A new man for Mischa Barton

MISCHA Barton“They’ve been together for over a month now, Leo is out there trying to make it as an actor, so they move in similar circles. He’s been an extremely positive influence on her. Mischa has complained to cast members, ‘All I can do is smoke cigarettes’, Really, it was blown out of proportion and I’m fine now, But it was just a really bad time for me. It was just that I was overwhelmed, I had too much work going on. I’d had surgery for my wisdom teeth that went really badly. They had to drill into my jaw and I was just in excruciating pain. I had an infection and a dry socket. Meanwhile I still had a schedule to travel. I was going to Europe. I was going to London. I had so much work to do and the surgery had gone so badly for me and I think that I was just starting to feel completely overwhelmed. I have such a new-found respect for people who live with that kind of pain and I think it was just a wake-up call for me about life and respecting life so much more.”
