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.”
