Mischa Barton says she’s staying in New York even though her show, “The Beautiful Life,” got canned. At the Sony Vaio launch at Guastavino, Barton said, “I grew up in the city, so there’s a lot to love about it. All my close friends are here. I feel it’s a fun city to lay low in and you get treated right.” About her next career move, she said, “There’s a bunch of projects I always wanted to make, so I’m going back to thinking about things again. I just started looking at films.” NY Post
Not only did Sony debut the Vaio L Touch, it also debuted the world’s lightest Notebook (yup, lighter than MacBook Air): the X Series. Enchased in a lightweight carbon-fiber chassis, the X Series weighs just 1.6 pounds (with standard battery) and is just over a half-inch thin- roughly the width of a cell phone.
And guess who else apart from Peter Facinelli, Jill Zarin and Star Jones came to salute the new tech launches? Mischa Barton!
She looked absolutely stunning in a biker-chic, laid back “I’m a bad gal” way with her miniskirt, leather jacket and ankle-length boots.
BD: What brings you here?
MB: Honestly, I’m not very computer savvy, I don’t really go online much on Twitter. But I love computers.
BD: What’s next for you now?
MB: Well, I’m just looking at projects and scripts (note that the actress was going to be a lead in The Beautiful Life on CW when the network cut the show) and looking at films. And Ashton (Kutcher, who was the show’s producer) was so great about the whole thing.
BD: So would you move back to LA?
MB: No, I live in the city, I love NYC!
Note: at this point Mischa was whisked away by her publicist, but she looked great and her skin was glowing and flawless. I was going to ask her about her favorite beauty products…but ah well, there will be a next time!
