Mischa Barton Thinks Press Is Obsessed with Her Weight, Is Delusional

Mischa Barton has been looking kind of thin lately, but her weight hasn't exactly been front-page news. The last time we wrote about her was when she wore a see-through top to a NYC fashion show and was reportedly being "a real pain in the ass" about covering up. But Mischa apparently believes her thin frame has become a media obsession.

She addressed the "crazy press about [her] weight" in a blog post:
Too Fat, Too Thin: Here's What I Think…
So lately there's been a lot of crazy press about my weight and just so you guys know I'm happier and healthier than ever so there is no need to worry about me. Things are really well in Mischa world and I've just been watching what I eat.

I still love my pilates and yoga, and have cut back on fatty foods a bit. My time in India and Paris really just helped me lose a little bit of weight but there's nothing drastic going on!

I appreciate the concern, I just wish the press wouldn't harbor on it as I think it's very unhealthy for young girls to read about and pay attention to. To my female fans: Just be happy and secure with yourself and don't let other people's perceptions of you dictate the way you live your life.
While I admire Mischa's willingness to dispense Hallmark card advice, her statement seems a teensy bit conceited. There really hasn't been much speculation about her weight--definitely not on the Jessica Simpson or Lindsay Lohan level--and by writing this statement, she's probably drawn more attention to the matter than previously existed.

Call me a cynic, but that's probably what she'd hoped for.
