Emily Ratajkowski has said she ‘doesn’t believe in straight people’ after seemingly coming out as bisexual on TikTok.

Mum-of-one Ratajkowski, 31, recently took part in a TikTok trend that involves the user responding to the question: “If you identify as bisexual, do you own a green velvet couch.”

The model and actor had joined in with her own video – which has since been deleted from the platform - panning the camera round to her green couch.

While Ratajkowski has not publicly addressed the implied admission since, in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she revealed that she sees sexuality at something that functions on moving scale – where, in her mind, heterosexuality doesn’t really exist.

This means that, rather than confirming she is bisexual, Ratajkowski said she believes no one is 100 percent heterosexual.

She said: "I think sexuality is on a sliding scale.

"I don't really believe in straight people."

Ratajkowski also explained how her outlook on dating since breaking up with her husband of four years Sebastian Bear-McClard, saying she has ‘gone on dates’ but didn’t admit to seeing anyone exclusively just yet.

"To use the TikTok phrase, I was a bit of a 'pick-me girl' in the sense that I wasn't very good at deciding what I liked," she continued.

"I really wanted to be chosen. It was hard for me to go on a date with someone and think about how much I did or didn't like them.

“I would have been thinking about how they were perceiving me, what it meant, what they wanted from me, what it meant about my self-worth. I don't have that anymore.

“So now it's really fun to go to dinner with someone and be like, 'Cool. I really enjoyed these parts of them. I really didn't like these other parts.'"

Ratajkowski recently spoke out about the 'most controversial dress' she's ever worn, defending her decision to wear it.

Speaking on an episode of the 'Fashion Flashback' YouTube series by Harper's Bazaar, Ratajkowski discussed an outfit she wore to the magazine's 2016 Icon Party, which was branded 'extremely vulgar' by one critic.

"It was a Julien Macdonald dress. I can remember somebody called it extremely vulgar and it became like this huge controversy on the internet and some of my agents were mad at me," she said.

Ratajkowski explained how some of her agents 'thought it was too sexy', continuing: "I know this sounds whatever, but I was in my twenties, and I just like, hadn't registered that it was so sexy because there is a panel in the middle, but it looks like there isn't."

The star also recalled how she hit back at TV fashion consultant Tim Gunn - who called the dress 'appallingly vulgar and revealing' - and slammed his comments as 'sexist', which led to a whole 'drama' ensuing.
