When Kate Upton landed her first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover in 2012, you'd imagine she was over the moon and incredibly thrilled with her accomplishment.
"After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I'm not a toy, I'm a human. I'm not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your shit out."
Strong words, but also completely true and warranted!
Just because Kate has been blessed with good looks doesn't mean she gets to be treated like a piece of meat!
And she certainly doesn't sound like a "dumb blonde" to us! Rooting for you, Kate!
