Mischa Barton Looking For a Job

by at . Comments

A month after the CW mercifully pulled the plug on The Beautiful Life after just two episodes, the ill-fated show's star is now looking for a new gig.

"I'm just figuring out what my next move will be and looking at a lot of different projects and figuring out what I want to do," Mischa Barton said.

Although she said that "people really liked" the show - loosely based on producer Ashton Kutcher's days as a model - she says she's moving on.

"I just don't think the time was right," the troubled 23-year-old star, who played a troubled model, said. "It was just a really sh---y situation."

Sh---y show is more like it.

Mischa Barton is looking (relatively) good, all things considered.

Just the same, the series' cancellation isn't discouraging Barton - who was admitted in July to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. after a possible suicide attempt in July.

She says she's open to projects on the small screen as well as movies.

"I think they're both great. These days, TV is about as good as movies. I'm looking forward to being part of something that is right in the future."

We're thinking a pilot co-starring Ashlee Simpson about girls who get plastic surgery in Hollywood should be in the works at some point soon.

She has been riding that roller coaster of fame, and it shows. Some people that get bit by the bug need to get over it....move on (like Lilo) or prepare to suffer more losses in the spotlight. People seem to be more intrigued by the trainwrecks of Hollywood, than the actual stars...it is sad....
