Lauren Conrad opens up about her engagement to William Tell and more in the pages of the January issue of Cosmopolitan.
The actress says she was shocked when William popped the question:
“I had no idea it was coming. I thought he would wait until he finished law school.”
“He didn’t even ask my friends, which was a bold move.”
“He said, ‘I know you, and I know what you like.’ And I love it. It’s perfect."
As for advice for others that might be thinking of tying the knot, she advises not to rush it.
“You have the rest of your life to be married. Enjoy falling in love. When girls get caught up in the timeline, it becomes more about the wedding than the marriage. You should be with someone with whom you could elope this weekend and be happy.”
“William hates it when I say this, but he really is a very nice guy, and when you meet a nice guy who also manages to keep your interest, that is the dream.”
“If you’re going to settle down, it should be with someone you can’t stop thinking about. Especially if you’re in your 20s. If I were single in my 60s, I would totally settle. I would!”
Interesting advice. Do you agree? Read the rest of the interview after the jump.
"It feels done for me. I'm OK with it being done. I destroyed my voice when I moved to L.A. There are polyps all over my vocal chords because I was in a lot of loud places. If you listen to the first episode of Laguna, my voice is completely different."
On fans of the hit MTV show that judged her:
"I only ever got to tell half of my story. People are very quick to judge these days, especially behind the anonymity of a screen name," Conrad says of her career as a writer. "It's very easy to say, 'I hate her, I hate what she wore, she seems mean.' But you're only seeing a small fraction of her life."
She ignored negativity, especially online saying:
"You realize it doesn't matter," Conrad says. "It's so simple, but it's a very hard lesson to learn. At the end of the day, it doesn't really affect you in any way."
And on her current love-life with William Tell, whom she met on Vantentine's Day of 2012.
"He is very good for me because we have a lot in common as far as where we grew up. It's the first time I'm with someone and I'm not explaining things. He also has experience in the entertainment industry, so he understands a lot of things that people don't always get."
Success with her clothing line and other products is what has kept the star relavant today!
We all know that the famed MTVshow The Hills were as fake as Heidi Montag's breasts - but now we have new video of Kristin Cavallari admitting that is was all scripted and even more, the fact that she hated Lauren Conrad!
In an interview with Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, Cavallari touched upon both of these subjects.
"Fake relationships, fake fights ... but it was fun, 'cause you're acting. And that was more fun for me."
And on her dislike of Conrad?
"I feel like they put things in our heads," she says. "We were 17 and 18, and they made it a lot worse than it was."
Cavallari is now engaged to Chicago Bears Jay Cutler and recently gave birth to their first child.
Lauren Conrad is sticking up for her early acting attributes, especially in that lame, total hit show called The Hills.
Conrad told the November issue of Allure in which she covers, that the show was very honest -- some of it she admits was exaggerated, but the over all stories on the show were true.
"I think the story they told wasn't a dishonest one. The way they did it sometimes was. They aren't going to be there for everything. Sometimes two of their main characters will get into a fight, and that's important to the story line. The [producers] need that reenacted."
Even the romance between the 26 year-old actress and Brody Jenner:
"Brody and I did date. It was pretty brief. There was definitely editing to drag it out."
And now for her current real-life love with whom she is currently dating musician William Tell:
"You don't want a slob, but you don't want a guy who is constantly borrowing your tweezers. ... The last year and a half, I was dating a lot, and it's slim pickings."
So maybe some stuff on The Hills was real, but lets face it Heidi Montag's breasts were defiantly NOT!! Just saying...

On shyness: "On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I'm just petrified," she says. "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."
On her Hills co-stars: "The show is what brought a lot of us together, and when it was gone, we didn't have anything in common anymore."
On staying grounded: "The best way to stay grounded is to surround myself with friends and family who knew me way back when," Conrad says. "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."
