Mischa Barton Admits She's "Always Flirted With Depression"

| Filed under: Mischa BartonMental HealthGIFs



No question Mischa Barton has had a troubled past, but she's finally confessing the reason for her reckless behavior!

The former O.C. starlet — who was arrested for a DUI and weed possession in 2007 and was held on a 5150 psychiatric hold in 2009 — is ready to spill on her struggle with depression.

The actress said:

"I've always flirted with depression and can be a dark character. Being an actor seems glamorous but it means going from working all day and feeling wanted, to having nothing going on for weeks and having no one to take care of you. So it's important to have plans when there's a change in schedule. I'm not a fan of anti- depressants but talking therapy has been very helpful, as has having people around who understand me and, importantly, make me laugh."

Well, we're glad to know she's treating it! Depression is a SERIOUS health condition, especially with the added pressure of fame!

Obviously the therapy is helping if she's stayed out of trouble for this long.

Keep on that path to mental health, gurl! It looks good on you!
