Mischa Barton looked more radiant than ever as she stepped out in a casual outfit this week.

The former OC star, 34, appeared to look healthy as she ran some errands and stopped off for a coffee on Tuesday.

The Hills: New Beginnings actress went makeup-free for her trip out in Los Angeles, covering up with a face mask amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Mischa clutched a large briefcase-style bag on her left arm and appeared to be speed-walking towards her car.

She looked relaxed in a white slogan T-shirt and skinny jeans, which she paired with a smart black blazer and white trainers.

Mischa seemed to be in good spirits as she headed home after a long day of ticking off things on her to-do list.

The actress is looking extremely well and it seems her wildchild days are a thing of the past.

During her rise to fame as a childhood star, Mischa hit the headlines for her erratic behaviour, with her rep confirming she had been hospitalised for suffering an adverse reaction after consuming alcohol with prescription antibiotics that she took for her bronchitis at the time.

She was also arrested for drink-driving, which she faced 36 months probation, alcohol education classes and a fine as part of a plea deal.

Reflecting on the dark time, she previously told Nylon magazine: "That was a low point for me. I never, ever would have thought I would be arrested.

"I was disappointed because it associated me with a group of girls that I would rather not be associated with. That was the biggest bummer for me – I didn't leave my house. I was too embarrassed. They made such a big deal out of it with these other young actresses, that, for a little bit, I wanted to crawl into a hole and die."

Mischa also claimed she was a victim of revenge porn in March 2017.

She took action after confirming at a press conference with her lawyer Lisa Bloom that an X-rated video featuring the actress had been shopped around with the starting price of $500,000.

Mischa said at the conference: "I just want to say that I have been put through an incredibly hard and trying time.

"This is a painful situation and my absolute worst fear was realised when I learned that someone I thought I loved and trusted was filming my most intimate and private moments, without my consent, with hidden cameras.

"Then I learned something even worse, that someone is trying to sell these videos and make them public.

"I came forward to fight this not only for myself but for all the women out there. I want to protect them from the pain and humiliation I've had to go through.

"No woman should have to go through this. It is a very hard thing to do but I am glad that I’m finally standing up for myself."

The star also made headlines when she started dating boyfriend Gian Marco earlier this year and the pair have been virtually inseparable since.

She previously dated Australian model James Abercrombie for two years, but they split in August 2019.

Mischa, who is a keen animal lover, shot to fame as a child star before landing her breakout role as Marissa Cooper in hit teen drama The OC.

Since then, she's appeared in films such as St Trinian's, Closing The Ring and Don't Fade Away, as well as TV shows including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

She also appeared as a contestant on Dancing With The Stars – the US version of Strictly – back in 2016.

Most recently Mischa was a cast member on reality TV show The Hills: New Beginnings.

She appeared on the show opposite some of the original castmembers including Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Heidi Pratt, Audrina Patridge and Brody Jenner.
