Tara Reid: My Partying Past Wasn't That Bad

USMagazine, Friday, March 16, 2012, 5:03pm (PDT)
  • Tara Reid doesn't have the cleanest reputation in Hollywood, but now that she is a bit older, she can revisit her hard-partying ways with a clearer mind.

    "It was my fault, I did it ... [but] it wasn't that bad what I did," Reid, 36, said during her interview on "Access Hollywood" Friday. "At the end of the day, I really [just] had fun. I wasn't doing crimes. I wasn't getting in trouble like that."

    Reid caught her big break when her movie "American Pie" hit theaters in 1999. That same year, she told Rolling Stone, "When I go out to drink, I really drink. I black out sometimes. I don't know how I manage my life when I black out, but I still function and just keep going."

    That kind of statement and the constant stream of paparazzi-captured photos of the bleary-eyed star leaving clubs late night landed her at Promises Treatment Center in December 2008.

    On March 7, Reid showed up at the "American Reunion" premiere looking like a totally glammed-up and gorgeous version of herself -- a look that fans haven't seen much of in the past years.

    Still, the actress insists that she's not totally reformed just yet.

    "I like to have a good time, who doesn't? I just learned to be more discreet," she explained. "Who you keep around and what you do is very important."
