Actress Selma Blair has dramatically settled down since her hard-charging youth.
"I'm not much of a party girl now -- vanity's won out, because otherwise I'd look like Marlon Brando -- but in high school and even in middle school, I was in love with partying," Blair said.
"It was definitely a hand-me-a-glass-of-oblivion type of thing," the Detroit native said in the January issue of Details magazine, on newsstands Tuesday.
The 27-year-old star of "Cruel Intentions" currently appears on the WB network's "Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane," which will be retooled next season and called simply "Zoe," after Blair's character. She next stars in the romantic comedy "Down to You" opposite Freddie Prinze Jr.
"I'm too dramatic for my own good," Blair said. "I always wanted to be the girl living in the beautiful white house where the boy picks her up and the dad is in the study drinking cognac, saying 'Sit down, son' but hey, the first problem is there was no dad around. So yeah, I've always been a free-spirit in a pretty rocky boat."
