Kate Upton: Sports Illustrated Cover Made Me Feel "Terrible," Like a "Toy"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kate Upton is on top of the world thanks to back-to-back Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers, but her status as a sex symbol took some getting used to.

The supermodel said at first, she felt objectified and ridiculed.

"After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I just felt terrible about myself for a solid month," she tells Elle, which the 21-year-old also covers this month.

"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, you need to figure your sh-t out," she added, lamenting that she's treated like a stereotypical "dumb blonde."

Nowadays, she says she takes this more in stride.

"People deal with models like they are children. They think they can pull one over on you. It's actually funny," says the beauty and "It Girl" of modeling.

"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 what hit you."

We love that about Kate, that she's so honest and secure in who she is, which is so much more than any stereotype and refreshing for a model especially.

But let's be real ... Kate Upton photos are unreal.

Team Kate! Just because she makes money from it and is a sex symbol doesn't mean she can't be upset that people don't treat her like she wants them to IN PERSON. Idiots.

You may be on to something. This is what I tell my girl, just because you smell perfume on me, just because someone else's panties are under my bed, just because I get late night texts & just because my car is parked outside another woman's house DOES NOT mean we are having sex together. It just looks that way! Good try..... She can be upset all she wants but it won't change dick! If it walks like a duck???????

I hope she is not thinking that WE think she comes across as a dumb blonde? Oh dear---//-- we are past that! Within a year she will be doing one of three : (A) pregnant by a black rapper (B) making Porn (C) making porn then getting pregnant after doing a rap video with a black rap star! Her future is as given a cold weather in January! She has got to be kidding.
