The hot model gets leading part

Emily Ratajkowski has landed her first leading film role.

The Blurred Lines babe, 23, excitedly told Instagram fans yesterday that she’ll appear alongside heartthrob Zac Efron in an upcoming flick.

‘So happy to announce my lead role opposite @zacefron in the film “We Are Your Friends”! #workingtitlefilms,’ Emily posted.

The coming-of-age movie follows Zac’s character Cole, an aspiring DJ who hopes to find success with an amazing track.

Emily’s fans can’t wait to see her in the film, with one writing: ‘this is gonna be good.’

‘Wonderful news! Congratulations,’ another commented.

The model’s acting career is really taking off – later this year she’ll star in Gone Girl with Ben Affleck and she’s also got a part in the Entourage movie due for release in 2015.
