Nicole Richie's opposing traits

Nicole Richie has "two sides" to her personality.

The 'Simple Life' star - who is the daughter of pop legend Lionel Richie - insists she is a very different person when she is on television and when she is working on her clothing and accessory ranges.

She said: "There are two sides to me. On TV, I'm very comfortable. I can be in front of the camera and I'm totally in that space and being the front person.

"But when I'm designing, I tend to go into a more introverted, quieter side. There are two different parts of my life."

The 34-year-old television personality - who has eight-year-old daughter Harlow and six-year-old son Sparrow with husband Joel Madden - also spoke about growing up with a famous father and how she organises family life around her husband's career as one half of The Madden Brothers.

She added to #Legend magazine: "My dad's touring is really all I know. For me, that's how I was raised. My dad would go off and work, come back and have home time.

"Oddly enough, that's how my own family works now. Joel's on tour all the time. We have our own calendar. We don't take summer vacations when everyone else does, and we do it whenever it works out for us."
