Laguna Beach Cast Photo
The cast members of MTV's Laguna Beach, which premiered in 2004 and will never be replicated. Here's a look at what the stars are up to now ...
No one became more recognizable and successful because of Laguna Beach than Lauren Conrad, or "LC." She went on to star in a wildly successful spinoff, The Hills, and almost more impressively, launched impressive careers in the beauty, fashion and even literary fields, with best-selling clothing lines and young adult novels. After coming of age in the public eye and a series of high-profile relationships, Conrad kept her private life private for the past several years. Just before the 10-year anniversary of Laguna Beach, she tied the knot with her fiance William Tell.
Kristin Cavallari, Lauren's one-time rival on Laguna Beach, later took over on The Hills as its chief antagonist after LC vacated her lead role. Both girls were head over heels for Stephen Colletti and pretended to date Brody Jenner, making for some unusual career symmetry. But the similarities end there. Kristin did some acting and modeling, as well as competing on Dancing With the Stars and landing a gig as a contributor to E!'s The Fabulist. Perhaps most surprisingly, she's a mom! Of two sons! She is married to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and lives there with the NFL star and their adorable kids, Camden and Jaxon Cutler.
Stephen Colletti, who held the hearts of Lauren and Kristin captive, went on to star in multiple TV projects, playing Chase Adams on One Tree Hill for four years and hosting MTV’s now defunct Total Request Live. More recently, Colletti had been promoting his short film Celluloid Dreams, a sci-fi/drama film premiered at the Dances With Films Festival in June.
Talan Torriero, once the life of the party and a major player on the B-list celebrity scene in L.A.s, seems to have left those days far behind. Living under the radar and happy about it, he's got a "real" career, as Creative Director at TMG Digital, and just got married to his beautiful fiance Danielle Torriero. He still has his good looks. And a nice dog.
Christina Schuller, now Christina Sinclair, married Chad Sinclair in 2011 and gave birth to their first child, a boy, in 2014. A certified fitness instructor, she has her own website and business, Beach Babe Fitness, which provides recipes diet tips, motivation and exercises. A graduate of USC, she still lives and works in Laguna Beach with her family.
