Heidi Montag, her robo-bod and unparalleled acting talents have caught the attention of an A-list director -- Ron Howard!

For reasons unknown, Howard collaborated with "The Hills" star on a new FunnyOrDie video -- which was directed by the Oscar-winning filmmaker.

For the record -- Meryl Streep hasn't even worked with Ron yet.
