Eric Andre makes headlines about his relationship with Emily Ratajkowski: ‘Beauty is only skin deep’
Eric Andre has spoken out about how the media covered his brief relationship with Emily Ratajkowski.
The comedian and model were first spotted together in January and then appeared to confirm their alleged relationship on Valentine’s Day when Andre shared an NSFW photo of himself and the model nude.
In a new interview with Rolling StoneAndre was asked about headlines in the press expressing shock at the pairing, with interviewer Marlow Stern pointing to one that read, “How did this happen?!”
In response, Andre described himself as “ugly” but added that there is a perception that “attraction is based solely on physical appearance”.
“‘How could that happen!’ No man I’m ugly For the first 20 years of my life I looked like Steve Urkel.
“I think people think that attraction is based solely on physical appearance, but beauty is only skin deep.”
Pointing to other comedians married to Hollywood stars, including Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson and John Mulaney and Olivia Munn, he added, “So you would think that comedy…works.”
When asked what he thought of how the relationship was handled, Andre said, “I think the thought pieces and the mythology are more interesting than reality.”
In the Valentine’s Day photo, Andre is shown lying on a sofa while Ratajkowski’s reflection can be seen in the mirror behind him. Both are nude, with a cupid’s arrow emoji strategically placed across Andre’s crotch, while Ratajkowski faces away.
The Eric Andre Show star said: “Emily showed up and took this picture. I was really in the moment: I was drinking wine, she started laughing and said “I have to take a picture of this”.
“She took the picture, we both started banging and she said, ‘This is awesome.’ She kept saying “iconic”. We both agreed that this was a beautiful image that we needed to share with the world.”
However, Ratajkowski hinted that the relationship ended just days after the photo was posted to Instagram.
In a TikTok video, the model suggested the end of a “situation,” a romantic relationship that’s casual or undefined.
The clip shows her lying in bed as the text “What do you do when a situation ends?” appeared on the screen. Later, the on-screen text changed to: “Start another one?”
Andre did not confirm if they had actually split in the interview, which was published on Tuesday (March 14).
