Mischa Barton is trying too hard to look like a strung out crackhead


Nobody really gives a crap about Mischa Barton anymore, and these photos are a good reason why. Are these photos funny? Sure. They’re actually pretty hilarious, just because Mischa looks so obviously like she’s coming down from something hard. It’s also funny because you actually have to try to look like this – as in, it takes effort to look this strung out. It’s an affectation. You know how I know? Because Mischa is recreating the same Rite-Aid run that Lindsay Lohan took two nights ago. Only Lindsay had the decency to look genuinely strung out, like she was coming down off something and made the effort to appeal sober, and Lindsay also threw on some yeast-infectiony pleather shorts. All Mischa can manage is bedhead and a denim shirt. Poser. And only Mischa would be dumb enough to want to emulate Lohan’s crackhead status.


You might ask yourself, just how is Mischa relevant anymore? Well, she’s working! Sort of. She got a gig modeling for some German designer, and the images just came out this week. To say that they’ve been ‘Shopped is an understatement. Styleite notes, “Her waist is whittled beyond recognition and her legs — particularly her thighs — look like they’ve been trimmed and toned with the help of the trusty airbrush. But perhaps most egregious is the liberties they’ve taken with the 24-yeard old’s face.” No joke. I thought these were Avril Lavigne photos at first.

    She kind of looks like Lindsay Lohan in the first 2 pics…

  2. Bill Hicks is God says:

    I agree, totally contrived. She doesn’t need to try to look like a crackhead – that’s how she rolls out of bed and walks out the door daily.

  3. denise says:

    The zebra looks good :)

  4. OMJ says:

    That picture where she’s in the black dress… It’s that super-hot zombie pose. BRAAAAIIIINNNNSSSSS.

  5. MM says:

    I don’t think she has to try whatsoever!! cutie pie zebra though!

  6. Melinda says:

    WOW! She has been photo shopped almost to the point of that Ralph Lauren model that looked like a preying mantis, or Kim Catrall on the satc poster. Yikes.

  7. aenflex says:

    Come on yall – she could be really, really nice deep down…

  8. snowball says:

    Well, she does look like she lost some bloat and she’s not wearing hideous yellow pants. I wish she’d do something with her hair.

    Girl, put some makeup on, have someone chop off those split ends and use conditioner for god’s sake.

    Okay, I love the denim coat.

  9. Bee says:

    She looks like “cousin it” in that top photo. No, I’m sorry I take that back. Cousin it looked much better.

  10. lucy2 says:

    I wonder if she’s seeing how much attention Lohan still gets and thinks she might as well try it too.

  11. TQB says:

    As long as they were retouching, why not fix the weirdo misaligned boobage in the zebra pic?

  12. moo says:

    “trying”????? Um… let’s just say, she IS!

  13. Bopa says:

    What exactly does she do now?

  14. Jeri says:

    But she is succeeding.

  15. Katyusha says:

    Off topic, but they should’ve also photoshopped the halter and lead rope off the zebra; otherwise, it’s looks like she’s just posing with a zoo animal.

  16. Cinderella says:

    Her dress, shoes and roots match. Awesome!

  17. Poor Mischa. I feel really tenderly toward her, though I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA why.

  18. Spooge says:

    What is wrong with you? She looks damned gorgious.

  19. stephiespoons says:

    She looks like Sarah Michelle Gellar in the last pic.

  20. Boombeeba says:

    While she may more than likely quite possibly be “strung out” in these photos, the fact of the matter is none of us were there so who are we to speculate? Not to play capt. Save-A-Ho but how do we know if she has severe mental problems that go past drug addiction? Perhaps she was up for days on end bc she couldn’t sleep after reading all these hideous comments & seeing these photos of her showing herself as a shell of her former self?? Perhaps she is brushing up on her “method” skills for her next cameo as a Hooker/ Junkie??? Perhaps she just ran out of her blow/ tweak???? Perhaps I’m just being a D*ck lmao

  21. Boombeeba says:

    FYI most of u guys find her offensive but I think we could get along. If she takes a shower I’d have no problems munching on her rug

  22. serena says:

    At least she’s working XD

  23. SallyJay says:

    @CelebNewsWi – I do too. I think it’s because I was such a big fan of the OC. It was hilarious! outside of all the haven’twebeenhereBEFORE? storylines. I wish Mischa well – really wish she’d get her act together. Sharpish.
