Kate Upton talks pressure to lose weight, life on a farm, and begs boyfriend for a puppy


Leave it to Kate Upton to look like a bombshell in a turtleneck.

The 22-year-old model and actress graces the September issue of Elle U.K., out on newsstands August 1. For the shoot, Kate covers up in fall threads including a black turtleneck, a mod-inspired Prada jacket and inside the mag, an oversize fur coat thing that looks more like a very chic slanket, if you ask us.

Kate opened up about growing up as a Floridian farm girl to the glossy. "It made me very goal-oriented and focused. I'm not opposed to a hard day's work for a good outcome."

The blond beauty also got candid about suffering from occasional insecurities, like everyone else. "It's not like I look in the mirror and think, 'I'm killing it. My eyes are killing it.' No, a lot of times I'm puffy and bloated. I like myself in general, but there are days when you just don't," she said.

Kate also revealed that she's been under unfair pressure from agents, but remains totally unfazed. "Agents have put me under pressure to lose weight in the past. I would go on set and clients loved me. And then I would go into an agency and feel like crap about myself. They would say: 'Just lose five more [pounds]!' But I couldn't give a crap," she said. "I still don't."
