Kate Upton Says She Felt ‘Terrible’ After Her First Sports Illustrated Cover Because Guys Kind of Suck

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.
