Mischa Barton is glad that we don’t care about her anymore, which is good I guess if that’s what makes her happy and somewhat freeing considering she looked like a bit of a jolly ole mess leaving Sayers club in LA a few nights ago. But if I owed $90k, I might be a little messy, too.
I don’t know who that hanger-on (literally) friend of hers is but goddamn is she annoying.
Ms. Barton looked okay earlier in the evening (outfit aside). Before she went clubbing she was a guest at the Fire & Ice Gala By Candy Ice Jewelry, whatever the hell that is.
Check it out. Thanks to Mischa-B.com for the photos.

Poor Mischa Barton – she’s definitely had her share of shitty press over the years, but what famous person hasn’t? Thrust into the spotlight due to her role in The OC, the actress experienced the highs and lows of Hollywood and often found herself hounded by paparazzi, criticized for her fluctuating weight and mental state and… well, basically things that every celebrity goes through. These days, no one really gives a shit about Mischa Barton, but instead of scrambling to get back in the news, she’s actually pretty happy about being left alone, finally.
From The Daily Beast:
Barton says she doesn’t miss the spotlight at all. “I’m so relieved it’s not how it was,” she says. “It’s not the person. It was the time. Everything was an ‘it’ girl this or “it” girl that. It was just over the top.”
“I just think there’s a negative side—obviously, that’s an understatement—to having all that attention,” Barton says. “Because it’s not friendly. It’s invasive. I find in order to get your job done, actors need a certain amount of anonymity. You’re being blown up to that extent, and everybody is following every little piece of your life. ‘Oh, she went to Starbucks to get a Frappuccino with a caramel.’ Then they follow you to the gas station. It’s impossible to concentrate on the work. When you just want to go on vacation and you hear a twig snap and there’s a guy in a tree, it’s not relaxing. You can’t be a real person. So I’m happy things have changed.”
Yeah, the paparazzi sucks and shit, but I feel like the millions of dollars you make, all the free shit you get and the lifestyle you get to lead as a celebrity kind of offsets that a bit. I’m torn because I think if you’re lucky enough to have made it in the industry – regardless of whether you’re just in it for “the craft” of acting or not – you should be counting your lucky stars and probably need to just shut up and deal with the less pleasant aspects. On the other hand, no one deserves to be harassed or put in danger because some bro wants to sell a picture to US Weekly for $10k. Either way, good for Mischa for… I dunno, being Mischa.

Mischa was ordered to pay Doctors’ Choice Nursing $95,000 back in 2011 for unspecified services rendered in 2009. Mischa failed to show up to court after the suit was filed, which is why a default judgment was entered against her.
The nature of the services has been a mystery for years … until this week in court, when the owner of DCN explained that the nurses were hired to keep Mischa sober. The owner did not specify which substance Mischa was allegedly abusing.
Mischa’s lawyer was in court Thursday fighting the default judgment — and grilled the owner of DCN about why she hadn’t notified Mischa of the mounting bill if the actress was the one responsible for paying it.
The owner replied that she didn’t want the stress of the mounting bill to exacerbate Mischa’s sobriety problems. The owner said it was the nurses’ job to keep Mischa sober before an important acting gig in fall 2009 … the same year she starred in the CW show, “The Beautiful Life.”
Mischa’s lawyer contends it was the actress’ mother who hired the nurses and therefore ran up the bills — so Mischa shouldn’t have to pay. The judge has yet to rule.
Wow, and I thought my credit card bill was insurmountable. I’ve hung around her a few times and she’s a sweet girl. Seriously dazed most of the time, but sweet. I have no idea which substance she was abusing. I can make a guess just like anyone else.
Damn, no wonder we haven’t heard from her lately (aside from popping up on that stupid list). I checked out her IMDB profile out of curiosity to get an idea of what kind of work she’s getting. She’s done some small projects that didn’t get widely released, and a music video, but she has something coming out called Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain with Martin Sheen, so there’s that?

Sure, Kristen Stewart‘s face constantly looks like she just smelled an old shitty diaper, but I don’t think she’s an unattractive girl at all. However, British men don’t agree with me, as a recent poll run by the website MenKind put her at the top of a list of the least sexy actresses in Hollywood.
The full Top 10 list is as follows:
Alright, you got me on the rest, there – none of them are remotely attractive to me (but as I said earlier this morning – different strokes, different folks). I just would have thought men might like Kristen’s “leave me alone” lip snarl she constantly seems to be doing. Shows what I know about what men like (thank God).
A spokesperson for the MenKind (via MTV News) explained the results of the poll as follows:
“Our Oscars poll has been a fascinating insight into the minds of British men – it’s shown that sexiness is far more than appearance.
“They were turned off by volatile and moody actresses as well as ice queens. And they don’t want to see unhealthily skinny starlets on the big screen.”
Word – it’s nice to see a move away from unhealthily skinny figures and a celebration of something “far more than appearance”, like, I don’t know, actual substance, intelligence, sense of humour or whatever else. It’s just a shame those didn’t matter more before.

Well, well, look who’s turned up! It’s Mischa Barton, guys! The last time we saw Mischa, she didn’t look so swell. Before that, there was a long and odd descent into obscurity via high-cut pants and home bleached hair, because really, Mischa Barton is the celebrity proto-hipster.
But she looks good here, no? Healthy-like. I’m actually quite fond of her, although I am not entirely sure why exactly. How do you guys feel about Mischa Barton? And most importantly, what’s with the nonchalant pose-striking at gas stations? I have the feeling that homegirl missed the limelight even more than we missed her, but I am also glad that she didn’t die from self-inflicted lung disease.

Is it a terribly rude thing to say that someone looks like complete f-cking shit? Because OH MY GOD does Mischa Barton look like complete f-cking shit. What the hell happened here? Is this a result of really bad dental hygiene? Because Lindsay had the same problem and you know what she’s looking like these days, Lord.
Let’s break it down, though, shall we? Do I think that Meesh here got some facial surgery? Well, in a word, no. In four words, “yes definitely,” and “maxillofacial surgeon.” Do you know what maxillofacial surgery is? Here it is, defined:
… Maxillofacial surgery is surgery to correct a wide spectrum of diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.
Because I definitely think that’s the thing that’s happening here. Mischa has some kind of diseased, deformed head that needed some serious attention, and that’s why she looks like a blossoming meth head riding the meth express on her way to meth heaven.
Honestly, it was only a matter of time before her molars did her in. Don’t any of you remember this photo?:
Because I do. Oh yes, I do.
In related Mischa news, can you believe that Noel Gallagher (of Oasis fame) cast girlfriend in a music video? Because he did:
The ex-Oasis guitarist filmed the promo with the actress in Los Angeles at the end of last month and he believes it is one of the best videos he has made during his career.
Writing on his Tales From The Middle of Nowhere blog, he revealed: ”I had a shoot for my new single. That’ll be the 5th off this album which is unprecedented in all my time making records. This album is fast becoming my ‘Thriller’!!
”I played the part of a slightly hungover grumpy northern taxi driver which is just as well as that’s exactly what I felt like. I feel it’s some of my best work and most definitely worthy of at least one Bafta. That actress Mischa Barton was in it too. Nice girl. (Manchester) City fan would you believe!?!? (sic)”
Mischa, 26, spent most of the shoot running around in leopard-print underwear but the former “O.C.” star didn’t mind because she was so thrilled to be working with the ‘Dream On’ singer and his band the High Flying Birds.
She tweeted at the time: ”Doing Noel Gallagher’s video. Was so excited I barely slept and he didn’t disappoint!”
Well. I’d say “that explains her face,” but that wouldn’t make sense, now, would it? Then again, not many things need to make sense when you’re as methified as Mischa Barton apparently is.
