Instead of enjoying her moment in the spotlight, supermodel Kate Upton said she "felt terrible about myself for a solid month" after landing the coveted Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover in 2012.

"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, 21, told Elle magazine for its September issue. "I'm not a toy, I'm a human. I'm not here to be used. I am a grown woman and you need to figure your ---- out."
