Kate Upton became famous for posing in skimpy bikinis, but that's about as far as she's gone!
And as a successful model and actress in an industry that embraces nudity, it's easy to see why some people are puzzled by the fact that she hasn't participated in a nude photo shoot yet.
So when Miz Upton was finally asked why she hadn't stripped down in any pics, she was happy to give a reason — but it's one that's fairly unexpected!
The buxom beauty explained:
"For me those photos are art. Your body is art, your body is beautiful, and to be photographed in that way is amazing and it's received in a very positive way. But with social media and the Internet and not so great blogs and the attention like that, I don't think that my pictures would be received in the way that I'd want them to be received. That's why I've stayed away from them. I really appreciate those photos and I think those women are beautiful, but I think social media and the Internet has prevented me from putting myself out there like that."
So basically, Kate thinks that if she were to ever pose nude, people would spend so much time drooling over her hawt bod that they couldn't truly appreciate the art she was trying to convey!
Which is probably 100% correct!
Guess her Sports Illustrated body paint pics (like the one above) will have to suffice until she changes her mind.
