Mischa Barton did an interview with Time Out New York, and the troubled starlet insists that she's doing just fine, and the whole psych ward thing was just a "tough spot" in her life. Uh huh!
Mischa lays it out for us:
- Hereâ€™s what happened: Before the show started, I was traveling abroad for contract stuff and I went through a terrible surgery - a wisdom tooth surgery, all four removed. It was a nightmare. Iâ€™ve never had surgery before - it all went wrong and I had to have a second surgery and it almost delayed shooting because it was a nightmare to me, because I couldnâ€™t deal with the thought of not getting there on time. So with the travel, and surgery and prep for the show - it was hell.
Is this when you were checked into Cedars?
- Yeah, I went through a tough spot where everything compounded on me, and it was like a perfect storm, like everything was happening to me at once. The show, travel and then this fairly routine surgery that went wrong - itâ€™s still just healing. But I had to get through it without proper painkillers because I couldnâ€™t take those during work. So itâ€™s been a nightmare.
How did you end up in a psychiatric hospital?
- I was down in the dumps about everything there for a while. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom about things and have to get the most stressed-out just to feel better again. I got completely stressed-out and couldnâ€™t handle everything, and now I feel really in control.
Hmm, does anyone believe her?
Sounds like a whole lot of excuses to us!
