Kate Upton Talks Insecurities & Losing Weight in 'Elle UK's September 2014 Issue

Kate Upton shows off her long legs on the cover of Elle UK magazine’s September 2014 issue, out on newsstands on Friday, August 1!

Here’s what the 22-year-old supermodel had to share with the mag:

On suffering insecurities: “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.”

On her body: “When I first started modelling, I was a normal catalogue model. Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited about becoming a woman. Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits. It’s a different view of beauty there. You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, “Yessss!”

On being asked to lose weight: “Agents have put me under pressure to lose weight in the past. I would go on set and clients loved me. And then I would go into an agency and feel like crap about myself. They would say: ‘Just lose five more [pounds]!’ But I couldn’t give a crap. I still don’t.”

    I think she has a great body. I love a curvy woman. Those skinny models just don’t do it for me.

  • krtmom

    I’m from Florida, not curvy (more athletic) and certainly not ugly!!! What a stupid comment. Her body is mediocre at best (needs to do some crunches)!

  • Meg

    It’s not her weight that’s the issue, it’s her bone structure where her waist is very high and wide which makes her stomach and lower back look non proportionate and big. She’s got a nice face and obviously huge boobs but the rest of her body is just average. I wouldn’t criticize her about this if she wasn’t a model tho but for a model she just looks big and clumsy compared to other models

  • lala

    just stop talking about your body already…who cares really…she sounds so vain doing interview after interview about my body this my body that…get over yourself you silly girl…

  • KL

    @James: Upton’s body is as ‘curvy’ as a cinder block. Big titties and a fat gut aren’t ‘curves’.

  • Meh


    You took the words out of my mouth! Good grief it’s old…talk about fashion or modeling…anything other than your damn body and insecurities. Blah blah.

  • lol

    @KL: If that’s what you call “fat” them I’m sure you have skeleton fetish

  • KL

    @lol: Learn to read. I said she has a fat gut. I didn’t say she was fat overall. And I don’t have a skeleton fetish. This may come as a real shock to you, but there are more body types than just skeletons and whatever alien type Upton’s body is.

    but their are still a lot of womens who love her body.
