Kate Upton branded 'too American' by agency

Sep 14 2013, 3:32am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Kate Upton was told she was "too American" to be a model.

The curvy beauty - who is now one of the most recognizable pin-ups in the world - was outraged when she was initially rejected from a major agency who assumed she would be too "lazy" because of her nationality.

She revealed: "I'm not going to name names, but one agency told me, 'You're too American, and everybody knows American women are lazy.' I was so offended! I've never been so offended!

"I was like, 'You know that you're in America, right?' And it wasn't 'American models' - it was 'American women are lazy', period! I feel like a lot of women would disagree with that. A lot!"

Kate, 21, headed straight to International Management Group - which is home to supermodels Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Karlie Kloss - after the shocking rejection, and was signed on the spot.

She enthused: "I walked in and they said, 'You're so American, which is great. You're exactly what we're looking for!' A totally different response, and I was like, 'That's who I'm signing with'."

Like many of her fellow models, the wholesome-looking blonde has embraced the power of Twitter to engage with fans - but top clients have been less impressed with her love of the social media site.

Kate told Vanity Fair magazine: "Negative comments come all the time, but they've numbed me out. I don't even notice it anymore. I enjoy Twitter.

"I have periods where I'm always tweeting, and then I'm dry for a while. Clients have caught on, and they're like, 'Do not tweet anything on this set!' and I'm like, 'Aaaaaaagh!' "

Kate Upton: ‘It was kind of inconvenient to be pretty, growing up’

Jul 30 2014 6:15am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Kate Upton covers the September issue of Elle UK. September issues are usually major fashion issues, but this cover is disappointing and boring. Kate’s wearing a Prada coat and a black turtleneck that covers her assets. I know Kate wants to go high fashion, but we’ve all seen her in a bikini on multiple SI: Swim covers. Why is Elle UK hiding Kate’s most prominent attraction? Her legs are nice, but Kate’s busty rep precedes her. These interview excerpts are interesting. Kate cla ...
