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!' "

Express & Kate Upton Campaign Launch Event
The inexplicably popular Drake used his forum as host of the ESPYs to throw shade at Macklemore. He’s still jealous that the talentless shitburger beat him at the Grammys to which he wore his very neatest suit. I wish Easy-E hadn’t died of The AIDS so he could set these kids straight, with a gun. Read what the handicapped kid from Degrassi had to say about Macklemore.

Detroit Tigers pitcher

Express & Kate Upton Campaign Launch Event
Detroit Tigers pitcher JUSTIN VERLANDER didn’t make the All-Star game this year, but I doubt he’s complaining. Because instead of going to that, he got to spend Tuesday with his on-again-off-again girlfriend KATE UPTON in Cancun. There are a bunch of photos of them hanging out on a beach, and Kate was rocking some pretty serious tan lines. Apparently the last time she was in the sun, she wore a pretty COMPLEX piece of swimwear, with several straps across the ba ...
