Mischa Barton has been in a couple times in the last 3 or 4 days. Last time she was in her and Mary-Kate Olson had a little "run-in" together- Both were checking out at the same time, MK came over said hello, they did the girly kisscheeks thing and made (very) small talk. Mischa told MK that she had just got back from SanFran (or was it SanDiego?) and apparently she got stuck in an elevator after some type of autograph signing, the both of them concluded those things suck, there are so much people who show up- it's hot, its crazy, both rolled eyes- anyways lets cut to today.
Mishca is checking out. She's got tons of stuff- more than usual. A shopping cart full- something about the size of a small family needs- Anyways, she's checking out, I'm bagging for her, "Plastic, yeah, uhh Plastic Sure." About 8 or 9 bagsfull later I ask if she's going to need help to her car (common procedure) and she told me- "Uhh, no, um, I can handle it, Im down the street" That immediately raised ?s in my mind because we have our own parking garage, secure, private, and it just makes sense- She doesnt want to use the cart and suddenly it all makes sense. She calls her "assistant- I mean friend, uhh yeah, he'll help me" she fixes her glasses, gets on her sidekick and pushes the cart out the door and stops just in time for the papparazzi outside to start snapping photos. She declined the help to the car, declined the use of the cart, declined her own privacy- and that is when I finally understood that her "acting" like she didnt want peoople taking pictures of her is exactly what she really did want. Now I am not a journalist, nor do I know her personally so maybe when she said "uhh, go away" (to the papparazzi) she meant it. However- it is my opinion that- that is the last thing she really would have wanted. I instructed the man with the camera to get off our private property- so he hopped onto the sidewalk, snapped tons of pics and walked backwards as Mischa and her "assistant, I mean friend" walked to her car. She was carrying about 4 or 5 bags (the light ones, the ones with the t.p. paper towels and chips) and I went inside- never saw where the hell her car was actually parked.
So, this might be a "boring" post but I thought some might care- Kirsten Dunst parks in the garage and leaves thru the back, Randy Jackson parks in the garage, leaves thru the front, Jake Gyllenhaal, MK Olson, Parker Posey and Crispin Glover- they all park in the garage... But Mischa, she likes to park down the street, outside no where near the store and carry her own bags. Well hats off to ya honey, you looked smokin' hot! ***"Just because she parks far away doesnt mean she wants to be photographed or that she is trying to....."*** Shut up, save your comments, yes it does. :) The whole situation was "different" and felt too fixed or setup. It felt like she was going thru so much un-needed trouble to make this look "natural"
Just in case none of the pics from today make it to the site she was wearing gold rimmed sunglasses, long dangly ear-rings and she looked really great.
