Former Party of Five kid Lacey Chabert doesn't want you to get the wrong idea about her just because she's strutting around in skimpy outfits in next month's Stuff.

"I don't think there's anything wrong with being sexy," the 17-year-old actress tells the men's magazine. "I mean, here I am doing Stuff. There's a difference in doing that and in just being trashy and exploitive with your body. Guys have always told me that it's sexier to leave a little to the imagination."

Chabert insists she's a straight arrow who stays away from Hollywood's wild side. And it sounds like she was really put to the test during the shooting of Tart, an upcoming flick about bad girls at a boarding school co-starring Dominique Swain, Brad Renfro and Bijou Phillips.

"The whole cast was young, and most of them were drunk every night, running around the hotel high on something," she says. "I really hadn't been exposed to that on Party of Five, and I don't hang out with people my age in Hollywood. It kinda made me feel like a complete loser, but I have no interest in that stuff.

"I went to a party a couple of weeks ago, and I had some 40-year-old guy hitting on me, saying gross stuff," Chabert adds. "It just makes me feel sick. I want to go, 'Hello! I'm half your age.' Then, 'Excuse me, your hairpiece is falling off.' "
