5 Questions With: Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad"I've done a couple of cameos on shows, and it was fun just to do it for the day, but it's not really something I'm interested in."

'The Hills' and revamps the designs of her eponymous fashion line, Lauren Conrad is trying her hand at something new: voicing a character on Fox's 'Family Guy' (Sunday, May 3 at 9PM ET).

Playing who she plays best -- herself -- the 'Family Guy' version of Ms. Conrad is actually smarter than she appears on TV. So much so that LC admits there's quite a bit of acting involved -- she even hired an acting coach for the day to help get her through the complicated, tech-heavy lines.

Keep reading to find out if there's more acting in the future for LC, which 'Family Guy' character she thinks she's most like and what smart sitcom is her favorite show on TV. -- By Maggie Furlong

1. Are you a fan of the show? How did this cameo come about?
Yes, I am a fan of the show. I've watched it for years. A while ago, I did a couple lines on an episode where they were watching television, and they did a clip of 'Laguna Beach,' and that's how I met Seth [MacFarlane, the creator].

2. What's it like seeing a cartoon version of yourself?
It's fun. I mean, that's actually the most exciting part is to see what you look like animated. I think that I was basically just a blonde character though in this episode. [Laughs]

3. Which 'Family Guy' character do you think you're most like?
Wow, I don't know ... I don't know if there's someone I really want to be like on that show! [Laughs] Maybe Lois. I don't know ... I feel like she's the most normal. [Laughs]

4. Besides 'Family Guy' and 'The Hills,' of course, what are your favorite shows on TV?
Let's see -- I really like 'Lost.' I'm watching 'Brothers & Sisters' ... oh, and '30 Rock' is my favorite.

5. So with you getting closer to leaving 'The Hills,' are you planning on taking more acting roles or voice roles like this?
Acting, no. I've done a couple of cameos on shows, and it was fun just to do it for the day, but it's not really something I'm interested in. I did really enjoy doing this episode though -- I've been doing voice work for about five years just because of the show, so that's something I would be interested in.
