Kate Upton is proving she's just like any one of us.
Upton's journey in the modeling industry hasn't been an easy one.
Growing up in Florida, she was picked on at school for having long legs and bushy eyebrows. "Kids can be cruel," Upton says. "My mother would flip through magazines and say, 'Look, all these models have that, too.'" It was then that Upton says she "decided I wanted to be a model." The Michigan-born, Florida-raised beauty explained these aesthetic differences helped her foray into the fashion industry at a young age.
