Sophia Bush elaborates on her decision to keep the details of her personal life private. Despite having grown up in the spotlight, the One Tree Hill actress prefers to keep things to herself these days.

In a chat with Entertainment Tonight, the actress revealed the reason behind this change, “It’s hard to have nothing that’s yours. And when you are a person who lives in the public eye, everybody wants to pick over everything and that can be really tricky.”

She added, “And, I also grew up in the early aughts when girls were raked over the coals for any choices that they made. And I just was like, ‘I don’t think I like this.’ I didn’t like having my private life lied about. There were times where someone would send through an article and be like, ‘Well, supposedly you’re dating this guy.’ And I was like, ‘I mean, I would. Who is he?’ Like, what is going on here?”

“I don’t know, just eventually it bothered me, that rather than doing what we’ve done, talking about work, substance, education, interview shows, what we believe in, what’s going on with women’s rights. It would be, ‘What are you wearing? And how’s your boyfriend?,’ and it’s like, ‘What does that have to do with anything about my work, my life?'” she continued. “I really think the kind of gamification of people’s private intimacy is just creepy to me. So I don’t really hide what’s going on in my life, but I don’t flaunt it.”
