In the September issue of Elle, supermodel Kate Upton claims that posing for the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue didn’t exactly do wonders for her self image. In fact, she says the whole thing made her feel like crap.
“After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month,” the 21-year-old said in the issue out Aug. 20. “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,” she continued. “I’m not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your s-t out.”
Hey, if millions of fat guys were looking at me the way they flipped through that issue, I would feel kinda shitty, too.
The nature of celebrity is an odd thing. These people, thrust into the spotlight thanks to some sort of talent or god given ability, are, at their core, regular human beings like you and me. They laugh, they cry and they date. Oh man, do they date. Sometimes these celeb pairings just make sense; Beyonc and Jay Z are both massively successful artists in intersecting genres of music. Sometimes they completely boggle the mind; where did Kaley Cuoco and Henry Cavill even meet? And here’s a new couple to consider: cover model du jour Kate Upton and dancing meatstick Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who you may know as the hot dancer from Dancing With the Stars who can’t seem to keep his shirt buttoned.
Upton and Chmerkovskiy were spotted by the New York Post source Monday night holding hands at Catch in New York City’s Meatpacking District, which is not a joke about Maksim trying to fit his pecs into a t-shirt. According to the witness, “they seemed pretty open about their relationship.” The two have been rumored to be a couple for some time now, though Maksim denied those rumors recently, telling Extra, “we go way back.” Which, Kate Upton is a 21-year-old model raised in Melbourne, Florida and Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a 33-year-old dancer from Ukraine, how far back can they really go?
Chmerkovskiy was previously engaged to DWTS co-star Karina Smirnoff, but the two broke up in 2009. The two are currently co-starring in Forever Tango on Broadway. Upton, for her part, has been single for most of the time she’s been in the public eye, despite scores of enthusiastic fans.
If it’s true, good for you Maksim. You’re probably the most envied male dancer since Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman got married.
The face of an angel!
V magazine caught wind of Kate Upton fever and decided to do a shoot with her for their 81st issue.
The model is pictured posing around a hotel with male eye candy Liam Hickey looking very Mad Men seksi and chic.
So, basically just another day in her boobalicious life!
For the sensual shoot, Kate wears retro-inspired ensembles from Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and Bottega Veneta.

KATE UPTON seduced the camera in her revealing cover shoot for Vogue Italia, celebrity news reports.
Kate Upton went high fashion for her luxurious cover shoot for Vogue Italia’s November issue, showing further why she’s one of the world’s new favorite models.
The Sports Illustrated model, who has been clad in mostly bikinis (if anything) for her features, finally covered herself in more layers of stunning clothing while also flaunting her curves and putting her boobs in display in other fetish-inspired ensembles.
We have to admit that she’s come a long way since she was publicly snubbed by Victoria’s Secret!
Watch the behind-the-scenes footage of her shoot below:
