Mischa Opens Up About Her Hospitalization — Too Soon or Totally Appropriate?

Mischa Barton hasn't talked much since her dramatic hospitalization in July, but there have been plenty of rumors about what landed her in such a rough spot and how she's been doing since. Her new show The Beautiful Life premieres next month and Mischa opened up to Time Out New York about what has been going on in her personal life.

The actress says a recent botched wisdom tooth removal surgery is what put her on the downward spiral and all the stress of work and her pain coming together ended up with her briefly admitted into psychiatric care. She also described the experience as "miserable for everyone" and blames being in LA for all the attention it received. At this point, Mischa wants the focus to be on her work, but perhaps talking about all this will serve to remind everyone of what happened. So what do you think about Mischa being so open — too soon or totally appropriate?

ok, I get that dental surgery can be stressful and scary and painful, but she was put on SUICIDE WATCH people. There must have been some additional problem.

those of you who have never had a botched dental surgery would have no freaking idea of how stressful it can be. first the pain that seems to never get under control, then the surgery that doesn't entirely fix the problem because the infection infiltrates your jaw bone, causing even more pain, which is constant & drives you mad. a simple root canal that's gone awry, whether due to an incompetent dentist or complications that can & do happen despite having a great dentist, can cause a great deal of anxiety and stress. this very thing happened to me in the winter of 2007, and i ended up having full blown anxiety attacks. thankfully i was able to get it under control with a 2 month prescription of anxiety medication, and learning how to de-stress myself with better coping skills. i can see where someone who is as young as this girl would end up needing brief round the clock care after something like that.

She's on a new show. She can't be straight up about anything right now. That's Hollywood, it's not honest.

why wait for 9 months while everyone keeps thinking she was just a mess and then come out with some story, true or not. I say its perfect timing for that.

I agree that PopSugar should have added the choice of this is bullcrap and I don't buy any of it. She is just so gross. Do not like her or her style.

even if there's more to it than what she's saying - i think that it was good that she addressed it since we all know how much ppl like to speculate

True or not, I can see her wanting to address it, so I vote appropriate

More like I don't believe it was just stress. But if she's doing better then good for her.
