Kate Upton On Her Signature Curves
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Kate Upton has no problem speaking her mind and seems to be full of confidence.
The model says that it took her a while to learn to love her body and there was a time when it didn’t look the way she wanted it to.
As a teenager, Upton said that she was not very curvy but always hoped that someday she would have a fuller figure.
“You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body,” she explained. “And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, ‘Yessss!’ And then people say: ‘Oh, wow, you’re healthy.’ And you’re like, ‘Wait – what? I’ve been begging for this body my whole life!’”
Upton doesn’t have the body type that most models have and that seems to work well for her. Not only can Upton work the runway and model for high fashion magazines, but she can also do sexier gigs as well thanks to her curves and body shape.
Although her sexy curves have made her famous and given her a lot of confidence, she says there are still days that she looks in the mirror and doesn’t like what she sees.
“Everybody at some point in their life doesn’t like themselves,” she said. “It’s not like I look in the mirror and think, ‘I’m killing it. My eyes are killing it.’ No, a lot of times I’m puffy and bloated. I like myself in general, but there are days when you just don’t.”
Upton said that she enjoys modeling but will also be fine when she can no longer do it.
“I would be fine leaving all of this behind and living on a farm somewhere,” she said.
