Emily VanCamp On Why She Loves Playing A Bad Girl In Revenge

Emily VanCamp is showing off her sexy side in the new issue of GQ.

The “Revenge” star, who showed off a revealing look for the November issue of the men’s magazine, addressed why she loves playing bad girl Emily Thorne on the ABC drama.

“I always feel like I’m playing a character when I’m in a beautiful dress, with my hair coiffed. I like getting down and dirty. It’s really fun,” she told the mag. “There’s nothing better than setting an a**hole’s house on fire. It’s those moments when I think ‘I love my job!’”

Despite her gorgeous gowns for “Revenge” and her saucy look for GQ, the actress said she identifies with being a good old tomboy.

“Definitely. I did ballet, which taught me how to be poised and graceful, but still, to this day I’d rather be fishing than going to some glamorous party. It’s so therapeutic,” she said.
