Life goes on for Mischa Barton!
Over a month since the CW network announced plans to halt production on fashion drama The Beautiful Life after just two episodes, the ill-fated show’s star is now looking for a new gig.
“I’m just figuring out what my next move will be and really looking at a lot of different projects and figuring out what I want to do,” the star, 23, told Usmagazine.com at the Mr. Chow 30th anniversary party in NYC Tuesday.
Although she told Us that “people really liked” the show — loosely based on executive producer Ashton Kutcher’s days as a model — she added that she’s moving on. “I just don’t think the time was right,” she said, “and that was just a really sh—y situation.”
Still, the show’s quick cancellation isn’t discouraging Barton — who was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. for psychiatric evaluation in July — from sticking with the small screen as opposed to movies. “I think they’re both great,” she told Us. “These days, television is about just as good as movies… I’m looking forward to being part of something that is right in the future.”
