Lauren Conrad: “I don’t want to act” because “I’m not that good at it”

The Hills star Lauren Conrad says she is giving up acting after her first try.

“I don’t want to act,” she told the New York Daily News’ Ben Widdicombe. “I tried it. … I don’t enjoy it, and I can’t make a career out of something I don’t really like. It’s not that fun, and I’m not that good at it.”

Lauren is currently appearing in the film Epic Movie as herself, and if appearing as herself stretched her acting abilities, she’s definitely making the right choice. Of that experience, she says, “I was in ‘Epic Movie’ for, like, two seconds, and then I died.”

Widdicombe calls this “[t]he best news out of Fashion Week so far.”
