Mischa Barton went makeup-free as she grabbed a juice drink at Sunset Plaza in Los Angeles yesterday (April 8).

Barton showed off her legs in shredded short shorts, which she paired with a white T-shirt, black sweater and choker necklace. The 27-year-old actress, who shot to fame playing Marissa Cooper on "The O.C., looked glum as she headed back to her car.

And no wonder. Barton recently confessed that she's loving life out of the spotlight, so we're sure a run-in with the paparazzi isn't her cup of tea.

The British-born star admitted to the Daily Beast that her life is much calmer now compared to in her tabloid heyday.

“Luckily, [I’m not] so much in the spotlight,” Barton told the website. “The craziness of 'The O.C.' has died down and gone away. I’m so relieved it’s not how it was. It’s not the person. It was the time. Everything was an ‘it’ girl this or 'it' girl that. It was just over the top.”
