Actress is proud to show off her figure

Mischa Barton has posed naked for a magazine, proving she’s happy in her own skin.

And the actress, who was snapped by photographer Roberto D’Este, responds to critics who’ve been negative about her figure.

‘Surely there are more important issues than if someone has cellulite?’ says Mischa.

‘And I don’t understand the point of people looking for bad things.

‘Why bother? I know it’s human nature to want to pick on other people, but I find it a little shallow.’

Mischa, 23, is content with the way she currently looks.

‘I’m happy now. I wouldn’t change my body, and I couldn’t anyway,’ she says.

‘The only way to be happy and be a more enjoyable person to be around is to embrace what you’ve got.

‘Everyone has issues about their body, but I feel confident now. I’m healthy and happy.’

The full interview with Mischa Barton appears in the May ‘Body Confidence’ issue of Cosmopolitan.
