In recent days, slender star Mischa Barton’s even slighter frame has been cause for concern among many celebrity weight watchers, but the former O.C. actress insists to OK! she isn’t taking matters to extremes, and reveals that pilates is her secret to looking svelte.
“For me, it’s all about pilates recently,” the 23-year-old told OK! during Tuesday night’s G-Star Raw luxury jeans fashion show at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. “I’m obsessed with pilates. I think it’s so fun.” And whatever you might believe, Mischa says she’s certainly not starving herself.
“I don’t do any crash diets,” she explained. “There’s nothing that I really do like that, because I’m always working. I mean, before I go do a film, I do workout more. I do get ready for a film and try to be healthy and in shape. And when I’m not working, I do less of it.”
To get into fighting form, Mischa says it’s all about the gym. “I do more cardio because I work long hours. Jogging, running — stuff like that’s really good before you do a film so you have more energy.”
Meanwhile, Mischa gives a “maybe” to remaking The O.C. a la the recent reboot of 90210. “I’m not sure that anybody’s ready for an O.C. remake,” she told OK! “Maybe I would do it. I don’t know. Marissa died, so it would be really hard to remake it. I don’t think she can come back from the dead, but maybe there’s another version of the show to be remade one day.”
