Washington, July 19 : 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 didn't 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... I've done a lot to pay back for what I did," she added.
"I make mistakes, and I never claimed to be perfect. It's weird. The way I live my life, I don't want to be so closeted that I just have to shut myself off and become some protected young starlet that's 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 I've come out of 'The OC,' why would I want to go back on another series that is exactly the same?" she asked. "It's just not what I wanted to do, and it's not the kind of material I'm looking for," said Barton.
