Mischa Barton, 31, was taken by police to the hospital following a disturbance call, after she began yelling incoherently over her fence at her home in West Hollywood.


The former The O.C. star was reportedly making “incoherent statements” and shouting while wearing only a dress shirt, enough to prompt neighbors to report her behavior to police.  “She was making incoherent statements that made absolutely no sense and she was transported to the hospital,” said the Sheriff’s deputy involved. She will be given a mental evaluation while admitted.

Barton has been hospitalized before and has open about her past experiences with mental illness, admitting that she’s suffered from breakdowns before. “It was terrifying,” she said in 2013. “Straight out of Girl, Interrupted. Story of my life.” She was admitted to a psychiatric ward in 2009 for a “full-on breakdown.”

Barton has also been vocal about the pressure of being a woman in the industry, and having to maintain and certain body image and lifestyle to remain in the spotlight. “It was always, ‘She’s too skinny, she must be sick,'” she described. “Then it was, ‘She’s too big.’ I was never the right weight.”
