Mischa Barton finally comes clean about her hospital stay over the summer to Heat Magazine according to Bang Showbiz
She said: “I went to the hospital because of pain with my wisdom teeth and I ended up getting ‘put in’, but that’s because I was so overwhelmingly stressed out and upset.
“I think it was my teeth and the stress of having a new job and travelling. I was miserable. Actresses aren’t given the time to recover after stuff like that – you’re expected to bounce back from surgery and work right away again.
“I was shocked it went that far but I think it was necessary for me to take that time out. I’m so much more settled and calm now.
“Ultimately, it was a positive thing.”
She added to Heat magazine: “It’s something that could’ve happened to anyone – going into hospital and having a bad experience then being held on an involuntary psychiatric hold. It happens to more people than you’d know. It’s a common thing.”
It took her a while to come clean about why she was hospitalized, but at least she finally did. Although it isn’t only actresses who are not given time to heal, it really is everyone. And she had more time off than the average person when they have oral surgery, but she wouldn’t know what that is like because she has never really been anything but an actress.
