Kate Upton on why she won’t keep her clothes on: “Because I don’t want to!”

Kate Upton

Kate Upton covers the February issue of V magazine. She’s styled as Bridget Bardot, and she mostly pulls it off. The mag’s website has some weird interactive slider where viewers can pretend to “undress” Kate with an overlay image. In reality, all of the hormonal dudes who run to the V home page in hopes of seeing a fully undressed Kate will be dismayed to find they’re only seeing her in lingerie. Silly rabbits.

The interview excerpts release so far aren’t earth shattering, but they will do. I like how Kate’s talking back to that rude Victoria’s Secret rep who called her a “page 3 girl” and “a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.” Let’s do this:

On getting dissed by a VS rep: “I had just gotten my cover of Sports Illustrated that day. I wasn’t used to that kind of media swirl. I had never met her, so it really came out of nowhere.” Kate says the snarky comments were her “introduction to being in the spotlight and having people you’ve never met have an opinion of you.”

On acting: She admits being “completely out of her league” starring alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in The Other Woman. “I make no bones about it,” she adds, “I just listened and paid attention.”

Her nickname for her rack “The ladies! Everyone brings them up, so I have to have something to call them.”

Why doesn’t she keep her clothes on? “Because I don’t want to!”

Kate’s obviously having fun with some really lame questions from the journo. We all know that she’s primarily a swimsuit model, so of course she doesn’t keep her clothes on. I think a certain magazine is trying to stir up some controversy where there is none. Kate is a cute, bubbly blonde who is willing to indulge male and female fantasies alike with her various shoots. Men love her, and (most) ladies don’t find her to be threatening. She’s also smart enough to tell us all she’s not a toy. Kate’s here to do her job, plain and simple.

    I love her body but that red outfit is “ill-fitting.”

  2. blue marie says:

    She’s pretty but I don’t really like the cover. Something is throwing me off and I’m not sure what it is, the neck kerchief maybe? The Green Acres theme song just popped in my head, maybe that’s what they were going for?

  3. Valerie says:

    She’s harmless. At least she’s not a size 00, she looks great.

  4. Anna says:

    Imma start calling this girl ‘Halloween’ because she always looks like she’s playing dress up.

  5. Welldun says:

    Wow, I thought that first pic was Lohan…just wow. I’m going back to bed!

  6. MCraw says:

    She looks great on this cover. She’s making quite a name for herself, being “just a swimsuit model” and all. Good for her.

  7. Tapioca says:

    Hmm… amazing how different the shape of her inner thighs is on the cover shot to real life. And the defined waist!

    Why magazine’s don’t just find one perfect female form and copy and paste an outfit and head onto it as required like those cut out paper dolls we had as kids, I don’t know…

  8. Karolina says:

    I like her boobs and her face. Yeah, rest of the body is not so model-like, even for a swimsuit model, but her girls, faker or not, are spectacular and she seems fun!

  9. Helvetica says:

    She’s a model and is going to get paid to show her bits. I say, more power to her. I would be walking around naked all the time (at home) if I looked like that.

    As they say, if you’ve got it…

    She is stunning.

    Wow her boobs are actually supported! Like she is in a top that fits her. It’s a miracle.

  11. flavia_deluce says:

    I think she seems like a cool, grounded chick. The Other Woman looks like it’s going to be funny, I can’t wait to see it.

  12. nicegirl says:

    I love Kate Upton. You go girl!

  13. loveisthecoal says:

    I’ll never for the life of me understand all the griping about this girl’s body. I see her being slammed left and right (not just here, on lots of websites) for being too boxy, not having enough of a waist, not having a big enough thigh gap, etc. Good lord, if her body is worthy of so much criticism, I’d hate to hear what people have to say about mine. Good thing I’m not a model, I guess!

  14. Nick says:

    Why do women have to be non threatening or “harmless” in order to be liked by women?

    As for Kate, she seems sweet and I’m a breast man so every time she’s in a bikini I think she looks great. Also I don’t pay much attention to her being pear or boxy shaped…nor do I really know what that means.

  15. Velvet Elvis says:

    I love her. She’s here to show that scary skinny is NOT the beauty standard for women and never was.

  16. Jessica says:

    I don’t get the hype around her. She’s just kind of there, for me.

  17. Stef Leppard says:

    It’s Brigitte Bardot, not Bridget.

  18. smee says:

    She looks best without clothes, imo.
