Take note, Zac Efron: there's hope for you yet.

In an upcoming memoir - "Melissa Explains It All," due out October 29 - former child star Melissa Joan Hart opens up about a past filled with steamy affairs and drug-fueled parties.

“I experimented with weed, Ecstasy, mushrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half,” Hart tells Life & Style of what readers can expect from the book, adding that she once posted for a 1999 Maxim photo shoot while high.

Hart says she ran with a "bad crowd" for awhile, but tried to draw the line when she could.

The actress claims she once turned down an offer of cocaine from Paris Hilton, though a rep for that Z-lister denies the allegation.

“I just didn’t enjoy taking drugs," she says. "I don’t like the loss of control.”

Among other tidbits: Hart enjoyed make out sessions with "man whore" Jerry O’Connell and Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter.

She also isn't a fan of Ashton Kutcher, saying she the actor made some "smartass remarks" back in the day and the two "just didn't get along."
