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.”
