Mischa Barton can't get it right. Her weight, in ounces, has never quite hit the Numberwang that will stop her from being called too fat or too thin, as a look back through the archives reveals:
Her face is drawn, her cheeks are sunken and her collarbone is protruding sharply.
To the outside world she looks gaunt and unwell, but it seems in Hollywood the shockingly thin look is back in fashion.
Too thin? Wait:
But despite her sporty attire, the slender 22-year-old's extremely pale thighs already appear to have some issues with cellulite.
Former O.C. star Mischa appears to have gained some weight since leaving the show which made her famous.
Too fat? Wait:
in January where she looked frail and gaunt after dropping from a healthy size 12 to a size 6-8.
Too thin? Wait:
The 23-year-old appeared to have piled on the pounds last month and was looking extremely pale and unhealthy.
The last two sentences come from the same story by the Daily Mail. Too fat and too thin at the same time? Wow, that's got to be a first. But it does come with a caveat that it's nothing bloody whatsoever to do with the Mail, in that this is a cut-n-shut job from those brightly-coloured women's magazines you see in dentists' waiting rooms:
Sources told Mail Online that the actress's face has swelled considerably since undergoing the dental procedure last month.
Sources? What sources are these?
‘When her love life is out of sorts she just lets herself go and hits the party scene,’ a source is quoted as telling Closer magazine.
It's not just Mischa, though, who can't get it right on the Mail's Procrustes' bed of too fat/too thin. Here's someone who is daring to be happy, despite not being the right weight, as decided arbitrarily by the Mail!
Her curves were encased in a rather shapeless grey frock, which did not do her figure many favours.
Nevertheless, the 26-year-old looked happy, flashing a smile for photographers and chatting on the phone outside a London hotel.
How dare she look happy, despite not being the right weight, as determined by the Mail's sliding scale of fatty/skinny! Outrageous scenes! Doesn't she know she should be crying into her hanky at not being the exact perfect precise weight?! Disgraceful.
