The Beautiful Life: TBL star Mischa Barton is speaking out for the first time to reveal the reasons she ended up in a hospital's psych ward last month.
The troubled actress says she was going through a period of her life that resulted in "a perfect storm" that resulted in her hitting absolute "rock bottom."
"I went through a tough spot where everything compounded on me, and it was a perfect storm, like everything was happening to me at once," Barton said.
"The show, travel and then a fairly routine surgery that went wrong - it’s still just healing," said Barton, who may or may not have tried to take her own life.
Shortly after her stint in a Los Angeles mental ward, Barton headed to NYC to film A Beautiful Life. The "routine surgery" was to take out her wisdom teeth.
Mischa Barton is seen here sans makeup and mental problems.
"I've never had surgery before - it all went wrong at the same time I had to have a second surgery and it almost delayed shooting," the 23-year-old star said.
Mischa Barton also admitted battling depression: "I was down in the dumps about everything for a while. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom about things."
"Sometimes, you have to get the most stressed-out just to feel better. I got completely stressed and couldn’t handle everything. Now I feel really in control."
We're not sure if we follow that logic, but we're glad she's doing better!
