Here's why at least one publicist has to be present when a celebrity is interviewed. In the February issue of Allure, The O.C.'s Mischa Barton participates in a look back at her many public appearances and offers such sensitive reflections as:
"I love Oprah. She's like this earthy, amazing woman. For some reason, you feel really small next to her."
"Tommy Hilfiger picked that dress for me, and it felt very cool and flappery. But I was like, 'There's no way I'm walking down the runway. You couldn't pay me enough money.' And they were like, 'C'mon, it's charity. Please. Tommy will give you the best dress.' I was so happy when it was over."
That last quote was about a Race to Erase MS event.
