Sydney, May 5 : Holidaying in Hamilton Island was a relaxed affair for Mischa Barton, until a snapper caught the OC star sunbathing without her top on.
It was when the 22-year-old actress was spending two days on the Island with her mum, that a paparazzo clicked her sunbaking topless.
"We went out from Hamilton to a tiny island to relax in the sun and all of a sudden Jamie Fawcett jumped out of a bush with a massive camera lens and took photos of me. He'd followed us in a boat!" the Sydney Morning Herald quoted the fuming actress, as saying. She added: "He's a ridiculous human being. I've never abhorred anyone more. I was so angry I went up to him and said how disappointed I was with his behaviour. He apologised but he was very insincere."
The Brit-American actress said that the photog again used a speedboat to try to take pictures of her in her room and hogged after them at the Qantas Club as she and her mum were leaving to return to Sydney.
"Talking to him, he's not a straightforward person. That's why I live in Paris, because I get the privacy I want there," said Mischa.
However, with the piracy on her privacy apart, she said that she had a good time with her mother at the uber-luxurious Qualia Resort.
"I went jet skiing and scuba diving and saw some beautiful coral. I haven't had a vacation in a long time so I just laid out and relaxed - it's just been the two of us with our own pool. Real mother-daughter time," she said.
