Mischa Barton

Despite some major drama in Mischa Barton's private life, it didn't get in the way of work.

Jaime Murray, who plays Vivienne on The Beautiful Life, insists Barton has showed no signs of wear and tear on the set.

"She was very lovely, well prepared, very professional and kind of Zen, boring," Murray told me at the recent BAFTA/LA tea party. "Everybody was very supportive and part of being supportive was to not talk about it."

Not so boring? Beautiful Life's co-creator and producer Ashton Kutcher

"I was kind of in a daze looking at all his gorgeousness," Murray said of a recent set visit from her boss. "But he broke it by coming up to me, sticking his hand out and saying he loved my work on The Beautiful Life. I thought maybe I was being punked."

And talking about gorgeousness, Murray, 32, said she would have been open to being a part of the show's naked ad campaign that featured pics of strategically covered-up stars Corbin Bleu, Sara Paxton, Ben Hollingsworth and Ashley Madekwe.

"So sexy, right?" she said. "I wouldn't have minded doing it."
