Kate Upton: 'The Internet Can Be Horrible'

Kate Upton: 'The Internet Can Be Horrible'

Kate Upton shows off her fabulous body on the cover of Net-A-Porter’s The Edit magazine.

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

On dealing with public perception: “[The scrutiny was really hard to deal with] because I actually cared what people thought. The only thing I do for other people now is cook. That’s the only place in my life where I care what they think… I’ve heard people say, ‘You put yourself in that position to be judged’. But no, I put myself in that position because I really liked that photographer. I wanted to do that piece of work. Not to be judged. The internet can be horrible, so I just don’t look at it anymore… But maybe a bit of hate is good for me. Because if I’m in a spot where everyone loves me, I won’t try as hard.”

On her strength as a woman: “I love strong women who are able to do it all. My mom always said I was born with rough edges and she didn’t want to cut them down, she just wanted to file them a little bit.”

On social media: “I feel like social media at this point is kind of b******t. At the beginning it was amazing and a lot of fun. It was like, ‘Cool, I can talk to my fans!’ And now I think that we’re losing the art of it. When I first joined Twitter it was just me, but [when] you’ve got contracts, it’s so planned. Now it’s about who has the best marketing, not who has a really good personality.”

    I doubt ‘second cut’ as a fine file would suffice.

    –”I’ve heard people say, ‘You put yourself in that position to be judged’. But no, I put myself in that position because I really liked that photographer. I wanted to do that piece of work. Not to be judged.”

    ^^^First off, those are the words of her reps, not Upton. Second, the bulk of Upton’s “work” comes from all the photoshoppers who must pull in some serious overtime to reshape her misshapen body. Third, when you put yourself out there as a pro swimsuit model and you don’t have anywhere near the physical credentials to be one, then people WILL “judge” you “borribly”… and they will have every right to do so!
