Story of the Day: Mischa Barton Says She’s Nothing Like Lindsay Lohan

Posted by PZ on November 20th, 2012

Former ‘The O.C.’ actress Mischa Barton has denied being anything like fellow child star Lindsay Lohan. She says that although the two have known each other for quite some time, they’ve never become friends. She feels as though Lilo was a ‘Disney kid’ while she was more intense and smart growing up. These days, they only rarely say hello to each other and she believes that Lindsay often attracts drama:

”I was not a commercial product, I was a very intense kid, very book smart, not a Disney kid – that was more Lindsay’s bracket. We’re acquaintances, we might say hi to each other but it’s rare. I’ve known her since we were eight years old so there is a legitimate kind of – it’s not a friendship – but we know each other. I find there’s a lot of drama surrounding those girls. I’ve changed, I’ve always been an old soul but I think you see your arrogance even as you get a few years older.”

Speaking on her past, Mischa says that she does believe that she has made some mistakes along the way, but she didn’t end up like Paris or Lindsay because she’s simply not like them as a person, even though she has had the chance to sample their lifestyle and often went to the same parties as both girls:

”In retrospect I wish I hadn’t gone out with so and so and hadn’t befriended these people. Honestly, I’m just so different from those girls just fundamentally. I was on a hit TV show in Los Angeles and I was thrown into that world so I know Paris and Lindsay from being around. Unfortunately I’ve been at the same events as them over the years and in doing ‘The O.C.’ I’ve been in their circles plenty but I’ve never been their friend.”
