Washington, October 25 : 'O.C' star Mischa Barton, who is known for her string of high profile relationships, has admitted that she feels 'great' being single.
The 22 year-old, who split from 'Rooney' front man Taylor Locke in September, further revealed that even though she was unaccustomed to being without a relationship, yet she thinks its 'important' to take a break.
"I'm not used to being single, but it's really nice. It's great, actually," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"Just embrace it. It's important to breathe for a minute," she added.
The actress is said to have ended her seven-month relationship with Locke just after returning from a three-week charity safari trip to Africa where the couple was reportedly in conflict all the time.
