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.”
