What makes Lauren Conrad's life oh-so-fascinating? Ask the California girl herself. Here's the beginning of LC's interview with Entertainment Weekly ...
EW: Looking back now on your life since Laguna Beach, did you ever think you would get the opportunities that you've had?
Lauren Conrad: None of us knew what we were getting into when we signed up for Laguna Beach, so everything that's followed it has been so crazy and unexpected. We were thrown into the spotlight very quickly [this year]. It was a lot more intense than before. We've had to deal with paparazzi following us, and when we go on dates, it's reported the next day. It's very weird.
EW: Do you have to adjust your life because of the constant attention? Like now maybe when you go out, you're not just going to wear sweatpants because someone might take your picture. Is there stuff like that you're conscious of?
Lauren Conrad: I think it helps that [Audrina, Whitney and I] are all going through it together, so we can relate. But yeah, you do have to take a second look in the mirror and those things. It's become a habit to do that anyway, because when you roll out of bed in the morning and make breakfast, there are cameras in the kitchen.
Lauren Conrad tells her side of The Hills story. Which is, like, her life!
EW: Is it true you had to move apartments because people were coming by?
Lauren Conrad: Yeah. We [film] the exterior of another building because people found out where we lived and what apartment we had, and so in the middle of the night â€" whether they were drunk or just crazy â€" people would come and knock on our door. It was scary for us. So we switched apartments but continued filming in front of the other one so people wouldn't know where we live.
EW: Does it ever annoy you how meticulous people have gotten when watching The Hills? For example, "nail polish-gate" â€" one scene showed you wearing red nail polish, but then in a scene that was presented as happening a little later that same night, the polish was gone. What happened there?
Lauren Conrad: The Hills is filmed exactly the same as Laguna Beach. So when people started picking out these very little things, it was weird to me because anyone who has worked on a reality show knows how they're filmed. We're not filming The Truman Show, we don't have cameras set up all around our apartment 24/7. Basically what they're doing is taking our lives and telling a story. For example, the night [of the nail-polish incident, while on a date with model Gavin Beasley], the cameras stopped rolling, and I went out to a club with [Gavin Beasley]. I went home and called [Brody Jenner], and the next day talked about it. [MTV] was like, We need to get that on tape, and since they're trying to tell a story the right way, I basically had to go and call [Brody Jenner] again, have the exact same conversation on camera. I mean, it's not lying, it's telling what really happened. It's just the way they film reality shows.
