Mischa Barton: Everyone think I’m insane

Mischa Barton has opened up about her time in a psychiatric unit. The former OC star –  who was forcibly held at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for two weeks last year — has spoken to Tatler magazine about the circumstances surrounding being held under a 5150 order, claiming he situation was a misunderstanding over a tooth infection that spiraled out of control.

“I had this terrible surgery to remove my wisdom teeth and it drove me mad,” she claimed.

“I had infections and I couldn’t eat anything except Slush Puppies for three months and I can’t tell you how awful it was…

“Anyway, I’d had enough and I went to the hospital.

“I was in a lot of pain and if they feel you are depressed or a danger to yourself they can hold you on a 5150.

“I am terrified of needles and they wanted to pump me full of drugs and I said, ‘No, absolutely not. I don’t want to be here,’ and got into a fight with the nurses, and that led to my 5150.

“Part of me wishes those things had never happened in the public eye. I wish I could have been perfect.

“For ages after that 5150 I’d walk down the street and people would give me the crazy eye: ‘There’s Mischa Barton, she’s insane, isn’t she?’”
