Acting fashion: Mischa Barton
Actress Mischa Barton talks to FE about hiking, chocolate and her love of clothes
British-American actress Mischa Barton launched her eponymous handbag label in 2008. Now in its eighth season, the brand releases its debut clothing offer and opens its first flagship store in London’s Spitalfields district this spring.
I knew I’d made it when… the paparazzi chased me incessantly.
The person who influenced me the most was… my mum.
You wouldn’t know it, but I’m really interested in… music and art.
When the weekend comes I… go on hikes and take care of my dogs.
Growing up I wanted to be… an actress, or somehow involved in fashion.
The thing I want to do before I retire is… travel the world. I love seeing different cultures and places.
I spent my first pay packet on… clothes – even as a little girl I had a love of fashion.
Doing this job allowed me to meet… a lot of very special people and pursue other creative endeavours such as my bag and clothing collections.
If I wasn’t doing this I\’d be… involved in the arts in some capacity.
The reason I still get up in a morning is… because I have so much creative passion.
It’s because of this job I drive a… Mercedes Benz.
I treat myself by… being pampered in a spa and nail salon.
I wish I could resist… chocolate – it’s my guilty pleasure.
My unfulfilled ambition is… having a family one day.
When I’ve retired I want people to say… that I always did my best.

According to Mischa’s Twitter page (@MischAmazing), Mischa will be appear on Fashion Police with Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourne. The show airs on the E! network but I’m not sure if Mischa will appear in this week’s episode or if it was filmed for a later date.
Doing E! Fashion Police this morning with Joan, Kelly and Melissa ! Should be a blast!
This has been an odd title to follow, lol! I think we first heard of Mischa joining this project back in February 2009. Everything seemed to be going fine until things stopped and everything went silent. Then last year, another article comes out announcing Willa Holland, Drew Van Acker, Rumer Willis and Matt Dallas as Mischa’s co-stars. Again, it feels like things have picked up. Then shortly after that, silence. Only this time the project disappears from IMDb altogether seemingly indicating that The Sicnece of Cool was not meant to be.
But today, a new article comes out with a new write-up on financing and a new cast member: Nick Krause. Since this new article only talks about Mischa and Nick, I’ve got no idea if any of the original cast or crew are still behind the movie. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. And we’ll also have to wait and see if this new article leads to an actual production commitment.
As an aside, the article indicates that Mischa will possibly be starring in another movie called Love Blurs Boundaries. Read the full article below:
Bal has role on new film
A PLYMOUTH man has bagged a role in an American movie.
But Bal Kumar won’t be on screen – he’ll be organising the finance for teen comedy The Science of Cool.
Bal, a director and writer, is the British producer for the film which will star Mischa Barton (of US and UK TV hit The OC) and Nick Krause (who played alongside George Clooney in Oscar-nominated comedy-drama The Descendants).
He hopes a spin-off from the US job will help push his feature directorial debut in a personal project, UK drama Love Blurs Boundaries.
Bal, 40, said: “The connection came because of connections through my film.
“They are looking to finance The Science of Cool here, but it will be shot in America.
“I also have Mischa reading for my film and the US connection means it will have a distributor there.”
He describes the new comedy as much in the spirit of Weird Science, the 1985s hit in which two teens create a real woman using a computer program. The Science of Cool has a couple of science geeks having their socially inept lives transformed by a laboratory formula which transforms them into hunks. But their problems are not over.
The budget is tiny by US movie standards, but the money required, up to £1.75m, dwarfs that needed for Love Blurs Boundaries. Bal is about half way there to the £500,000 needed for the British film which he plans to begin shooting this summer with a cast including Wil Johnson (Waking The Dead) and Kayvan Novak (George Clooney vehicle Syriana and award-winning British comedy Four Lions).
He describes the British project as a 21st century take on Romeo and Juliet with a cross-cultural theme.
Bal’s previous projects include several short films, with writing and director credits, among them Mother’s Journey about two migrants’ move to Britain from India.
His work has attracted international attention and been shown at the London Film festival.

been involved as a producer and co-producer on larger projects including Cuckoo (with Richard E Grant) and Hard Shoulder (starring Wil Johnson), experience which has helped with financing and casting Love Blurs Boundaries.
He loves on the Hoe and divides his time between completing a PhD on the representation of minorities in cinema and teaching drama and performance to disabled adults in the city.
“The Science of Cool is so exciting,” says Bal. “This could be a career changer for me.”
IMDb has added a new movie to Mischa’s in-development slate called “Girl Without a Planet.” The details for the project are currently very limited as it is evidently still within the ‘script’ stage.
I haven’t been able to find a synopsis, but the following actors are also listed as part of the cast: Edward Furlong, AnnaLynne McCord, Joan Collins, Iggy Pop, Cherie Currie and John Lydon.
A couple of the above names aren’t really known for their acting, so since this project is still in its very early stages, take everything with a grain of salt.
Also, there are several directors listed for the movie. So that either means that one hasn’t been chosen. Or it will be one of those movies that has several different storylines with different directors for each arc. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Thanks to Caleb for the tip!
Tyler Shields just announced on Twitter that a new shoot with Mischa is on the horizon! Exciting I know that the first shoot was a little polarizing, but isn’t that the point of certain artists and photographers?
Just finished shooting Mischa Barton does not mess around SHE KILLED IT!
Check out this bonus web clip of Mischa and June Ambrose shopping at a vintage store. As with all VH1 videos, unfortunately not everyone will be able to view it.
Just a quick news blast thanks to the @Growze_Clothing page, Mischa will be hosting the launch party of the first Growze clothing store in LA on March 20th.
