Kate Upton will not pose naked anytime soon.

In an interview with Details, the model is asked about Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and other famous style icons who have been shot nude by prominent fashion photographers.

Will she follow suit?

“For me those photos are art,” says Upton. “Your body is art, your body is beautiful, and to be photographed in that way is amazing and it’s received in a very positive way. But with social media and the Internet and not so great blogs and the attention like that, I don’t think that my pictures would be received in the way that I’d want them to be received.”

She continues, “That’s why I’ve stayed away from them. I really appreciate those photos and I think those women are beautiful, but I think social media and the Internet has prevented me from putting myself out there like that.”

What’s it like to be known as a “bombshell”?

“It’s where I’ve started and it’s what I’ve accomplished, so I’m happy about it,” says Upton. “But the more my career grows, I think that people will see that I have a lot more to offer and a lot more to give, but I want to do it right and that’s why it’s taking me time. I’m patient about it.”

She goes on to explain, “Now it’s out of my hands — it has kind of been rolling on its own — but at the beginning I was micromanaging every little step. For example, I felt that my agency before wasn’t helping me in the direction I wanted to go, so I approached IMG myself.”

“I always had in my mind where I should be at a certain stage,” says the model.
