Reality television's most hated couple -- and yes, that is saying a lot -- are beginning to come to some sort of self-awareness, it seems. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, lovingly known as Speidi, recently told The Hollywood Gossip that they feel like cartoon characters, and like they're only called upon when a new TV show needs a villain:

“They brought us in to be Speidi and stir it all up. I feel like a cartoon character."

The comments came on the heels of the couple losing the UK version of "Big Brother" to Ryan Clark. Pratt told the gossip site in an earlier interview that he didn't actually want to be an asshole, he just knew that was what he had been hired to do:

"My talent for some odd reason is being an a**hole...These aren’t the people I was prepared to go to war with...And it was so hard to dig deep to even say a negative thing to be the bad guy. It’s been very difficult for me to be awful but there’s got to be a bad guy...There’s got to be a baddie. I had to step up...People pay my bills. I can’t come all the way from America and play the good guy when that’s not what they cast me for."

Pratt and Montag first rose to fame on the second season of "The Hills," when they became one of America's most loathed duos because, well, they kind of suck. Montag went on to get ten plastic surgeries at once in 2009, and their status as Hollywood weirdos was cemented.
