Mischa Barton Is Insecure About Her Body

… especially about her legs & cellulite.

Here are the details from People Magazine:

Mischa Barton’s personal demons not only included a DUI arrest, relationship breakups and a hospitalization at a psychiatric ward – the actress also struggled with a fluctuating weight and body image.

“She has big self-esteem issues. … She hates her legs,” says a source close to Barton. “She isn’t comfortable with her body. It’s been a big source of stress and self-hate.”

Speculation about 23-year-old actress’s weight and nasty comments from tabloids and blogs also fueled insecurity.

“She had a big problem with those photos of her cellulite. … She didn’t like it,” says another source. “That just was something that contributed to her spiraling but she didn’t do much to fix it because of her partying.”

While another friend tells PEOPLE the photos upset the former O.C. star – “[She was] more pissed off than hurt and she complained a lot about that” – she didn’t let them get “to her too much. … I never saw her diet.”

But when photos showed a thinner Barton, she took to her blog and spoke out about the “crazy press,” telling fans that she’s “happier and healthier than ever so there’s no need to worry about me.”

“Just be happy and secure with yourself,” she wrote on her Web site. “Don’t let other people’s perceptions of you dictate the way you live your life.”

Why she shouldn't she be insecure?!

Come on, she's not that pretty ( not saying this because of the cellulite issue…everybody has or will have cellulite someday)

She should be concerned about her carreer and try to be a good acrtess at least

It really doesn't look like she's uncomfortable with her body, especially legs. She shows them off way too much and this indicates that she likes her legs. If she really hated them, she would try to hide them and wouldn't wear these ugly shorts!

She's a pretty girl overall, although I can name many more much prettier girls than her but I have to be honest – she's the one who looks good enough.

Everyone has body insecurities, even the most beautiful girls. Not a big deal.

I am super insecure about my legs too and I wear shorts that are probably even shorter than hers. When it's hot outside I don't wanna suffer in too much fabric and I know that I'm technically underweight, so other people wouldn't notice what I find so unappealing about myself.

So imagine how it must be for someone who is watched by the press that much, I honestly couldn't deal with it. It's no wonder that she's having a hard time, I feel sorry for her. She's a beautiful woman and there's nothing wrong with her figure.

She just needs to work out!

She is slim to begin with and would look amazing if she just added some muscle to her frame.

Sorry to hear about her insecurities BUT based on the tone in her legs, or lack thereof, she doesn't work out. She needs to pick up some hand weights and get at it (lunges and squats girl). She has a slim figure, she just needs to tone it up. Stop complaining and take action.

Also, WHY wear short-shorts? I mean really.

Poor girl! She's clearly not a teenager anymore, and isn't the type to like exercising–I mean, who the eff cares?! I feel for her, she's scrutinized to hell and back.

That's right. Not necessarily. I don't exercise and I don't have a cellulite. Although I had it when I was a little heavier.

How old are you? Maybe you have good genes and an even better skin, but it's quite a fact that the lack of exercise will sooner or later lead to cellulite. Better to prevent than to treat, right? 🙂

Yes, you're right. Prevention is necessary and working out is really important too, that's why now I'm ready to start excercising 😀

I'm almost the same age as Mischa. And yes, I probably have good genes 😉

I hate my legs too. To the point where I would rather die than wear shorts in public.

I feel for her :

If she really is insecure about her legs (who wouldn't be when tons of people are saying what horrible legs you have), yet still has the balls to wear shorts – that's actually amazing. I wish I had the strength to do that.

if u would rather die than show ur legs, than i advise seeking the help of a psychotherapist

I understand her. It's awful having major insecurities when it comes to your body, I should know. I'm the same height as Mischa, almost the same age and with same problems, even if I'm more a hourglass than a pear shape, I hate my broad shoulders and my legs. It's awful. Sometimes I even refuse hanging out somewhere in a pub with my friends as I feel embarassed having this body… I know it sounds crazy, but that's the way it is. I used to be anorexic and even back then, when I had only bones and skin I looked… Read more »

I honestly think Mischa is one of the most beautiful women on the planet! Although she looked better on the OC, her facial bone structure and those huge blue eyes with her freckles are perfect!! IMO.

I also loooove her body! I love her wide hips and her legs are so long and her stomach is so flat. She has a very unique body compared to the hollywood stereotype.
