When Kate Upton felt terrible

Los Angeles: Supermodel Kate Upton says she felt terrible with the way people started looking at her post her first appearance on the cover of magazine Sports Illustrated.

"After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something," Upton said.

The 21-year-old also said that she felt as though she was being treated as a toy and a stereotypical blonde by people around her, reports aceshowbiz.com.

She recalled that once she wore a cross necklace bought for her by her mother to a photo shoot, but it was taken away by someone on the set, and that person said: "Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious."

Despite her past experiences, Upton is open to having a loving relationship with a boy.
