Emily Ratajkowski poses nude on top of a horse and Piers Morgan is already complaining

Actress Emily Ratajkowski is no stranger to controversy about nude photographs and has explained that she feels empowered by taking her clothes off.

She appeared in the controversial Blurred Lines video, defended Kim Kardashian's infamous naked selfie and posed topless with the reality star after Kim faced a barrage of criticism - and now she's taking it to the next level, sitting naked astride a horse for Harper's Bazaar.

In an interview with feminist author Naomi Wolf for the American magazine, Emily said she is not just naked for the sake of it. She said: "The world should not be exclusive of the ideal body. It has to include all ideals, all bodies.

"The whole idea is that when Kim takes a nude selfie, she's just seeking attention. That's not the issue. A woman can be seeking attention and also make a statement. They don't need to be mutually exclusive."

She also hit out at the double standard women are held to, saying: "You know, when Lena Dunham takes her clothes off, she gets flack, but it's also considered brave; when Justin Bieber takes off his shirt, he's a grown-up. But when a woman who is sexual takes off her top, it plays into something."

Despite her empowered message, Piers Morgan has already taken a swipe at Emily, tweeting:

This prompted the actress to hit back and the Good Morning Britain host to brand her "comically deluded".

Piers has previously criticised Kim for posing nude, a selfie Emily defended, and offered to buy her clothes too.

Of the infamous naked selfie, Emily said: "A selfie is a sort of interesting way to reclaim the gaze, right? You're looking at yourself and taking a photo while looking at everyone.

"But also who cares? Kim's allowed to do what she wants. So I issued a series of tweets; she sent me flowers, thanking me, which was very sweet. We ended up running into each other and had this idea to take a similar selfie with our middle fingers up."

You do you, Emily!
