According to People, Mischa has been tapped to star in "A Beautiful Life," as an experienced model named Sonia. "Ashton developed it about his life growing up as a model from Iowa, so it's about the whole fashion world that he was in," Mischa told the mag Thursday night at a GQ magazine-hosted party celebrating the new men's fragrance Burberry the Beat.
"And obviously I have a lot of friends in the fashion world," she continued. "So I'm used to being around a lot of people in that."
As for her role she'll play on the new Ashton produced show? "[I play] a bitchy model-type character, like it's a totally different character for me," she said.
Mischa will reportedly begin shooting "A Beautiful Life" at the end of the month.
