Mischa Barton: “Fearne Cotton is a joke”


Mischa Barton has exclusively told OK! that she is furious about how she was portrayed in Fearne Cotton’s documentary.

Troubled star Mischa Barton was followed around by Fearne Cotton a camera crew in show that delved into the young star’s life.

However, the 24-year-old has hit back explaining that she felt wrongly portrayed in the documentary.

Mischa said: “I think Fearne Cotton’s show is a joke and she’s a joke. I can’t hear Fearne’s name without seeing red.

“I wish I hadn’t done it and that’s bad because there are enough misconceptions about me in the press. She’s got nothing to lose if she makes a more salacious story, she’s only got everything to gain.

“I just find her messed up to be honest.”

During the programme there was a point where Mischa kept Fearne waiting around outside her home.

Mischa says: “Fearne never let on that she was irritated about waiting. She acts like everything’s so great and she loves you and they cut it together and make it seem like it was a terribly painful experience for them.

“I don’t want to start a feud with her, it’s not worth it to me. She likes the fame, it doesn’t affect her like it affects the people she’s documenting.”

She added: ‘I cried my eyes out when I first saw it because I was like: ‘Are you kidding me? This is the way you want to portray me? I’ve let you into my life.”

Fearne and Mischa Barton – The Caps

Here are the screen captures from the Fearne And Mischa Barton show.

She looked really beautiful throughout the whole thing!

Fearne and Mischa Barton – The Videos

Here is Mischa’s appearance on “Fearne And…” which aired last night on ITV2 in the UK.

[Part 3] [Part 4]

Mischa was a trending topic on Twitter in the UK while this aired and a lot of people had strong opinions on the show. Some people thought Mischa was  snobby/a diva while others had some kinder opinions. IMO, it was a pretty fun segment, but we didn’t really learn anything new. I think a 10 minute sit down interview with some more complex questioning would have been a better option over having Fearne just run around following Mischa. Especially since Fearne was complaining about the long delays, lol.

I can only speak for myself in saying this, but I’m a fan of Mischa because she’s not who you expect her to be. On face value, you’d assume that such a beauty would fit into that California Girl lifestyle to a tee. But instead she’s this eclectic mix of New York, London and LA so you never really know which influence is going to come out more on any given day. The press would be much easier on Mischa if she were just a run of the mill California actress, but its the quirks and the imperfections that make Mischa interesting. There’s a story and there’s a journey with Mischa that you just don’t get with many other stars.

Fearne And Mischa Barton Sept. 8th, ITV2

Fearne And…Mischa Barton will air Wednesday September 8th at 9pm on ITV2.

The first episode of the series sees Fearne meet Hollywood actress Mischa Barton.

Mischa shot to fame with her role as Marissa in The OC back in 2003. She has rarely been seen on our screens since her character was killed in 2006 but the press are still fascinated with her, following and documenting her every move.

Fearne sets out to discover what Mischa is doing now and why she causes such intrigue. She visits Mischa at her home in LA and goes out in her Cadillac with her and the actress explains that she is constantly living under the gaze of the paparazzi. Fearne also visits Mischa when she is in London and discovers that she was born in the city and her sister is a barrister there. Mischa tells Fearne: “Growing up in New York but having a very English family and background has really served me well, I think.” Fearne visits the office where Mischa designs her handbags and tries to find out about her night out the evening before with singer Amy Winehouse. The presenter also goes with Mischa to one of her London boltholes and gets to meet some of her friends.

Plus, as Fearne spends more time with her, she starts to question her about more sensitive subjects like her weight, which has been a hot topic of debate in the press. [ITV Press]

Mischa to appear on Fearne And…

According to The Sun, Mischa has filmed an interview for a show hosted by British personality Fearne Cotton.

MISCHA Barton is set to reveal all about her breakdown in a one-off show with Fearne Cotton, TV Biz can reveal.

Radio One host Fearne, 28, flew to the US to interview the 24-year-old for the second series of ITV2 show Fearne And…

Mischa, former star of The OC, checked into a psychiatric unit last summer.

I haven’t been able to find an air date or any other information so maybe some of the British visitors can shed more light on this.
