Mischa Anne Barton (born 24 January 1986) is an English-Irish film, television, and stage actress, and occasional fashion model with British, Irish, and American citizenship. She began her acting career on the stage, appearing in Tony Kushner's Slavs! and took the lead in James Lapine's Twelve Dreams at New York's Lincoln Center. She made her screen debut with a guest appearance on the American soap opera All My Children (1996). She then voiced a character on the Nickelodeon cartoon series KaBlam! (1996–1997). Her first major film role was as the protagonist of Lawn Dogs (1997), an acclaimed drama co-starring Sam Rockwell. She continued acting, appearing in major box office pictures such as the romantic comedy, Notting Hill (1999) and M. Night Shyamalan's psychological thriller, The Sixth Sense (1999). She also starred in the critically acclaimed indie crime drama Pups (1999).

She later appeared in the independent drama, Lost and Delirious (2001) and played Evan Rachel Wood's girlfriend during a guest-arc on ABC's Once and Again (2001–2002). She is best known for her role as Marissa Cooper in the Fox television series The O.C. (2003–2006), for which she received two Teen Choice Awards and a Prism Award nomination. The role catapulted Barton into mainstream fame, and Entertainment Weekly named her the "It Girl" of 2003.

She has since appeared in the comedy remake St Trinian's (2007), the Richard Attenborough-directed drama Closing the Ring (2007) and Assassination of a High School President (2008). She returned to television, starring in the short-lived Ashton Kutcher-produced CW series, The Beautiful Life: TBL (2009). In 2012, she returned to the stage, performing in the Irish production of Steel Magnolias.

Biography

Barton purchased a house in Los Angeles at age nineteen, which she shares with her parents; she splits her time between there and apartments in London and New York.




Relationships
Barton's previous boyfriends have included Cisco Adler, Taylor Locke, Jamie Dornan, Brett Simon, and Brandon Davis (grandson of Marvin Davis). In mid-2007, she briefly dated magician Brandon Silverfield, making a number of appearances as a special guest assistant in his Las Vegas magic show being beheaded by a guillotine and sawed in half in his "Impossible Sawing" illusion. In December 2008, there were reports that she was dating The Kooks frontman Luke Pritchard. The reports were confirmed during the relationship by Pritchard; Barton only confirmed the relationship after the pair split in March 2009, writing on her blog: "I think Luke is a great guy, but the type better suited as a friend. We have a surprising amount of mutual friends in England and I don't regret our time together, I just couldn't keep it going."


Charitable affiliations
Barton is currently the spokesperson for Climate Star, an organization that fights global warming through social and legislative activism. Barton has worked with the home shopping company QVC to raise funds for women's cancer research.

In 2006, Barton also became a spokesperson for the SAFE (Skin Awareness for Everyone) campaign and also lent her name to the TRAID campaign (Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development) in association with Visa Swap. Barton is an ambassador for Save the Children and the "One Water" campaign which brings water to remote locations in Africa, and is on the board of the "Lupus Research Committee" in Los Angeles.


Legal troubles
Barton was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, and driving without a valid license on 27 December 2007.
She was stopped by the police during the early morning hours in West Hollywood, California when she was seen "straddling the lanes and failing to signal for a turn". Police discovered during the traffic stop that Barton "was an unlicensed driver and was driving while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage". She was detained and released later the same morning from the West Hollywood Sheriff Station on US$10,000 bail. On 11 January 2008, Barton called into Ryan Seacrest's syndicated radio show On Air with Ryan Seacrest and said, "I was pulled over... just that. Obviously, I'm 100 percent responsible for my actions in this case and I'm really disappointed in myself... I don't know what to say about it, except that I'm not perfect and I just don't ever intend to do something this stupid again."

Barton was subsequently charged with two misdemeanors: driving without a valid license; and a DUI.

On 21 January 2010, Barton was sued by her New York landlord for refusing to pay three months of $7,000 per month rent on her apartment.

In August 2015, Barton sued her own mother for "breach of contract" and "theft" over a house they own in Beverly Hills, California.


Psychiatric confinement
In July 2009, after seeking medical attention for a tooth infection, Barton was sectioned for two weeks under a 5150 that allows a psychiatrist to involuntarily confine a person deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to themselves and others. She said of the incident, "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.

Incensed by the tabloid culture which celebrates it, the L.A.
