Mischa Barton Checks Out Of Hospital

Almost two weeks after being placed on involuntary psychiatric lockdown at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Mischa Barton has been released from the hospital.

Mischa’s rep Craig Schneider told Us Weekly, “I can confirm that she’s left the hospital with the intention to resume production” of her new CW show The Beautiful Life. 

Ashton Kutcher, a creator of The Beautiful Life, spoke to reporters about the actress on Friday. “I can tell you right now Mischa Barton is doing great,” he said.

Mischa was taken from her Los Angeles home on July 15 after calling the police and asking for medical attention. While speculation as to what caused her breakdown has yet to be confirmed, many are pointing to drug and alcohol use as the ultimate reason.

Production on the new show, in which Mischa plays a pill-popping supermodel, is set to begin Friday.

Probably not the best role for her to be playing at the moment, no?
