Kate Upton's sexiest magazine covers.
For those who were hoping to see Kate Upton in her full frontal glory one day, we have some bad news for you. The two-time Sports Illustrated cover girl doesn’t want to get naked.

In a new interview with Details, the 22-year-old attributes social media to her reluctance to strip down — well, completely, at least — for the camera. Though she knows that her body is looking pretty bangin’ these days, she’s afraid what the internet trolls will say when they see her in her birthday suit.

For me those photos are art. Your body is art, your body is beautiful, and to be photographed in that way is amazing and it’s received in a very positive way. But with social media and the Internet and not so great blogs and the attention like that, I don’t think that my pictures would be received in the way that I’d want them to be received,” she explains of nude photography. “That’s why I’ve stayed away from them. I really appreciate those photos and I think those women are beautiful, but I think social media and the Internet has prevented me from putting myself out there like that.”

But don’t you worry, you’ll still have plenty of opportunities to ogle at see a presumably bikini-clad Upton. After all, the model says she isn’t slowing down her career one bit.

“You’d be surprised how many offers I actually do get in fashion campaigns, but I unfortunately have to say no because my career is moving at such a rapid pace,” she says. “I want to hit all the top things.”

Upton continues, “The more my career grows, I think that people will see that I have a lot more to offer and a lot more to give, but I want to do it right and that’s why it’s taking me time. I’m patient about it.”
