Bet You Didn't Think Mischa Barton Drove An Unreliable Old Cadillac

6/20/2010 7:05pm EDT
Mischa Barton
Mischa Barton was left stranded in Los Angeles again on Thursday - after her unreliable vintage Cadillac broke down for the second time in as many months.

The actress' beloved bright blue vehicle failed to start, and she was left out on the roads by herself in the early hours of the morning waiting for a tow truck.

Barton also experienced car troubles last month - the Cadillac failed to start following a shopping trip to The Grove mall and had to be towed away for repair.

Rachel Bilson
Rachel Bilson showed up at amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala in France last week, and we couldn't help but notice how she drew attention to her ta-tas with feathers and sequins. If you've got it, flaunt it. If you don't...decorate it?

Facts you may not know about Rachel:
-She has Hollywood in her blood, dating back to her great grandparents. They were a producer and writer.
-She landed the role of Summer in "The O.C." with barely any acting experience.
-She is obsessed with shoes and loves to shop at Target.

Mischa Barton Is A Hot Mess Showing Off Her Cans In Cannes

Mischa Barton
Mischa Barton showed some junk in the trunk not too long ago when she was spotted wearing high-waist yellow jeans. The actress is showing off a little plumpness again - only this time it's in a different spot.

Mischa wore a white satin chiffon Marchesa gown with a ruffled off-the-shoulder neckline at the "2010 amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS" near Cannes yesterday. Cleavage, much?

Ex-boyfriend Brandon Davis recently called her "one of the fattest people on the planet." In a post on Twitter, he wrote: "Omg. Just realized my ex turned in to 1 of the fattest people on the planet. I'm gonna star...

Rachel Bilson looked radiant in New York City on Wednesday in a blue asymmetrical dress that was cinched at the waist with a couple of black belts.

The actress was out on to town to celebrate the grand opening of Sunglass Hut's new flagship store on Manhattan's famed Fifth Avenue. She is a new ambassador for the eyewear brand.

Rachel told Women's Wear Daily, "I can't say what makes me a good style adviser for them, but I am a huge sunglasses addict. I don't leave the house without [a pair]."

Ex Claims He Didn't Make Cruel Mischa Barton Comments

Mischa Barton
Socialite Brandon Davis has fired back at criticism he received for poking fun at ex-girlfriend Mischa Barton's weight woes via Twitter.com, insisting the comments were not his.

The actress was devastated after reading what appeared to be a cruel 'tweet' from her ex, but Davis claims he doesn't even have a Twitter.com account - and the taunting had nothing to do with him.

The post read, "Omg (oh my God). Just realized my ex turned in to 1 of the fattest people on the planet. I'm gonna start dating plus size models. Not! Mischa the Hefer (sic)."

Outraged Davis has since reached out to In ...

Brandon Davis Brands Mischa Barton 'One Of The Fattest People On The Planet'

4/9/2010 9:08am EDT
Brandon Davis
Mischa Barton was reportedly seen close to tears at a showbiz party on Wednesday after an ex-boyfriend branded her "one of the fattest people on the planet."

Oil heir Brandon Davis aimed the cruel comments at former The O.C. star Barton after spotting her at Nylon magazine's 11th anniversary bash in Los Angeles.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, he wrote: "Omg (oh my God). Just realized my ex turned in to 1 of the fattest people on the planet. I'm gonna start dating plus size models. Not! Mischa the Hefer (sic)."

The Sensational Won Over The CW: A Look at The Network's New 2009 Fall Shows

The Beautiful Life
The first thing that struck me when the creators of The Beautiful Life addressed a crowd of bloggers who just watched their episode one cutdown (a hype package full of fast cuts, pretty people, and loud music) was how much producer Karey Burke looks like Leslie Mann. She could be on this show as one of the model mentors! The second thing was that executive producer Mike Kelley, who also worked on The O.C., wasn't going to give us the truth behind Mischa Barton's troubles because he was still giddy over being called "airport guy" in paparazzi shots of her returning to New York to shoot the s...

We all have our favorite shows, especially the ones we used to beg mom and dad to let us stay up and watch.

Adam Brody Disappointed He Didn't See Megan Fox's Breasts

Adam Brody was left feeling disappointed during filming of upcoming movie Jennifer's Body because he missed out on seeing co-star Megan Fox's breasts during her topless scene.

Fox plays a sexy cheerleader-turned-maneater in the dark comedy and strips off in one saucy shot, with only her long hair to cover her nipples. Brody, who plays a devil-worshipping rocker in the movie, had hoped to catch a glimpse of Fox's famous assets - but missed out.

He says, "I don't think there are any nipples in the movie. I knew this going in and I remember being a little disappointed - like the rest of ...

Peter Gallagher Discusses 'Adam,' An Offbeat Love Story Challenged By Asperger's Syndrome

"Adam," is the story of an off-beat romance between Beth (Rose Byrne) and Adam (Hugh Dancy) that is challenged by his affliction with Asperger's Syndrome -- an affliction that, as Wikipedia describes, is an "autism spectrum disorder, and people with it therefore show significant difficulties in social interaction." Peter Gallagher, who plays Beth's loving but very flawed father, Marty, joins us to discuss the new film (opening in limited release July 29) and to breakdown the complexity of his character.

According to foxnews.com, friends and acquaintances have been trying to get Mischa Barton into some sort of treatment for months, including Lindsay Lohan.

The two used to party together into the early morning hours. But last year, Lindsay walked away from the friendship after a chaotic Mischa pushed Lindsay over the edge. Sources close to Lohan tell the website that the two girls haven't spoken for months, but Lindsay would help Mischa if she asked for help to get through this latest disaster.

Why 'Southland' Is Must-See TV

4/28/2009 12:12pm EDT
Southland
In the past few seasons for network TV, there have been a few shows that were destined for greatness from their very first pilot episodes: Arrested Development, Desperate Housewives, Friday Night Lights, Heroes, Lost and The Office.

That's it, that's the list. And of those six shows, one was cancelled due to low ratings ("Arrested Development"), one is on life-support ("Friday Night Lights"), and two were in danger after having lost their way - no pun intended, but "Lost" managed to find its way back while "Heroes" is struggling. "Housewives" still has its foundation of viewers but is...

The new web-series "Rockville, CA" is the brainchild of Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Chuck & Gossip Girl). The series centers on a group of 20-somethings who gather regularly at a club to hear their favorite up-and-coming bands, blow off steam, and fall in love with the wrong people.

Fashion Fail: Mischa Barton's Pork Pie Hat

Mischa Barton
Mischa Barton arrived at the G-Star 2009 Fall Fashion Show yesterday wearing a black pork pie hat and very long hair extensions. Her black leather pants and sexy heels are hot,

but the rest of the outfit - white shirt and black jacket - falls flat.

Perhaps the former O.C. star is showing off her British pride: the hat gets its name from its resemblance to a pork pie (a traditional British meat pie).

Attack Of The Comic Book Movies

2/12/2009 12:02pm EST
Watchmen
Bringing comic book heroes (and villains) to the big screen has meant big bucks for movie studios in recent years. With huge budgets and state of the art special effects, it's easier than ever for filmmakers to convincingly create the fantasy worlds that classic comic characters inhabit, both delighting die-hard "geeks," and captivating folks who've never picked up a comic book in their lives.

Comic book films have always been popular, dating back to the movie serials of the 1940s featuring Superman, Batman, and Flash Gordon, just to name a few. Christopher Reeve's "Superman" in 1978...

Sometimes I wonder about Gossip Girl. I mean, how is it possible that everyone gets their college acceptance letters (on their cell phones, no less) at the exact same time? I thought that sort of milestone was still reserved for snail mail. And, what's even odder is that Blair's father (John Shea) and his French lover flew into town for the big day. And with all that anticipation, Blair (Leighton Meester) still got waitlisted for Yale. At least she didn't get rejected. But, in her eyes, she might have well been. I really do ponder how much Josh Schwartz takes from the Gossip Girl books, rec...
