Hollywood star Tara Reid hates being branded a wild child at 29-years-old and insists she is a homely type.

The American Pie beauty, whose drunken antics and various wardrobe malfunctions have earned her a bad girl reputation, insists she is just trying to be upbeat and cheerful.

She says, "I'm just like, 'Shut up!' I'm no different then anybody else.

"I have a good time with people and I make people happy.

"It's really sad that people say that and judge you for being happy, and other people are doing bad things and it's almost promoted."
