Mischa Barton: I’m not too skinny

Lindsay isn’t the only starlet who’s been getting press about her weight loss. Mischa Barton is fed up with the reports on her weight loss, and has taken to her website to confront the rumors. She claims that there has been “a lot of crazy press” about her weight, and that though she’s lost a few pounds, it’s nothing to worry about. Spending time in India and Paris have just “helped” her lose weight.

So lately there’s been a lot of crazy press about my weight and just so you guys know I’m happier and healthier than ever so there is no need to worry about me. Things are really well in Mischa world and I’ve just been watching what I eat.

I still love my pilates and yoga, and have cut back on fatty foods a bit. My time in India and Paris really just helped me lose a little bit of weight but there’s nothing drastic going on!

I appreciate the concern, I just wish the press wouldn’t harbor on it as I think it’s very unhealthy for young girls to read about and pay attention to. To my female fans: Just be happy and secure with yourself and don’t let other people’s perceptions of you dictate the way you live your life.

So I’m confused. She says that she’s getting bad press about losing weight, but it’s okay, because she’s on a diet and is exercising. She never seemed like the kind of girl who had weight problems at all. Unlike Lindsay, who is naturally a little curvier all over, Mischa is naturally thin. The only bad press I’ve heard about Mischa’s body is people commenting on the cellulite on her thighs – the girl used to have hips! Give her a break!

Mischa couldn’t act herself out of a paper bag, but she’s pretty and has an interesting style, most of the time. According to her IMDB page, she has quite a few B-list movies coming up, and since this story about her body was on People’s website, maybe her agent was fishing for some publicity. Other than the scandal about her DUI last year, she’s a pretty tame starlet, and press is press, whatever form it comes in.

    Dear, when your head starts competing with your feet because those are the two biggest things people see when they look at you, yes, you ARE too thin.

  2. Courtney H says:

    She looks like she’s the same weight (maybe even a few pounds heavier) as when she was on the OC.

    Didn’t she and her boyfriend break up somewhat recently? Might be a contributing factor.

  3. manda says:

    She may be thin, but she has to fight the cellulite. I have seen the backs of her legs in too many gossip rags. And the thing is, super skinny women still get cellulite, it’s genetic. But isn’t there some sort of shot that all the rich and famous get to smooth it out?

  4. Ash says:

    she looks the same she always did, IMO.

  5. ER says:

    Who could forget the spandex pants debacle? She’s got one of those ‘big hips, but skinny everywhere else’ figures. And no, I’m not suggesting her hips really are big, but that is where any extra weight settles on her.

  6. Rougelatete says:

    She’s an idiot. She wishes the press wouldn’t “harbor” on it? Doesn’t she mean “harp” on it? Her statement doesn’t even make sense. She should stop using mind-altering drugs.

  7. Jaclyn says:

    She is naturally skinny, but she is definitely looking too thin right now. I think it’s easy for her, she’s lucky.

  8. Bodhi says:

    Who the hell cares about Mischa Barton anyway? She hasn’t been relevant in years

  9. adrseq says:

    has she been in anything lately???

  10. mamalama says:

    If by “interesting style” you mean that see-through dress she wore recently, then yes she does.

  11. Rio says:

    Geugh. I’d imagine that if you plucked her that neck muscle, you’d hear a resounding bass vibrato back.

  12. Nic says:

    Why would someone who is already slim need to cut back on fatty foods? Her choice of language is very telling. Saying that her time in India and Paris “helped” her lose a bit of weight would indicate that it is something she wanted to do and is pleased with the results. Her whole statement seems to suggest that she certainly has issues with her weight and that she’s tried to lose some. Very sad really that she thinks she needs to.

  13. gee_gee says:

    Her problem isn’t her weight. She’s boring.

  14. FFS says:

    She loves the attention, I am sure of that

  15. TinaWithPom says:

    If Tim Burton teamed up with Mattel’s Barbie designers, they’d come up with Mischa Barton.

  16. ssavannah kanakas says:

    I can understand why she’s the way she is. Society complains no matter what. You’re too skinny, you’re too fat. Anyway, she’s grossly skinny as hell!!!

  17. FF says:

    Celebs, they think we’re idiots. I remember before the whole drugs thing Amy Winehouse insisted she lost weight using the treadmill.

    A few months back the press was all over Barton for being to fat and pear-shaped – her weight has gone up and down like most actresses – granted on a more minute level than the general public but she doesn’t ‘stay skinny’ anymore than anyone else.

    Nevermind her being too skinny, why doesn’t she get a job and try breathing some life into that corpse called a career that she had that one time.

    Although on second though, maybe not. I’d sooner see more Rachel Bilson.

  18. Acemeister says:

    She needs a sammich, stat!

  19. Melissa says:

    Man you guys are harsh. If you don’t care so much, why are you reading this page and bothering to write comments? Leave the girl alone! As my mother would say, “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”.

  20. Blahnik’s one of a kind design catches the heart of women and now his designs made him as the largest footwear industries and very famous in the world.
