Mischa Barton - Mischa Barton Seething Over Dui Reference In Bling Ring

Actress Mischa Barton has blasted Sofia Coppola over a casual reference to her drink-driving shame in new movie The Bling Ring.

The former The O.C. star was upset after learning her arrest for driving under the influence (Dui) is mentioned by a character in Coppola's latest film, which was inspired by the real-life teens who snatched more than $3 million (£1.9 million) worth of goods from the Hollywood homes of A-listers such as Paris Hilton.

One character is heard telling her pals, "Mischa Barton got a Dui" but the line has infuriated Barton, who took to her Twitter.com page to vent her frustration at the director, writing, "Really Sofia Coppola... The Bling Ring... my name? Shame on you."

The actress then added, "The whole idea of this movie, granted, I haven't seen it, creeps me out... The Bling Ring... undeserved."

Barton checked into rehab after she was arrested on suspicion of Dui in 2007. She was sentenced to 36 months on probation and ordered to attend alcohol education classes and pay a fine.
