Mischa Barton's boyfriend is very supportive of her fashion career.

The 26-year-old actress is currently dating Sebastian Knapp, and she admits he is always keen to show how much he admires her talents.

He said: ''He's great. I was like, 'You don't have to come to the store opening, you don't have to do anything.' But he said, 'No I'm coming to support you.' We met at Ashley Madekwe's wedding. She's an actress I've worked with a lot.''

Mischa, who has previously dated Kooks singer Luke Pritchard and Whitestarr

performer CISCO ADLER, claims she is a serial monogamist but does not date easily.

She added: ''I am a serial monogamist. I don't date easily at all, but if I meet someone I do always seem to end up dating them long-term.''

The former 'O.C.' beauty now lives in Paris, France, having moved from Los Angeles, which she claims can be distracting if you don't know yourself well.

She added: ''I don't like to preach or give advice that much, but you have to know what you want to do. It's very insular, you won't met other people from other things.''
