Want a body like Kate Upton’s?

Apparently all you have to do is beg for it.

The Sports Illustrated model tells Elle UK that she was a “normal catalog model” when she started in the business. Then apparently things just started, well, blossoming.

“Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited about becoming a woman,” she gushed. “I've been begging for this body my whole life!”

The downside of being a curvaceous bombshell?

“After my first Sports Illustrated cover (in 2012), I felt terrible about myself for a solid month,” she said.

“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 (stuff) out.”
