Kelly Brook blames her large breasts for ruining her modelling career.
Kelly, whose bust size is 32E, gave up on her catwalk dreams because the fashion world didn't like her curvy figure.
She told Live magazine: "None of the fashion agencies would touch me. Kate Moss ruled - they wanted an androgynous waif."
The 29-year-old brunette - who was recently axed from the 'Britain's Got Talent' judging panel after just five days - started modelling swimwear when she was just 16.
But the TV presenter, who still does shoots for men's magazines, says her sizeable breasts meant she was the "wrong girl" for fashion.
She said: "I've always had a problem with them. I've struggled with fashion because of my build and I never have, and never will, be a fashionable-looking girl.
"I was the wrong girl at the wrong time."
But while Kelly says her body hindered her career, she "doubts" she will ever want cosmetic surgery and admires celebrities who refuse to go under the surgeon's knife.
She said: "Elle Macpherson is in her 40s and looks amazing, as does Lauren Hutton and she is 65. I don't have any body hang-ups.
"I have never wanted surgery and doubt I will. I would like to grow old gracefully."
