Kate Upton's curves are back in the news. This time, the model is opening up about her curvy body in a new interview for Elle UK. Upton is one of Hollywood's most beautiful women, but she did not start out that way. In fact, the model admits that she used to beg for her body to end up curvy when she was a young girl. The Spread It shared Upton's latest comments on July 27.

Kate Upton is helping redefine what is sexy in the modeling world with her curvy body. She is not rail thin like models from the past. She is curvy and sexy without losing all the weight. She has just the body that she wants to apparently. The model revealed she was very flat chested as a young girl, but that worked itself out as she aged. At 22, she is a successful model, and she is working on her acting career. She starred alongside Cameron Diaz in "The Other Woman" earlier this year.

In a new interview with Elle UK, the model said the following about her body:

"When I first started modeling, I was a normal catalogue model, then, I became a woman, and I was really excited… Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits… You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, ‘Yessss!’"

Upton's thoughts on Florida might be pushing it a bit, but she does not have to worry at all about being called ugly. Her looks have stirred up some debate though. She is changing the way people see models and body style. In the past, it was normal for thin and flat to be the norm, but Kate's curves are making it easier for women to show off their more natural bodies.

Will Kate ever show off more of her curves in an issue of Playboy? It is possible. The actress revealed more about her chances of a Playboy photo spread in a new interview with GQ UK. She said the following:

"I never like to say never because there are circumstances that I could do pretty much anything if it inspires me and if I think that it’s cool at the time. But right now, at this point in my career, I’m not doing Playboy."

Currently, the model is enjoying some down time. She was recently seen enjoying some fun in the sun with her current boyfriend. She is dating Justin Verlander. He plays for the Detroit Tigers, and she attended the game between the Tigers and the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday. She even showed off some bling on her hands that declared her love. However, the 'Justin' bracelet she wore on her wrist earned more attention than the bling on her fingers. The couple enjoyed some time in Cancun together during the All-Star break earlier this month, according to Perez Hilton.

It is safe to say that Kate is very happy with her body, and she has many fans that love her body as well. The definition of beauty and what is considered sexy is changing thanks to Kate's healthy looking body. Self-esteem issues for young girls are not uncommon. Some diet to extremes to fit the skinny definition of beauty. Curves are not ugly. Kate Upton is showing that.
