Kate Upton, model on her way to super status, has needed to defend her body since she did her first cover for Sports Illustrated which is effing ridiculous because her body is insane, in the best kind of way. Her trainer, David Kirsch is now speaking out about her body which is weird because, 1. It sounds like he has to defend her body and 2. We never, ever have a trainer discussing a dude’s body.
Kirsch, who also trains Heidi Klum, Karolina Kurkova and Liv Tyler, talked to New York Magazine about Upton’s workout regimen and diet in a piece titled, Kate Upton’s Trainer Defends Her “Porky” Body. In a moment of “come on, everybody, like, duh, why are you all so daft” Kirsch says,
Look, she’s eating [well], she’s cleaned out of the junk, but ultimately it’s genetics. She’s got curves. There was no way I was going to “uncurve” her. That was never my objective.
Exactly and thank you. He goes on,
I love curves. She is the quintessential all-American girl. She’s fresh, sunny, and natural, and not too skinny. We’re not advocating that stick-thin, unhealthy, anorexic approach to modeling. She’s got a little extra meat. I love that physical aspect of her from her chest to curvy hip.
This is the part where naturally skinny girls love to say, “Oh my gosh, we have feelings too, why are you assuming thin women are unhealthy?” And, “Are we not ‘all-American’ just because we’re skinny?” 1. No one is saying that, shut up. 2. You were lucky enough to be born into what is, at least for this time in humanity, the prized body type. Sure, there might be a handful of people out there who tease you for being too thin, and that sucks, but that doesn’t compare to the millions of women who get teased for being too fat, when most of the time, they’re not fat at all, they’re just fat compared to the modeling industry which is what we’re basing women’s bodies on, which sucks.
I posted all of her pictures from SI [Sports Illustrated] on my Facebook and there were the people who said, “Oh she’s porky, she’s fat.” But my response is, “You guys are all entitled to your opinion, and I know I’m biased, but I would sooner have that healthy body than one that is too thin.” She also embraces it. She’s like, “I got great boobs. Hello, they’re there. They’re not going anywhere.”
And are gigantic boobs not just as coveted as a skinny wasitline? It’s like, no offense to Upton or girls with awesome cuves, but we just can’t win, can we?
