Mischa Barton says cellulite pics were doctored

Mischa Barton may have gained a scant few pounds since her character met a fateful end on The O.C., but she doesn’t have a bunch of cellulite rippling down her legs like some recent pictures show. (And the girl is gorgeous on the rare occasion when she’s dressed properly.) Mischa says through her rep that recent bikini photos of her that show dimpling cellulite are photoshopped and altered to make it out to be much worse than it is. What’s more is that the guy who took the photos has a vendetta against her, and is the paparazzo who was given a restraining order for harassing Nicole Kidman. He sounds like a real creep in these quotes from the NY Daily News:

“Those photos are doctored,” Barton’s rep, Lisa Perkins, tells us. “I’m not saying she’s perfect, nobody is. But they’ve given a 22-year-old woman the legs and bottom of an 80-year-old.”

“Look at the shots that were taken shortly before on a beach in L.A. Did she develop all that cellulite in a couple of weeks? There’s a lot you can do with Photoshopping…”

Barton’s publicist contends that Aussie photographer Jamie Fawcett – whom she calls a “parasite” – is out to make the former “O.C.” star look bad because “she called him out for taking the topless shots.”

Fawcett argues, “I wouldn’t seek to publicly embarrass her with nudity or health issues or body image issues.

“It is a shame that publications tend to highlight an issue that is not fair to a young girl. … However, sometimes these are the things that sell pictures.”

The snapper says he gave Barton fair warning that he was gunning for her when they met while she was on vacation in Australia.

“We spoke to each other on [Henning Island], and that’s when I showed her my camera,” he said. “I did warn her it was a public place, and if she wanted privacy she shouldn’t be there.”

Fawcett denied Barton’s claim that he’s some kind of pervert. “I’m not a perv, and I didn’t intentionally mean to embarrass her. I don’t just set out and start my day thinking I want to get any celebrity topless.

“I once saw Keanu Reeves dancing in the nude on a balcony with a girl and decided not to shoot them.”

The paparazzi take those type of pictures because they’re worth more money. When you add a bunch of cellulite they’re even more worthwhile to a crappy rag like the Daily Mail, who makes it their business to make asinine remarks about some celebrity’s body just about every day. Barton should be able to step out onto her balcony though without being photographed. The photographer himself told her he would get her on the beach – not at her hotel.

If only Mischa would stop dressing herself and let someone else do it for her, she could highlight her natural beauty properly. It’s a shame that the one time she’s half-dressed and isn’t wearing an outfit that makes you scratch your head, someone makes her butt and thighs bigger and adds a bunch of cellulite. It’s like she’s doomed to be fug no matter what.

    Maybe it’s just because I have enough cellulite for two, but I’m not entirely sure that those photos were doctored all that much. Look at her right leg, just where the cuff of her shorts starts to split. Take it from me — that’s cellulite, not shadows. AND cellulite is genetic. She might be in great shape and thin as a rail, but she can’t necessarily fight genetics.

  2. AC says:

    I think that its just REALLY bad lighting and she had her legs tensed up. I have a lot of cellulite too :oops: but how much shows is dependant on the lighting and what im doing with my body. If the pictures were photoshopped they were maybe exaggerated but i believe she’s probably got a substantial ammount (LIKE MOST OF US). Direct sunlight is the WORST lighting!!! :evil:

  3. headache says:

    This isn’t the first time we’ve seen pics of Mischa’s cellulite so I think it’s the angle and the lighting and not photoshop.

    It would probably help if her body was more toned. I know you can be toned as hell and still have cellulite but I can’t help but think hers is worse because she is so flabby overall.

  4. Megan says:

    I agree with The Cat, in these photos you can see her legs are wrinkley under those shorts. It’s possible those bikini shots were photoshopped to look much worse, but her cellulite does look pretty bad in these shots too. I think she is just unlucky.

  5. Kolby says:

    It’s entirely possible for her to have that much cellulite at 22 – she’s not a gym rat, she’s been known to be more of a party girl, and pp are right – cellulite is genetic, AND thin women are more liekly to have prominent cellulite. I don’t see what the big deal is. So what if she looks like 80% of the women on the planet?

  6. journey says:

    it’s true about the thin, not working out bit. remember when paris was flashing her butt around town? had more wrinkles than a shar-pei puppy.

    and no, there’s nothing wrong with that, most women have cellulite, but since it was paris and she was flashing all the photographers, she’s fair game. mischa’s not so bad, i’ll cut her some slack and say, maybe it was the lighting, maybe it was photoshopped. do we really care all that much? she’s not the most exciting girl.

  7. Mairead says:

    God love her, sure isn’t she half-Irish, what else would you expect? :wink: (not being entirely serious)

    I agree, the raking sunlight is not doing her any favours. I like to take my architectural shots in raking sunlight as it brings out the texture of the building fabric, whilst direct sunlight just flattens it. :mrgreen:

    So in poor Mischa’s case the raking light enhances any imperfections in the skin, whilst strong direct light would have smoothed it out. :|

    Oh and that paparazzo is a pure-bred scuuuuuuuuumbaaaag. :evil:

  8. h says:

    Poor girl. She is pretty enough, yet, still not perfect.

  9. hello says:

    That pap might be a jerk who doesn’t like her, but she’s proven many times that she isn’t a very nice person either…sucks when karma gets you in the ass! haha!

    And, she’s also shown us her cellulite many times before. Just follow the orange line on the pics above. Cellulite. Or did they photoshop that in as well? There is a pic from when she first got her dog and it has super bad cellulite on her legs.

    I’m seeing some cellulite on her legs in the pictures you just posted! She probably doesn’t have nearly as much as those bikini pictures, but still, she should get to work on that. Maybe take a lesson from Kim Kardashian and get some cellulite treatments, it’s not like she can’t afford it.

    Please, the only time fat got close to that stick figure was the last producer she slept with ! :lol:

    Everyone knows she’s got the worst cellulite in hollywood………..who’s she trying to kid?

    I had read some good things about the Made from Earth Aloe Jojoba Creme Therapy and it’s ability to smooth out older stretch marks and cellulite. I was skeptical yet hopeful and I can say that after three weeks of applying only once a day, this has in fact smoothed out and drastically reduced the appearance of the stretch marks on my legs.

    I’ve been using this product for about a month now and I noticed a difference in the smoothness or texture of the stretch marks on my arms too. I read the many reviews about this product and heard good things. I don’t expect the marks to disappear completely, but there definitely is a SIGNIFICANT difference. All I can say is I will be buying this product again. Its way worth the money for only $30 a bottle.

    I am going to now try the Made from Earth Aloe Skin Treatment which is designed for the face and can help with wrinkles. I highly recommend the Aloe Jojoba Creme Therapy (from Made from Earth skincare) for those ladies who are looking to reduce cellulite or stretch marks. Use for 1-2 months. You will see perm results.
