Emily Ratajkowski covers the July 2014 issue of GQ. Covering the British-born model and actress’s meteoric rise since last summer’s star-making appearance in Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” music video, the piece sees Ratajkowski shot by photographer Michael Thompson while the story itself covers everything from the video and her upcoming appearance in the long-awaited Entourage movie to dating, bars and more. Check out some excerpts from the piece below and head on over to GQ for the full cover story and spread. GQ‘s July 2014 issue is set to hit newsstands July 1.

On the “Blurred Lines” video:
I didn’t want to do it at first, but I talked to the director and I understood what it was.

I do like it. But if there’s one thing I’d request, it’s for people who see me out to not be, like, You’re the hottest bitch in this place. When it comes on in a bar, I run into the bathroom and hide.

On the upcoming Entourage movie:
That show’s always been so funny to me. I’m playing myself, and they’ve got me in an Aston Martin. I drive a Nissan Versa and would never spend real money on a car, because I destroy things. So there’s this weird version of yourself. Hollywood fetishizing you and itself—this box within a box. There is winter in L.A., there is rain in L.A. But there is no rain on Entourage.

On dating:
Generally, I just think there is a real lacking in men knowing how to hit on women. I have this whole running joke with someone: What Would Denzel Do? Like, you don’t think about how many days you should wait to call the girl—you just do it when you want. Fuckin’ Denzel. You do what you want, you know what you want.

On bars:
Bars are bad. Generally, people don’t want to be embarrassing. But when there’s alcohol involved and group mentality, it can be a little weird. Guys will say, ‘You know who you look like…,’ and then word spreads. Or guys do this thing where they go, ‘I would love to take a picture of you for my friend.’ And then they get out their phone and their hand’s shaking, and I’m like, ‘You’re taking this for your friend? I thought you didn’t care.’
