On the hit MTV series The Hills, Heidi Montag plays the role of Lauren Conrad's supportive BFF - and the romantic rival of ex-pal, Audrina Patridge. That biatch!
But in a surprising and candid interview with Us Weekly, Heidi Montag boasts she's even prouder playing a scantily-clad blondie in an 8-page spread inside the March issue of Stuff magazine, which Us has - thankfully - obtained a sneak preview of (see below).
When not posing nearly nude, Heidi Montag has also been recording an album with producer David Foster - and is a little bitter about not being Stuff's cover girl.
"They said they couldn't put me on the cover until I was 21," said LC's confidant and pal on The Hills. "I guess advertisers don't like young girls being on the cover."
Montag, who played matchmaker by hooking Conrad up with bachelor-about-town Brody Jenner, reveals even more than her hot body in an interview with Us:
Us: What do you think about not being old enough for the cover?
Heidi Montag: "I do think it is unfair that I didn't get the cover because of my age, but I understand, and it gives me something to look forward to when I turn 21."
Us: Do you think the photo spread is sexy?
Heidi Montag: "Obviously, they are sexy. Mostly because I am hardly wearing anything! I was excited to show a side of myself that people don't get a chance to see just watching The Hills. Spencer Pratt (her manager-boyfriend and Hills co-star) definitely likes them!"
Us: What does Lauren Conrad think of the pics?
Heidi Montag: "She will probably think they are provocative, but hopefullly she will like them."
Us: Were you nervous about doing the shoot?
Heidi Montag: "I was definitely nervous about this shoot. It is my first big spread in any magazine and it was a very sexual photo shoot. I wore different swimsuits and outfits. The most provocative photos were either the ones in the pool where I am splashing around in the water, or the poses on the bearskin rug. I definitely had a lot of fun doing it."
Us: What's your message to your teenage girl fans by taking sexy photos like these?
Heidi Montag: "If they get a chance to do a [national magazine] photo spread [at my age], and they feel comfortable with their bodies, then they should do it. That's my message."
Us: So you want to be a pop star?
Heidi Montag: "I am working on my album right now. The sound is going to be very fun, fresh, sexy. It will be the Pussycat Dolls-meets-Gwen Stefani, with a dose of Fergie. I grew up dancing so there also will be a lot of performing. And a lot of my songs will be very sexual."
Us: Do you think Audrina is going to be jealous of your spread?
Heidi Montag: "Ha! I would be, but I honestly don't think she will be."
