While she hasn’t been gracing our TV screens for what feels like forever, you may have noticed that Mischa Barton is back in the spotlight this week due to a highly controversial photo shoot with photographer Tyler Shields involving some bizarre poses with slabs of raw meet (see below, ewww)
The somewhat troubled starlet has seen her career plateau since the OC came to an end in 2006, (yes I still mourn its absence and drooling over Adam Brody each week) but despite her personal issues she is still undoubtedly one of Hollywood’s more gorgeous girls.
I stole a few minutes to do a quick fire Q&A with her and was surprised at her answers (note the final question, who’d have though!)
Thanks for talking to me Mischa, what do you have in your make up bag today?
Lip Balm (By Terry, Rose Balm)
When do you feel most beautiful?
In jeans and a hot top
Do you have a beauty Icon? If so, who?
I find it hard to name any one person, there are just so many great people out there! My Mum has always been a great influence on my style; particularly during the more formative years.
As a high profile star, do you feel pressure from the media to look ‘perfect’
I tend to just be myself when working and not working. There’s no denying that I’ve developed a certain awareness of being watched whether on-screen or off, but it comes with the territory, so when I’m not portraying a character, I’m just being me.
