Actress Mischa Barton Goes on Bizarre Rant About Hospitalization

On Friday's The View, Actress Mischa Barton got flustered when asked about her recent hospitalization. When Barbara Walters pointed out that she was placed in a psychiatric ward, Barton shifted gears, blaming it all on dental work.

"Right, I mean, it was just ... I was overwhelmed," she said. "I had too much work going on. I had a surgery for my wisdom teeth that went really badly. I had been in the hospital. I had two surgeries on my wisdom teeth. I had four taken out and they had gotten it really badly wrong. They had to drill into my jaw and I was just in really excruciating pain."

"When they take you into the hospital for something when it goes really wrong if you're having a meltdown and you say something like 'I feel like I want to die,' ... they start injecting you with things to calm down," she explained. "Like I'm petrified of needles. Like absolutely petrified ... you can't come anywhere ... I had my blood drawn once in my life for my insurance."

Alas, Barton says she is doing better these days. "I just figure that if you hit rock bottom like that ... and you're around people, you know, you realize I'm nothing like these people," she said.
