Kate Upton has not been well received by the fashion industry for her stunning curves, but she's not willing to shed weight just to be accepted. During a recent interview Kate shed light on her thoughts towards her body image and her career.
"It was hard when I was first in the industry and people were like, 'No, you are fat.' But my body is something that you have to work out and eat healthily for."
She added, I’m not doing drugs or not eating. I want to enjoy life and I can’t be enjoying life if I’m not eating and miserable. Young models – these agents are horrible to them they treat them so badly. I went to Australia and my agent there said don’t call me if you need anything, just show up on these castings. Some models don’t say anything [about being sleazed] on but I’m very verbal I always said something."
Despite fashion higher-ups like Victoria’s Secret uber booker Sophia Neophitou calling Kate "too obvious" in her sex appeal, it's the exact reason why she's landed several big name covers this year, including GQ, Sports Illlustrated and Esquire.
