Looks like Jack Bauer isn’t the only person mystified by the death of Marissa Cooper.

Mischa Barton recently had the nerve to say that the death of her character was the reason why The OC has been canceled.

The 20-year-old star is really, really thin. She also played Marissa on the teen series and died in a car accident at the end of the last season.

When asked if she was surprised that the show had been axed she told Fox News: “No. They killed me off.”

We hate to break it to Mischa, but The Hollywood Gossip staff – who were huge fans of the series before it started sucking – somehow doubt viewers cared about her character’s demise.

Rachel Bilson is still on it, right? Then perhaps it was the quality of the writing, and not the death of a boring character, that actually led to cancellation.
