Actress Mischa Barton is blaming her hospitalization in July on her pain from wisdom tooth surgery and being unable to take painkillers. Read more of what Mischa had to say below.
Mischa was taken from her home in July due to what the Los Angeles police termed “medical issues.” But many sources reported Mischa was actually on psychiatric hold at Cedars Sinai hospital.
Barton has since returned to work on the CW show “The Beautiful Life,” in Manhattan and explained to Time Out New York that things got really bad right before she was to film the series.
Barton said she was traveling abroad and had a wisdom tooth removed. The procedure was so “terrible” she’s still recovering.
“I had to get through it without proper painkillers because I couldn’t take those during work. So it’s been a nightmare.
“I went through a tough spot where everything compounded on me, and it was like a perfect storm, like everything was happening to me at once.”
Mischa said going through that pain without her medication was too much to bear.
“I was down in the dumps about everything there for awhile…I got completely stressed out and couldn’t handle everything, and now I feel really in control.”
Barton says she did not have a nervous breakdown. Things were “pretty bad,” but she claims the media reports were false and overblown.
“The funny thing is, if all this happened in New York, no one would care. New York lets you be who you are, and people aren’t as judgmental. I’m so glad to be back here.”
But one of Mischa’s friends told People magazine that she had been “dealing with a lot of personal issues,” and that she had picked up “some of the bad habits that had gotten out of control a couple of years back.”
