Emily Ratajkowski breaks silence after naked photos published without permission

Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski has hit out at a photographer who has published nude images of her from a shoot that took place four years ago in a new photography book, describing the publication as a "violation".

Ratajkowski is no stranger to onscreen and photographic nudity, but those instances always seem to be on her terms.

A description for the book, which costs $80, refers to Ratajkowski as "pure simmering sex appeal". "It's a wonder she didn't burn the house down".

The book is on sale for $80, and the photos will also go on display at a gallery in NY this February. I think the results speak for themselves. "As far as shoots go, I would say it was fun".

We couldn't agree more, Em.

"This book and the images within them are a violation", she fumed to her 905,000 Twitter followers. "But I've had enough", she wrote on Twitter.

She does not name the magazine.

In May 2012, Jonathan Ledger photographed Ratajkowski in an explicit two-day magazine shoot, just before Ratajkowski landed her big break in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" music video.

The 25-year-old has always been an advocate for women's rights, particularly in regard to women being able to publicly display sexuality without judgment. "The truth is that both groups want to be noticed".

"The ideal feminist world shouldn't be one where women suppress their human instincts for attention and desire", she wrote in an essay for Glamour in September.

Emily makes such an important point. We understand that this is a part of his performance and artistic brand. This book is the opposite of that, and taking away her agency when it comes to her own body is sexual assault.

She has said this afternoon that she signed no release and was not paid for her work.

A rep for Leder and Imperial Pictures did not return FOX411's request for comment.

Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski has always been a vocal advocate for body positivity and a woman's right to own her sexuality, and now she's speaking frankly on another topic about which she has strong convictions: consent.
