Mischa said she was missing the south of France 

The star said that "general bullying from some of the men on set" had a big impact on her decision to leave. 

"I've always felt ashamed in a way to really talk about what went on behind the scenes because I've always been a very private person and very aware of people's feelings," she said.

Mischa found fame on The O.C.

Mischa admitted that the situation was complicated but said that ultimately, "evening out everybody's pay—and sort of general bullying from some of the men on set that kind of felt really [expletive]."

Mischa said that if she were asked to do it all over again she would "probably not".

"It's tough. It's really tough when you are young in this business,' she said. "People blow a lot of hot air at you. That’s the main thing. Keep your head on your shoulders - even when you think your head is on your shoulders, sometimes it isn't!"
