Mischa Barton opens her heart about her dangerous hard-partying lifestyle

FORMER “It girl” Mischa Barton has opened her heart about how her dangerous hard-partying lifestyle grew frighteningly out of control.

The 27-year-old blonde beauty says she has finally got her life back together – after numerous scrapes caused family members – including her mother Nuala from Co. Roscommon – to stage an intervention.

Mischa, who shot to fame ten years ago at the tender age of 17 with the hit US TV series “The OC”, says of her wild days: “We thought, ‘Work hard, play hard.'”

In 2007 the actress was busted for drunk driving. Then in 2009, shortly after her parents attempted an intervention, she blacked out under the influence of a sedative and ended up in a psychiatric ward after she threatened to kill herself.

“It was a full-on breakdown,” she tells tomorrow’s People magazine. “I was under enormous pressure.”

The terrifying episode forced the actress to slow down and finally focus on getting herself healthy.

But even that led to criticism when cruel showbiz magazines attacked her for gaining weight.

“At first it was always, ‘She’s too skinny, she must be sick,'” says Barton. “Then it was, ‘She’s too big.’ I was never the right weight.”
