DUI arrest made Misha Barton want crawl into a hole and dieJuly 19th, 2008 - 6:18 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, July 19 (ANI): OC star Mischa Barton opened up for the first time about her DUI Arrest in 2007.
In an interview to Nylon magazine’’s August issue, the 22-year-old actress revealed that she was so embarrassed by her DUI arrest that she wanted to crawl into a hole and die.
That was a low point for me. I never, ever would have thought I would be arrested, Usmagazine.com quoted Barton, as saying.
I was disappointed because it associated me with a group of girls that I would rather not be associated with.
That was the biggest bummer for me I didnt leave my house. I was too embarrassed. They made such a big deal out of it with these other young actresses, that, for a little bit, I wanted to crawl into a hole and die.
Barton admits that she had made mistakes and has done a lot to pay back for her mistake
“It was a stupid thing to do. But… Ive done a lot to pay back for what I did,” she added.
I make mistakes, and I never claimed to be perfect. Its weird. The way I live my life, I dont want to be so closeted that I just have to shut myself off and become some protected young starlet thats removed from reality, but I was also just shocked at what a big deal people made out of it, she added.
Meanwhile, Barton confirmed that she was offered the role on Gossip Girl but she turned it down.
I was offered to play a role, but just because Ive come out of The OC, why would I want to go back on another series that is exactly the same? she asked. Its just not what I wanted to do, and its not the kind of material Im looking for, said Barton. (ANI)
