Mischa Barton and Gian Marco Flamini
(On how she ended up being sawed in half by a Japanese magician during a TV appearance there in 2006) He started off by showing me a card trick, which was really cool and totally fooled me. Then he asked if I'd be happy to help him out with another trick, and I thought it would be another card trick or something like that, so I said 'yes'. But, when they rolled the box out onto the stage, I knew that someone was going to get sawed in half, and I was pretty sure it wasn't going to be him!
  • She was born in the same London hospital as her Notting Hill co-star Hugh Grant.
  • In January 2011, it was rumored that Mischa was one of the celebrities being considered for the next season of Dancing With The Stars.
  • Although Mischa has had pierced ears since the middle of 2009, she only rarely wears earrings. Because she doesn't wear earrings very often, the holes in her earlobes can be quite difficult to see if she hasn't worn earrings for a while.
  • She was offered the role of Georgina Sparks in Gossip Girl, but turned it down.
  • In July 2009, Mischa was forced to spend several weeks in Ceders-Sinai Medical Center, having been taken there by police on July 15th. Mischa later denied media reports that she had suffered a nervous breakdown, and explained that her hospitalization was actually the result of botched surgery to remove all four wisdom teeth.
