On the backlash to her nun character in The Three Stooges:
I understand why the Catholic Church is angry with me. But it's all just a joke.
On being teased about her lack of curves when she was younger:
In junior high school [people] made fun of me because I was ‘flat.’ They said I was ugly because I did not have boobs. So I have always envied those who had. When I finally grew up and [they] appeared… I'm in love!"
Kate Upton is still getting fashionable as she poses covers Sunday Times.

Even with the criticism she has weathered the storm and still continues to get major covers and modeling jobs. Not everyone is on the Kate bandwagon as a Pro-anorexia website, SkinnyGossip, has posted scathing comments about Upton. A writer on the site says she looks "thick and vulgar." They also go on to make comments like:
“Guess who?! Yes, it’s the lovely Kate Upton, confidently lumbering up a runway like there’s a buffet at the end of it,” the anonymous poster writes.
“She looks thick, vulgar, almost pornographic – and she is a solid Alba too heavy for this outfit."
The write goes on to criticize Kate's Carl's JR. commercial, they said:
I thought cannibalism was illegal?!? If that’s not a very different species of cow, Kate could be in legal trouble!”
Supermodel Kate Upton appeard on Jimmy Fallon and showed him how to do the "Cat Daddy," a dance she did at a Terry Richardson, shoot which caused an internet sensation. The dance was so racy, it got banned by Youtube, before finally being allowed back on the site. Kate showed Jimmy how to do the dance, to the audience's jubilation, but Jimmy didn't seem to have quite the "swag" for the dance. Jimmy told Kate she should do because she was better at it than him. She was on the show promoting her up-and-coming GQ Magazine Cover for July 2012.
Kate Upton has to be the model face of 2012 being featured on Sports Illustrated, Muse and a host of other popular mags, so it was just a matter of time before she landed the mother of men's magazine covers GQ. The photo was released for the July cover and Kate is doing what she does best, posing in a sexy manner in a bikini top. In the magazine, Kate talks wearing bikinis and the best thing she had done since becoming famous.
“I grew up in Florida riding horses, so for the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit. I understand why my male followers like me.… It’s like any job. You find your strengths and play them up."
"For the GQ photo shoot, we were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I'm wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I'm holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier—it was so embarrassing…You wouldn't think that would happen with a one-piece!"
The cover, of course, is racy to say the least, and is sure to cause some upheaval. The edition is celebrating the Fourth of July and probably sure to be a best-seller! The edition goes on sale June 26, 2012

With all the controversy with Kate Upton's body and curves being on the runway, one place that is glad to welcome her body and her curves was Mexico City. Kate strutted her stuff in Mexico City's Fashion Week. This is a stark contrast to the stick-thin models that are walking down Paris Fashion Week. Since being announced as Sports Illustrated Cover Model 2012, Kate has been on a wave of success, most recently starring as in a Carl's Jr. commercial.
What do you think? Should there be more curvy models on the runway?
