Mischa Barton is one hot mess. After spending the last few months club-hopping in London and L.A. and living a post-breakup life from indie rock star Luke Pritchard of The Kooks, it seems that all the partying has finally caught up with the 23-year-old actress. On Wednesday, she called police about a yet-to-be-identified health problem and was taken to the hospital. She has still not been released from Ceders-Sinai Medical Center. Which is pretty darn inconvenient because Mischa was expected to be in New York City last night to attend the premiere of her latest movie, “Homecoming.” Sadly, she was unable to make it.
All this comes just weeks after tabloids jumped on her case for looking uncharacteristically, well, “bloated.” She says her face was swollen from having her wisdom teeth removed, but who knows. And this is the latest in a series of troubles Barton has faced—two years ago, she was hospitalized for falling ill during a friends Memorial Day party. Seven moths later, Barton was arrested for DUI. [People]
I am now fully convinced that once Barton realized that leaving “The O.C.” was the worst career move ever, she decided to revive her deceased character Marisa Cooper in real life, instead.
