It's been a while since 'The Hills' star Lauren Conrad donned a swimsuit in L.A, but finally the diva put aside her fears and slipped into various stylish swimwear pieces for Glamour, May 2012 issue. Her incendiary spread reveals a slender looking, confident Lauren Conrad that exudes elegance and style, so browse through a selection of LC's spread and take a peek at highlights of her interview with Glamor as she gushes on an array of subjects including her body image issues, her personal dating life as well as on what really happened on the reality show that introduced her to fame, 'The Hills'.

Image is very important for celebrities so no wonder that they pay a high attention to their physique, but it seems that the high definition cameras that help the paparazzi capture images of our favorite celebrities can unveil even the tiniest flaws. Lauren Conrad states that an unflattering photo taken by a photographer which zoomed on the cellulite covering her legs has had an immense impact over her self esteem. The reality TV diva turned designer tells Glamour that:

“On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I’m just petrified. A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that. I haven’t met a woman without insecurities. You just have to learn to play up the positives.”

Being a celebrity means being in the spotlight constantly and that means that paparazzi are constantly on the watch to capture every step of the hottest celebs in Hollywood. Apparently, this means that dating quietly becomes quite a challenge and sometimes things can get misinterpreted as Lauren reveals. She tells the magazine that:

“I wish I dated as much as people thought I did! It’s really funny because almost everyone that I’m reportedly 'dating' is a friend of mine. About half my friends are guys, and I’ve always gotten along really well with guys. You just have to laugh at it. I feel like most guys aren’t reading Us Weekly. Anyway, it’s not bad if somebody links you to one of your friends. For me, it serves as a distraction from my actual dating life. I can go and date people and not be bothered!”

'The Hills' was the reality TV show that helped push Lauren Conrad to fame, but how did all the drama take over the show? Well, finally Lauren dishes on what really happened on the show, saying that:

“During shooting, the producers would send us quick text messages telling us what to talk about. They couldn’t walk through the shot, so they’d just text me, like, ‘Say something quick about this story line.’ That’s why we were always checking our phones!”

Keeping grounded seems to be a very important thing for Lauren, who tells the magazine that she keeps grounded by surrounding herself by family and friends. She says:

“For me, the best way to stay grounded is to surround myself with friends and family who knew me way back. There’s nothing like cleaning my mom’s dishes or taking out the trash to remind me that I’m no different than anyone else.”
