Growing up as an only child Lisa Goldstein said she was sometimes bullied for being unique and what elementary-aged kids considered ‘different’. But as the One Tree Hill actress recently shared with Team True Beauty, she wouldn’t ever change being herself because it’s all about being ‘Loud and Proud’ of who you are and not keeping yourself in a box to please others. During our interview Goldstein strongly emphasized on the importance of everyone embracing their differences and taking what makes them unique and doing something great with it!
Goldstein also shares an important lesson on how we can all pull out positives from our insecurities and discusses what she believes true beauty really means. Those kids in school may have teased her for being ‘different’, but speaking to Goldstein you quickly see it’s what made her different that makes her special and gives her that true beauty. I’m so proud to have Lisa Goldstein be a part of Team True Beauty, to share her valuable messages and to say that we should all take her wise advice and be loud and proud of who we are!

1 Were you named after anyone?
My first name starts with the letter L in honor of my Mom’s Uncle Louis. I never met him, but she and her cousins still rave about how amazing he was.
2 Do you like your own handwriting?
When I’m taking my time, yes. When I’m rushing (which is usually the case) absolutely not!
3 What would your superpower be if you could choose one?
I would definitely choose to pause time. When I get in confrontational or stressful situations it takes me a little while to figure out how I feel about whatever is going on. I can be kind of frustrating. After the fact, I’m always finding myself saying “I should have said THAT!”. I’d be a great person to have around after an emergency. : )
4 Are you an Optimist or Pessimist?
Optimist to a fault. I always see the good in people before I see the bad.
5 What do you collect?
Nothing. I hate clutter.

This news is so NOT cool — we hope the bag is returned very soon!
While we’re so excited to hear that One Tree Hill is returning for another season, the news of a missing Rebecca Minkoff bag on set left us everything but pleased! Stylish star Sophia Bush tweeted out the theft.
Sophia is obviously annoyed, and we don’t blame her! Not only did it mess up the shot, but it’s also so upsetting especially when the friendly cast is always so open with their local fans. We hope the bag turns up soon — crimes of fashion are NOT okay!

In just two seasons, Lisa Goldstein went from new girl on the block to a full-fledged member of One Tree Hill. Now, as she embarks on her third season, Goldstein discusses adjusting to fame, what she has in common with the quirky yet lovable Millicent Huxtable and why she’s in agreement with co-star Lee Norris.
TeenDramaWhore: Pre-One Tree Hill, you primarily appeared in musicals. What made you switch to TV?
Lisa Goldstein: I never really decided to “make the switch.” I have a degree in musical theatre and that is the genre I kept getting cast in. I freelanced with television and film agents when I lived in both New York and Orlando. I was constantly auditioning for TV and film while performing in professional theatre. My agent in Orlando called and told me there was an audition for One Tree Hill, and told me I could either audition for the receptionist or the quirky fashion assistant, “Millicent”. I jumped at the chance to audition for the “quirky assistant”, I thought it would be fun. I put myself on tape and a week later heard that I had booked the role. I had my friend Nicole listen to the voicemail my agent left because I didn’t believe it. It seemed too easy!!
TDW: What are some of the biggest differences between working in theater and working on a weekly television show?
Goldstein: There are so many!! But, two of the biggest are rehearsal time and the size of your performance. I was used to having weeks of rehearsal, and on a TV set you have about five minutes. It was quite a shock to not be able to rehearse the scenes over and over before performing them. Also, in front of an audience you have to project your voice and performance to the back of the theatre, but in front of a camera everything is so much more subtle. I’d look like a total idiot if I performed in front of a camera the way I do in front of an audience. Being too big in front of the camera is actually a big fear of mine. A lot of directors come on set and tell me to be bigger and to do more.

After being MIA for a few episodes, everyone’s favorite quirky assistant, Millicent Huxtable, made a much-anticipated return to One Tree Hill two weeks ago to help out friend in need — but where was beau Mouth (Lee Norris)? Real-life alter ego Lisa Goldstein gave TVGuide.com the lowdown on the a-dork-able twosome’s possibly “rocky” future, a surprising visit from a blast from the past and if there’s anything cooking in “the oven.”
TVGuide.com: But Millicent’s back in Tree Hill helping Brooke (Sophia Bush) now that Victoria (Daphne Zuniga) has Clothes Over Bros. What’s this new project they’re working on?
Lisa Goldstein: Yeah, I come back to Tree Hill and I assume Brooke doesn’t have the company anymore, so I ask her if she wants to start a brand new company. That hasn’t really happened yet in the scripts that I’ve read, but there’s definitely been some alluding to that. I’m excited about that too. It should be a fun storyline.
TVGuide.com: You’re not the only one back — word on the street is, so is Gigi, Mouth’s ex.
Goldstein: That is correct. She comes back in episode six. She’s working with Mouth and she’s kind of trying to get in on that, but I don’t know if she will or not. We’ll see. I don’t even know it right now! That’s exactly what we’re shooting right now, so I don’t know exactly what happens with it. We’re on — oh I lost count — the tenth episode.
TVGuide.com: How will Millicient handle Gigi?
Goldstein: Millie, as good as she is at her job, and as smart as she is, she gets really frazzled when she’s under stressful situations, so I don’t know how she’ll handle it. But I think in the end, she’ll get a little more grown-up about it and deal with her job in confronting her and telling her to get lost! Go away! [Laughs]
TVGuide.com: You came back at the end of the last episode by yourself, which begs the question: Where is Mouth? Is he still in Omaha?
Goldstein: Millicent came back, and I don’t know about Mouth yet. You’ll have to watch and see if he comes back or not, what’s going on with that. I don’t know!
TVGuide.com: Well if they split, that’ll break a lot of fans’ hearts. It seems like everyone is cheering for you guys.
Goldstein: Yeah, of course they have their problems and issues that they have to deal with, but they’re so in love with each other that it doesn’t matter. I mean Millicent moved to Omaha for Mouth. It’s just so fresh and new and innocent and sweet. I think that’s what the fans like. I guess we’re the role models for the relationship they actually want because it’s so perfect.
TVGuide.com: They’ve been immune to a lot of the drama so far. Are things going to get tough or will that innocence be preserved?
Goldstein: I don’t know. Even now, it looks like there might be some rocky terrain ahead, but I haven’t even read past the tenth episode, and that’s what we’re shooting right now. I don’t know if it’ll get as dramatic as a murder in a cornfield or anything like that. [Laughs] But I think they’re kind of like the calm storyline in the show. They’re kind of like an anchor, with all this other stuff going on, it’s much more refreshing to have a few scenes in between that are down-to-earth and normal and whatever. It’s the love relief.
TVGuide.com: There’s a lot of speculation going on that Millie’s pregnant.
Goldstein: Oh, that is false! I heard all about that! It was just the dress that made me look like I had a bun in the oven, but I don’t. It’s so funny because I was like, “Oh my God, I look terrible in that dress!”… It’s so funny how people jump on that so fast. I would prefer not be waist-thin and to starve myself after hearing a comment like that. I saw the comments and was like, “Oh, whatever, I’m moving on.”
TVGuide.com: You’re a regular this season. Congrats! Are you feeling part of the crew now?
Goldstein: Thank you! I definitely feel so much more comfortable and I’m having so much more fun on set. Because I feel so part of the family, I feel I can go in and have a good time instead of going in and being like, “Oh my God, I hope they ask me back for the next episode! What am I going to do?” It’s so nice that I’m here for the year so I can play around for a bit.

The buzz around the current season of One Tree Hill – five-year flash-forward notwithstanding – may have been about Kevin Federline’s much-anticipated guest appearances, but there’s one person who’s causing more talk than K-Fed himself – Lisa Goldstein.
That’s Millicent to you, Brooke’s (Sophia Bush) assistant who’s slowly winning over fans alike with her gentle, quirky, awkward ways and is one-half of the show’s newest “it” couple with the unlucky-in-love Mouth (Lee Norris).
“I think their relationship’s adorable and their characters are so innocent so I think it’s a good match,” Lisa tells OK! of her on-screen romance. “She kind of brings him back to the moral guy he was before he started sleeping with his boss.”
And the relationship is only going to get more serious – the two have already moved in together on the show and – spoiler alert! – will be one of the few couples spared drama come the season finale, Lisa teases.
“Mouth and Millicent are still together and they’re taking steps to further their relationship as the season goes on,” she says. “Everybody else is up in the air. Nobody knows what’s going to happen with Peyton and Lucas or Brooke and Lucas or Lindsey and Lucas nobody knows.”
What Lisa does know though is that she definitely will be returning for the CW drama’s sixth season next year, an unexpected development for her as Millicent was only planned for the season premiere. Charmed by early cuts of Lisa, the powers that be requested her role to be more than a one-time thing on One Tree Hill.
“They asked the writers if they wanted to start writing for me and they did,” she says. “And they did and I just kept coming back more and more first as a co-star and now I feel I’m at the top of the show.”
And why not? One Tree Hill is the actress’ first foray into television. A lifelong theater vet, Lisa, who spent the last few years performing stage productions of Disney films in Florida, landed the part of Millicent with relative ease.
“[My agent] called me and said I could either audition for the receptionist or the dorky assistant and I was like, ‘I’ll do the dorky assistant. It will be way more fun,’” she recounts. “We put the audition on tape and sent it up to Wilmington, N.C. and about a week later I totally forgot about and my agent called and said that I booked it. I was shocked!”
It was a different emotion when she first showed up on the set, walking into an already established series with a tight-knit cast.
“I didn’t know what to expect. I never been on a TV set before, but everyone was so nice and the nervousness kind of worked with the character I was doing that day so it was actually perfect,” Lisa says. “But everyone was so welcoming now I feel apart of the cast.”
Nowadays, Lisa is definitely feeling “part of the cast,” and just like their characters, she and Sophia have become BFFs off-screen as well.
“Sofia and I are actually going to get pedicures today. She’s a great person with a great heart and I’m lucky to have met her.”
One person she didn’t meet on set though? K-Fed. The aspiring rapper/actor had a three-episode arc on the show, but he and Lisa never crossed paths. However, he certainly exceeded everyone’s expectations.
“From what everybody says they were all really impressed with him he came everyday on time and prepared,” she says. “Hilarie Burton was like, ‘He would know on my trailer door and run lines with me.’ He really wanted to do a good job. We were pleasantly surprised.”
