You know I'm not a big shut up kind of person. I'm more of a be quiet kind of person. I think I read somewhere that shut up was one of the rudest things you can say to someone, and that be quiet is much more appropriate and less damaging to the psyche. Who knew I could be so sensitive? Not me. Anyway, the shut up is directed at all celebrities, but falls on Mischa because she is just the latest who complains and complains while at the same time desperate for the attention of the paps.
The only reason I talk about Mischa Barton is because she manages to get her photos out there to be seen. She has no acting career or modeling career at this point and she is living off past O.C. fumes. Nothing wrong with that. I think an actor should live off those fumes for as long as they can.
So, if Mischa stayed home every night, pretty soon people would forget her because she is not doing anything memorable work wise. Although I'm using Mischa as an example, you can just fill in the blank on any other number of actors and actresses who once touched fame. Go back to someone I had in Random Photos the other day. Estella Warren. You know she makes two or three times as much as Mischa when she acts or models, but you rarely see her and probably forgot her name already.
So, when Mischa gets ticked off at a pap for taking topless photos of her AFTER he warned her that she was in a public area, then I have a problem. The Australian pap has it on tape warning Mischa that he had not taken photos of her, but if she were planning to sunbathe where she was located, that it was very public and that he would be taking her photo. He even suggested more private areas.
So, what does she do? Sunbathes topless and when the photos show off the fact that photoshopping is how she makes her living, she gets ticked off at the paps for invading her personal life. Of course if they had come out spectacular she would have been grinning from ear to ear; happy and secure that people were taking notice of her for the next week or two until she could think of another stunt or boyfriend or arrest or church visit to keep her in the public eye just until she gets that next big break while at the same time trashing in public the last big break she got as the worst television show ever.
