In a new interview with Celebuzz, Heidi Montag discusses how her 10 plastic surgery procedures in 2010 and her Hills persona has held her back.
“I’ll never be able to be Heidi Montag, a normal person, again,” she told Celebuzz. “What [I've] done is something that you can’t undo and that’s what I didn’t realize. It’s a very different life. It’s like a lifelong sentence.”
Montag and her TV villain husband, Spencer Pratt, have been staying in Santa Barbara, California, at her father’s beach house, trying to reacquaint themselves into life without cameras. The two have been married since 2009.
“I’ve been…getting re-grounded and getting back to a normal life and figuring out what my goals and aspirations are,” she explained. “[Spencer and I] are not those people on The Hills anymore. We never were. It was more an acting role than anything else. But we played those character and when you start playing a character you kind of start to become more of a character.”
Montag explained that the person that appeared on MTV’s The Hills, which also starred Laguna Beach alums Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari, just wasn’t her.
“I didn’t realize that pretending to be this ‘Hills Heidi,’ this spoiled rich girl who I wasn’t, would almost destroy me,” she said. “I’m from really humble beginnings. I’ve never been this Hollywood diva, but you get caught up in what you’re pretending to be.”
As she looks toward the future, Montag says “I have two really big projects in the works that I just signed for 2013,” and adding that she can’t say what they are yet, they have “huge potential for long-term lifetime career, Fox News reports.
She and Pratt are now in a good place after having to “for our love against producers and MTV and family members and friends.”
She concluded,” I am very grateful for everything I’ve had but I will never make those mistakes again and I will never compromise myself and pretend to be someone that I’m not.”
