Mischa Barton is proud of her curves.
The actress - who was recently photographed in a bikini showing visible signs of cellulite - says as long as her rocker boyfriend Taylor Locke likes her body, she is happy.
She said: "I have a woman's body. I have hips and boobs so when I gain any weight it goes straight there, which I don't mind because it gives me curves. But it goes straight there.
"I get a womanly body. But otherwise if I'm being really skinny and eating less and working out more, I get more of a boyish figure. But I like my curves. I like having them. My boyfriend loves them! So whatever works!"
The former 'O.C.' star - who was born in Britain but raised in the US - also insists she has no body worries and does her best to stay healthy.
She added to America's OK! magazine: "I'm not self conscious about my body. I eat really healthily and I work out. Everybody has things that they are conscious of that they don't like but, like any girl, I talk about this with my girlfriends all the time.
"We work out and we eat healthy and we do what we do, I feel very comfortable. I come from a European family that's always very comfortable with their bodies. You are what you are as a woman."
