Brit actress Mischa Barton has decided to go online and reassure her fans that her weight loss was all due to a balanced diet and exercise.
Barton, 23, who was photographed sporting a skinny frame, insisted that there was nothing wrong with her health, and that the new look was all because of her recently adopted clean living habits.
"Just so you guys know, I'm happier and healthier than ever. Things are really well in Mischa world and I've just been watching what I eat," the Daily Express quoted her as having written on her blog.
"I still love my Pilates and yoga, and have cut back on fatty foods a bit. My time in India and Paris really just helped me lose a little bit of weight but there's nothing drastic going on!" she wrote.
She also added that media speculation about her body was actually harmful to her young fans.
"I think it's very unhealthy for young girls to read about and pay attention to," she said.
"To my female fans: Just be happy and secure with yourself and don't let other people's perceptions of you dictate the way you live your life," she stated.
