Kristin Cavallari Putting Acting Career on Hold to Spend More Time With Her Family
While you'll be seeing Kristin Cavallari's name on some fabulous fashion this summer, there's one place you probably won't be seeing her moniker again anytime soon (unless you're watching reruns of The Hills): in film or TV credits. That's because the mom to 8-month-old Camden is committed to spending time with her family in her home base of Chicago, where her fiance, NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, plays for the Chicago Bears.
"I've passed on a couple of things that would have kept me here in L.A. because my fiancé Jay has to be in Chicago, so if I was here, we would never see each other," Kristin told Coco Eco magazine of acting gigs that she's declined. "The sacrifices we make for love…"
The 26-year-old former star of The Hills and Laguna Beach is instead dipping her toes into the fashion world. Kristin just launched her spring/summer shoe collection with Chinese Laundry — which includes trendy sandals, wedges, flats, and pumps — and recently released a jewelry line.
"It's easy to get wrapped up in your career and have that be your only focus, and I want my marriage to work and last — and family comes first," she said. "The design work is great because I can do most of it from Chicago and I have so much fun with it. I love it and it all works out."
And what about that other full-time job she has? (And by full-time, we mean 24/7!) Kristin says motherhood has brought her many gifts. “It’s amazing. I mean, yes, there are tough moments, but it’s the most rewarding job I’ve ever had,” she revealed to Access Hollywood. “It’s so much fun. Every day is something new and exciting.”
