Glamour Magazine features former reality star, current writer Lauren Conrad this month – and here are 2 interesting parts from the interview:

GLAMOUR: Have you ever tried hair extensions, or is this all your own?

LAUREN CONRAD: Well, I consider it mine because I own it. [Laughs.] But these are all extensions. I chopped all my hair off to my shoulders. I thought I was doing a chic bob. It was so bad. I have the taped-in ones, which are great because they lie flat when you pull your hair into a ponytail. I couldn’t do the individual ones; they felt like bugs!

GLAMOUR: I love your honesty. On another topic, do you ever feel pressure to be super skinny?

LAUREN CONRAD: I’ve never felt a push to be stick thin. I work out and eat healthy, so mostly it’s about being in shape and having energy. But about a year ago, I looked down and thought, I have cellulite. Where did that come from? I went through treatments; [my body] was like, It’s not going anywhere. Recently my boyfriend and I went to Cabo. We sat down on the beach, I took off my wrap and some woman pointed out a boat full of paparazzi. I was like, “There goes my tan”

    • agreed, I think she’s one of those celebrities like Drew Barrymore who is grateful for her natural beauty, does work at it within her own set limits, doesn’t ‘over do it’ and would probably be a fun person to hang out with.

      We need more of these types!

  1. i looove lauren 😀 and i love that she never became unhealthy skinny despite being surrounded by super skinny people on the hills. she seems really down to earth and sweet and i think shes soooo pretty 🙂

  2. i think she never received pressure to be stick thin because she has a beautiful face and she has a nice body to begin’s not like she ever struggled with her weight, with the exception of some minor weight loss a few years ago she seems to be about the same size she was in high school.

  3. Don’t take away from her achievement of avoiding the peer pressure by saying, “Well, she probably never felt that pressure to begin with because she’s pretty and already small.” To some people, you can always be smaller, always be thinner, and if you look at that picture, someone would probably say, “Hey, did she gain weight? She should lose some weight.” I’m sure she’s heard someone say it to her before, but I’m glad she has ignored it. I’m glad that she keeps a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating right. That is what is most important and when you can be that disciplined, you are amazing. Go girl.

  4. Honestly, I highly dislike “The Hills” and everything affiliated with it.

    BUT I like Lauren’s honestly. This is an extremely beautiful lady who doesn’t seem to mind about discussing her imperfections, which makes her that much hotter.

  5. I don’t see why she would feel the pressure to be thinner. She’s only about one size bigger than the Hollywood ideal.

    I’m glad that rather than thinning down, she’s choosing to exercize and eat well.

  6. she used to really irk me but her candidness and down to earth attitude in recent interviews has been pleasantly surprising

  7. Wow – I think she has a really healthy perspective. She clearly doesn’t think she’s perfect but it happy with what she has (I would be too).
