Upset over Cat Daddy video release


Upton claims Richardson released the video without her consent saying the video was shot for fun, and she never thought it would be uploaded on YouTube. When asked if she stood up to Richardson:

Yes, I did. I was like, ‘That was disrespectful, you could have told me!’ Now, obviously, it’s fine.

Richardson is asked if he feels somewhat responsible for Upton’s rise to fame:

No. Kate was born a star.

Explains hand gestures

The supermodel explains bizarre gestures during the baseball game:

I feel that moving one’s hands in a certain way can develop and focus particular energies, similar to how it’s done in some martial arts.

Nude pictures in gallery

The model’s nude pictures will be displayed in an exhibit at The Cory Allen Contemporary Art Showroom in St. Petersburg, Fla. An artist known as XVALA is not displaying the photos themselves, but artwork created from the photos. The title of the exhibition is “No Delete”. Gallery owner Allen justifies use of the hacked photos:

This show has been in the works for about two years now. When this came out…about Jennifer Lawrence [and] Kate Upton, it was the prefect dialogue. It was about invasion of privacy—and [the artist] thought it would be the perfect time to add these as a final installment to [the collection].

The Talks interview


Upton gives an interview to The Talks. She discusses dealing with most of the world calling her a bombshell.

It’s where I’ve started and it’s what I’ve accomplished, so I’m happy about it. But the more my career grows, I think that people will see that I have a lot more to offer and a lot more to give, but I want to do it right and that’s why it’s taking me time. I’m patient about it. Now it’s out of my hands – it has kind of been rolling on its own – but at the beginning I was micromanaging every little step. For example, I felt that my agency before wasn’t helping me in the direction I wanted to go, so I approached IMG myself. I always had in my mind where I should be at a certain stage.

1406324106_kate-upton-elle-uk-cover-467Upton appears on the cover of the September 2014 issue of Elle UK magazine. She talks about when she first started modelling with the magazine.

When I first started modelling, I was a normal catalogue model. Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited … Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits … You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, ‘Yessss!’

Amber joins forces with the man’s wife, played by Cameron Diez, and another mistress, played by Leslie Mann, to get even with Mark after the three discover he is seeing them all simultaneously.  On working with Diez and Mann:

This is my first movie role, and these two supported me every step of the way. They made me feel so safe from Day 1. They encouraged me to mess up and try new things and they were just amazing examples.

Kate Upton ad campaign

Ad Appearance

Bobbi Brown chooses Upton as the newest face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, replacing Katie Holmes as their celebrity spokesperson.

Besides being strong and confident, she is really smart. She knows exactly who she is and who her brand is. She told me she called her mom and her sister right away when she found out about [becoming the face of the brand]. She was so excited about doing it! That’s what I love about Kate: She’s a real girl.

Zero Gravity Shoot

I had no idea what to expect, then I’m sitting there being like, ‘Wait, is this weightless?’ But you definitely know whenever it comes.

Upton and Chmerkoskiy break up due to conflicting schedules. A source says:

They are really good friends still and speak all the time, but their schedules just made it too difficult and it fell apart. [Chmerkovskiy] has a lot of respect for her, but it just wasn’t working anymore.

Upton appears1378222958_kate-upton-vanity-fair-467 on the cover of the October 2013 issue of Vanity Fair. She talks about how she didn’t always have positive remarks on her appearance.

I’m not going to name names, but one agency told me, “You’re too American, and everybody knows American women are lazy.” I was so offended! I’ve never been so offended! I was like, “You know that you’re in America, right?” And it wasn’t “American models”—it was “American women are lazy,” period! I feel like a lot of women would disagree with that. A lot!

Magazine Cover

kate-upton-vogue-cover-inlineUpton appears on the cover of the June 2013 issue of Vogue magazine. She talks about how she feels about her body and the hate she gets.

I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great. It’s kind of funny to think, ‘Oh, wow, the news is talking about whether I’m fat or not.’

Magazine Cover

kate-upton-inlineUpton appears on the cover of the July 2012 issue of GQ magazine.

For the GQ photo shoot, we were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I’m wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I’m holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier — it was so embarrassing.

Esquire interview


Upton discusses her body maturing:

I don’t really know what the appeal is about… boobs. But I do know that when I was in junior high, I used to be made fun of — for being flat-chested. Everyone would go, She’s not pretty! She doesn’t have boobs! So I always had boob envy. And when finally I went through my growth spurt, and they appeared, and I just… I loved them. So that’s why I like boobs, because I didn’t have them, and then I got ’em. So I dunno what the appeal is for you.
