‘I have a hard relationship with that kind of stuff because it’s just my body and it’s my experience,’ she tells this week’s Stellar Magazine. 

‘I think that women’s bodies get talked about whether you snap back too fast or not quick enough, or your boobs are too big or too small, or you’re too skinny or too fat or whatever.’   

Australian actress Claire Holt, 32, best known her role on Vampire Diaries, was among those who took a swipe at Emily in March, and said that she found her post ‘annoying’.   

'Women's bodies get talked about whether you snap back too fast or not quick enough, or your boobs are too big or too small, or you're too skinny or too fat or whatever' she says. 'I've just sort of gotten used to it to the point that now I don't even pay attention'. Pictured last week

‘It it makes other people feel s**ty about themselves, and it’s not normal, and you’re an outlier, and you’re lucky; Claire wrote in post on Instagram.  

‘I’ve just sort of gotten used to it to the point that now I don’t even pay attention’ Emily told Stellar of the criticism.  

Elsewhere in the interview, Emily revealed how motherhood has changed her for the better.

‘I see things differently… I felt so much growth from my previous self. It felt nice, like I’m evolving, and my life is growing and changing, and that feels really satisfying.’ she said. 

‘Becoming a mother – it’s definitely the hardest I’ve ever worked in my life. Nothing compares to it. And I don’t think anybody can prepare you for it. But it’s also, of course, incredibly rewarding.’

Emily and her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, who married in 2018, welcomed Sebastian, their first child together, into the world in March 2021.

Announcing his birth on Instagram, Emily gushed: ‘Sylvester Apollo Bear has joined us earth side. Sly arrived 3/8/21 on the most surreal, beautiful, and love-filled morning of my life.’    

When Emily announced her pregnancy in Vogue, she wrote that she didn’t want to reveal the child’s gender.

‘When my husband and I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after: “Congratulations” is almost always “Do you know what you want?”‘ she wrote.

‘We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then,’ she shared.
