Oh Mischa Barton you tell good stories. I just wish you were as good of an actress. Mischa sat down or stood up or did something with Time Out New York and they decided to print it. I am pretty sure the reporter is probably still laughing. Not about what Mischa went through, but her explanation for it.
“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.” And by everything she must mean getting a job as an actress on a network at about $40K an episode. Oh, and of course the flying back and forth between London and the US for some modeling gigs that paid her as well. I'm not seeing the storm yet, but I am sure there is more.
Yes, here it is. She had “a terrible wisdom tooth surgery which went wrong and is still just healing.” Well, sure, I think that is why the psychiatric hospitals across the world are filled with patients who just had a wisdom tooth pulled out. Makes perfect sense to me. But wait. There's more.
“I had to get through it without proper painkillers because I couldn't take those during work. So it's been a nightmare.”
Oh, she was on set while they did the surgery? I'm confused. She said earlier it happened before the job started or was this while she was modeling? No pain killers huh?
“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 couldn’t handle everything, and now I feel really in control.”
This actually ticks me off because instead of admitting her problem and maybe helping others who are having issues in their own life, she is basically saying she can't handle the stress of making a million dollars a year and working a little bit. WTF?
“The funny thing is, if all this happened in New York, no one would care. New York lets you be who you are, and people aren't as judgmental. I'm so glad to be back here.”
Oh sure. It is because it was in LA. No one would have even noticed if this had happened in New York. She cracks me up.
