"After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I'm not a toy." - Kate Upton Sorry that having an amazing body helped you land one of the most prestigious magazine covers in the modeling world, Upton. We can't imagine why men would ogle you when you're simply posing for men's magazines in skimpy bikinis. Life is rough when you're a beautiful 21-year old getting paid millions to look hot and have guys fawn over you.

Supermodels are back in a big way with famous faces like Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and Cindy Crawford dominating ads and magazine covers once again, and new "It" girls like Kate Upton and Karlie Kloss poised to take over. The one thing every model has in common? Absurd soundbites about how rough modeling is. Kloss, a 21-year-old Victoria's Secret Angel has been extremely popular on the runways in recent seasons with her famous zombie walk, but she claims she's having a tough time casting for fashion week this time around. The reason she insists designers are cutting her from their lineups? "You are too famous," she told Vanity Fair in a recent interview, rolling her eyes. "No one will pay attention to the clothes." Poor thing. She's just too big of a name and too pretty that's she'll distract from the gorgeous gowns. How does she live with herself! But Kloss isn't the only beauty suffering from #modelproblems. Check out some other models with complaints we could only dream of. - Andrea Arterbery, Shine Staff
