  • She finds it weird that she'll be forever associated with a song that she neither wrote nor sang and admits that whenever "Blurred Lines" comes on at a club she "runs into the bathroom and hides."
  • Emily was enrolled at UCLA intending to major in fine arts, with plans to pay the tuition by modeling.
  • She drives a Nissan Versa, even though the producers of the Entourage movie, who wanted her to "play herself" put her in an Aston Martin. "I would never spend real money on a car, because I destroy things."

As for the pics, here are a couple of our favorites from the sexy beach shoot. For more drool-worthy (you try to come up with a better adjective after you see 'em) images go here.

FYI: Emily also appeared in the November 2013 issue of the mag. Photos and video from that shoot are just a smidge less NSFW, but default to your common sense. More pictures from the shoot can be seen here.
