Mischa Barton and Other Actors Who Have Starred in Music Videos

Yahoo Contributor Network

Mischa Barton is probably best known for starring in "The OC," but she took a step in a different direction recently, to appear in Noel Gallagher's new music video! The 26-year-old donned a leopard print bra and enormous granny panties for her latest role, but somehow, she made the look work for her! Barton isn't the only actress who has taken a walk on the wild side by appearing in a music video. Here are four other stars best known for acting, who have done the same thing!

Kirsten Dunst

Before she became super famous in the "Spiderman" movies, Kirsten Dunst was better known for films such as "Bring It On" and "Drop Dead Gorgeous." It was around that time, the year 2000 to be precise, that Dunst starred in the video for Savage Garden's hit, "I Knew I Loved You." She played the perfect girl who Darren Hayes knew he loved, and her radiant smile really lit up the screen.

Ashley Benson

"Pretty Little Liars" actress Ashley Benson is a hot property right now, and even musicians know it! The soon-to-be star of "Spring Breakers" recently showed more of her talent as the neurotic ex-girlfriend in Hot Chelle Rae's video for "Honestly." Ash Benzo is one of the most skilled actresses to be discovered in recent years, and it was fun to see her doing something a little different. Her video character was certainly different from her rather insecure alter-ego, Hanna Marin!

Taylor Kinney

"Vampire Diaries" actor Taylor Kinney took a break from Mystic Falls last year, to play Lady Gaga's love interest in her utterly bizarre video for "You and I." The pair cavorted on camera, but as it turned out, that wasn't quite enough for either of them! Kinney and Mother Monster quickly struck up a relationship, and have been dating ever since.

Courteney Cox

Courteney Cox was clearly always destined to be famous! Way back in 1984, before she became the obsessive Monica Gellar in "Friends," Cox made a very memorable appearance in Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing In The Dark" video. She was the girl who was pulled out of the crowd and onto the stage by the man himself. If you ignore the terrible dancing, the video is still pretty cool, even 28 years later!
