Mischa Barton Regrets ‘The OC’
Mischa Barton, who we all came to love as Marissa Cooper on The OC, has revealed she’s sorry she ever took on the role.
In an interview with Metro in the UK, the actress was asked if she would do it all again and she answered “probably not.”
“It’s something I came so close to not doing. I had a really great thing with film. People say be grateful for what you have, but it certainly not the kind of thing I was expecting it to be… I’ve kind of seen it all.”
The 28-year-old experienced a very quick rise to fame, during which she says she was “depressed and overworked” and admits that she developed issues with alcohol, which ultimately landed her in rehab.
“It’s tough. It’s really tough when you are young in this business,” she said. “People blow a lot of hot air at you. That’s the main thing. Keep your head on your shoulders – even when you think your head is on your shoulders, sometimes it isn’t!”
“It’s just one of those things when you are growing under a microscope and changing and that evolution is human,” she added. “That humanity aspect means flaws – which people don’t want to see.”
Recently the former OC star found herself in some financial trouble, with a chance her Beverly Hills mansion could be foreclosed.
