Emily Ratajkowski graces the cover of the Fall/Winter issue of Editorialist Magazine.

Emily Ratajkowski is no gone girl.

The model-actress reflects on her meteoric rise to movie stardom in the Fall/Winter issue of Editorialist Magazine.

This includes looking back at her breakthrough role opposite Ben Affleck in the hit 2014 thriller.

The 23-year-old had a memorable role as the young woman Affleck’s married character is having an affair, and the two shared a steamy sex scene in the film.

Ratajkowski said that she learned a lot about acting by following her “Gone Girl” co-star’s example.

“It was monkey see, monkey do,” she said about Affleck.

“You see how this person is doing it and you rise to the occasion.”

While she first rose to fame in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video, Ratajkowski’s career took off after “Gone Girl.” Her newfound A-list status has meant invites to exclusive Hollywood events, including this year’s Met Gala.

“I’m still recovering,” Ratajkowski said about attending the fashion soiree. “It was my first time going and it was as glamorous as you can imagine.”

Ratajkowski has been showing off her red carpet style while promoting her new movie with Zac Efron called “We Are Your Friends,” which opens Aug. 28.

The stylish actress described her look as “a little sexy but also being comfortable,” and added that she likes how “men’s stuff looks on men and I play with that a lot.”

Despite her status as one of Hollywood’s hottest starlets, Ratajkowski revealed she would next love to play “someone who has nothing to do with being pretty or attractive.”

“I’d love to play a role that surprises people,” she added.

The latest issue of Editorialist Magazine hits newsstands Friday.
