Actor Mischa Barton has revealed that she still suffers from depression. The former O.C. star, who checked into a psychiatric hospital last year, said that she feels better now, but has not fully recovered.
“I balance (depression) with positive things in my life and that’s why I have my outlets. As much as I get down, I’m an upbeat person. People always think of me as kind of a light in a room — I love to make people laugh,” she said.
Barton also said that she uses music and literature as outlets to feel better.
