‘Mad Men’ Star Alison Brie: I Challenge Heidi Montag to a Mud-Wrestling Contest

Alison Brie may bear the name of a French cheese, but you won’t catch her cowering from a fight.

In fact, she’s picking one.

CCC

"Yea, it's on!" Alison (above) tells us of her Heidi smack-down.

Interviewed on WZAP Radio, the actress who plays Trudy Campbell on the AMC series Mad Men – and stars opposite Chevy Chase in the upcoming NBC sitcom Community – says she’s got The Hills star Heidi Montag in her sights.

When the subject of Heidi and her hubby, fellow Hills star Spencer Pratt, comes up, Alison tells host Zachary Sang:

“Don’t get me started. The only thing I would say about them is, Who cares? Why are they even famous?

“They need to get out of here. I’m over them. I was never into them. So I’m well over them,” she chuckles.

Later she adds, “I’ll unleash the fury on Heidi and Spencer. As we speak, I’m developing this rivalry. A few minutes ago, I didn’t even know them. Now I’m like, Yea it’s on!”

 CAPTION: Heidi: To our 'Mad' gal, her name is mud.

Heidi: To our 'Mad' gal, her name is mud.

Then comes her (mock?) call to arms.

“I’m going to challenge Heidi to a mud-wrestling contest,” she says.

This isn’t the first time Alison – who has also appeared on Hannah Montana – has linked herself to a bolder-face name.

In February, she defended that show’s star, Miley Cyrus, after the pop tart was snapped in a pic making slanted “Chinese” eyes.

“I think people are too hard on kids in the entertainment industry,” she told Usmagazine.com in the wake of the controversy.

“If your average Joe was put under a microscope and scrutinized the way Miley Cyrus is, they’d be doing a lot worse… Everybody makes mistakes.”
