Fans weren't the only ones surprised to see Lauren Conrad topless on the cover of Glamour's May issue!
When Conrad spoke to MTV News at her Fame Game book signing in NYC Tuesday, the 26-year-old admitted she didn't think that would be the most talked-about shot. "There's a lot of me on there! Listen, that was a surprise to me," she laughed. "That was supposed to be a very small inside shot, and I saw the cover, and I was like, 'Oh my!' I blushed when I saw it. I was like, 'That is a lot of me!'"
"I didn't know that was going to be the cover. But that's how it works with magazines: If you take a photo, there's always that chance. But, no, I did not expect that to be the cover."
Conrad also posed in a white bikini top for Glamour — something she typically shies away from. "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 told the magazine. "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."
The Hills alum doesn't regret agreeing to take her top off for the magazine, telling MTV News: "You know what? Why not [do it] when you're young," she said. "Forty years from now, I'll be not looking like that. Might as well!"
