“Hills” star Lauren Conrad not one for acting

August 13, 2008

lauren.jpgReality TV star and fledgling fashion designer Lauren Conrad, 22, told celebrity television show “Entertainment Tonight” that her reality program “The Hills,” which will premiere its fourth season on Monday, will have plenty of personal drama in its new season – with a couple reconciliations thrown in the mix. 
    
The show, which follows the lives of young women in Los Angeles, will be all about real emotions, at least as far as Conrad is concerned because the California native said she can’t act.
    
“I tried (acting) when I first moved to L.A.,” Conrad said to ET. “I took a couple of classes. Awful. Any opportunity you have to make fun of yourself I think is fun to do, but acting is an art and I don’t think I have a talent there.” 
    
Maybe it doesn’t matter. “The Hills” is, after all, a “realilty” show and while she admittedly can’t act, Conrad truly has her eye on designing clothes. She will attend her first Emmy Awards ceremony on Sept. 21, but for her acting. Conrad is designing gowns worn by Emmy presenters. 

ET’s interview with Conrad airs on Wednesday night.
