Posted Thursday July 3, 2014 5:03 PM GMT

At 22 years old, supermodel hottie Kate Upton is in the prime of life so naturally the media can’t seem to get enough of her.

The “Other Woman” star told British Vogue she’s managed to avoid getting all riled up about the various erroneous stories written about her supposed weekly romances by just ignoring all of it.

Upton explained, "Reading things about myself that aren't true drives me crazy! I've managed to block it out, but my family really hasn't—so they'll read about me and then call me up saying, 'Are you alright? I saw this happened,' and mom call and say, 'Well, I saw you went to Vegas, when you could have come to the family reunion...' and I'm like, 'Mom, I swear, I'm in Europe!' It's insane!"

Moreover, Kate credits her mom for giving her the most valuable career advice she’s ever received. "My mother always taught me that smiling when you walk into a room is the best beauty secret, so if I'm nervous when I walk in I just smile, and I think everyone warms to you quicker that way."

"Sometimes people look stern when I come on set, just because they're concentrating or getting ready for their day, but I'll chat and smile and finally I break them down!"
