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!' "

Jasmin Walia In A Bikini

Sep 11 2014 2:14pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

I’m not going to lie. I have no fucking clue who this brunette is. She’s on a British reality show and I’m pretty sure I can see where babies come from while she piggy backs her friend. Just watching her on the beach like this I am beginning to experience what I think Kate Upton felt when she found out her topless private photos had been leaked. That is a sense of outrage followed quickly by a thought of how fucking amazing my tits look on a smartphone c ...

Josh Hutcherson is sticking up for Jennifer Lawrence. But coming down hard on the sick moron who leaked her naked pictures. Not long after fellow actor Andrew Garfield went off on last week's nude photo hacking as violent, misogynistic and revolting, Hutcherson said he hasn't spoken to his Hunger Games co-star about the incident, but... “It’s f-ckin’ horrible," he told The Daily Beast, later expounding in a chat with ET Canada: "We’re people, too man, ...

Brittany Mason Is the Right Kind of Pageant Winner

Sep 9 2014 3:20pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

The only two times I pay attention to the phrase ‘former beauty pageant winner’ is when it’s followed by the word ‘topless’. I guess ‘shot into space’ I’d probably also click. ‘Shot into space topless’ I’d definitely click. I hate to objectify attractive women, it’s just really really hard not to. Kate Upton demanded she not be treated as a sex symbol only for us to discover she’s dancing naked and teasing Cy Young cock on camera in her apartment. I shouldn’t have seen that, ...
