Photos of Lauren Conrad Leaving Mr. Chow in LA, Quotes From Harper's Bazaar Interview

LC Doesn't Think Heidi and Spencer Are Brad and Angelina

Lauren Conrad joined friends for lunch at Mr. Chow in LA yesterday — shop her look here. We see less of LC now that she's living her life off the small screen, but she's still finding plenty of stuff to do beyond The Hills. In addition to keeping her pup Chloe perfectly styled, she has been at the top of the New York Times best-seller list for two weeks in a row. Lauren also recently sat down with Harper's Bazaar after posing for a photo shoot in a dark wig to chat about her what happens after reality TV. She said:

  • On Heidi and Spencer vs. Angelina and Brad: "They're completely different. The next time Angelina and Brad go shopping in the market and Angelina holds up two melons and smiles for a photograph, then they will be similar. . . .The face mask on vacation: I don't know if it was so funny because people really were being affected by [swine flu]. But otherwise [Heidi and Spencer] are very entertaining. You have to laugh."
  • On fame: "The last three concerts I went to, I was removed by security because I was a fire hazard. People crowd around you and you lose that whole personal-space concept."
  • On leaving The Hills: "My roommate went to Europe for two months, but I couldn't take a vacation without clearing it months and months ahead of time. My friends all got to date guys who didn't need to sign a release form. It literally affected the underwear I had to buy because I needed thicker underwear with a more sturdy band so it could hold up a microphone. I couldn't wear whites or prints because they don't look good on film. I had to consult a director of photography when I picked the paint for my walls because I had to have set lighting in my living room and kitchen. I had to have separate birthday parties for my filming and nonfilming friends. It's a closed book. I'm done. Against everyone else's will, I'm trying to take a break."

I don't think she's whining. I think she's saying that she decided that she was done with that part of her career, had weighed the pro's and con's, and what was important to her, and quit. It takes a lot of strength and self-confidence to look at a job and say "Despite the perks, it's not working for me anymore.", and move on. We've all done it. Good for her!

I don't think she's complaining at all, i think she is more of setting the record straight.... she's growning up and growing out of the Laguna/Hills stage of her life and moving on to something else. i think this is the 1st interview where she's been blatantly honest about how she felt about being on the show. if the Hills was really reality, the paint on her walls wouldn't matter....

I agree 100% with all the "cry me a river" comments. She gets no sympathy from me. She had better not think she would have a bestseller book on the NY Times list without the crappy show that she had to wear thick underwear for. She may not be boo-hooing but these kind of comments are hard to have sympathy for when she's the one who signed the effing contract to be on the show.

i agree with comment #1 and also to mannylove...i agree that she really wanted to have a quieter life but it is not good to say bad things about the show you've raked millions and have a more luxurious life... its a good decision for her to leave the show but at least be thankful what the show have provided for you... :)

Shes constantly been filming for MTV since she was 16, thats for 5 years. I applaud her for leaving all the money for a more private life. Shes not trying to play the pity card just stating the limitations of being on a reality tv show.

I agree with lenamike...she wasn't trying to get sympathy or all of your "boo hoos". She was just trying to explain some of the small restrictions of her everyday life that led to her decision to leave...despite the many the objections of MTV and so many others (because THEY make money off of HER too). Agreed annoymous number 21--she chose privacy over making anymore money off the show (when she very well could have) and now people thinks she wants sympathy!?? I agree her comments about H and S were funny--but then again I obviously like Lauren!

She's not crying poor little rich girl. Its easy for everyone to give her a hard time and say how they would feel or wha they would do in her sitaution but you don't know. Pepole need to choose a career that makes them happy and clearly the limitations set were not making her happy no matter what the salary was.

exactly, even though I think she's a great gal and everything. I would let the producers pick my underwear if needed per episode if I got paid as much as she did. Heck, i'll even stay single for a few years since they practically gave her a career to start with.

If I got paid $60K an episode, or whatever she made, leading to book deal, clothing line etc, etc., i wouldn't mind letting my producers pick my paint colors etc! My boyfriends would have to deal, I'd buy them dinner every night, courtside seats...I don't feel bad at all
