Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton recently revealed her reasoning behind not taking it all off in front of the cameras.
The world famous model/up-and-coming actress revealed to Details that while she appreciates tasteful nude photos, social media has prevented her from going completely nude in photo shoots.
“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, said Upton, “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.”
The 22-year-old is no stranger baring skin and was even photographed in a barely-there bikini at zero gravity for Sports Illustrated. But Upton is sticking with her guns about not fully disrobing.
“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.”
Upton recently made her movie debut in The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz. The young model says she wants to continue acting as well as modeling, and her options are stacking up.
“You think you can do it all. I'm traveling everywhere and I'm trying to do everything and I can't.”
