Tara Reid defends wild partying days

Washington: Tara Reid has said that her partying past “wasn’t that bad” and that she just had fun. The 36-year-old actress insists that despite her habits, she wasn’t getting into trouble.

“It was my fault, I did it ... [but] it wasn’t that bad what I did,” a magazine has quoted her as saying.

“At the end of the day, I really [just] had fun. I wasn’t doing crimes. I wasn’t getting in trouble like that,” she said.

Reid caught her big break when her movie ‘American Pie’ hit theatres 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 Centre 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. Who you keep around and what you do is very important,” she added.
