Mischa on Her Breakdown - Blame It on the Tooth

9/11/2009 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mischa Barton opened up about her August breakdown today on "The View" -- saying the whole thing started when her wisdom teeth surgery went "really badly wrong."

A lucid Mischa said she was already "overwhelmed" by work when she went in for surgery, which only made things worse. Barton says she was sent to the psychiatric ward because, "If you say anything, like, negative in the hospital and they think you're a risk to yourself, they hold you, they won't let you go."

Mischa said she hit "rock bottom," but is "fine" now and called the whole ordeal a "wake-up call."

I had two surgeries to remove four wisdom (right side, then left side) while I was working nine to eleven hours a day. I never landed in the psych ward.

Don’t celebrities have enough respect for the public to come up with a half way believable lie? I wish they would all SHUT UP and not even bother uttering this pathetic crap. Its just insulting.

I was feeling for her, until she said, "I was around all THESE people and I realized I was nothing like them. I have a career and I work so hard." What a Bitch!!! I mean, just because someone is in the psych ward doesn't mean they don't have a career and work hard. Lots of people have mental illnesses and need treatment. Psych just means 'emotional state', it doesn't mean they're crazy or something! Get a clue, Bitch!

Is this the actress who thought she was too big to continue on the show the O.C. Since then what has she done? I love it when actors think they make the series and when the leave the show you never hear from them again working as an actor. Perhaps they start a clothing or handbag line...
