Mischa Barton - Mischa Barton Snubbing Tv Work To Focus On Rest

Actress Mischa Barton has no plans to return to TV work in the near future because she's "at a restful place" in her life.
The star entered the public eye at 17 after landing a lead role in The O.C., but has tackled several personal problems in recent years - in 2009 she was placed on involuntary psychiatric hold, following the cancellation of her TV series The Beautiful Life.
The meltdown, which Barton blamed on botched dental surgery, came two years after she was charged with driving under the influence, stemming from a December 2007 arrest in Los Angeles.
Barton has remained largely out of the spotlight since the dramas, and she tells website Zap2It that she's not actively hunting for a new role.
She says, "TV is not something I'm looking at right now for a second, just because I'm really at a restful place in my life. I'm really just taking my downtime.
"I've seen a lot of other girls who just kept going and kind of spazzed out and I'm just really grateful to be settled right now and not working and not doing anything but working on myself. I just feel really blessed with a convergence of really good things going on right now, so I'm not in a rush to do a project.
"I think television is gruelling and this year there's been such an uproar with like the Charlie Sheens of actors - well, I think he's amazing - but I just think it's not the time for me to be on television. I'll just wait a second on it, but I do like TV. It's a good forum."
