Though her days of battling Kristen Cavallari and Speidi in the realm of reality TV are officially behind her, no way is Lauren Conrad headed for the unemployment line. But she doesn't expect to run up the aisle to collect an Oscar, either.
The former The Hills star, best-selling author, fashion designer and spokesperson spent her week launching a second clothing line and finalizing a deal to convert her semi-autobiographical novel L.A Candy into a feature film.
"I think my acting is offensive!" Conrad, 23, tells PEOPLE in response to a question of whether she'd consider playing the movie version of Jane Roberts, the heroine of her novel. "I'm an awful actor, I'm not super comfortable with it. In fact I was just trying to do lines … and they'll tell you, I cannot memorize lines."

Call it a case of art imitating life imitating art imitating life, ad infinitum.
That's right: Lauren Conrad's novel about a regular gal whose life changes when she stars on a reality show is going to be made into a movie.
The producers of the megahit movie series Twilight, Temple Hill Entertainment, have acquired the rights to turn L.A. Candy into a motion picture, Variety reports.

She's already a reality TV star, designer and author, but Lauren Conrad may soon be adding "producer" to her resume.
The Hills star, 23, whose debut novel L.A. Candy topped the New York Times Best Seller list, could be taking the book to the big screen.
"Lauren's goal is to get into producing – it always was," a source tells PEOPLE. "It was always to make L.A. Candy into a film or TV show. She's been in talks about it"
And while "no deal [is] in place just yet," adds the source, "that's her ultimate goal."

She said goodbye to The Hills but Lauren Conrad is still a fan favorite: Her debut novel, L.A. Candy, has topped the New York Times Best Seller list two weeks in a row.
"If someone said to me five years ago when this all started that I would one day make the New York Times Best Seller list I wouldn't have believed it," Conrad tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I am so honored that it is now a reality."
The novel, loosely based on Conrad's own life, follows of Jane Roberts, a 19-year-old girl who moves to Hollywood and ends up as the star of her own reality show.
