Mischa Barton’s weight gain has been the talk of the town this week, but the American actress is already taking great strides towards getting back in shape. The former star of Hollywood drama The OC was spotted walking her Pekinese dog along California’s Abbot Kinney Blvd in her gym gear before meeting up with a friend for a healthy green smoothie. Despite being make-up free, Mischa’s natural beauty shone through as she sat back and enjoyed the sunshine.
The star had clearly deserved her rest, as she tweeted: “I am really blasting on this workout regimen! And as a reward for a clean healthy living week I got the most glorious weather Friday! Woot!”
Previously one of TV’s hottest young stars, the 28-year-old was sporting a fuller figure after previously stating she is “someone who naturally struggles with their weight”. Mischa is highly motivated to get back in shape and it is great to see her looking so happy and relaxed. By her own admission, the showbiz industry is unforgiving so it is impressive that she has been able to take the recent criticism in her stride: “It’s tough. It’s really tough when you are young in this business. People blow a lot of hot air at you. That’s the main thing. Keep your head on your shoulders – even when you think your head is on your shoulders, sometimes it isn't!”
FORZA HIIT celebrity trainer to the stars Ian Guildford says: “It is obvious that Mischa has started a new training regime and it seems to be something that works very well for her. Inevitably she will have days when she falls off the wagon but the important thing is that she sees this as a long journey back to fitness and not something that is going to happen overnight. When somebody has been thin for most of their life and then suddenly starts to experience weight issues the consequences can be quite dramatic, so it is good to see that Mischa now seems to have things under control.”
Mischa is currently filming upcoming action movie Operator and has also just been announced as the lead role in the hotly anticipated supernatural thriller Cloudland. Expect to see Mischa looking back to her best in time for the film’s release next year.
