Mischa Barton committed to psych ward

July 16th, 2009 // 93 Comments

Mischa Barton was placed on involuntary psychiatric hold at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center yesterday, according to People:

On Wednesday, Barton called police at 3 p.m. with a health problem, LAPD Officer April Harding confirmed to PEOPLE. “We assisted her with a medical issue and removed her from her home,” says Harding. She adds that no paramedics were involved and no arrests were made, but confidentiality laws prevent her from revealing details about Barton’s condition.
The star’s rep, Craig Schneider, tells PEOPLE that police were only needed to protect the former O.C. star from the media as she was transported to her doctor.

Jesus. I wonder what made her snap. I mean, besides looking in the mirror and realizing “Holy shit, I’m Mischa Barton! NOOOO!”

    involuntary psychiatric hold is code for suicide attempt. in california if you attempt suicide you are placed in psychiatric care for 72 hours.

    Probably an eating disorder. Don’t people with out-of-control eating disorders sometimes get put in the psychiatric ward?

  7. kitty_kat

    Oops! No paramedics? Then I got nothing. I don’t know. Maybe #55 is right with suicide?

    It’s no wonder she had a nervous break down…..with sites like this and asshole Perez, picking her apart over the stupidest shit day after day…it was bound to happen.

    Imagine if YOU were ripped to shreds 24/7 over the most mundane things. She started acting as a young girl, probably thought that was going to be a great part of her life and than Blam-O she’s put under asinine scrutiny by the likes of TMZ. Are you to tell me you all were perfect little angels as teens and young adults? I doubt it…

    You couldn’t pay me enough to be a celebrity these days…fame destroys.

    Hey # 31: You are welcome we saved your asses in WW2, otherwise you would be speaking kraut right now. Ungrateful pastie…

    this is just PR stunt! wake up people!!!. her new movie comes out today “Homecoming” about a obsessed girl still in love with her ex. as soon as i found out about the movie coming out today, and this incident that happened just a day or so ago i TOTALLY realized PR stunt!! so typical Hollywood.

  15. what?

    64. Henry

    I doubt that….this is not something to be proud of.

  16. #62 – Cry me a fucking river. Most of these celebridouches have their publicists tip off the papsmears when they’re going to walk their dogs or buy milk. Odd how some celebs stay out of the spotlight, isn’t it? Now, go weep into your commemorative edition OC beach towel.

  17. They shouldve commit this chick since she took a stroll with menzie stains in her sweatpants….kinda feel sorry for this broad!

    I’m not a fan of the OC and I’m not crying a “fucking river”. I just commented on the way gossip sites can rip someone to shreds for the most stupid shit and how it’s sad that these young stars are over before they even get a chance.

    You’re a fucking asshole, but I bet you already know that….I’m sure you’re called a douche bag on a regular basis.

  19. Hey BIP ( who is british ) KISS MY AMERICAN ASS YOU BITCH. IF IT WAS NOT FOR THE AMERICAN SERVICE MEN AND WOMAN YOU BIG MOUTH WOULD NOT BE RUNNIG. TAKE A FUCKING SHOWER YOU STINKING ASS FISH SUCKING CRY BABBY.

  23. #68 – Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? Seriously sweetheart, if you want to change the world and engage in social commentary, you’re more out of place than a Black man at a Klan rally. And most people call me sir, though I’d gamble most people who tell you’d they’d call the next day, don’t.

  24. ghost- I DO NOT NORMALLY SPEAK IN SUCH A MANNER BUT WHEN IT COMES TO ASSHOLES BRITISH OR ANYTHING ELSE, BASHING AMERICANS WHO SERVED IN WORLD WAR 2, I GET PISSED. AS FOR MY MOTHER, SHE IS GONE. SHE DIED DURING THE WAR. SIR.

    LOL, you have nerve to comment on my “mouth” when you’re the one who started it with, “Cry me a FUCKING river”…..you’re not only a douche bag, you’re also a giant hypocrite. And you’re not funny with your stupid little analogy.

  26. # 71 GANDO,

    IF IT WAS ME YOU WERE POSTING ABOUT, I HAVE RECOVERED. FEEL SO MUCH BETTER NOW.

  27. #75 – Most things, like irony and originality, are lost on you, aren’t they? You must be great fun at parties… for the deaf.

    Quick there’s another Mischa post! RUN!!!

  28. Goodbye Connie

    @26 – i wanted to comment that why is elijah wood wearing a wig… great observation.

    Yawn……

  30. #79 – Opening wide for me I see… thanks but like the “Let’s Pick an STD” game show, I’ll pass, thanks…

  31. BushStillSucks

    There should be some kind of warning that confirms you want to view ugly before pics like that pop up

  32. notfunny

    there it is young men all over the world, know whats your getting yourself into when you get involved with a ukranian/russian bitch in this world. They make look good at 15-21 but after that they make their gradual descent into the babushka realm. Don’t fall for the trap!

  33. jason

    here’s the thing though. before the O.C., mischa was a very respected child actress. ever see Lawn Dogs starring her and Samuel Rockwell? it’s a beautiful indie film about ppl that don’t seem to fit in with the world around them. she really had a rather promising career. if you go to IMDB and other sites, check out her early filmography…it’s really quite sad that things have gotten to this point. she could be a very respected actress right now, if only she made the right decisions. i think it goes back to the O.C. and our celebrity culture…this girl has been chewed up and spit out. sad. but hey, everybody loves a comeback kid! i personally hope she turns this shite around.

  34. watevs

    i wouldn’t say she’s freaked out on drugs, or stimulants/meth. as she doesn’t look intensely junkie. like amy winehouse.
    though the teeth thing is tricky.
    it sounds like she’s tried to commit suicide, or had a nervous breakdown.
    drugs or no drugs, it’s a traumatic thing for somebody to experience.
    but the brain is an amazing organ,
    that can do extraordinary things.
    hopefully she can recover quickly.

    “She has been on a destructive path for a while now,” People magazine quoted a friend as saying. “Her drug and alcohol [use] has gotten to a point where it drove people away,” the friend added. “I don”t think she knows her limits,” adds the pal. Currently, the 23-year-old actress has been put under involuntary psychiatric evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Barton has battled demons before. In July 2008, she told Marie Claire magazine that she’d sought treatment for her problems. Experts say Barton could be discharged by Saturday afternoon if she demands to be released or doctors find her to be stable.”

    omg! did she try to kill herself or something? she’s more worse than lindsay lohan and she is starving herself all the time.crazy!

  39. OMG. 5150s are so 2008.

    I don’t think she needs the bangs. She can actually get away with putting her hair up. Most women falsely believe they can get away with it.

  40. brainstorm

    #31 you´re completely right.

    I don´t understand what´s the problem here with Mischa being British, what does it have to do with her breakdown? and why do you all Americans think you are better than others?? Surprise. YOU. ARE. NOT. Except those few Indians that were living there before, all Americans are ancestors of Bristish, Spanish, Dutch and other nationalities who colonized the country you´re livin in, no one is A REAL AMERICAN!

    So #13. #53. #63. , #74.
    go fuck yourself, you are ALL OF BRITISH OR OTHER ORIGIN, no American saved the world during the WWII, all of your brave soldiers were just European or other ancestors so STOP BITCHIN THERE IS FINALLY THE RIGHT TIME FOR YOU TO LEARN WHAT DOES MODESTY MEAN YOUR EGO IS ALWAYS BIG YOUR BRAIN STILL EMPTY

  41. A

    How small your memories are, Mr Superficial and readers.
    Mischa Barton was previously a friend of Mr Superficial, endorsing you personally, via her own website.
    I guess that was a previous, wittier, Mr Superficial at the time.

  42. Alyson

    ok why are yu arguing about your origins when that doesnt even pertain to the picture that you are commenting on????? I dont care if your british, American, Indian, Irish, Scottish, or whatever the hell you are. Lets stick to the topic folks.

  43. I hope this beautiful, striking, young and talented woman starts being good to herself…..Drugs, no good men, and starvation are all roads to a hard unhealthy life…….
