Mischa Barton visits hospital, cancels movie premiere appearance

Actress Mischa Barton, 23, canceled a scheduled appearance at the New York premiere of her new film Homecoming tonight, one day after reportedly calling the Los Angeles Police Department with a health problem. 

Police were called to Barton's home at 3 p.m. Wednesday for a "medical issue," People reports. The star's rep, Craig Schneider, told EW via a statement: "Ms. Barton was safely transferred to medical treatment for which she remains hospitalized, as per the recommendation of her doctor." Schnider told People that the LAPD officers were there simply to protect the star. "Police were involved due to Ms. Barton's celebrity status," he said, adding that the actress is now "okay and resting."

Police would not confirm Access Hollywood's claim that the actress has been placed under involuntary psychiatric hold at an L.A. hospital.

According to the CW's Paul McGuire, Barton's upcoming drama The Beautiful Life, which begins production July 22 and premieres Sept. 16, will not be affected by the incident.

    Not surprising to hear since she’s already been to rehab once and it’s obvious in her pictures lately that she is under the influence of something. She looks strung out.

    Perhaps when that piggy Perez Hilton types her name as “Mushy” w/ his hooves, he’s on to something. Good going, fatass! Now if you could just jump off a very tall building and take WHOREdonna down w/ you, we could have some PEACE in this world. :-)

    How is this news? Who cares if some undertalented Hollywood whore is unable to overcome perennial adolescence??
    There’s a war on, for Christ’s sake. If our 18 year old soldiers can suck it up and perform their duty, this little skank’s inability to do the far less that’s asked of her is nothing short of pathetic.

    Get well soon Mischa. You’re awesome. Can’t wait for TBL.
