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!' "

After Sunday evening’s massive photo leak involving many celebrities’ (alleged) private photos, the internet pretty much lost it. Everyone’s yelling at each other from different sides of the room. These photos were intended to be private and were taken by or for significant others. There’s nothing wrong with private selfies, and these women should not be shamed. They are victims, just as male celebrities would be if it happened to them. (I am in no way advocating for ...
