Did Mischa Barton beguile or bore James Blunt during a recent tête-à-tête in the Hamptons? According to the New York Daily News, the statuesque starlet, 21, made a beeline for the "You're Beautiful" warbler, 33, at a James Taylor concert, leaning down to wrap her arms around him and exclaiming, "There he is!" The two gabbed and noshed, but as Barton yammered away, "Blunt became less and less enthused," according to the paper. The inexplicably seductive singer, who was once briefly linked to Lindsay Lohan, eventually moseyed over to chat with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen before returning to Mischa, whom he later accompanied to local club. But the actress ended up making an early exit, leaving Blunt to get his flirt on into the wee hours with "with blondes and brunettes alike."
Us Weekly, however, has a slightly different take on the evening. A source tells the mag that Blunt was "constantly hovering" around Barton, with another piping in, "He's obsessed with her and has been trying to get with her for a while." But he apparently doesn't measure up to the actress' oh-so-high boyfriend standards (her previous beaus include Cisco "Dangly Drawered" Adler and oily oil heir Brandon Davis). An insider tells the mag she "just wants to be friends."
