It’s that time of year again — Sports Illustrated is releasing their swimsuit issue, and the cover girl this time around is the vuluptous Kate Upton!

In a leaked photo obtained by TMZ, fans got a sneak peek at the 19-year-old beauty who appeared in 2011’s issue (which was covered by Irina Shayk) and was named Rookie of the Year, but this time around, it’s all about her.

Millions are bound to be talking about Kate and her beyond sexy cover, so Celebuzz decided to put together a little guide on what you need to know about Ms. Upton.

It looks like Brooklyn Decker before her (2010’s cover girl), Kate has caught the acting bug! Appearing in last year’s big screen release Tower Heist with Ben Stiller, she follows up that debut with the Farrelly Brother‘s long-awaited Three Stooges reboot. (So far, Brooklyn has starred in Just Go With It with Adam Sandler, and has both Battleship and What to Expect When You’re Expecting hitting theaters in May.)

Check out the Stooges trailer below.
