In MTV’s The Hills’ 10 Year- anniversary special, which aired on Tuesday, August 2, Lauren Conrad revealed one of her most uncomfortable moments on set.
“Actually, one of the scenes they show [in the special] is my first kiss with Brody, and it’s so uncomfortable,” Lauren told Us Weekly. “You can totally see this because [the crew members] knew we had previously kissed, and they said, ‘We need you to kiss on camera,’ because back then if it didn’t happen on camera, it didn’t happen.”
“All of these guys [from the crew] I had known for years, and they were so sweet to me,” said Lauren. “They felt like brothers to me, and I was like, ‘I don’t want to kiss a boy in front of you guys!’ It was just so weird, so it was really uncomfortable. And so they show the scene [in the special], and then they show me right afterward basically begging to be done and for everyone to go away.“
Lauren also revealed on the special that she and her co-star Brody Jenner had zero chemistry.
“He was my friend. I enjoyed spending time with him, but it just always felt forced,” said Lauren. “We knew the cameras were making it look like more than it was and there was so much pressure on me at that point to get a boyfriend or date someone who was willing to film that I just sort of let them do whatever they wanted.”
Despite the uncomfortable moments, the Laguna Beach alumni wouldn’t trade her experience on the reality TV show.
“Knowing what I know now, looking back I would absolutely do it again. It brought so much good to my life,” said Lauren. “While it was hard at times, it brought me to a place where I’m really happy and I get to do what I love and I feel really lucky. So, going back I would still do it again.“
