Mischa Barton: How Life Has Changed Since The O.C.

Mischa Barton: How Life Has Changed Since The O.C.

Mischa Barton (in Jenni Kayne) arrives at the premiere of her new dark comedy, Assassination of a High School President, held at the Eccles Theatre during the 2008 Sundance Film Festival on Wednesday in Park City, Utah.

On staying busy after The O.C.: “My life has changed a lot. I’ve been busy and working and rediscovering everything about making all these films in a row.” (Walled In and You And I (Finding tATu))

On being reflective: “It’s nice now to take a break and kind of look at what I’ve done. We didn’t have long to shoot this movie but it was fine. I think almost the pressure helped because we joked around a bit, but there was always this time thing hanging over our heads, so maybe it was good for us.”

On Assassination of a High School President: “I thought it was really smartly written for a teen movie. It’s got great dialogue and really great characters, and even though they’re kind of stereotypical, they’re not cliche and I really like that. It’s kind of dark, not to say that my sense of humor is dark but I really like where it’s at. The characters are hopefully really believable and not over the top.”

    she put some weight on… don’t like that -.-

  • Astrid

    Bless her heart. She’s been a failure since leaving “The O.C.” and her life has been in shambles. Hopefully, she will be able to pull things together after her DUI and the reports of her constant drug use. Her mother must be mortified after her other daughter OD’d around the same time as Mischa’s DUI. So so sad.

    Mischa’s voice is a lot lower now than when she was starting out on the OC. Is it because she smokes and drinks a lot?

  • melissa

    r u kidding me? please do not ever compare mischa to blake lively. mischa makes that girl look like shite. Oh and her career is not over, reviews for this movie came out, and mischa is said to have given a captivating performance. STUPID BITCHES. Why do u have to be so heartless. Do u think mischa cares about being compared to other people, especially nobodys like blake lively. Do u think ur comments m,atter to her. Mischa is moving forward so shut the hellup. Also, mischa can work any look. This movie is going to be a phenomenon. Just wait.
