Kate Upton: I Never Said I Wished for Smaller Boobs!

04/16/2014 at 03:12 PM ET

Don’t believe the hype: Kate Upton never dissed her famous chest, and she’s ready to set the record straight.

Earlier this week, quotes attributed to the two-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover girl, 21, portrayed her as someone who wished she could reduce the size of her chest at will.

“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 designs,” the U.K.’s The Sun on Sunday quoted her as saying. “Every single day I’m like, ‘Oh man, it would be so much easier, especially if people didn’t constantly bring them up,’ ” she said. “If I could just take them off like they were clip-ons.”

The whole story had us raising our eyebrows (what girl has ever said “go for the smallest bikini designs?”) and now Upton is confirming our suspicions — while promoting The Other Woman in Australia, she disavowed the quotes altogether.

“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!'” she said on Australian radio station 2DayFM. “I actually never said that. 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. Sometimes they don’t feel their best, but I love my body. I always feel incredibly grateful for what I have.”

She reiterated the sentiment on Twitter:

Did you buy that Kate wanted “clip on boobs?” What do you think of her response?

I think Kate Upton is lovely. She reminds me of Kathy Ireland. It’s refreshing to see a girl who isn’t all skin and bones.

Are we supposed to know what clip-on boobs even means?

Tamarin on

Who are they kidding? She flaunts them every chance she gets. lol

Kelly on

I can’t believe she’s only 21!!! she looks in her late 20’s!

Sorry but this girl is one cheeseburger away from Fat Central.

She is not that attractive, average at best. You see more beautiful girls on the beaches of Long Island in the summer.

She has huge sloppy jugs and a boring face.

Wow, Kerissa, your response is utterly hateful and quite disgusting. How can you talk about someone else’s body like that? It’s OK to have preferences, but to just trash someone’s body because it isn’t what you like? You’re everything that’s wrong with this society today. Disgusting people like you are the reason 11 year old girls are dieting and have low self esteem. Either shut up or learn to be kind.

I wish all I had to worry about was my hooters! What a stupid young woman worry about what doesn’t matter.

Catherine on

I think she’s gorgeous. I do agree with Kelly though, she looks older than 21.

Kerissa, her BMI is only 18.5. She is far from fat. I sense jealousy…”sorry”. You are nasty.

Katrina on

Where’s her waist line?
