Glamour’s May issue is showing a whole new side of Lauren Conrad! The California beach native showed up on the cover wearing only white bikini bottoms, but isn’t posed seductively as others often do. This young lady has a good head on her shoulders and remembers where she came from.
Although she was at ease taking the pictures for the article, she admits she isn’t usually so daring in showing off her body. “On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that” says Conrad.
Well, she certainly has nothing to hide! Even after the cover hit stands she was surprised at what picture ended up on the cover saying, “That was supposed to be a very small inside shot, and I saw the cover, and I was like ‘Oh my!’ I blushed when I saw it. I was like, ‘That is a lot of me!’” Lauren doesn’t seem to regret it though, commenting, “You know what? Why not [do it] when you’re young!”
In Glamour’s article she recalls details about shooting scenes for “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach.”
“During shooting, the producers would send us quick text messages telling us what to talk about. They couldn’t walk through the shot, so they’d just text me, like, ‘Say something quick about this story line.’ That’s why we were always checking our phones!”
And about those forged friendships for the show. Conrad reveals that she doesn’t keep in touch with too many of her costars saying, “The show is what brought a lot of us together, and when it was gone, we didn’t have anything in common anymore.”
This beauty has always been one to stay out of the party scene of young Hollywood and has definitely made a name for herself. Lauren has been a busy bee from starting her own successful clothing line, Paper Crown, to becoming a best-selling novelist with a new book, The Fame Game.
Despite being famous, this young lady knows how to stay true to herself. “The best way to stay grounded is to surround myself with friends and family who knew me way back when. There’s nothing like cleaning my mom’s dishes or taking out the trash to remind me that I’m no different than anyone else,” Lauren says.Tags: Glamour, glamour magazine, Laguna Beach, Lauren Conrad, Lauren Conrad Glamour Magazine, Paper Crown, The Fame Game, The Hills
