Kate Upton has said her childhood on a farm was ideal preparation for life as a model.

The Other Woman actress, 22, was raised on a farm in Florida.

She told Elle UK magazine: " It made me very goal-oriented and focused. I'm not opposed to a hard day's work for a good outcome."

The Sports Illustrated model said that farm life taught her not to rely on her looks.

"Living on a farm, beauty doesn't get you anywhere. Because I was pretty didn't mean I could convince my sister to do my chores. It was kind of inconvenient to be pretty, growing up."

And she added: "I would be fine leaving all of this behind and living on a farm somewhere."

Kate told Elle: "Everybody at some point in their life doesn't like themselves. It's not like I look in the mirror and think, 'I'm killing it. My eyes are killing it.' No, a lot of times I'm puffy and bloated. I like myself in general, but there are days when you just don't.'"
