'I never said I wanted smaller breasts, I love my body', says curvy Kate Upton

Published 17/04/2014 | 07:48

Kate Upton loves her body, despite recent reports claiming she wanted a breast reduction.

The Sports Illustrated model has become famous for her curvy size 10 figure, but it was reported at the weekend that she wanted to reduce the size of her chest. However the 21-year-old believes she was misquoted when it comes to how she feels about herself.

“I actually never said that,” Kate told Australian radio station 2DayFM when asked about the breast reduction rumours. “If someone asked me this question and actually cared to hear what I have to say about my own personal body... I would say that I feel like all women feel like they don't have life perfect."

Kate was appearing on air alongside her The Other Woman co-stars Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. While she is the curviest of the bunch, the American actress continued to explain how happy she is with her looks, which raised cheers from her film mates.

“I love my body. I always feel incredibly grateful for what I have, but I think there are times when all women don't feel their best,” she explained. “Isn't that lovely whenever media makes up something, it's like: ‘It's my body I'll tell you how I feel about it!’”

Her love of her shape is in contrast to earlier quotes used by British newspaper The Sun on Sunday.

“I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I would love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini design,” she was quoted as saying. “I know I say I wish I had smaller boobs - and that's true because at least twice a day I wish that. But the grass is always greener, as they say!”
