Actress Kate Upton says her agents were reluctant to get her casting calls because they were unsure if her body-type was right for the big screen.
The actress, who featured in "The Other Woman" alongside actresses Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann, struggled to get cast, reports contactmusic.com.
"It's weird that in the press they'll be like, 'Your biggest fight was with the industry and the designers,' and I'm like, no, my biggest fight was with my agents, trying to get them to sign me into the castings. I thought, how I'm going to come out of this will be an example for girls," said Upton.
The actress is recognised for her curvy figure but not everyone feels that the sports illustrated beauty's desirable physique is a positive thing.
