Kate Upton says her butt doesn't get enough attention — and she really wants the world to know that.

Sports Illustrated posted a new YouTube video of a behind-the-scenes look of the curvy supermodel's photo shoot for the latest swimsuit issue.

In the video, the blonde bombshell puts her derriere on display — and hopes it starts getting recognized just as much as her breasts.

"You know what? My butt doesn't get that much attention, so I think this shot will get it the attention it deserves!" she proudly declares (and, again, complains).

See her booty for yourselves in the video — and then keep reading to see every other time her body has been the main topic of discussion!

Another day, another magazine featuring Kate Upton talking — and complaining — about her famous curves.

And not complaining in the “I hate my body” sense. More like complaining in the “I had it so tough getting to where I am” sense.

The 21-year-old blonde bombshell is the cover girl for the June 2014 issue of British Vogue and puts her figure on display in a floral crop top and shorts set.

Kate opens up to Alexa Chung in the accompanying interview, explaining she’s had to challenge people in the fashion industry because of her figure – and how she’s worked extra hard to get jobs.

“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,” she says. “I thought, how I’m going to come out of this will be an example for girls.”

Even before she shared these words of wisdom, Kate’s body has often been the topic of discussion.

“I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I would love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini design,” she recently told UK’s The Sun.

“I know I say I wish I had smaller boobs – and that’s true because at least twice a day I wish that. But the grass is always greener, as they say!”

During promotion for her 2013 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover, she declared, “My curves are natural. They’re not going away no matter how hard I try.”

When she was interviewed in British Vogue last year, she talked to the magazine about the pressures women face.

“Anywhere in life, for girls there’s pressure to keep your weight and to keep yourself feeling and looking good. So, for me to do that in the public eye is definitely a lot, but I have the right outlook on it… If someone feels confident in their body, it should all work out.”

And back in 2012, the now two-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover girl was the target of a “thinspiration” blogger, who attacked Kate on her site SkinnyGossip.com. She called her “thick, vulgar, almost pornographic.”

Kate’s response? “I’m not going to starve just to be thin. I want to enjoy life and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable.”
