Emily Atack is an "open book".
The 'Inbetweeners' star wants to feel "free to express" herself as a woman, as she confessed she "drinks and parties a bit too much" and "kisses too many boys".
She said: "I’m an open book, One-night stands, dating mishaps – I don’t think women should be repressed talking about them. As a blonde with big boobs, to talk about sex shouldn’t be seen as crude. For me, being a feminist is feeling free to express yourself as a woman ... I drink and party a bit too much. I kiss too many boys and that is just who I am right now. I’m having fun. I’m so lucky. I’m working and healthy. I’m the happiest I’ve been in a very long time. What I’m learning is the more you embrace your imperfections, the more people embrace them with you."
And in her new show, 'The Emily Atack Show', the 30-year-old actress has confessed she told everyone – including her mum and dad – something that "no parent on Earth should have to listen to".
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, she added: "I’m sick of my brother threatening to tell everyone. He’s had this reign of terror on me for years, so I thought ‘right, I’m getting this out in the open’. No parent on Earth should have to listen to it. I thought, sod it, I’ve got so much power up here and I’m going to milk it. There were a lot of open mouths and shocked faces. My mum was covering my dad’s ears."
Meanwhile, Emily previously slammed the difference between how herself and her male counterparts are treated.
She said: "Discussing one-night stands shouldn't be such a terrible thing as a woman. Blokes are allowed to talk about them until they’re blue in the face so I’m just, like, whatever. It’s part of being single, it’s part of your dating life. Sometimes one-night stands can be a great thing, sometimes they’re a disaster and I think everyone can relate to that."
