Audrina Patridge has one of the most celebrated bodies in Hollywood, and she proudly shows it off on the July 2011 cover of Shape.  The 26-year-old star opens up to the fitness magazine, revealing why she is not afraid to strip down and show off her gorgeous goods.

"I practically grew up in the water," says Orange County, Calif. native.

"I knew how to swim by the time I turned 4."

Audrina, who is photographed in skimpy swimsuits almost as much as she is with her clothes on, has a California girl mentality when it comes to stripping down.

"I don't even think twice about wearing a swimsuit because it's always been a part of my lifestyle, but I have girlfriends who are so afraid to show off their bodies, they won't take off their towels at the beach or pool."
