Kate Upton Elle: Sports Illustrated Cover Model, 'The Other Woman' Star Talks Insecurities, Religion and People Using Her in September Issue
Kate Upton's Elle spread is filled with the fashion model and "The Other Woman" star talking about her famed first Sports Illustrated cover, religion and people using her. She dished on a lot of her personal life and feeling for their September issue.
The well-endowed stunner said a lot of people treat her unfairly due to her natural good looks. They like to assume that she is a "dumb blonde."
"People deal with models like they are children," she told Elle. "They think they can pull one over on you. It's actually funny. I'm always like, I'm about to pull something on you, and you're so focused on thinking I'm dumb you're not even going to know it."
The leggy beauty, who has a cross tattoo on the inside of one of her fingers, did not leave any territory off limits in the interview. She even discussed her wildly popular first SI cover with blatant honesty.
"After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month," she explained. "Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I'm not a toy, I'm a human. I'm not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your s*** out."
She even gave up some of the goods on her dating life, but did not address the rumors of her dating "Dancing With the Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
"I really have never had a serious relationship in the industry," she said. "I'm just having fun. Obviously I have a very busy schedule at this time in my life, and I don't put relationships as a priority."
Something that is a priority for the model is her fashion looks and statements. On the cover, Upton dazzled in a red strapless neopene dress and necklaces from Lanvin, and link necklaces, bracelets and a ring from David Yurman.
In another gorgeous look, she wore a Dolce & Gabbana white cotton blouse and embroidered black nylon briefs. She accentuated her look with a Jennifer Fisher heart charm necklace, Marni fox wrap and red suede pumps.
And yet in another photo, she donned a Gucci embroidered tulle net gown with feathers, paired with a David Yurman yellow gold cuff with diamonds and white gold and black diamond ring.
