Mischa Barton Lives in the Armpit of America

Mischa Barton Lives in the Armpit of America

Mischa Barton grabs lunch with friends at art-world hangout restaurant Sant Ambroeus in NYC’s West Village on Tuesday.

On her table was a copy of Mark Mathabane‘s “Kaffir Boy: An Autobiography –The True Story of a Black Youth’s Coming of Age in Apartheid South Africa”. The book brings to light how the young black children dealt with racism and stereotypes.

Mischa, 21, is in town filming Assassination of a High School President with Bruce Willis in New Jersey. The former O.C. star currently lives in Hoboken, New Jersey.

“Every time I’ve come recently I’ve stayed in a hotel, which just feels lame,” said Mischa, who grew up in a NYC apartment. “I’ve been hanging at friends’ flats in the city, and it made me want to get a place of my own.”

She added, “I think I need to be back here. I’m in my twenties now, and it would be nice to finally have my own place in the city. I like the East Village, Greenwich Village, and the meatpacking. I’m sort of a downtown girl.”

    I think it’s really cool when people sit at tables!

  • Aussiegal

    I really like Mischa, she seems really down to earth. She has just enough publicity but not too much.

  • kelana

    the man in pink has a cute bum.

  • Dirty Cougar

    Mischa looks good with her hair that color brown too. She looks more earthy.

  • ohmy

    New hair? I like it. Clothes are ‘eh’ as usual.

    I still don’t get the armpit joke.

  • Dirty Cougar

    Yes! That man in the pink shirt has a marvelous looking pooper!

  • Just Jared

    I love how everyone on here calls them poopers.

  • Angelina

    She’s looks quite nice…very down to earth. I also like her new hair. Congrats to Mischa for landing in a movie role along with Bruce Willis!

  • Virginia

    I have no idea why anyone still cares about her. She looks awful, CANNOT ACT and her career has already peaked and is dead. A movie with Bruce Willis and a movie about the Russian lesbian group t.a.t.u? All this just screams straight to DVD.

    How I missed this OC normal looking chick when her other midget co-star have been romping out and about for almost every 3 days in this blog!

  • Dirty Cougar

    @ We’ll the so called OC midget is cute! I think Jared likes Rachel Bilson no?

  • Yily

    Yeah! Move back to New Jersey, Mischa. LA doesn’t want you and Hollywood ain’t calling. You’re just an average girl with no real talent. The only thing you got going is your look and that’s not going to last long. Hmm..maybe..Rachel Bilson can move in with you too. That midget is lonely is LA with no job and nothing to do but hiring photographers around to take her pictures. It’s sad.

  • June

    Agree to the MAX, Yily…

    All those OC chicks are all just “wannabees” and will just be (infamously (famous) on these kinds of blogs & tabs dues to their well-influenced PR agents but so not in a legitimate Holllywood fame…

  • Mags

    All those related to that OC show are all just “flash in the pan”… just full of style but no substance at all. That’s why almost all the careers of its cast are hanging in the air, if not jobless and just doing anything & everything by media-hyping these days…

  • Jaye

    Dunno what’s the big deal w/ these OC chicks that when you looked at them standing beside each other, they looked like closely like a lamp post & a garbage can. Dunno too whose fault it is if its Barton’s being too tall or Bilson just being a gnome. Just freaky!

  • Violet

    She’s sweet!

  • tzy

    when did she become a hippy???:S:S lol

  • Schu

    @ Jaye :

    Hey being w/ normal features, I prefer to be tall anytime of the day than being a gnome lol!

    Actually I prefer the tandem of Sophia Bush & Hilarie Burton of One Tree Hill over those OC overrated wannabees. To think that those OTH chicks looks soo much better & acts better too… Isnt it that One Tree Hill is still running compared to OC whose been axed due to poor ratings?! But those OC chicks wouldn’t go away… JUST YET. A big thanks to their well paid PR agents & publicist for that matter. Way too obvious to tell…

  • Monch

    Don’t you like Mischa now when she seems be looking low-profiled these day… And cant you see too that at least she’s “working”… i.e. like shooting on some films and at the same time doing some side by side “real” photoshoots either on a magazines or in runways and “so not” in just any shopping malls, an open dining area or even in a beauty salon… Jeeez, who could that be?!

  • Iris

    #6 LOL. I totally agree.

    She looks healthy and happy. What is it with celebs and the chipped nail polish look though? Does anyone else think its a little grose? I really can’t undestand why this is fashionable and who started it anyway?

  • [~Famous~]


    Still calling the paps I see – Pathetic.

  • Mmmmm

    Iris, I agree just looks white trash

  • Lauren DeRaffele

    Excuse me, guess you have never been to Hoboken where property taxes are more than in any county in all of California, the reason because Hoboken is the most picturesque brown stone city of the late era that has maintained its beauty, charm, and draw for those who want city life but maybe not the smell, pollution, or price. Hoboken is not home to some of the wealthiest residents in the country with the best view on the east coast because its an armpit. Why don’t you bloggers go outside and maybe take a drive to the city Frank Sinatra was born in, have a beer at the Whiskey Bar and take a seat on the pier and gaze at the lights of NYC, after you’ve walked the cobblestones and brick paved streets in probably the most charming city in the tristate area you’d think twice before labeling Hoboken an armpit. Wikipedia armpit, bet you dont come up with Hoboken, but Wiki Hobken and maybe you’d see my point. Rant over.

  • Anderson

    I agree with Lauren Jared. You need to get clue before you call a city the armpit of the world. How posh is your section of town Jared?

  • Maya

    I’ve never been a fan – but I love the haircut and that color looks gorgeous on her.

  • Michelle

    Oh how cute. Mischa is pretending to read a serious book.

  • anon

    I think the comment was related to the state: New Jersey, and not hoboken specifically. And don’t hate on Jared, if you google “armipit of america” New Jersey comes up as the second hit.



  • Jack

    Ummm Mischa Barton quit ‘The OC’ which is why she still gets a lot of attention. She wasnt on the show when it was cancelled…in fact the show was cancelled because people stopped watching becuz she was gone.

    Dont be suprised if people are still interested in her. ‘One Tree Hill?’ What is that?

    oh is that that ‘OC/Dawsons’ rip-off? That’s still on the air? Ha. In no fucking way does it even deserve to be on tv. such derivitive bullshit. plus the girls are ugly.

  • Jack

    And if one of the OTH “chicks” was killed off. Nobody would stop watching because nobody really watched to begin with….haahaha too mean? true tho.

  • Tonja Lasagna

    in responce to {9 Virginia}

    Mischa looks good in these photos, she looks healthy, not drunk. Maybe that’s why you don’t like her? Stick to cheerleading for Paris Hilton or Lohan, they’re obviously your type.

    As for Bruce Willis and the film ‘Assassination of a High School President,’ it’s going to do very well.
    The synopsis: At a Catholic high school, the popular girl (Barton) teams up with a sophomore newspaper reporter (Reece Thompson) to investigate a case of stolen SAT exams. Once the duo target their suspects, a larger conspiracy is unearthed.

  • Justin

    Why is the New York City area the armpit of America? I think it’s more like the wallet of America.
