Sports Illustrated subscribers the world over can breathe a sigh of relief. Supermodel Kate Upton is not looking to get a breast reduction. We repeat; the news was WRONG.
Actually, more than wrong. The news was MADE UP. For shame on British tabloid The Sun on Sunday for putting these words in Upton’s mouth. And for glory on the Daily Mail for today setting the supermodel record straight:
Speaking in an interview on Australian radio station 2DayFM on Wednesday while promoting her new movie The Other Woman, the 21-year-old denied ever saying she wanted a breast reduction.
“I actually never said that,” Upton told hosts Dan and Maz. “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…”
Upton continued: “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!'”
It’s rare for a Daily Mail article to double as a PSA, but in this case, per the reader comments, no doubt:
Sheamus, Baltimore: Geez that rumor almost gave me a heart attack! Thank GOD!
Pat, USA: Whew. We dodged the bullet there.
