Mischa Barton Opens Up On Pitfalls Of Fame: "I Had A Full-On Breakdown"

Oct 16, 2013 01:20 PM


We applaud her bravery!

Mischa Barton appears on the newest cover of People and opens up about her rise to fame and how Hollywood pressures led to her much publicized stint in the psych ward back in 2009.

    "It was a full-on breakdown. I was under enormous pressure," she confessed to the mag about being placed on an involuntary 5150 hold after she threatened to kill herself.

The former "It" girl took the event as a wakeup call and focused on getting healthy, but even then she was forced to deal with cruel headlines, specifically about her size.

    "It was always, 'She's too skinny, she must be sick.' Then it was, 'She's too big.' I was never the right weight," she explained.

With a new movie, TV pilot, and London boutique occupying her time these days, the OC star is staying focused on the positive.

"I've learned a lot. I'm stronger now," she insisted.

We're happy she's in a better place!

Mischa Barton Looks Happy To Be Back On The Big Screen

After moving to the U.K. for a bit and focusing on her fashion line, Mischa Barton is back to acting and she looks thrilled about it! On Tuesday evening the 27-year-old actress attended the Los Angeles premiere of her new film, I Will Follow You Into the Dark, and she smiled for the cameras on the way in to the screening.

“Living in London was a deliberate choice,” she told the New York Daily News. “It gave me the opportunity to return to theater and thrive in my element. I’ve sought out solid projects, and been lucky enough to find them.” Mischa puts her new flick into that category, and added, "This film is so well-written, it goes into a spiritual, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind kind of space. It’s a love story that takes a dark and interesting turn that challenges your beliefs. It’s the kind of work that gives me a real chance to act.”

“I like acting in indies,” Barton concluded. “I get to see scripts that you don’t find anywhere else. You try to build a varied track record and weed out the junk.”

It's good to have her back!

Mischa, Mischa, Mischa! Where have you been hiding?

On Tuesday night Mischa Barton attended the Los Angeles premiere of A Resurrection, at the ArcLight in Sherman Oaks, and it's been a few months since we've seen the 27-year-old starlet, but she was looking lovely on the red carpet. Mischa has two other movies in the works, so hopefully we'll be seeing more of her this year!

The movie follows a group of popular high schoolers who are hunted (and haunted) by the ghost of a classmate they murdered, and Mischa stars as a counselor at the school. She'll always be Marissa Cooper to us...

Tara Reid was also there, and aside from wanting to pull up her skinny jeans, we think she looked fabulous as well!

If only we could get her back on the small screen! Every time we see her we have serious Marissa Cooper withdrawals...

Mischa Barton attended the launch of designer La Hong Nhut's new boutique in Vienna, Austria on Tuesday, and the 26-year-old actress posed for photos with her beau, British actor Sebastian Knapp.

The two have been dating for nearly four months, and since Misch is currently in Ireland starring in the stage production of Steel Magnolias, we're guessing the two have gotten to spend quite a bit of time together. But maybe she wasn't ready for her close up? The former OC starlet looked like a little confused when we snapped her with both Knapp and the designer!
