Upton: We all have the same struggles

Kate Upton "100 per cent" feels pressure to maintain her good looks.

The American model is often praised for her beauty, and also gets lauded for her enviable curves. While many may fantasise about constant compliments, Kate admits it can be a daunting task to keep herself looking so good.

"Oh, a hundred per cent. You know I'm a woman, so once a month I struggle with my body and it's really difficult. But I just always try to eat healthy and work out so that makes life a little bit easier," she told the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show.

Admitting to having a weakness for fried food, Kate balances this out with four gym visits every week.

Kate is a Sports Illustrated favourite, but also flaunts her natural beauty for make-up giant Bobbi Brown. The campaigns often feature the 22-year-old rocking a pared-back look, and Kate admits that she's on the same wavelength as Bobbi when it comes to attitudes towards beauty.

"Women are all the same in a sense, we all have problems. And I know I'm not supposed to say it, but Bobbi said this yesterday, all women have insecurity problems and they all want to be beautiful. We're all going through the same issues of life no matter what you look like or what your job is. So I go through the same issues," she admitted.

Despite her insecurities Kate's job requires her to look good at all times. This can be hard when she's put in testing conditions; like a 2013 shoot for Sports Illustrated.

"So the swimsuit magazine wanted to do all seven continents, and I was the lucky one who got to go to Antarctica. No but it was really cool, it was an adventure. We were breaking ice in a little raft to get to shore to take the pictures. So it was amazing, and it was something you can't say no to," she said.
