Continuing about with life in the Big Apple, Mischa Barton was spotted out hailing a cab in New York City on Wednesday afternoon (August 19).
The former "OC" star puffed away on a cigarette as she waited for her transport, enjoying a little time away from the set of her new CW show, "The Beautiful Life".
In related news, recent reports tell that Miss Barton has been under pressure to drop the pounds as she portrays Sonja Stone, a diva supermodel with a bad drug addiction.
"She knows that means they are calling her fat behind her back. She knows she is heavier than she needs to be, but to hear it like that? It really shook her," a source allegedly told The Star.
"She's broken down in tears more than once before shooting. It's a lot of pressure for someone who is just out of hospital," the insider adds.
And though it seems a bit cruel, a Barton pal tells that she's always been able to shed the pounds when needed, saying, "She's always been able to lose weight fast. Everyone knows she's been struggling, so people are just really rooting for her."
