Mischa Barton FINALLY Opens Up About Her "Full-On Breakdown" During The O.C. Days!

| Filed under: Legal MattersMischa BartonMental HealthAlcoholGIFs


Mischa Barton's all grown up now, but that didn't happen without making plenty of mistakes!

In 2007, the former Marissa Cooper mirrored her troubled O.C. character with a trip to the slammer for a DUI and then proceeded to get thrown under a psych hold in El Lay two years later, but how does a young starlet who has it all suddenly go off the deep end?!

The I Will Follow You Into The Dark star revealed:

“We thought, ‘Work hard, play hard‘ … I was under enormous pressure. It was always, ‘She’s too skinny, she must be sick.’ Then it was, ‘She’s too big.’ I was never the right weight.”


Time and time again we've seen just how hard fame can be on the young and beautiful, but we're SO happy Mischa has pulled herself together to act again and run a successful boutique in London.

Mischa continued:

“I’ve learned a lot — I’m stronger now”

Like they say: "What doesn't kill you…"

If only her profound message could reach today's troubled stars before it's too late!

You go gurl!

    Yes, it was a sad story and I'm glad she's doing better now. Do you read People and just copy everything on to here?

  2. 2

    Perez, did you ever apologize to her for your relentless mean comments about her body and sobriety? Remember all those arrows you used to draw pointing to cellulite? Time to make amends.

  3. 3

    you probably had a lot to do with it!! didnt you used to call her Mushy??? get off your high horse

  4. 4

    I'm generally not one to agree with the rude or harsh comments on your blog, but you did call her "Mushy" for years… You should apologize or this post makes you a hypocrite.

    YEAH, and im POSITIVE you were one of the main people who would constantly make fun of her. YOU are the one that always judged her weight. I laugh how you try to pull this nice guy stint but you can't fool me… you're still a dick. But with better grammar.

    Yes, and what is with that "FINALLY" in the title. Mischa Barton, and celebrities in general, don't owe us explanations. I am glad that she was able to open up, but she did it in her own time and shaming her about that is just as cruel as you used to be to her.

    Perez, how quaint, considering how awful you were to her (fat-shaming, "Mushy Fartone") - etc. WOW. Hypocrite.
