Kate Upton has denied claims she said she wanted smaller breasts.

The Sports Illustrated model was quoted as saying she wished she had smaller boobs ''every day of her life'' because her size 34D chest means she can't wear certain items of clothing, but she's now spoken out to deny saying that and insists she loves her body.

Speaking to Australian radio channel 2DayFm, she said: ''Isn't that lovely whenever the media makes up something? It's like, 'It's my body, I'll tell you how I feel about it!'

''I actually never said that. If someone asked me this question and actually cared to hear what I have to say about my own personal body ... I would say that I feel like all women feel like they don't have life perfect.

''Sometimes they don't feel their best, but I love my body. I always feel incredibly grateful for what I have.''

The 21-year-old beauty - who is currently starring alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in 'The Other Woman' - reiterated her feelings on her Twitter account to ensure her fans knew she'd never wish away her envious figure.

She wrote: ''Unfortunately, what was said about my body is completely made up to try and drum up controversy where there is none.

''Like every woman, I have moments of insecurity, but I love and am proud of my body - every part of it - and wouldn't change a thing.''
