Mischa Barton lost weight, poses for the paps in Miami: she looks much better, right?

Mischa Barton had a pretty rough 2010. She gained some weight, she struggled to find a celebrity identity, her ex-boyfriend publicly “joked” that she was “one of the fattest people on the planet,” she tried to look as crackheaded as Lindsay Lohan, and she barely worked. Mischa’s 2011 was mildly better, in my opinion, because I kind of forgot about her. That’s a double-edged sword – Mischa was allowed to fade away for a while, seemingly get her act together, lose some weight, regroup, all out of public view. But, she needs to be seen to remind people that she can be hired for any job they’ve got. Thus, she did a photo shoot with Tyler Shields (where she gnawed raw meat), and she was pap’d at a Target, in what was probably an organized candid photo op.

And now this – Mischa vacationing in Miami with a mystery man. Mischa looks sober, healthy, slender and employable. The dude she’s with looks slightly sketchy, but he doesn’t reek of Eau d’Ouchebag. He looks sort of like Christina Aguilera’s ex-husband, Jordan Bratman, right? That would be a good move for Mischa – hook up with some behind-the-scenes producer-type with money, lay low, be a girlfriend for a year, and then re-emerge with a television project or something. Maybe that’s what she’s doing.

All of the other sites are going on and on about how Mischa has lost weight – and she has and she looks great. She’s still self-conscious about her stomach. You can tell by the way she’s covering up with the towel and positioning herself when she knows she’s being photographed. Still, I can’t hate on her. She needs to work, and I have my doubts that her hustle is any good whatsoever.

    She does look better, I hope she’s sober and getting her life back on track.

  2. Aria says:

    She looks amazing! Hope she gets a decent tv/movie role to put her back in the business. I have hopes for this girl unlike Blohan.

  3. SolitaryAngel says:

    Chica looks great! Good for her; hope she’s sober now.

  4. outofafrica says:

    She has been replaced by the likes of blake lively. She is now irrelevant. Just get married & spare us your mono expression “acting” mischa

  5. El Kiddo says:

    That dude looks a lot like Jon Bernthal a.k.a Shane Walsh from The Walking Dead. Or is it just me?

  6. Franny says:

    That necklace should leave an interesting tan line…

  7. Lola says:

    She’s far from a fav but I want her to pull a Kiki D and start acting again in small but powerful movies.

  8. ToastedSkin says:

    yeah she looks great in these pics. good for her.
    Really hope her career gets going again though.

  9. Turtle Dove says:

    Of course it was planned photo-op. Who would wear a full face of makeup to the pool?

  10. whatevs says:

    she looks so fat in the 2nd pic because she has no waist at all. and people used to say this was the most beautiful girl in the world fff not to mention mariah yeater looks like her only better than her wtf

  11. Annie says:

    Oi, I think she looks good here for her, rather than either fat/too skinny like before, and genuinely happy rather than high. I’m not sure she can act though, I seem to remember her as annoyingly wooden in the OC. Perhaps that was just the character though, since all I can remember her in is that and the sixth sense.

  12. ZenB!tch says:

    That guy looks like one of those guys that hung around Britney before her dad took over.

  13. Cerulean says:

    I think it’s over for her. She never did anything good enough to carry her through. She dated the wrong guys for her career and never did any quality projects. She is not even the pretty girl anymore.

  14. skuddles says:

    She’s totally morphing into Kirsten Dunst…

  15. Chrissy says:

    She’s looks pretty good. There’s nothing wrong with her stomach. I’m not sure if she has enough talent to make a comeback. It can’t be the same old teenage girl crud on tv – that just won’t work for her.

  16. samab says:

    well…her problem was that she had cheesecake on her tights…How can I tell if she’s always sitting on something? I need to see her standing up otherwise i can’t tell.And yeah she wasn’t really relevant before to have a real comeback…much more like starting a new career.
