Mischa Barton Was A Drunk At 14

Mischa Barton was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center yesterday after being placed on psychiatric hold earlier this month when police were called to her Los Angeles home to deal with a “medical issue”. She reportedly has gone back to work on her new show, The Beautiful Life, but also reportedly, she really, really likes to get fucking drunk. The Sun reports:

Meanwhile, a close pal of the volatile star claims her “path to self-destruction” began at the tender age of 14. Stacey Kives – a stylist who worked with Mischa on the set of The O.C. – has revealed the actress developed an alcohol problem in her teens, triggering years of subsequent abuse. She said: “She was on the path to self-destruction – it was just a question of when she was going to be ready to do something about it. “Mischa has been drinking since she was about 14, and she doesn’t drink to have fun any more – she drinks not to feel anything. “But I think this last episode has scared her straight. She finally sounds like she’s seeing reality.”

Man, Mischa Barton seems like a lot of fun. Just like the time last week when I drank half a wine cooler and stayed up past midnight to watch a R-rated movie. I’m so wild! Call me ladies!!
