Mischa Barton is "obsessed" with Pilates.
The 23-year-old actress - who has sparked concerns for her health after displaying an increasingly thin physique lately - claims the low-impact exercise regime is the secret to her slim frame.
She said: "For me, it's all about Pilates recently. I'm obsessed with Pilates. I think it's so fun."
Mischa also hit out at critics of her weight loss, insisting she has never embarked on faddy diets or extreme exercise regimes.
She added to America's OK! magazine: "I don't do any crash diets. 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.
"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."
Mischa - who found fame playing Marissa Cooper in US TV show 'The O.C.' - also revealed she would consider starring in a remake of the popular programme.
She said: "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!"
