Tara Reid might be best known for her wild past, which included heavy partying and red carpet wardrobe malfunctions – but the 36-year-old star says her life has changed.

The “American Reunion” star stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Thursday, where she revealed to Billy Bush and Kit Hoover what she’s learned over the years about having fun and staying in control.

“It’s really important how you keep things private,” she said when asked about her at-times very public past.

“You wanna try to have a good time and try to keep it at home… especially today with the paparazzi, try to control it as much as you can,” she continued.

The actress takes ownership of her public snafus, but also points out that she never got arrested or harmed anyone in the process.

“It was my fault, I did it… [but,] it wasn’t that bad what I did,” she explained. “At the end of the day, I really [just] had fun. I wasn’t doing crimes. I wasn’t getting in trouble like that.”

Tara admitted that she still enjoys a night out, but keeps it in check.

“I like to have a good time, who doesn’t? I just learned to be more discrete,” she explained. “Who you keep around and what you do is very important.”

When asked about her past cosmetic surgery complications, Tara said all of that is behind her, telling Billy and Kit, “It’s good, I’m good, life goes on.”

In addition to “American Reunion,” opening in theaters on April 6, Tara has her eyes set on the small screen

”[I] might being doing a television show,” she said, explaining that the details are still being worked out.
