Heidi Montag: 'Hills Heidi' Almost Destroyed Me

Hungry fameball Heidi Montag's back and talking about all of those awful, awesome and alarming things that transpired three years ago. You know, like when she underwent a shocking ten plastic-surgery operations in one day and debuted a completely different face and body.

But the 25-year-old "The Hills" star, who together with husband Spencer Pratt once made up television's most-hated couple, swears they're different people now. (She must be tired of saying it: Interviews since 2010 have Montag continually expressing her regret over her plastic surgery craze).

Here's what Montag said in an interview with Celebuzz:

"I'll never be able to be Heidi Montag, a normal person, again… [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 characters and when you start playing a character you kind of start to become more of a character…"

“I didn’t realize that pretending to be this ‘Hills Heidi,’ this spoiled rich girl who I wasn’t, would almost destroy me… 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.”
