    Mischa Barton Told To Gain Weight For Show

    March 18th, 2009 8:51am EDT


    Mischa Barton has reportedly been ordered to put on weight or face losing her role in a new TV show. The former O.C. actress has agreed to play the part of a supermodel in CW network's upcoming drama pilot "A Beautiful Life."

    But Barton has been told to pile on the pounds by bosses who are worried her skinny frame will set a bad example to young viewers, according to U.K. newspaper The Daily Express.
    A source says, "The producers are very mindful that their target audience is teenage girls so it's important to not send out the wrong message. Mischa has the part on condition she does not lose weight - they want her to put weight on if she can."


    Too skinny?

    IMO I think this blind is bullshit. Since when did producers care about sending out the wrong message? I think that Mischa's publicist planted this item for attention, especially considering it was from the UK Daily Express.

    It's interesting that she is rail thin on top but still normal sized on the bottom. Might suggest she's not meant to be so slim?

    Maybe, but I'm similar being a pear. My top half looks really thin while my lower is bigger. I think it sucks. Her lower is usually bigger than mine though.

    I think she looks better slim. She just needs to exercise more.

    Whatever. They need to send Mushy to the gym. She's either gaunt, skinny-fat, or cellulite-d out.

    I'm the same as you Peike. In the past when I've lost alot of weight I looked all bony on my top half but not much different on the bottom, and yes I agree, it's TOTALLY annoying!

    She probably should exercise more and build some muscle on her top half and tone her lower half.

    She looks like someone who loses weight simply by not eating. She needs to start running and working out her bottom half. She's skinny from the waist up, but the waist down is another story.
